    Heavy Bolter isn't my favorite from a damage perspective but I definitely think its my favorite model.

    Well, from a model's perspactive I think the Steel Legion Missile Launchers are the coolest - I'm in the process of stealing their ML's for my Tallarn army.

    Your poll is very hard to answer, because the weapons all have completely different roles. It's better to think about the weapons options like a toolbox, if you're facing heavy tanks or terminators, lascannons are best. Light tanks or skimmers, autocannons are best. Power armor, missile launchers are best. Light infantry, heavy bolters are best.

    When making a balanced list, I think that the two most all-purpose guns are the Heavy Bolter and the Lascannon. They both fall at either end of the spectrum, and so together they can handle a little bit of everything.

    But I really think that in order to have a toolbox that can handle any job, you'll need to have a few of all the tools. :yes:

    I agree about Lascannon/HB. Using Autocannon/ML just doesn't work as well, not to mention you lose something- if you fire on infantry with an Autocannon you're missing out on transports, and same for ML. With HB, you can pair it with a GL and only hit infantry, or pair a Lascannon with a PG and kill tanks.
    If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.

    The lascannon makes a cool model, but in game terms id have a missile launcher any day. They are just too expensive for what they do and i can just take meltas. But, as said above, there is no one good team for everything each has its own purpose.

    Hey Guys!

    Admittedly, if Grenade Launcher was on the poll, I'd choose that
    But instead, I'd have to go for the Missle Launcher. I love the duel functionality of those kinds of weapons, but again, different weapons for different jobs.... you'll end up taking a mix of most anyways

    I agree with the previously stated points of different weapons for different jobs, but honestly, when I am done filling out on the LC and ML I need, I look to pick up as many HB as I can to fill in points. It takes down most infantry w/o saves, and even the mighty space marines will die by sheer number of saves forced. Its also fun to take them in a firesupport squad and give them sharpshooter, but thats just a side note.

    i agree. after a fixed number of LCs (i dont take ML as i like to have a single role for each weapon) i fill the rest with HBs. these two are the only heavies (except tank cannons) that you would find in my army list. LC is best against tanks, HB is best against infantery. why getting fancy and buying a AC against transport. guard have enough heavies that there is always a spare LC to aim at the those transports.

    for looks, I'd also go with the HB, though mortars look cool too.

    Ill go for the missle Launcher myself as being able to damage tanks and get past a marines power armor is just to good to past up for only 5 points more then a plasma gun and while the frag missiles are not as useful there still there if you feel the need to fire one. Lascannons are nice but stand out to much for my liking and because your opponent (If he is any good) will target them you need to take more then one in order for them to be effective which means you have to spend even more points on them.

    Missile Launchers in a command squad for the win:yes:
