I play EC (1000 pts at the moment) and im trying to take the best of my havoc squad cause i have some problems dealing with eavy armour, i have a defiler (batle canon, autocanon & eavy flamer) and my havocs squad (with 6 models) has 4 blastmasters, i was thinking if its worth to change one or two blastmaster for LCs? or even 4 autocanon with tank hunter ability (sonic weaponry cant have it!), it would give me an extra punch against eavy armoured veicules and units like terminators, and what abouty the sise of the squad? is 6 a good number or 5 do the job? cause i play only 1000pts every point counts!

are you sure about this? im pretty certain you can. that being said a havoc squad with autocannons and tank hunters brings tears to the eye. i favour two autocannons and two missile launchers complete with tank hunters. straight autocannons would prob be more effective but some variety never hurt anyone and the higher strength makes me feel slightly safer when shooting at landraiders et al. lascannons imo are too many points in a havoc squad. save them for a predator instead.or even 4 autocanon with tank hunter ability (sonic weaponry cant have it!)
as for the size of the squad remember that if nyou have 5, your opponant only has to kill one meatshield before getting to the juicy heavy weapons. six is the bare minimum i would take for havocs. as for units like termies go with the tried and tested. termies do not like plasma guns while demonettes can work wonders.

Everyone makes mistakes. mine was to leave her head in the fridge.
If you have the points use Missle LAunches cause if you face a swarm then their frag fire option is very handing plus S9 is good but I personally use the autocannopns, It's always a matter of preference.
in this case i will keep the 4 blastmasters and give them tank hunters!! s8 blast vs swarms or s9 vs tanks is way to good for just one weapon!!Originally Posted by Andusciassus

You also have very good range. With this type of Firepower I'd take 2 squads for my Heavy Support just for the fact they have lascannon power with good blast templates. Wh ywould you need tanks with Lascannons?
