LR Sppt Unit of 7x Havocs: Infiltrate or Tank Hunters. 2x Lascannon, Missile Launcher, Autocannon [229pts] – I’m still not sure whether to choose
Infiltrate or Tank Hunters.
Hopefully, with 2 units of Furies and the configuration of the Raptor squad, two CSM units with Infiltrate, Deep Striking Terminators and maybe Obliterators with a Teleport Homer, most of my army can (and probably should) get in my opponents face pretty quickly.
I’ve seen Raptors give 3x Meltaguns and Furious Charge on a number of lists. Surely to get the best from Furious Charge, you need most of the unit to be pistol armed, and that’s why I’ve chosen a lighter load-out for them. Though 3 Meltaguns can do nasty damage, and are Assault weapons, with the extra Initiative and Strength, I’d prefer to be charging with multi-weapon attacks.
Giving MoCU to the Raptors also seems to be an extremely logical choice, but I think they’ll work best with Furious Charge. As I want them to have Infiltrate, this means they can’t have a Chaos Mark, which is a pain!
Using some Daemons seems quite appealing, but judging from the amount of lists that are posted, which don’t contain any Deamons, I guess they
ain’t that good? Still I need to see for myself, though any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Should I lose a CSM to upgrade the Lt. to a Lord?
