well heres my idea is to mount a rhino with a havoc luancher and have a normal squade with a auto cannon guy with tank hunter so u can thow out like 2 krak missles per trun. anouther guy with a plasma gun. so u can bacily run around the board blasting every thing with this cheep sotra predator
Good thinking. Actually you would have two 'frag' missile (not krak) and the autocannon. The problem with this configuration is the points:
5 marines (minimum squad) w/ tankhunter & 1x autocannon + rhino w/ havoc launcher= 170 points.
For this amount you can almost purchas a defiler w/ indirect fire. Or, for troops you could almost purchase a number of very good marine options.
Additionally, the rhino has particularily bad staying power, that is, it has very low armor values and is therefore easily destroyed.
Not to mention the need for the Rino not to move in order for the AC-guy to be able to shoot.
I would really like to like the Havoc Launcher, but it would take some mending I guess. Lower points cost or indirect fire or something.
EDIT:Boyd, I think he reffered to the Autocannon + Tankhunter as 2 Krak-missiles.
I don't think this will work in most cases.Originally Posted by Ghost bear
As soon as you move the auto cannon won't be able to shoot. And the armor on the Rhino is rather weak, too. You can try hugging terrain with it, but that will limit your fire arcs. As soon as you pop smoke (should you choose the upgrade) you cannot shoot out of the top hatch either.
By all means try it a couple of times, and let us know how you get on. But at least "on paper" I would think it is not a very effective combo (points-wise).
Shut up and play.
For what they are, Rhinos are incredible expensive, and 9/10 players prefer more marines.. or whiskers or something.
Also Ghost bear, would it really hurt to try and use a spellchecker? I wasn't aware 'u' was a word.
dose the fourm have a on board spellchecker??
For better or worse though, they are forum rules and we have to abide by them, and the hard working mods have to enforce the rules.
I use the google bar which has a form spellchecker in. It's quick easy and convenient
Although, amusingly, 'google' doesn't appear in their own dictionary.
Anyway, more talk about rhinos and drive by shootings and cheese and hoes or whatever it is that's going down now.
see i was always under the impression that its if the heavy weapons guy moves under his own power he cant shoot, but when hes in the rhino his feet are still planted thats was i thought this would be a good idea..
and sorry about the spelling i failed english twice
tobad they dont have a thing were i can just talk in to a mic and it will type for me
Ghostbear - if you aren't a native english speaker then I'm even more sorry for coming down on you (man, I'm a real Tyrant aren't I?), but look on the bright side - free English lessons
Rabbit, you can get really beardy with the rhino IF, you travel 11.9 inches, dismount 2" (placing your special weapon boyos in the front line) and then rapid fire! That's like 25.9 shooting range or something.
Isn't that great?
I'm so impressed i'm going to get some fish and chips.
