    Which Heavy Support combo is better in a tourney..?

    Hi all,

    Helping my friend out to sort out his Dark angels to being a bit more competitive as he always looses out. His new list is pretty much anti-troop assault oriented with a full squad of assault marines with an interrogator chaplain leading them and a teleporting assault termie squad.

    For troops he has two tac squads split into four combat squads, two of them got lascannons.

    Now for HS, it is a toss up between either 10 devastators with 4 plasma cannons, and a predator annihilator for anti-tank, or 10 devastators with 4 missile launchers and a vindicator for anti-personell and fear factor.

    Which is better in his army do you think?

    He has lots of pretty much every model in the army list. I guess he has about 10000pts or so of DA, and a few army boxes unassembled lying around, so feel free to suggest almost anything, but mostly regarding the HS..

    THanks

    Please correct me if im wrong..if his assault termies deep-strike, lets say on turn two...b4 he's had a chance to dwindle his oppnents army..their just gunna get shredded sitting out in the open cause they cant move....i've seen it happen b4...2+ saves dont mean the world.


    Just my 2 cents.

    My personal list right now runs a Vindicator and a Predator Destructor w/ LC sponsons. I would have to say the plasma cannon/pred is the best choice, as the vindi is very very very unreliable (yet I still use it in all my lists...). Also, he may want to try 4 Lascannon (expensive, I know) Dev Sqauds, or 2 Predators.

    So far I've found that a pair of Predator Destructors with heavy bolter sponsons are your best bet for Heavy Support when it comes to a Dark Angels army. In my opinion, anti tank weapons should be fielded only on Land Speeders, Terminators or Tactical/Devastator Squads. Razorbacks with twin linked lascannons would probably do better.

    So, here's how I'd ensure that your friend gets some anti tank firepower in his army.

    2 10 man Tactical Squads with Fist, plasma and lascannon, plus a Razorback with twin linked lascannon.

    1 10 man Devastator Squad with 2 missile launchers and 2 lascannons

    2 Land Speeders with multi meltas

    Those options should keep your shooting fairly mobile while still having the punch needed to bring down heavy vehicles.

    Good luck.

    DA_THE_ROCK : Well it sort of depends where you deep strike you know. You don´t have to deep strike in the middle of the board or at the rear. Along an edge where the opponents is weak, and behind cover is a sneaky way of doing it. It´s always a gamble though.

    Katie : I too prefer antitank on personell and vice versa. However razorbacks is about the only thing he doesn´t have, so that´s out. 10 devastators with lascannon/ML and two predator destructors might be a good idea though!
