Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on getting heavy stubbers on a chimera? 3 shot defensive weapon seems good, but 10 points is pretty steep.
I use the same setup. The stubbers look great and definitely add a bit of strength to an already good tank. They are wonderful if your chimeras aren't moving full tilt towards the enemy or objectives every turn. It may not be worth the points in those types of lists.I generally include them on my chimeras. I usually run them as Multilaser, Heavy Flamer and Heavy Stubber. If I target the Multilaser at an infantry squad then the extra 3 shots are very useful and the Multilaser is already AP6 so the target unit are generally going to get saves anyway (unless they are Orks or Kroot!).
Quoted for the truth. Absolutely correct, and just like Ravendove said, that's two grenade launchers that can potentially get you a lot more kills, or a meltagun that'll take out a vehicle, etc..I use like everyone else if I have the points.
10points for three S4 36" shots is good, but 6 S5,AP4 shots from Heavy Bolters on Vendettas is better for the same points.
