A: 2
FSR Armour: 13 – 12 – 10

Weapons: Autocannon, DCCW, Heavy Bolter
Special Rules: Slow and Purposeful

To customise a Robot’s weapon load-out, consult the lists below. A weapon can be exchanged for any on the list by paying (or adding) the points differential:

Arm Mounts:
Bolt Gun... 0
Storm-bolter... 5
Flamer... 5
Autocannon... 15
RCCW... 5
DCCW... 15
Siege Hammer... 20

Back Mounts:
Heavy Bolter... 0
Meltagun... 0
Missile Launcher... 5
Lascannon... 10

For example:
A Crusader (2 x RCCW, Heavy Bolter, 60pts) is being modified. Removing one RCCW and replacing it with a Bolt Gun will give the player back 5 points, as the Bolt Gun has a base cost of 0, while the RCCW’s is 5.
If the other RCCW is upgraded to a Siege Hammer that will then add 15 more points on, (5 base vs 20 base).
Together these changes would take the Crusader from 60 to (60 – 5 + 15) = 70 points all up .
