I was wondering with the sharpshooters doctrine (+10 points/unit) if it were to be applied to 2x Lascannon team (4 men + 2 lascannons) and an Autocannon team (2 men +autocannon) how much the cost would be. Would it be 30 points or some other number.
Any Replies ASAP will be appreciated (I have an upcoming tournament which I need to prepare for)
ok, once more unto the breach...
now if i'm reading you clearly, you have 2 lascannon heavy weapon crews, and an autocannon heavy weapon crew. as to what squads they belong to i'm not sure, if it's three separate squads than 30, if the two lascannons are part of an anti-tank support squad and the autocannon is part of a fire support squad, than 20.
but i'm guessing if that were the case, you would have simple said the rest of the heavy weapons, so maybe you have 2 anti-tank squads with lascannons and a fire support squad of autocannons, then it'd be 30... or maybe you have one of each of those in 3 different infantry squads, which would be 30 too...
what i'm trying to get at i guess would be, that sharpshooters applies to an entire squad and any guardsmen or heavy weapons crew in there, which could be multiple if one of those support squads, ithink i'm being repetitive now. anyways, it oesn't just apply to each individual heavy weapon crew that you want to give it to, i know this may be a legitimate problem, but i do feel that the codex explains these things well enough.
that all said, my advise when it comes to sharpshooters, is if you're going to use it, then use it only on support squads where those re-rolls can come in handy. it's not so much needed on infantry squads as the extra dice won't equate for much on the lasgun kills.
Thanks a lot for your help and I apologize for any of the breaches I have made
As $Certemplar wrote, it is not applied to teams, but squads. A heavy weapon squad consists of 3 teams. 10 points for rerolling 1's is a good investment for a heavy weapon squad.
problem is what you are describing (1xlas cannon teams, 1xAc team) does nto fit any single squad
Everything you have been told is a lie!
yes, you can give sharpshooter to your support teams that are attached to your HQ. Also can give the ability to your command squads and all troop sqads. The only people you cant give it too is IG models with 4+ BS.
BTW, being I roll a hell o alot of 1's, i ALWAYS include the SS skill to ALL my units. one time I rolled 5 1's out of 18 dice for a squad shooting into a squad of terrmies...
I rerolled the 5 dice to roll 3 hits! The total of hits out of 18 dice was an astonishing 12!!! The hits were less, about 6 or 7, but still a good amount. 3 terrmies fell in that alone! Granted my luck was better than most on that particular phase, but 3 more hits froom 5 original misses is awesome! Sometimes I forget I DONT get that skill with my Marnies or Storm troops and wish I did! lol. Great Skill to have, but pricy!
