Personally, I like the Muli-Melta but no one ever uses it! I don't even have one!!!
...and you will know my name is the lord, when I strike down my vengence upon thee...
I vote multi-melta's too...
They're short ranged, and thus not always the most useful of weapons, but that double roll on armor penetration just kicks ass... Plus they look cool, and they're the best weapon my sisters can carry
Had I been like my brother, it would have been lascannon; my brother's a powergamer...

i like the assault cannon it makes a great anti personnel weapon
plus i heard it will be heavy 4 instead!
Heavy bolters are my favorite, i like mowing down infantry and light vehicles with them, i usually leave heavier weapons like lascannons on my dreads or LR
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
autocannons r good, can take out all infantry and most light/medium vehicles...
main downside is the 2 shots, need .... more...

I think heavy bolters are the best anti-personnel weapon on this list, for the points. Plus, just about any squad/vehicle can take one, and the Heavy Bolter Marine just looks really cool. Like that dude with a minigun in the movie Predator. I imagine the heavy bolter to be something like that. Just look at that ammo feed!
Purge all the heretics,
Kill the alien scum,
Suffer not the unclean to live,
And have a beer when you're done.
Plasma Cannons beat all. Nothing beats denying saves to a cluster of power armored troops. And with such strength they can instant kill almost anything!
Plus they can easily take out most light battle tanks. (Y) (Y)
The DS sucks because to look at two screens, you would need two eyes!!!
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the missile launcher. As far as tactical flexibility goes, the missile launcher is the best. It goes very well with the standard tactical flexibility of the marines.
As for my personal favorite, I have to say the heavy bolter. A very underestimated weapon that can wreak havoc in large groups. Has anyone ever seen a devastator squad with 4 of these? They can put out the same ammount of firepower at the same strength and better ap than a firewarrior squad, and at a greater range. Not to mention the heavy bolter is cheaper in a tactical squad than any of the special weapons!
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!
Same with me. Nothing is sweeter than seeing a unit of troops mowed down by a couple of Heavy Bolters. Shooting Orks and IG with them is even sweeter, no saves.Originally posted by BloodAngelCaptain@Oct 25 2004, 124
