Why flamers and lascannons in the infantry squads? The best equipment you can give a mechanized infantry squad is a plasmagun and a lascannon, no exceptions really.
Thats a mistake on my half, they are supposed to be Grenade Launchers. I fiquired I have enough Plasma Guns in more mobile sqauds, so they can move around to where they are needed, and deliver the hammer blow. I was also getting straped for points at this point, my list clocking in at 1991 pts. So, i could probably change a few around...
Wouldn't plasam cannon sonsons be a better option then the multi-meltas on the demolisher. Cheaper and longer-ranged, most opponents shouldn't let it get within range to use those meltas anyways
I've allways found them usefull, and it makes the enemy go "Should i knock off his big cannon, or those damned melta's?" Either way, its become a dedicated anti-tank vechile, and it should be able to perform its duties to its very last gun.
Id put heavy flamer sponsons on the multimelta demolisher instead. Cheaper and about as nasty.
As I said above, its my dedicated anti-tank. I dont have to much faith in single BS3 Lascannons in squads. In fact, im loathe to do it, but its kind of essential.
Instead of hardened vets id take stormies, yes you lose out on one pgun but gain better chance at survivability instead.
Thats true, i may end up doing that in the end, but I was thinking of doing some nice converting. You're right though, they do live longer.
Pair up lascannons and plasma guns in your inf squads, and give them grenade launchers and flamers to your command squads instead.
I would normally, but becuase the damned squads have lascannons in them, If im shooting at tanks, im wasting shots (even if the plasma gun has a chance of damaging said tank). I would have mobile command squads running around in chimera's, delivering the fatal blow where needed. I'm goign to see if i can squeze in more plasma-weaponary into my squads, so, we'll just wait and see!
