What weapon would you give Bjorn? Feel free to post your reason(s) below.
Can he have a MM and a Drop Pod? There's is the only Codex I don't own right now so I can't remember. If he can I'd do that. If not, I'd probably leave him home because he's to expensive but the plasma cannon seems fine if you make me choose.
Unfortunately he can obtain neither a multi-melta or a drop pod, just the options i listed above . However, he is a complete beast, with BS 6 to boot.
Yeah Plasma Cannon or Lascannon than. He's not really a beast because of his cost and armor, 13 is a bit better but he's still way to easy to pop for the points. More than a Land Raider if I remember but no AV14 (just an Invuln) no transport capacity, can't go 12" unless he runs and less guns. I3 (if I remember) in CC and....3 attacks? Bleh. They made him way to many points, although the special rule is kind of cool, not for KP games though. ><
Assault Cannon. Anything else is wasting his awesomely high BS, plus Assault Cannon can and will hurt everything and anything in the game from Grots to Land Raiders. Now THAT is what I call versatility.
Soooo expensive .....
If I ever play him, it would be with Assault Cannon.
Lascannon; BS6, and he can sit in a safe place using it so he's not at risk of failing the game by becoming an objective. The AssCannon would benefit a lot more from the BS6 but he has to put himself in harm's way to use it, and Plasma Cannons are meh.
if i ever ran him, id equip him with the plasma cannon. i use a lot of plasma in my games so the BS 6 is awesome. and its free, so that cool. i also cant imagine people in my area primaring him because i run scarier things, like 15 BCs + Wolf Priest in a LR. thats my .02 isk
can take care of infantry and tanks
There's no point giving a BS6 unit a twin-linked weapon. The only benefit of BS6 is that it allows a re-roll which is superseded by the twin-linked re-roll.
Furthermore, plasma cannons are blast weapons and hit automatically, so the BS is not important except for reducing scatter distance. In which case, Bjorn has all of 2'' over a regular Space Marine. Not impressive.
I'd go with the assault cannon.
