Just a quick question.
What weapon options does an assault squad sergeant come with?
Also does the box set come with enought bits to make the sergeant into a normal assault marine?
Yes, it does.
The options that are available in the box set, as I remember, are;
-Power Sword (Why both? I don't know. Probably just for looks)
-Storm Shield (Or Combat Shield, the Codex Entry says he can use either)
Thanks a lot.
the assault marines box is one of the best for bits in my opinion as well as a good selection of special weapons you get jump packs and standard backpack. I have 2 full squads of jump pack less assault marines which get a lot of use (as troops in rhinos if playing blood angles or as vanguard in a rhino if playing vanilla) which freed up lots of jump packs for conversions
blood angels 5000 pts
imperial guard 500 pts
orks 1000 pts
you could use nonstandard weapons you having laying around too. I used a power scythe and a power shovel for my assault marine sergeant.
Power shovel? I want to see that.
I'll see if i can find a decent digicam since mine sux at picturing minis.
Which of the possible options do you think is the best to equip him with?
The best would probably be a powerfist. Also, a plasma pistol might do but I hesitate to give him a weapon that could kill him before getting to use the expensive powerfist
The only constant in the universe is change, adapt or die.
Mine has a powerfist too.
You might want to invest in a jump pack chaplain too, so that you have two heavy hitting members in your unit, but more importantly the chaplain lets you rereoll ALL attacks made during an assault, making the assault marines excellent shock attack units, so you can send then ahead, charge in and drastically cut down your enemies elites + hard targets or mow down a troop squad.
Great for guarding objectives and heavy support units if needed too.
