    For the other 1000 points of my 2000 point army, I have been thinking of using 4 Chimeras to carry for squads down the table. Should I used chimeras or not? :wacko:

    Well, 4 is a lots. I would definitely take at least one in a normal guard army to either carry around stormies or an armoured fist squad. If you are playing mechanized than definitely. It would work. I like that idea. But don't get all crazy and get them in cc. Just use them to move around quickly to harass the enemy until they get to the bulk of your army(unless the chimeras are the bulk of your army, that is bad). Don't make the chimeras and squads the bulk because Guard is truly most effective when standing far away and shooting. That is what I got, I hope I helped out!

    Yes, either for their transport ability or their mobile firepower.

    so wait.. you&#39;re going to spend a 1000 points on Chimeras? Armored Fist squads? huh?


    ok i LOVE chimeras, they&#39;re my favorite transport in the game. in fact they&#39;re more of a light tank than a "transport".

    but unless you&#39;re going Mech. i wouldn&#39;t take more than 2.. or perhaps 3...

    and they shouldn&#39;t be running more than 100 points a pop.

    personally i take
    Turret MultiLaser, hull HB, pintle HS, smoke = 100 pts.
    they work great.


    but here&#39;s the main thing about chimeras.

    only take them if you got Russ and/or Demolisher (or any other exposed AV14) in your army.
    chimeras are great for two reasons
    distracting from your AV14 and giving some infantry support.
    yeah they transport, but eh, that&#39;s a distant 3rd place.

    an army list w/out AV14(s), but w/ chimeras.... is not good
    you&#39;re going to loose those chimeras to anti tank fire faster than you can says

    Heck&#33; 1000pts. on chimeras? wow you must really love them. Unfortunately with their big sides of only AV ten it is about as easy to kill them as a sentinel. I suggest get maybe 1 or 2 armoured fists squads. You should spend the rest on some counter attack units, leman russes and demolishers, ratlings and the like. I think they would serve you a lot better.

    With a chimera you put a squad of hardened veterans inside wit three meltaguns and go tank hunting. move across the board and jump out next to an enemy vehicle and using the higher BS of the veterans you can easily destroy the vehicle or cripple a squad of terminators etc. This is what i tend to do. But i never use more than 1 or 2 chimeras in my army unless i&#39;m going mechanized.

    Why not get Hellhounds instead of Chimeras? Usually you only spend 20 more points and you get 12 armor on the sides. Plus the weapons are quite a bit more effective.

    I like to put a command squad with an Office with Power sword and 4 flamers. This is even good for taking our marines, bunkers, etc. They won&#39;t last long after, but they usually will take out more points than they lose.
