In the game he's worth a whopping 300 points, making him the joint most expensive bug in my arsenal - that's equivalent to twenty Warrior Bugs.
He was a nice simple model to build though a little tricky to paint. I had to try a couple of times to get the blue right.
Here's a picture of his ass.
You can see the trooper in the foreground here for scale. That's one big bug!
In the game he's a long range artillery piece with plenty of wounds. And I have never used him!
I painted him during my last splurge of Starship Troopers painting a year and a half ago. But we can imagine him being good in the game. For now.
