After knocking the Heavy Bolters off of my Vendettas, all of my usual lists have a deficit of like 30-40 points that I can't think of anything else to spend on. Is it worth it to give my Chimelta teams an Autocannon or Lascannon or something.
Just out of curiosity, why would you drop the heavy bolters from the Vendettas?
To answer your question, it doesn't really hurt to give your chimelta teams autocannons (though they'll rarely fire it). You're probably much better off leaving them on your vendettas (who WILL get the chance to fire it)
You did what? Mate you want to leave those on. When firing at targets such as terminators or any other infantry unit (only after you have pulverized your opponents armor) those heavy bolters will come in handy. 6 additional shots at a good AP and Strength do alot of damage, a good example of this is when my vendettas took on a Tau army in a friendly game last saturday and helped wipe out a crisis suit squad. Also when playing horde lists you will be thankful you left them on and you get two heavy bolters for 10 pts which is the same amount you would get 1 in a infantry squad. Leave them on and keep the list as is it was with the door gunners.
I did'nt actually glue the gunners on at all, i just glued the HBs on the swivel mounts and if I need to use them I just push them out the side doors so they are facing forward. I turned the two gunners into some badass looking Grenadiers. I have to agree though, the heavy bolters are great, especially for the price. Hell, the whole Vendetta is AMAZING for its price.You did what? Mate you want to leave those on.
Yeah keep the HBs on. Even if you end up firing at vehicles all game:
1) it`s only 10 points, what have 2 guardsmen ever done? (with regularity)
2) They can help v. some vehicles, think about it they can penetrate AV10. Compared to the TL lascannons this may not sound like much but often AV10 vehicles come in squadrons, ca you really count on 3 TL lascannons to kill 3 vehicles? Even if there's only one light vehicle lascannons still have a 1/3 chance of killing it with a penatrating hit, you should get about 2 penatrating hits...
