Where else is it possible to buy two Heavy Bolters for ten points in the Imperial Guard list? I would call adding sponsons one of the cheapest upgrades in the entire army list. Not to mention, they are actually useful in this edition of 40k since it is now possible to move and fire them. Also, there will come a time when the main battle cannon is rendered useless and at that exact moment, the Heavy Bolters will be worth their weight in gold.My russes don't get any upgrades, or sponsons either. Just a HHB. I think the sponsons are really oversized and dumb looking, and I'm really cheap with my tanks anyways. That's the Imperial Guard way, cheap cheap cheap!
