Here we have Frankie playing Luis’ tournament 1750 Imperial Guard list vs. Will with my Wolves and a Land Raider Achilles. This will help to show what the Achilles is really like on the table top. We will continue to play test units from Imperial Armor Apocalypse Second Edition so that everyone out there can see them in action. We will do this whether these units are included into the Bay Area Open 2012 or not, as we just enjoy trying out new things.
One game doesn’t prove anything absolutely, but as you can see, a lot of the hype about the Achilles is pretty overblown. We’ll try it again and see how it plays, but it isn’t that hot, in our opinions. Frankie Immobilized it turn 2 with Vendettas. I think the Caestus is quite a bit better, but hey, that is just my opinion.
What do you all think? Does this video change your opinion on the Achilles or no?
