Hail, Battle Cousins!
I've been looking at interesting ally combinations between my armies, mostly to support my main BT Crusade, and one of my available options is the DA, but what to use?
I was reading through the FAQ and stumbled across the Company Veterans Errata. Instead of 3 models swapping out their boltguns for options x,y, and z, the whole unit can!
Well since the spiritual equivalent in the BT dex is... lacking (Seriously, Sword Brethren are rather terrible for their price). I figured I could try to make use of them somehow.
How do you guys usually field them, if at all?
The most humourous combination I thought of was have the whole unit use Plasma Pistols/Bolt pistols. Probably in a Rhino. Ride up, hop out and Gunslinger the crap out of their target. Granted this is pretty expensive, point-wise, but I figure it'd be worth a laugh if nothing else.
The idea is to provide some form of support shooting to the BT's stabby-stabby nature, and as inexpensive as they are, Devastators aren't all that maneuverable (which is a necessity against a few of my usual opponents).
Thoughts on Veterans? Opinions? Experiences? Anything?
- Ususal game sizes: 1500-2000
- Casual. Tournaments on a weekend at someone's place is as competitive as we get.
Thanks a ton in advance.
