Question: <read title>
See, I'm gonna have some plasma-carryin' Inquisitorial Stormtroopers mounted in a chimera. Chimera with multi-laser, heavy bolter, smoke and extra armor. I just bought my first ever chimera. And I am asking you, what you think, wether or not a pintle-mounted StormBolter is worth it on my Chimera
I ain't glueing it until I know for sure, though Im seriously considering getting a bunch of extra turrets from somewhere and get one of each for this chimera, so I can swap to switch strategies.
P.S. I'll be running at least 2 chimeras minimum, and at higher points also a Leman Russ. So It's not gonna be the only thing the enemy AT can shoot at.
A Tau Ethereal was thought to have been killed today by a Bloodthirster. However, many Tau were seen fleeing the scene and are considered suspects.
I don't think that it is; you pay space marine points for it, but you end up with Guard BS. It just doesn't add up. As well as your Chimera will likely be shooting at transports and light vehicles which your storm bolter will likely not do very much against. I would rather have one more storm trooper (more wounds is almost always better in DH) than the two extra low bs shots.
Its already going to be a target so most likely not. The extra shots arnt worth the points were you could use them for something like a com upgrade.

2st game: vs Chaos result: Win :p
it's only useful if, Chimera somehow loses all its weapons in one turn, instead of being immobilised its just got no weapons because of the SB
but thats it, or if you're shooting at some elite troops
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
I'm not a fan of it. One 10pt BS3 gun that you only shoot when you haven't moved 12"?

I'm usually not in favor of pintle-mounted weapons on chimera. the only one I consider is Heavy Stubber, and that 's only because it has some range. I usually don't feel the need to drop the points into it. Especially at BS3.
I've gotten the heavy stubber only when I was using the chimera as a medium tank. I think there are much better investments for the points. Another Stormtrooper is a good idea. extra armor and smoke, improved comms, etc.
