    Because it took me a while to remember what it was called, and it feels relevant all of a sudden.

    for when someone looks at CB's suggested Infinity stats and wants to top them. :)

    I guess it will be an "autoexclude" in ITS, given how insanely expensive it should be with 5 Wounds. Even if being S9 brings it a serious discount. Sure, it is the biggest, baddest mother of twelve bastards we have seen, like, ever. But you still need to feed it Orders. And if S9 is - as I expect, as wide as S8, but taller, it is going to be pretty easy to draw LOS to it with your heavy weapons.

    And it is going to be born / hatched / activated with a gorram big crosshair painted on it.

    "I'll spend an order on the Megalodron, any AROs?"

    "yeah, literally everyone I have has an ARO"

    I'm 100% in this camp, but, I still want the Megolodron to be a thing. It doesn't matter if there is one giant death machine, only if "Main Battle Unit" becomes the next 'tier' above TAG and everyone has to get one.

    I'm legit just wanting a Jotum-esk unit. Big and dumb and awesome and probably never going into any of my lists. A huge Avatar with 5 STR and none of the strategos etc - which is a huge factor in why I run Avatar lists in the first place lol. I don't even know how I'd make that work

    Let me play big smashy CA with a different toy!

    Edit: Man this makes me wish there was a Dropzone Commander-scale version of Infinity for the Big Battles. Doesn't fit the fluff outside of Humans vs Combined but man I'd buy the shit out of that

    You'll get to play with it, the Infinity profile is coming in the next update, just not in tournaments, which is probably for the best.

    Maybe not in tournaments, this will come in a month or two before N4 hits.

    To be fair, the only way to get it in the missions they've released is by having a modified point value list + that glorious monstrosity... that works out to only 150 points, hahaha

    4 Orders of his own? Total Immunity? Well damn. Guess that's a job for Tarik-the'-Critfisherman and his Mk12 MSV2 pal from my side.
    Would be interesting to try to play against that thing. Assume it's only going to be in vanilla..

    The narrative scenarios they just launched allow it's use in Vanilla or Sectorial CombArmy.

    Not in ITS though, they're very clear that it's not allowed in tournaments.

    From the accompanying PDF:

    The Megalodron’s Game Profile adapted to Infinity’s rules is included here. Given this miniature’s particular characteristics and size, its profile—although completely official—will not be valid for the ITS and it will not be available in Infinity Army.

    Due the exceptional Special Rules, this Mission Set cannot be used in the ITS. However, the system used in the scenarios is the same as the ITS, and the number of missions perfectly allows the organization of an Infinity Tournament, even though it would not be an official one. So, don’t wait any longer, choose a side and be a part of the Infinity Universe history!

    Regular+TacAware+Lieutenant Lvl2 is 4 orders per turn just from Meggie.

    In Defiance it also has 4 initiative cards, one for each body section!
