I'm kind of grooving on the Deimos Pattern Predator Executioner. Probably won't work out as well on the flimsier platform as the LR Executioner does, but it's certainly going to be non-ignorable, and it looks pretty cool.
I do wish all the Deimos Pattern Predator variants had the curved gunshields on the Sponsons like the original Predator Model, but they're still pretty cool even without them.
I was thinking about those while failing to fall asleep last night. I think they're going to work out much like Doomsday Arks: Take two, put one in each corner, and go for the cross-board shots. Take advantage of the Turret Mount and the fact that turning in place doesn't count as moving to keep the AV13 toward the biggest threats while throwing S10 AP1 Large Blasts long-ways across the field.
Might be worth adding Heavy Bolter Sponsons since it switches to more of an Anti-Infantry profile once you get into Range for either of the Sponson options.
The best thing about them is GK can't use them... So it's basically like a toned down Leman Russ executioner, unless you make it the best non apocalyptic weapon in the game at over 42". When looking at the firing calibration rule, does anyone else get the feeling it's going to be given to an infantry model? I think it may be a terminator weapon, as it mentions relentless.
I am the one, camouflage and guns risk my life to keep my people from harm. Authority vested in me I sacrifice with my brothers in arms. Stay the course, reasonable force I believe I serve a greater good. Smoke and dust, enemies are crushed nothing left, where a man once stood. Locked and loaded voices screaming, let's go, come on do it, here we go.
I know we're past them but the Terminators are meh. I don't like the Contemptor though so I suppose I was never really destined to like them. As far as Cosmic's dislike for the back packs goes I can agree, but I think they do add a decent level of continuity to anyone collecting a retro Space Marine army so for that reason I think it was a decent choice.
That squig however is ace. I would love to see some squig-orientated Ork armies include some of those models.

Squigs are awesome... don't let gobbo's stop you getting cool models, I use the smaller squig riders in apocalypse as bigger bomb squigs, gobbo fanatics as bomb squigs that will instantly immobilise walkers (but are useless vs tanks) and have a horde of gobbo spearmen as grots with no gun but +1 strength and archers which use their arrers like grot pistols.
Once I've filled out my quota of Ork aircraft I may get some more squigs since the huge ones look so cool!
