    IG Plasma gunners

    What do you guys think about giving regular IG (and vets) plasma guns? I am very reluctant about giving these cardboard-wearing guys anything that could make them potentially kill themselves though I have heard several people recommend this very thing. What do you guys think?



    Armies:
    Shields of the Emperor SMs (in the making)
    Next:
    Nurgle IG AC/Grenadiers

    Remember, give people rep if they help you.

    To not give your men Plasma, is like not giving the Queen her Tiera, like not giving WW II Germans their Tigers, Like not giving the WWII Japanese their Zero fighters. Plasma is probably the best for the point weapons we can give out men. Yes our men will die, that what Guardsmen do, die, but with plasma they will kill a lot of more expensive troops.

    Trust me, if you want to win, take many Plasma Rifles.

    i second that. plasma is a gift we would be rude to refuse. even if a guardsman dies how many points is that? 16, rapid firing on a terminator..... priceless. 70 % of my special weapons are plasma

    At the moment I am reconfigering my IG army and I have given every squad a plasma gun and a missle launcher, now I really hope that that combo kills some grey knights .

    I don't have problems with grey knights, but the plasma/missile launcher combo is what I have for all my line squads now, and it works well. In my opinion, it's by far the most effective all-rounder combo.

    The plasma gun, even with overheating is far and away the best special weapon for IG.

    True w/ Plasmaguns you run the risk of frying your man. But it's one of the cases of "the reward outweighs the risk."

    that is to say, the chance to kill a MEQ is worth the chance to loose your guy.


    It is the *best* special weapon to give to your line squads. this is because it fits perfectly into a static fireline.


    ps. plastic IG flamer + SM plasmapistol = cheap plasmagun.

    hmm I'll have to try that sometime. Anyway the only thing I don't like with cadian plasmagunners are the models. I bought sm plasmaguns and placed them on normal guardsmen looks much better than that strange pose and backpack the official GW minature has.

    I did that last night just with a plasmagun not a pistol. It looks great, but would you put the flamer tanks on his back?
