I believe that the Dakka Predator is what the ancient people of Internets call the monster known as Gwar.

People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

As said its a pred tank using auto cannon and heavy bolter sponsons.

Dakka name comes from the type of weapon i assume (Hvy bolter being a rapid fire and autocannon being semi rapid firing)

Both are Heavy Weapons....

I think what you mean is the Volume of shots, 6 S5 and 2 S7 shots are not too shabby for 80 points or so

I have to agree with Gwar! in this instance. It's the only thing in my Plague Marines army that is not either pointless or overcosted.

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

I meant in the fluff sense, as in the guns firing a hail of shots not the tabletop sense of heavy guns or rapid fire rule for guns like bolters

Getting my broom incase there is shenanigans.

A Dakka predator are those of us who are not allowed to be within 500' of a school.

I thought dakka predators weren't allowed within 500 feet of dakkadakka.com's server.

Gwar! said that if I told my parents Santa wouldn't bring me any presents this year.

The Emperor doesn't seem to do much for you but you sure are expected to be mutilated, suffer, and die to make him happy. And is he dead or what? If he's entombed that would mean he's dead as a doornail, right? So, how can he be happy about anything you do, or even give orders to anyone? Are you worshipping the dead now? Is that something you'd really want to do? Because it sounds freaking creepy to me.
