I'm thinking of swaping my infantry platoons in my mech company for a bunch of grenadiers. I was wondering though what would be good special weapons to give them. I don't know If I want to give them Plasmaguns as I already have these with my two veterans.
What's the general opinion on Grenade Launchers? I could disembark and fire off a couple of them?
You know were only going to say metla guns for tank hunters and plasma guns for anything eles. Grenade Launchers work best when your moving as you can still fire them and move at the same time so they work best when given to mobile foot troops who can make use of it not grenadiers in a chimera as the tank with get them in range so you may as well fire off 4 rapid fire plasma gun shots rather then two weak Grenade shots were the Grenade Launchers mobility would be wasted.

Metla....They are a good infintry weapon and instant death Alot too. i think there a good weapon. Although, the grenade is too, I would take 1 of each.
I equip my Grenadiers two ways:
1> Fire Support Squad: 2 x Plasmas with a Chimera, Smoke and maybe a Stubber. No vet Sgt at all. This squad either starts in cover or drives to cover, and is a great mobile fire-base. Most Grenadier Squads should be of this ilk.
2> Anti-tank and all-purpose assault squad: 2 x Melta guns with 10 troops and a Vet-sgt with power weapon. If I have a good CC independant Character or Commissar he goes in this squad. I usually equip the Chimera with Smoke, EA and Twin Heavy Flamers, the "Flaming Chimera O'Doom".

and IMO that are the best ways to field them, except to drop troop them if they are not in a chimeara.
Plasma for me, double the shots, double the kills.
i try to avoid using plasmas because of the overheat casualties they can create. i prefer either to use grenade launchers or meltas

I think he meant to buy Deep Strike for them at xpts per model, as opposed to the free doctrine.
