Can anyone speculate as to why GW didn't make Hellguns Assault AP whatever?
Just curious what people think.
I always hoped they'd make Hellguns assault weapons as to fit in a bit more with the role of a Stormtrooper.
Stormtrooper = quick fire and assault. no?
Thanks in advance for the discussion
That's more what the Rough Riders and Ogryn do. Stormtroopers are simply better trained and better equipped Guardsmen according to fluff. That being said, what GW is reportedly doing to hellguns is kind of weird. A MEQ-killing flashlight? I just can't wrap my brain around that.Stormtrooper = quick fire and assault. no?

Stormtroopers may be "storming", but that doesn't mean "assaulting".
It simply means they like to run up next (or deepstrike next) to an enemy and shoot them up.
But yes, in those rare situations where you do want to assault, they have hotshot pistols.
