4 points is what an infantry stand pays for a save (terminator). If you
put in on a wave serpent you greately enhance the live expectancy of
transported troops, so I would charge even more points for it.
Remember: there is no vehicle (exept imperial knights, IG supreme
commander) with a save in the game. That is bound to have a reason (game
balance?), so consider to keep points high.
