Land Raider Crusader/Redeemer instruction sheet question
« on: May 07, 2011, 01:02:59 AM »
Ok Recently got a Land Raider Crusader/Redeemer (Go Me woot!) and I noticed on the front picture the Crusader had its Hurricane Bolter on the Back and the Redeemer's Flamestorm Cannons were on the front. In the Instructions both weapons are said to be put in the back. Considering I am magnetizing the cannons to interchange them is their a sort of Legal ruling that anyone knows about stating where the weapons have to be mounted on the Land Raider's sides?
I ride in on my Bike with my Hat of awesome and say Nay this place should be on fire.

You can mount them front or back, doesn't make a legal difference. There's an even trade-off. If you place the guns up front, then you're placing the side doors on your assault vehicles further back, and vice versa.

If you put them behind,they might look cooler but then you will get comments like "lol ur doodz on fire!".


Putting them in the front is probably the most advantageous rules wise. The side doors are when you get the front of your land raider stuck on a mount of guardsmen.

I'm actually going to disagree with you and say that in the back would be more advantageous. Mainly because now you don't have a giant gun blocking a clear path to the front and side doors. Hell, almost all the time, I can get my termies out of the thing and still be able to shoot the template without any problems.

How are guns ever blocking the front door?

The Landraiders actually have a door at the very front that opens mechanically. You open the bottom hatch, and a lever opens the top hatch for you.

I know. So how are side-sponson guns ever blocking that front door?

Whoops, I meant path. A path from the side doors to the front.

That Really wouldn't be a problem looking at it unless your trying to unload 8 terminators or 16 models from the Land Raider Redeemer . Which you can't have 16 models in most Space Marine Squads and setting up 8 Terminators I can fit them all within 2 inches of the front door. The side door was a little more difficult but I managed to fit 7 2 inches from the side door and one 2 inches from the front door and 2 inches from a terminatour coming out the side door. In most cases from what I understand the max you want in a Terminatour assault squad is 6 more than that seems overkill for anything your using them on so it seems for at leas the flamestorm cannons you would want to mount them up front.

I actually wondered this as well when I had the model since it mentions that Kroot, which I am assuming that this is a Kroot variety, do not poop since their digestive tract is 100% efficient. I am not sure about reproduction, though if it anything like my college Dinosaurs class where everyone had to draw what they thought dinosaurs having sex would look like, it would probably be hilarious.
