I was thinking about taking scout bikers, but I couldn't figure out why they would have both shotguns and the bike's twin-linked bolters. It seems redundant.
Oh sure, it might be a little redundant... if you're a lasgun packing Imperial Guardsmen, but they hardly live long enough to appreciate the finer points of overkill.
It's not like they can fire both, and they already have relentless.
B/C when GW saw Terminator 2 they thought it was pretty badass when Arnie did it on the motorcycle so they made their version
I lol'ed. Thanks for the input guys/gals, I appreciate it!
Choice is always a nice thing. There might be a situation where one gun is more useful than the other.
Not realy, twin bolter beats shotgun in every situation. Better max range reroll to hit better ap, and since the are relentless the can still assault after firing the bolter
yeah i don't get it either but is cool probably just an imposing status more then anything imagine being a gaurdsmen and watching a 7-8ft man on bike that wieghs more then the family car hurtling at you bolters blazing as he flys past point blanks your mate in the chest.
kind of like the heavy knights what the steed doesn't kill his sword would shotgun/sword see where i'm going
I assume it's because some of the old scout biker models had shotguns (dunno about the new ones) and dunno if it made sense in the old codex..
I think not, shotguns where even lousier in 4:th ed only S3 back then
