    what should i choose

    ok, my current sm army has i librarian named titus. his powers and veil of time and might of heroes. here is the wargear that i will definatley take.

    Psychic hood (included)
    Artificer armour
    Combat shield
    Teminator Honours
    Bike

    here is where the question arises. Should i then take a master-crafted force weapon to give him more punch, a bolt pistol for the extra attack, or a familiar and either one. Keep in mind that he will most likely be part of a five man bike squad, with and attack bike. please help.


    thanks

    You definitely want to give him either a bolt pistol or to swap the Combat Shield for a Storm Shield. Master Crafting is very expensive for what it does, and is probably overkill on a model able to get up to 9 attacks on the charge. A familiar is useful, but remember that because it has a stat-line it has to be represented by a separate model.

    Well said. However, a Storm Shield will count as one weapon, combat sheild doesn't. Correct me if I'm wrong, but +1 attack from bolt pistol is better than 4+ inv. save in combat.

    You could put the familiar in a sidecar using atack bike parts, just skip the heavy weapon and swap somehting in to fill the gap.
    I need the bugger so I can see!

    I meant that if he doesn't give the Librarian a 2nd weapon, he should upgrade the shield. As you say, a pistol and combat shield is preferable for a bike mounted model.

    Boltpistol/combat sheild all the way...

    MC has always been useful for me... I get to re-roll those missed attacks and I have 9 to begin with. I can decimate a squad before really knows what's happened. It makes sure that you will be getting ALOT of attacks hitting and thusly can decimate the entire squad without much issue..Killing 5 out of their 10 marines on the charge would be pretty bad ass....If you veil of time yourself before so you can probably put that up to the number of marines you need dead..Personally I prefer veil over might, as it allows re-rolls and you don't need the MC points.

    agreed..if you have veil of time you're rerolling all your to hit rolls anyway and there's no rerolling rerolls so the master crafting only comes out when you try for a force weapon instakill psychic power use, skipping the veil of time use as you can only use one psychic power/turn..all and all, not worth the 15pts mastercrafting costs in my opinion.

    Ah, okay then. They're great, that extra "pip" of initiative work's wondors. Especially against nids and Eldar. So, go for it and take the Familiar.
