Against a Necron army consisting of 24 warriors, 2 lords, monolith, destroyers and swarms, what is the better gunship to use, a Valkyrie with hellstrike rockets, or a vendetta with lascannons?
I played a game yesterday with the vendetta and did quite well against them, however would a valkyrie be better and it free up around 30 points which could be distributed elsewhere.
Just looking at the codex, you can either have 3 twin-linked S9 shots at ap2 which will not allow armour saves on the Vendetta, or you can have or 9 shots plus a missile a turn from a Valkyrie at S6/5/8 also not allowng armour saves.
Any comments would be good....
Remember that hellstrikes are Ordnance 1 weapons so you cannot fire anything else on the turn you use them. They are a complete waste of space.
Get vendettas preferably with the heavy bolter door gunners. They are great against necron warriors or destroyers and can have a good go at the monolith or C'tan. If you can keep the range open from the warriors you can aviod being glanced on a 6 by their weapons. Just concentrate fire on the destroyers to get them all laying down at the end of your turn.
