Hey umm i was thinking of converting a vet squad are they worth throwing shotguns to them all and having a few plasma guns and a autocannon/missile launcher?
you may rapid fire lasguns after moving, so who needs shotguns? we wont assault anyway.
I agree. Shotguns are worthless on your guard infantry units since you wont be assaulting (hopefully). Stick with the lasguns for the range and rapid fire.
Catachan Vets (devils) are a different story. Give them an officer with powerfist, give the Sgt an honorifica and power weapon or powerfist...3 Melta-guns(or flamers or nade launchers at BS 4!!)...just makes your mouth water. Give the rest of them shotguns and you are good to go. Normal guard, no way. Only reason I'd give it to the Devils is they can ambush. Besides, If you were going to take a Heavy weapon, why would you give em shotguns?
How many guardsmen does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
None, their lasguns work fine.
ive made up some vet squads and from what ive heard here i dont think that you'll like them
2 vets with melta-guns
1 vet with flamer
2 vets with lasguns -1 with vox-caster
2 vets with shotguns
2 vets with CC weapon +las pistol
vet sergant with Macharian cross, power weapon, bionics, bolt pistol, melta bombs.
all with frag and krak grenades.
thats one of mine -ive got 3 diffrent squads just wonderin if you would think there anygood.
Is the flamer and cc weapons for if the enemy troops get to close to you? Because if im thinking what your thinking gotta keep yourself safe from troops while hunting tanks too
lol, yes thats exactly right, i figured if im gonna go tank hunting, then i want something to keep other squads bay, the flamer especially for if im going bug hunting on MC's and dont want all the guants swamping me.
yes, but, frag&krak? you will never charge first and melta guns+bombs will do the job for tanks .
i prepare for every eventuality with my vetrans, its wat makes me able to utilise them very well-not so much using the wargear but knowing you HAVE the wargear allows a certain amount of freedom that i would not normally use with other squads.
