Welcome to Librarium Online!
I used to have lots of lootaz 4 groups of 4
i was just wondering if you could still use the tactical squad,devastator squad and the scout squad in this new codex.
Also i was wondering what was the best imperial tank that suits the new codex (open toped). I was thinking about a leman russ and cutting off the top of the turret or use a basilisk.
Thats all i can think of at the minuet.
Ohhh... im going to have a 3 mobs of 30 choppa boyz xD
Woop <3 the new codex!
I thought lootas was HS thus you could only use 3 units in the last codex?
Now they are elite, and so you can still only use 3 units.
When it comes to miniatures, its all about wysiwyg, if its clear that this is lootas i cant see anyone complaining about it. After all, you can convert miniatures all you want. But i would paint them in a orkish fasion. Just using the minis from you Spacemarine army would suck a bit.
Although the new lootas are a must for me, cant wait to paint them
Hum, maby i miss understood you Q?
THe deffgunz that all lootaz now carry have no fixed appereance, even the 4 versions GW have produced have been kitbashed from other weapons, so just glue a few extra weapons on them and you just fine.
For the looted wagon anything goes.
For the looted wagon, I recommend using a Chimera without the top armour and turret. It creates an area where boyz can be, and looks exactly like an 11-11-10 open-topped vehicle!

There's a minimum of 5 lootas to a squad now, so you can't go as low as 4.
If artwork in the codex is any indication, the standard looted vehicle is a russ, but it honestly can be anything. Personally, I'm using hellhounds, since I used to play IG.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by tactical, devastator and scout squads. Aren't those types of marine units?
The mob minimum size is 5 boyz but you actually only need 2 lootas since you can use 3 meks even in 5 boyz mob.
Their 'repair vehicle' ability isn't going to be very useful unless you're fielding 2-3 battlewagons. Everything else is going to get 'penned' and destroyed fairly quickly, considering it's already been fired at.
Is there something I'm missing about them?
Regardless, even then it wouldn't be 4 lootas fielded, it'd be 4 lootas and a mek. You still can't field 4 lootas by themselves.
I was just correcting you incase someone haven't read the codex, or doesnt remember every detail in it. I agree there's very limited uses for meks in loota squad. Though having an assault weapon in case you need to move the squad a bit might prove usefull.
i think for lootas you need at least 10 of them..
just imagine getting a 5/6 ... 30 shots hurrraaahh...!..
and also it reduces the chance of falling back if you get attacked by the enmy on the first turn x)
hope this helps
