I was just wondering, has GW or White Dwarf come out with rules for adding a burst cannon to your Fire Warrior squads yet, or has anyone ever considered it before the video game came out? I have always thought the basic Fire Warrior squad was a little under powered compaired to thoughs d#$m Space Marines and Imp Guard.
I thought I heard somewhere that firewarriors would be getting eventually a burst cannon model. As for when it comes out well we all know GW and if it does it probably will take them forever to get it out.
Mmmmmmmmmm Fire Worrier with Burst Cannon
I rented Fire Warrior the other day (still have it in fact) and I like it as long as I don't compare it to 40k. When I do I think that the weapon strength is quite a bit off. For example: the bolter is better than the pulse rifle, not a little better but alot better, it beats the crap out of everything. Another example is that the bolter chaos space marines have is different(and better) than the normal spcae marine one.
The burst cannon is awesome though, If there is going to be rules, and a cool model, for fire warriors using a burst cannon I would probably be interested. I don't think fire warriors need more fire power but I could always use more of it!
But imho Fire Warrtors are good the way they are.
But ghosts need a anti tank weapon.
I mean come on, how are they supposed to disturb enemy supply lines if they have no weapons to take out tanks?
Though I think having burst cannons available in Fire Warriors would be a good option, very hazardous for enemies, it makes the stealth teams be less unique.....
if they got burst cannons they'd have to be cheap, say +10pts other wise you may as well just take 3 fire warriors with carbines which gives you 2 extra wounds and the ability to cause pinning
less hate more kittens
"Though I think having burst cannons available in Fire Warriors would be a good option, very hazardous for enemies, it makes the stealth teams be less unique..... " Stealth teams would still have their stealth systems, much better mobility, and a far better save. So they would still be a unique squad. But it would be cool if one of the stealth team members could be armed with say ....... a plasma gun, or fusion blaster.
lol I'm not an idiot I know what the Stealth have better, but I still think it would take some of it's essence away, of course I'm not saying I wouldn't like burstcannons in FW teams... I don't think stealth should be allowed the opthion of fusion blasters and plasma rifles it would make the stealth teams more powerful, which really is not at all needed, perhaps a flamer would go nicely with a stealth squad though..
