So I was flipping through my codex and in the Thunderfire Cannon section it said that the Techmarine gunning the cannon was armed with a bolt pistol only.
I was wondering if I could make a Techmarine with a weapon besides the pistol. Of course I would pay for the points from the Techmarine's wargear entry
I think you're stuck with what the entry says. The TFC pretty much is his gun.
You do have a servo-harness though so you will have a plasma pistol and flamer on the Techmarine in addition to the bolt pistol.
Plasma pistol, flamer, bolt pistol, and 2 powerfist attacks, plus he can repair vehicle damage on a 4+ if (when...) the Cannon goes boom. It's a sweet deal, all told
The servo-arm attacks are also made as a bonus to your Techies usual number of attacks, and if I remember right the plasma pistol is twin-linked...
Yeah, servo-harnesses rock
Techmarines are one of the things in the Smurf Codex that I'm honestly surprised you don't see more often; especially considering that, in the last Dex, they had 2 wounds and could take a transport. They can put out some serious hurt in CC, take a small army of heavy weapons troopers and repair vehicles (on a 4+ with the servo-harness ), plus they're not tremendously expensive and the models for them are cool.
