Why is it the death of the Heldrake? Doesn't seem to be that big of a change... Am I missing something?

Jess the Hell Drakes ranged weapons are now considered hull mounted. It doesn't reall effect the auto cannon, the bale flamer is where it hurts. That means it now has a forward firing arc, now add in the change to vector strike rules. That means you aren't getting quite then bang you used to get. Granted it was a little overpowered before. One or the other was enough to balance it. But both...

So it doesn't have a 360 degree arc of fire anymore? I mean, yeah, that's not great, but I don't think it's crippling and probably a little more inline with other flyers' capabilities. The Vector Strike change is big, but also, I think, warranted. I think it's still a pretty good unit.... but if it necessitates the creation of a new Chaos Flyer (Hell Talon/Blade), I'd be happy.

Would you say that it's a bigger blow than the Vendetta getting an increased points cost and reduced capacity? I'm asking non-rhetorically, considering you play both armies, as I do.

Honestly the increase in points to the vendetta makes it a deal breaker to me. The capacity wasnt a big deal. In an edition when points are at premium, especially when our standard games for the last two years has been 1850pts.

I was considering it before, then the rule change put that on hold. I'm a couple months I'll put some thought into it, and then a vote.
