Horus Heresy Review: Dracosan Armoured Transport

This is the armoured and armed transport for the Solar Auxilia troops. The background materials makes mention that it is constructed to the same high standard of that expected by the Astartes Legions, which makes this beast an interesting option.

Really good armour on the front (AV=13), a whopping 5 HP, all combined with serious weapons and tremendous transport capacity makes this transport a force to be reckoned with. Both in terms of its duty as a troops carrier and in terms of the threat level that it represents.

The real problem here is the price tag associated with it, coupled with the AV=11 on the rear. There will not be too many of these transports in an army when these points could be spent on equally useful Tercios.

I have  couple of suggested build here, as below.

Dracosan, Armoured Ceramite (155 points)
This is probably the baseline build. The armoured ceramite is almost a given in 30k as it will help negate the benefits of melta guns.

Dracosan, Demolisher Array, Armoured Ceramite (185 points)
The points cost here is starting to increase steeply, but the demolisher cannon is a great tool to have in the army.

Dracosan, Armoured Ceramite, Dozer Blade, Auxiliary Drive, Flare Shield, Extra Armour (205 points)
For when you are carrying cargo (troops) that absolutely must get somewhere no matter what they face.
