Welcome to Librarium Online!
A few simple questions.. has anyone used them with success? What kind of vehicles most benefit from the upgrade? Any tactics you can suggest for using them effectively?
I was thinking of using them to add a fire support role to a rhino transport (the rhino in question is transporting medium ranged troops, so rhino rushing isn't really a priority.) But it seems very expensive for that. I was just wondering if there had been any success stories.
I havn't actually used them yet (seem rather expensive) but I would stick them on either a predator with heavy bolters for some additional swarm killing power. Rhinos will probably moving max. distance, and the havoc launcher won't provide that much support per se. Theoretically, an excellent use might be to stick these things on CC dreadnoughts, thus giving you a 48" range in case you decide to shoot on your fire frenzy roll.
I think they could come in handy, considering you can switch between krak and frag missles... I know its SM counterpart does good. It has taken out quite a few of my troops. So to sum up, no I havnt used the Havok launcher, however i have seen something similar used, and it worked well... not sure if its worth the points... just my 2 cents
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
This particular rhino only needs to transport some dudes within 24". After that, they bail out and the rhino is left sitting doing nothing.
Oh, for a chaos razorback.
The other alternative, I suppose, is to give it a warp amp and let it run around tank shocking people.
And sorry, Centum, no krak missiles for a havoc launcher. It's frag or nothing.
i use a havac lancher on my rhino but mainly because thats how i built it. It never realy does anything the 3 blasts dont work to well because they're only strength 4 like a bolter, but if you are fighting something thats weak like orcs then maybe. But your idea of making it be a tank shocker sounds preatty good if i didnt do khorne i woulld try that out. By the way if it is going to tank shock dedicate it to khorne and give it blasphomous rune.
That's 4 templates a turn, 8 if it goes fire frenzy.
Sure...some aren't really that powerful, but if you shot them at a gaunt brood..
That is 3 templates and 6 iff you fire frenzy. Can u mount a Havoc on a Dread because u can't mount a hunter killer on a marine Dread.
Havok launcher = 2 missiles
Plasma cannon =1 Template
Missile launcher =1 template
And yes, you can. Or I've been getting away with murder.
i would suggest using them on Rhinos actualy, (this is not greyknight,but a friend of his)
i play a Khorne army, will typicaly t rhinos, they atre price for rhinos, but i oufit them with an extra combi-bolter and a havoc. thismake you have 85pt rhinos, but not many people see a rhino n think, O NO! THATS GONNA KILL ME! then shoot it with a las cannon... just not a very commmon thing to happen.
so the rhinos typicaly will pay for themselves, if your not playing a power armour team... not many of those n e more, but whatever.
i still have payed for themelves agains blood angels and white scars befor though.
also, there is the random time when people do shot at them with a las cannon or something, in which case, you just say, HA YOU WASTED A LAS CANNON SHOT ON A RHINO! which will make them feel pretty dumb when they think about it...
Patrick, possing as grey knite for the day... HA!
