Welcome to Librarium Online!
ok... so i was just thinking that if you gave a squad of war walkers 1 eml and 1scatter laser each
Could you move the 6 inches and fire the scatter laser and then fire the eml Plasma
and do you guys think this would be a better combo than 2 scatter lasers or 2 eml's?
As far as I know if you dont run you get shoot both of them, at the same time. I personally prefer scatter lasers. I don't know, I just love those 4 shots.
sorry i think i didn't word it properly
ok i meant if it moved at combat speed in the shooting phase could it shoot an Eml(plasma) and a scatter laser.
So Do you guys load up the walker with all scatter lasers, scatter and Eml's or all Eml's
- walkers can only move at combat speed (up to 6") during the movement phase
- walkers can fire all available weapons regardless of distance moved
- walkers can give up firing to run d6" during the shooting phase
As for weapons choice I prefer 2x scatter lasers each, full squadron giving you 24 str 6 shots. Awesome for troop killing and enough shots that you should get a few glances on 12 Armored vehicles. With outflank it is rather easy to do.
I also like a doomseer with guide to hang around essentially making those 24 shots twin-linked and re-rolls on Str 6 wounds are sick.

Pretty much second what Torden said.
Scatter lasers are devastating to hordes, and pretty capable MEQ killers too. Personally I own 6 Walkers, 3 that have dual scatter lasers, and another 3 with dual EMLs. I never use the EML ones anymore. They are nice for mid level tank hunting, but even with 6 of them they aren't reliable enough.
Shuriken Cannons or more Scatter Lasers are ideal. Shuriken Cannons are great on outflanking walkers because you are very likely to get in range, and the price is dirt cheap.
I agree on shuriken cannons. yes you do lose range and 1 shot, but its dirt cheap and you gain an AP point. Perfect against those guards!
thanks for all the quick reply's
i think i might go for scatter laser walkers just for the sheer amount of shots
they are my main fire base, but i'd definently go for the shuri cannon if i'm outflanking
Huge amount of shots at very cheap price.
Would it make you're force Un-balanced if you don't follow the force organization chart?
