Is the 2+ save of the centurion worth the majority toughness of 4?

What?

TRA put Angron, Surlak and a centurion with AA in a dreadclaw. I asumed in order to be able to put any ap3 hits on him and not on angron, but by doing so as oppossed to only put Angron and Surlak together the unit now has a toughness of 4 as oppossed to 6 if there were only Angron and Surlak.

Sorry if it was worded unclear.

only 10 man squads because I ran out of points.

Jorum, that is interesting as it hadn't occurred to me :/ I'm hoping any ID hits or such I would pass back so Angron can make his saves on them. Running crimson path, the centurion has a 2+ 5++ and a 3+ FNP. So any ap3 shots will be taken on the centurion. Any str 8 or ap 2 i'll look out sir and send them back to angron, 3+ 4++ and 4+ FNP.

The main aim of the unit is just to cause havoc throughout the enemies back field.

I would have bigger than 10 man squads and I used to roll inductii, but I found I had no scoring so it messed me up game wise (was hella fun hitting with that many st6 hits though xD )

It's starting to get really dusty in here... ;)

 

So I'm currently looking at adding some sky hunter jetbikes to my WE army, as I really like the look and don't have a lot of fast attack units.

 

So the question will be how to equip them? Especially the heavy weapon and is the seargent upgrade useful or mostly a waste of points? If yes is there any viability for a caedre weapon?(I'm stil trying to find a place for at least one of them purely for the rule of cool) (The intended usage would be as a harassing unit against annoying enemy backfield units).

 

 

@TheRedAngel Did you get to try out your little murder-squad? If yes how did it go?

Outriders can take power weapons and are a bit cheaper if you want a combat unit, otherwise you could consider a command squad, now they will be tasty with some upgrades for sure.

Both are good!

 

If you don't specifically need the jetbikes though, bikes are a good alternative as they already have a 2+ save, so don't benefit from the jetbike as much.

I might get a bike-command squad and some normal jetbikes. Did I read it right that they can't get caedre-weapons?

The Sergeant can, but why would he? ;)

No, they cannot take them - Characters only. But chainaxes are free and amazing!

Also, you may want to consider Charnabal sabres. They’re only 5ppm, and as Command Squad members can all accept challenges (Chosen Warriors special rule), they get +1 Initiative when using them!

Bike Command Squads are a really decent unit actually, but Attack Bike Squads are even better! With chainaxes they each have 5 S5, AP4 attacks on the charge, on a T5, W2 model with a 3+ save. Each model can fire their twin-linked boltgun and heavy weapon on the way in too. Excellent option for World Eaters.
