    Are they useful??? I hear that they are the worst guns in the game. How many of them do you use of them. Are they effective?

    strength 3 ap -, its usefull if you have many guardsmen shoot at the same target, the guards men (unless if you use doctrines) are really just meat walls.
    If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it&#39;s heroic&#33;

    Never under estimate the las-gun. Whenever you have the chance to fire at something, even if you need a 6 to wound take the shot. I took off a hive tyrant’s final wound with a desperate shot with a las gun. I now call them my "Tyrant killers".

    Lasguns are the worst (statwise) guns in the game. Statistically speaking they are useless, in reality however.......Lasguns are the best guns in the game, this is because there are so damn many of them. As long as you believe in them, your lasguns can kill anything. My squads are the fear of terminators everywhere, I tell my opponent that lasguns are "termie killers" before I start shooting, and all his terminators are doomed.
    I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

    If you don&#39;t believe what the other guys are saying i&#39;ll just tell you an example. It happened last week a friend of mine with IG was playing against a Deathwatch army.

    At some time in the game the Librarian terminator ended up within 12" of a squad of three heavy bolters.

    Thats: 9 shots from heavy bolter and 6 shots of lasguns against a 2+ save.

    The Librarian saved all but two shots from one guy&#39;s lasgun.

    The point is: If you shoot with 10, 20 or even 30 lasguns your opponent will eventually fail a save throw.

    My IG friend likes to call them "High Powered Flashlights" because really thats all that they are. However with that damn many of them they really do tend to take down some pretty tough opponents (Avatar, Bloodthirster).

    However I wouldn&#39;t suggest relying on them as your main weapon (ex: Getting rid of the heavy weapons in your squads or you tank support) because an all Guardsmen army just doesn&#39;t cut it. Unless of course your playing a small (point wise) scenerio where you have to Take and Hold table quarters and then there&#39;s just too many of them to kill in time.........

    Of course, we&#39;ll blindly follow your recommendation, even though you show all the typing skills of an inebriated amputee walrus. This is even before I get onto your reasoning, or the lack thereof, of why we shouldnt use them.

    Read the rules, damn quick, before I ban you under rules one,three, nine and eleven, taking into account your other posts on this board.

    Have a lovely day, you spammy little smegger.

    Oh I would never recommend taking only lasguns in a unit, that’s just silly. The guard relies on their high number of special and heavy weapons to deal death. Just never underestimate the lasgun, and don’t expect much, that way when you do kill something with them you can rub it in your opponents face.
