well im putting together my uber super order for forgeworld before the economy collapses
and I have a few asthetic and rules questions on preferences, because although I would LOVE to spend 2k gbp on Dkok I can only spend around 500
earthshaker artillery or Medusa cannon?
vanquisher or vulcan?
mortar or thuddgun?
which are more useful on the tabletop , they are all pretty asthetically pleasing.
DEATH KORPS OF WAR FROM THE PLANET WAR
Sorry, I don't have anything useful to contribute.
me personally (note, i don't own all of those, but have looked at them and have seen them all in action)
Earthshaker over medusa (if you mean the static one, requiring a trojan to use)
Vanquisher over a vulcan (do you mean in a macharius? both are nice, but I am fond of the vanquisher - however that's as i use them in apoc games mostly, and a twin linked vanquisher is sweet. Vulcan does have it's uses though)
Heavy mortar / thuddgun - i'd go with the aesthetic preferance.
yes was talking about macharius, and yes talking about the fixed artillery with crew and trojan loader
im probably gonna go with the generic machirius because the two pits are open
I was thinking about a malcador tank as well for my commissar tank commander; though I may go with vanquisher since I am getting 2 vanquisher DKOK leman russ, so why not make them match.
and another one -- death riders? or another tank?
It really is a hard to say at this point. I am in your shoes right now and kinda want to see what the new dex will bring and how forgeworld updates DKoK.
for me it's the medusa and I say Heavy morters like there is no tomorrow.
It really comes down to the new dex I think. I wish to build up both a army that can use the IA5 DKoK list and IG codex. The Metagame as of now is really droptroop heavy and is not at all what DKoK is. I can see what FW intended by spamming all the templates but I can not see if you can really cut down on the troops side of things. ....sorry went off on a rant....
I was thinking of going with two russes over the Medussa or Earthshaker as they will survive a lot longer and can do things like contest. - just food for thought.
Other choice - I'd do death riders. They look S#t hot. (And i expect R/Riders to be given a good time with the new dex.)
@zmb to you own any DKOK at all yet? this will be my first purchase into full IG, though I have a large army of inquisitorial storm troops for my GK army
and I know DKOK may not be the best choice, but I probably wont have money soon and these troops can defend my home during an apocalypse, I have heard they are the best in the galaxy at holocaust survival; this is why I think its essential to buy a Death korps army before the coming armageddon !
but seriously I think you have the right Idea with the russes, 2 vanquisher alpha russ, with a macharius vanquisher and full command, with engineers and a squad of grenadiers should come out to about 500 usd
i have had some great success with the Medusa Siege gun and Heavy mortars
107th Regiment, 5th Armored Battle Group- 5500ptsFor someone to deal as much damage as you did, the Emperor must surely be at your side. - MaxDv
so the siege medusa is bigger than a regular medusa? or is it the same as any other?
