The data sheet is online
https://www.reddit.com/r/Warhammer40k/c ... datasheet/

It looks like a multi-melta and a missile launcher so far and it's maw
The bile spurt is like a small flamer
It has a fixed save of 5+
Armour should be around 2+ to 3+
Caf +4 around due to its maw
Move 20cm
Cost 150 for 3 estimated

Hi!

Interesting. I like that they are adding more daemon engines to the chaos factions. Khorne had so many.

Now to see how they can be added to my queue. ;)

crap it's all in 8th edition (of course) which I need to give a read to in order to port to EA stats (too much has changed to use the previous processes). Anyone up to date with the latest rules?

Edit: actually if someone has say Leman Russ stats and/or Baneblades I should be able to build out from there

Apparently trying to share screenshots from a Chromebook to a forum is a nightmare, but here's a linky:
Index Imperium II

Relevant comparisons:
- Same speed as a Leman Russ
- T7 8W 3+ Sv vs. a Russ' T8 12W 3+ Sv vs. a Rhinos T7 10W 3+ Sv vs. a Land Speeders' T5 6W 3+ Sv (also, S vs T changed this edition, with less than double your S being wounded on 5+, so 8 is the magic T at which bolters and flamers can no longer shred you)
- Has an invuln save as per normal for a daemon engine
- Standard 40K Imp Guard BS of 4+ for the Multi-Melta and Missile Launcher
- Bile spurt and Gnashing maw are probably just FF and CC weapons for EA without special rules (the plague weapon ability is pretty trivial)
- Some variant of the explosion on death thing is almost universal for vehicles in new 40K, no need to incorporate that
- Might want to work in the Putrescent Fog ability somehow though?

I only play Netepic so my stats for this were based on that not EA

Nice one!

Hrmmm so putting on my thinking cap here. I'm apt to keep it as an AV as you not, it's just over the line in T, albeit with a shitter save, so... 5+? Agreed the maul and other nurgle shit is abstracted away into the FF/CC values.

So perhaps...

Myphitic Blight Hauler
AV M:20cm, A:5+, F: 5+, C:5+
Multi-melta 15cm MW5+
and (15cm) Small Arms MW
Missile Launcher 45cm AP5+/AT6+

Notes: Invulnerable save, fearless

That looks like a pretty accurate statline to me! Now whether or not the unit would be useful at all is another question...

Post subject:  Re: Death Guard Myphitic Blight Hauler

yeah not sure what it brings to the table but still fun to have as an option. perhaps I should resurrect my collated Random Epic Stats document that had all these lost children units put into one place for those that wanted to play?

Yeah, I'll be getting one at least. 8th edition is pretty damned good and GW is just the best once again.

Seeing it in epic scale would be awesome, too, guys.
