I recently put the building destruction tactic to the test. I armed a
Reaver with 2 of these. In three turns of firing, I never knocked
anything down. My Reaver died shortly after firing on the third turn.
I did not shed a tear, rather, I celebated it's loss!

Yes, this weapon has the potential to knock buildings down. But it's
not worth 100pts. I want to say 50pts., but could settle for 75pts.

Please don't make this weapon so expensive, no one will use it. If your
going to do that, then let's just get rid of it. This weapon is common,
has a lot of history, and is one of the things that makes Epic fun. It
really adds a lot of "Flavor" to the game. My vote is for just reducing
the warhead. Please, let's not go too far, on this one!

Termies do not save if the titan/pod is destroyed, check the rules.
If the termies can unload on the ground, I'd agree with 150pts. If not,
then this weapon has a very limited role, and should only cost 100pts.
Of course, the Termies are free. You give up a good arm weapon to get

Terminator detachment 350pts.
Landraider detachment -250pts.
Terminator Total 100pts.
