Is it just me or does the gun hauler seem a tad underwhelming for the points? The best thing i can see using it for is screening for bigger ships and possibly troops from shooting. But its awfully close to the same cost as a frigate and it doesnt seem particularly reliable for anything but screening. Has anybody made clever use of this thing yet? It seems like it should cost maybe 160 to 180 pts for what it does.

I mean, id atleast like to see a unique gun available to it and only it to make a desirable option at any point level.

Used aside from battalions it does look a bit underwhelming, but with their specific formations it's just fine.

Wow I just noticed they upped the battallion scroll costs for kharadron an absolute ton. Its almost the cost of a gunhauler just to take the escort wing scroll. Why on earth did they think that was necessary?

well, (almost) all battalions of all armies have been increased in prices.

I suppose some were too cheap and there were too many armies with 2-3 battalions to take as many artefacts as possible.

Yea I went back over other armies and noticed. I approve of the increase. Now we can get back to incredibly diverse lists being common.

Yeah, usually I tend to play without battalions, because it gives me more freedom in my lists, so all in all I'm happy that also my opponents will have to "pay the price" if they want to use the bonuses of formations.

Agreed. I think 120 wouldve been more appropriate for the khemist.
