Either I'm blind or the MDC of the Naruni Death's Head/Knight Robot(Rifts Mercenaries) is missing, and I can't find it in any of the poste Errata.
Help out a fella? Thanks.

I dunno if you got a misprint or something but mine has it on page 136, mine's third printing though. Main body's 600, i dunno what the rules are about copying rules blocks from the books is so i'll leave youto imagine the rest.

I have the second printing, and everything's there except the MDC of the head, which is missing. Do you have that in your later printing?

Just double checked, and no it doesn't.

[Edit] Sorry I misread (been a long feqn month and it's only a week in); I thought it was the REAPER you were talking about from NE:W2.
No, the Deaths-head mecha does NOT have any head. No head for the mech.

You might want to go back and reread that page. The Death-Knight Assault Robot clearly has a head. Even if you ignore the accompanying drawing of it on the next page, in the MDC by Location table it notes that two of the sensors are located in the head, and in the fluff part in mentions how the "helmeted skeleton head design sometimes causes people to mistake it as a Coalition robot."

...this isn't one of those things where we have to pay Naruni Enterprises extra for the head?

Maybe there's some generic rules we can fall back on in situations of omission like this?

2005 thread posited there was some official rule about heads being 25% of main body, except for robots where it's 10%.

2007 FAQ mentions "The values listed for helmet, arms, & legs is obviously a percentage of that...though judging by the various armors in the RGMG, the percentage varies by maker and armor." so doesn't give a general guideline.

Applying those rules, 60 MDC seems awfully low for a vital part of an Assault robot, whereas 150 seems more realistic.
I'd say 200, since the head seems slightly disproportionate and well-armored.

"What do you mean the head costs extra?"

"you see the basic sensor package are built into a shoulder panel, the premium package costs extra."

"basic sensors?"

"oh, yes, radar, lidar, magnetic scan, and IFF overlay are all part of the basic package!"

"....where's the cameras."

"Premium....."

It's like Chipwell, before accessorization.
And basic life support?
