  1. Been waiting for this one! Well done bringing the tantalus, I look forward to seeing how it performs. It's a beautiful model, and I've been considering getting one myself.

    1. Was a great game. I love the Tantalus. It's weapons and crew holding capacity is exceptional. Unfortunately we really had to bring it down as soon as possible as no one likes a horde of Wyches charging into a defence line. The guns can easily kill a Legionnaire and make a mess of Terminators.

      Targel really wanted to bring down that Lascannon so that the flier would be safe, so had to commit it to that.
