lol... I was thinking... Wouldn't it be cool to charge all of your guardsmen... That's like 180 guys charging.. With artillery banging away at the enemy...
yeh, thats war, get over it...
ive seen it done and it was done effectively. a very big battle though. 5 full platoons, so 250 guardsmen in squads and 5 liuetenant squads, a total of 275 men. the covering fire was from 3 basilisks.
the men charged and destroyed 30 chaos terminators, a bloodthirter, deamon prince, and 60 chaos.
not that bad.
lol. When you have 275 men.. That tends to happen...
yeah but you usually find taht nothing stands to the fire of 275 men either so when you rapid fire at 6" 550 str 3 shots not bad.
then on the charge (using old rules from rulebook not trail assault) 2 attacks each so 550 attacks and an extra 5 attacks for liuetenants
so 275 shots + 555 attacks = total of 830. enough to kill any army.
*Grin* I'm considering doing Daemonhunter/IG *Grin* The ordanance would REALLY help Daemonhunters.. Also it would give them some nice FAST ATTACK choices
yu cant rapid fire then assault.
<insert witty remark here>
you can in the old rules cant you. im sure you can
So you could still have 275 shots even in the new rules... lol either way 275 shots and 275 guys charing=dead enemy (All while your tanks are beating the enemy lines to a pulp
yeah 3 basislisks do kill alot of enemies as well
