    If you mix, then it should be two dissies and one lance. That&#39;s because dissies can be fired as defensive weapons in 4th edition, this way you can fire all three weapons after a 12" move.

    Nevertheless most players prefer to use only one type of weapon (dissies, that is).

    i prefer to only use one type depending on the army but this way if you fire at 24 armour your dissies will be wasted while if you had 3 DL&#39;s then you get more likely to kill or if with 3 dissies befect SM killin anything goodness.

    i suppose you could mix as it would be more flexible but also less effectiveness it is your choice flexibility or effectiveness

    I&#39;d go with straight 3, even in tournaments when you have to worry about being balanced.

    Always take 3 dissies, the ULTIMATE troop killer, I will promise you. Better than Ordnance I actually believe.

    Anyways, for anti-tank, get some DL sniper squads.

    And if you want another dissie, just order it. ^_^

    Or convert your DLs.

    BTW, it should have come w/2 Dissies and one DL, not vice versa.

    If you remember the DE mantra ("speed is our armor"), then the choice becomes clear: either 3 dissies or 2 dissies and 1 DL. Ideally, you will never move slowly enough to ever fire 3 DLs. Thus, they&#39;re a waste. Furthermore, with the new rules governing template placing, getting more than one full hit with the template is getting harder and harder. Firing 3 shots from the dissie instead of one template isn&#39;t even a disadvantage anymore.

    even though 3 dark lances aint worth it, it can actually have its uses. Taking out a tank is extremely easy with 3. The strategy is to pop out from cover and shoot, but its tough with the movement and fire. Can you move up to 5 inches and fire all 3 weapons? Just wondering. Cuz if you can only fire 1 main with 6 inch move what about 5?

    Anyhow, killing a tank is simple with 3. BUT with 1 and 2 dissies, tanks are harder to kill. My ravager is made to tank kill to make sure he is worth the points in the battle.

    So i have 3 questions... can you move 5 inches and fully fire everything?
    and how much do you have to move for everything to glance, and how does the glancing thing work?

    I am still trying to figure out some stuff with rules and stuff.

    With this so far I am convinced to carry a ravager with 3 dls. It seems to tank hunt like mad.
