ok, I am town between how to field Sentinels, but I really want to use a few in my Guard/DH army. ok, for the same points cost, I can field one of two setups
Multilaser, add a Heavy Stubber and a Hunter-Killer Missle
Lascannon and a HUnter-Killer Missle
they would be about the same points costs, which would be better. The extra Lascannon on a mobile platform would be nice, but against troops, you cant beat 6 shots from strength 4-6....not to mention the missle....
im leaning toward the Lascannon setup, as I am sorely lacking in anti-tank weapons, but what does everyone think?
Um, I thought you cant put a stubber on a sentinal. Well anyways, I would actually use a auto cannon giving you fire power and rate of fire.
When goblins blow themselves up its stupidity. But when humans blow themselves up its bravery....odd isn't it
Here is another idea dont use sents at all
I like sentinals, I think they are good. You just have to use them as you would land speeders. Spread them out and use them for 1 specific job. Putting add ons like hunter-killer missiles and heavy stubbers is ridiculous...they will not survive.
I agree the stubber is a bad idea, but the missle, I intend them to be a pre-emtive anti-armour strike, to eliminate some of my oponents tank killing power before I move in with transports, so the missle fits my purpose nicely...
and ionscorp, if you cant say anything worth while, dont bother...
Gosh, come come. Why don't you like sentinels "ionscorp"? In what logical reason should you say that to someone who's asking "what's the best way to use them" not "should I use them". Hmmmm...yea!
Now, for the sentinels...What do you want they're role to be? If you don't have enough armour busting, take the LAS; don't have enough mass kills, take the multi-laser. But personally, I always take a hunter killer missile, that unlimited range is too cool. Talk about sniping
One last thing......Go orionlethe! Way to talk to him :lol:
well, I have INDUCTED GUARD in my DH Army, and I dont Deep-strike much, so I got guard for 3 reasons: Troops give me a meat shield, and some ranged firepower....so does the leman russ..and the Sentinels, are to eliminate some/all anti-armor before my transports with my Terminators and Grey Knights close for the kill
you know, sentinals would make a pretty good counter assault unit too. They fight like a dreadnaught (kind of) and are only 80 pts. I would imagine they would slow down bloodletters, especially if you give them weapons with the hardened fighters doctrine.
Ahhh...the possibilities, makes me feel like I'm in a toystore again...well...kind of :w
well you can't give heavy stubbers to sentinels, as someone said before. i prefer to give my sentinels a heavy flamer because it's cheap and it makes the sentinel a counter-assault unit. a very good one at that. especially w/ a 5 strength
