    Sergeants?

    Was wondering what you all normally gave your normal infantry squad sergeants? LP+CCW? Lasgun? Shotgun?

    I'm debating between LP+CCW and Lasgun. It would seem that having a lasgun would add more firepower to the squad, whereas the squad is going to get chewed up in melee with or without the extra bonus.

    well, for some reason I always give them pistol+cc weapon.

    But its no big deal either way.

    In assault with 9 guard + 1 sarge w/pistol/cc

    Charging : 22 attacks
    Being charged : 11

    In assault with 9 guard +1 sarge with lasgun

    Charging = 20 attacks
    Being charged : 10

    Shooting with 9 guard + sarge w/pistol
    12" : 19 shots
    24" : 9 shots

    Shooting with 9 guard + sarge with lasgun
    12" : 20 shots
    24" : 10 shots

    So its not a big loss either way. It all boils down to this

    Suicide assault or suicide gunlines

    I find that we loose after 1 turn in assault against almost anything. Thus I like to spend more time shooting, thus I need to remodel my sarges... damnit

    Cheers

    Thanks! That's sort've what I was thinking, but just starting (the sarge is actually the fifth model I'll have put together, wanted to wait til I heard one way or the other before I added his arms.) so I wasn't sure on the math of it.

    I actually use vet sarges so my squads can operate wherever I want them to and I just use a JO with a banner for re-rolls. Since I shoot with my squads and I kind of feel bad about giving a VETERAN guardsman a mere lasgun, I give him a bolter. It looks kinda cool, and boosts my firepower just a bit.

    Completely forgot that I could make him a vet. Oh well, I'll just remodel this one and wait til I get some bolter bits for the others. I know I was messing around on Army Builder and vet sarges with bolters seemed like a good deal.

    I'd recommend against upgrading your Sergeants to Veteran Sergeants, to be perfectly honest. As long as you can maintain the leadership bubbles of your Junior Officers, then the upgrade really won't be worth the cost.

    Personally, I'd just keep the Sergeant bog standard with a Lasgun, though really (as weak as the weapons are, and as average as the model's stats are) it doesn't matter so much as to make a significant difference. In the end, which one looks cooler is probably your best bet!

    I come from years of playing Magic: The Gathering at tournament level, so while I don't consider myself strictly a power gamer, I want to take the thing that's generally going to be better I guess. I certainly love fluff and role playing as well, and am working on developing a background for my army, that'll evolve every battle I fight etc.

    Thanks for the advice and information though everyone, really appreciate it!!

    Suprisingly enough, I occasionally will make a vet-sarge who's rambling into combat carrying a storm-bolter. Or even a plasma pistol, just that little suprise throws off most opponents who aren't expecting it on average.

    Not only that, yay for getting to re-roll storm bolters thanks to sharpshooters. Especially as vet sarge's don't class as BS 4.
