Taurox Schmarox

Taurox2The new Imperial Guard codex(es) is right around the corner and with it some new sculpts and entirely new models. One of these is the Taurox and at first it was a bit repulsive to me, looking more orky than Imperial. But along came better leaked photos, and that gave us a much clearer image of this new interesting vehicle. Now, seeing it better, I’ve decided that it’s not terrible bad, excepting those weird mini-treads, and set out to find some vague idea of what rules will be for it.

What I happened upon were the exact rules for it and I must say that I’m sadly disappointed. I’m not the biggest fan of the Chimera, but for the points, an Ork truck is a better bargain! I’m guessing the Taurox comes with AC, leather interior and a CD player (or whatever passes for that in the 41st millenium) or is that the Prime model?

Taurox4In it’s defense, I do like that they made it a modular type vehicle, similar to our own modern military vehicles. I may still get one just to be able to put it together and even modularize it. Queen of Magnets and all. Taurox3

I’m still up in the air about how I’m going to build some of my army since we don’t have a codex yet. Especially now that it looks like Stormtroopers might have a troops option. Weren’t we supposed to have it by the end of March? C’mon rumor mill, get with it! I had thought maybe to replace a couple of Chimera with the Taurox, but now, having seen the rules, think I’ll just steal some of my sweetie’s Ork trukks if I need a flimsy all-terrainer.
