All hail the plasmagun! The greatest anti-meq weapon in the IG codex!Xethemez said:I agree with Hermann Morr, I can't see 13 marines being able to take enough damage to stay in the game. Just use plasmaguns, they are an excelent weapon for dealing with any infantry in the game - and at 500pts you will be seeing mostly infantry. You can't go far wrong with them.
As an example, I just wrote an army with to win this. It has 3 5-man grenadier squads, 3 5-man storm trooper squads and a command squad, all maxed out with plamsaguns. That's 12 BS4 plasmaguns and 4 BS3 plasmaguns - exactly 500pts, space the squads 7" apart and you can't loose.
But of course that army is cheesy and tailored. I'm just making a point about the effectivness of the plasmagun here!
