What is the best heavy support? NOT INLUDING LAND RAIDERS
I chose other: Dreadnoughts.
If you call it a Missile launcher, then it'll never hit anything.
100% of people who aren't Karmoon know Saraneth is invincible.
without land raiders in sight, predators, versatility wins out
Vindicator baby. BOOM!
I went dev squad since you can combat squad them and split up there shooting. Have a pair of missile launchers in one squad and two lascannons in the other pop tanks and mow down horde you cant lose.
dude's got a point.
Devvies are really something special and utterly underrated.
10devvies with choice of heavy weapons, upgrades on sarge, choice of deployment options, choice of transports, you cant lose.
Drop-pod a dev squad into an epic place on the board turn 1 - yes they lose a turn of shooting, but decent deployment will keep them alive. turn 2+ and you could have one seriously punishing squad out there. 4 plas cannons and a power fist for anti-MEQ, 4 ML's and combi-flamer for anti-horde, las/MM and meltabombs for anti-vehicle, devs are tailor made and bloody epic, and with 10 marines, will last longer than any vehicle could =)
WOULD 2 dev squads be good
Best is relative.
Whirlwinds are probably the most cost effective and deadly vs hordes.
Vindicators can kill anything. Period. Short range but that barrage thing can spank units in cover.
Devies I agree are all around toughest and versatile but at a cost.
Predator is also versatile but not as resilient as devastators with up to 10 wounds vs 1 pen splodes result.
Personally I love the Vindicator for fear factor. Nobody likes a big nasty plate fired at them that potentially ignores cover and armor, slaying the toughest of units with ease.
... If we didn't have a limit to how many HS choices...
I choose, and seemed to be the only one, the Thunderfire Cannon. I love the old stand-bys, the whirlwind and the predator, but this new-comer is such a terror!
Not only can you kill squads of low T troops, but you can mess up the movement of sloggers/skimmers too!
You just need to put it, somewhere cozy, so your opponent doesn't get any ideas...
Just my two bolter casings.
I don't think there is a "best" heavy it really depends on what you want, anti armour, anti inf. I personally would take a dev squad full of heavy bolters and have each tactical squad have a las cannon, or plasma cannons
