    I was playing against cursed founding last week when i saw an interesting tactic. My opponent drove his 2 rhinos up, deployed his SM, legged it and then left his rhinos side armour facing me. This provided him with a a mobile shield, which provided him with cover over a lage gap & blocked my libe of site. Anyway i destroyed one of the rhinos with an autocannon and the other with a plasma pistol, but i was wondering could u use this tatic with guard.??

    Chimera cost almost as much as a rhino doubled so are more expensive. None of the tanks in IG are really expendable as they cost so much even the normal troop carriers.

    So wld u use ths tatic? I have a few times bt i always lose a vehicle when i've tried this when it cld have been used better else where.

    You can only really use this tactic with Space marines as their Rhinos have side exit hatches.

    However, what you could do is ride 2 Chimeras up next to each other, deploy the squads behind them and pop some smoke launchers. Your opponent will find this difficult to deal with.
    unless he gets some squads around the side of it...

    I believe I've mentioned this before here, try taking the cameleline doctrine and doing the same thing. You will be able to move into the wreck and get a 3+ cover save.

    Also fun is tossing demo charges out the tops of Chimeras, if you roll well you can wipe out an entire squad of SM and they never expect it.. until they've played you twice.

    Thats a pretty kool idea.... What u could do in make ur chimera's bulkier, chekc out the extra armour in black gabbo, this will creat a nice wall. I would only do this with 1 chimera though... park it by some other cover, even a forest, create a nice little "sweet spot" if u will use the other chimera, demo charges and go kick some Xenos or marine (hopefully traitors ) ass.

    Haha... may the tank shock god be with u....

    wow that was sorta hertical eh???

    All marines are by definition traitors as they are heavy users of the technology worshipped by the heretics of Mars.

    Yeah, well I didn't see any stories about Guardsmen going head to head with the Arch-traitor Horus during the Heresy.

    Not to knock on the IG, their service to the Emperor is admirable.

    Just don't forget who comes to the rescue of the Guard when the going gets tough.

    actually there were guardsmen legions during the crusade and some did fight against horus. also some fought against other traitor guardsmen legions.

    and instead of using them as cover its probably better to use chimeras as an independant vehicle. rather than put an armoured fist squad in it just give it to a command squad and deploy the command squad out side it and then just use tha chimera to take out weaker units.

    Been very very long since I play 40k and post here.
    The chimera is a wonderful addition to the IG army. It is shooty and moble two thigns every IG army should be. What I did was that I would find a spot ot deploy the chimera and use it as a base for the squad inside. If at the start im not in that spot then thats where hte chimera mvoes and shoots into position. The chimera is wonderful holding down objectives. Hope it helps

    I put a heavy stubber and extra armour on mine and send it after bikes, devastaors and stuff like that.

    The sheer number of shots the chimera can put out freaks out my enemies and often scores several kills.

    Just use them for getting squads to the objective and sheltering rough riders in the first turn. Smoke launchers make them pretty survivable so by the second turn your drive by squad should be popping out to cause rapid fire mayhem while the rough riders should have manouvered around them and be in charging range. Or it might be just an extra pieceof cover by then but everything is expendable in the guard.
    HALO 2 - Sure those first few games where you wipe out the opposition with the rocket launcher, overshield and camoflage are fun but after a while you start looking for something more. Next it has to be death by plasma sword or sticky bomb, till pretty soon only clobbering your opponent with the butt of your rifle will do. The more difficult something is to do, the more fun it is when you pull it off. For IG players the word for this is Mobility
