Hey guys, just looking for some new ways to fight with a grandmaster or brother-captain.
not in combat... lol
If you're from London, does "Liberal democrats" have any meaning?
Anyway, It occurs to me the GM does not need much adornment. Maybe bionics, just cuz if you wouldn't put bionics on him, who would you put him on? Maybe a psychic hood, to affect eldar powers that affect themselves.
You use GMs in combat. That's it. I give mine Bionics, IotJ, MCNFW, Retinue of 5 termies (1 Incinerator, 1TH&SS)
A man's at odds to know his mind, for his mind is aught he has to know it with.
Cheers to that, same exact loadout as I tend to use.Bionics, IotJ, MCNFW, Retinue of 5 termies (1 Incinerator, 1TH&SS)
You can give the GM a power fist(or chainfist, lightning claws), right? That accounts as an additional ccw, right? (cuz you can't use a normal ccw, no "*") Now as I understand it, you have to choose to use either the rules for the NFW or the powerfist each attack, but the key here is the extra attack, plus the ability to use an altenatively also beneficial rule set. We're talking 6 attacks on the charge! With either a Str6 force weapon or a Str 8 powerfist!
So....Here's what I'm thinking, buy the guy scourging (cuz he's loosing his stormbolter), bionics (new SM version), a chainfist (cuz it's only 5 pts more than a powerfist, and you might wanna pop a tank), and a mastercrafted NFW. Boo-yah, 6 attacks of kill absolutly anything.
i go with megalo and justi's setup. right now i only got 4 termies w/ 1 inciner, but i have to customize the hammer and shield accordingly to get the 5th..
The points that you use for the chainfist/powerfist could be used to get another whole GK or a decent "down payment" on another terminator in his retinue -- both of which seem much better than just adding another attack to the GM. I don't see striking at I1 being that advantageous that often, either, despite being S8, since he can be singled out in close combat.
i can't really ever suggest having the GM w/ a fist. force weapon and i5 is... very hard to let go of. on a single termy, i can see it, but you mind as well give him a hammer. smacks multi wounders to I1 for next assault phase, and str 8 PW is pretty good.
But you don't have to use the power fist unless you want to, right? You can use the Mastercrafted NFW for all six attacks, at the I5 and Str 6, right?
I just want to make sure you can do this. It seems worth it to me to pay even 30 pts for an extra attack on a GM. Now, Chainfist seems a good choice for this, as it gives you a lot of options, but go with a daemonhammer, whatever.
