Deepstrike and move through cover. Extra lethality.

Though I can't be the only one thinking that the order names are incredibly stupid. XD

That is an amazing Army men toy model, the fact it's proportionate and everything is so beautiful for use as a Taroux too!

But ye, since they get the Sniper special rule they will wound on 4s, rend on 6s. And you get to Rapid fire since, well, Rapid Fire. The name of the orders from what I've been spoiled sound nothing like orders but more like you're putting in cheat codes to buff up your guys. And with the effects they give, it pretty much is!

It reminds me of the second level in CoD Black Ops. While you're escaping the prison.

STEP 1, SECURE THE KEYS.

Except, DIRECTED FIRESTORM! SANCTIONED!

yeah sniper rule makes you wound anything on 4s but you are only able to fire a single shot with this order and cannot assault in that turn but I think its still worth its weight in gold to take out a wraithknight!

Been kitting it out with the standard cannon and autocannons since they're both the same range and complement each other well at having the same strength and AP. On top of that it just glides over terrain effortlessly since it's able to reroll dangerous terrain checks. If you treat it like a land speeder with typhoon missile launchers, you'll be ok. Filled with a squad of storm troopers, it acts as a great deterrent unit to protect vulnerable targets like artillery pieces.
What would your opinion on armored fist Taurox spam be? I'm thinking IFs with an LC and PG/Sniper each.
Clearly Superior.

I think they'll work well for those who want to use the storm troopers as they light as well make them troops by allying in the militarium tempestus
