ive just got my box set of heavy weapons and out of the five which one would u guys use and y? im looking for a space marine or cron ( damn wwb rule) <_< killer but not killing me on the points , im thinkin autocannos r gonna do trick . wats ur fav heavy weapon :blink:
Yeah Autocannons are good against Space Marines... Lasannons are good if you wanna rip open tanks and Dreadnoughts...
lascannons look like they are good for high profile targets, i would include one

I wouldn't use autocannons against Sm because even though you will wound them on a 2+, they still get their 3+ armor save. I'd say take 3 lascannons and target his HQ..instant kill and force him to either spend the points for an (I) save or suffer instant kill.
Heavy bolters, cause they put out more fire for fewer points

Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
Given the IG BS I would go with the heavy bolters, the sheer attrition of fire will make more difference then 3 lascannon. Although I like the idea of training the lascannon on the HQ squad and such.

Autocannon is pretty sweet for the 15 points. Takes out rhinos and wounds SM on 2s. But you still need heavy bolters for swarms and lascannons for heavy armor. So you will end up taking serval of each.

i guess ill take all three then, auto cannons, lascannons and heavy bolters. they all use the same tripod and guys to man them, so i just wont glue the weapon on and just keep switching them. howbout missle launchers and mortar. missle launchers seem ok i wonder y noone mentions them, but i heard mortars suck.
Mortars are great if you know how to use em. They don't need a LOS, so you can keep out of enemy los, and they can pin troops, so aim at the basic infantry
Mortars are a wildcard I find. In one game they killed 2 'stellers. In my last game however they killed about 4 marines, 2 scouts ( pinning them ), a 'steeler and a biovore ( it only had one wound left ). I have to say after my last game im not as down on mortars as I was, however don't depend on them.
I take ML's in my command squads. I think its a great weapon because it offers anti-horde or ant-tank, anti-character and its range 48".
Personally I would go for the lascannon squad, give 'em sharpshooter and unleash hell.
