that makes sense!!

Just trying to get my rules mechanics and such!

would be cool to have some robot sidekicks kicking around thoughteehee.gif

 

Would people equip terminators with mixed combi weapon loadouts?

I have some models with a few combi-meltas and plasmas and a plasma blaster. just wondering if it's a good decision to keep them as is?

In large games you can do 50/50 mixed terminator squad. I was experimenting with plasma melta 8-9 strong squad some time ago. Again, it really depends (terrain, RoW, turn they arrive, what opponent already has on the table...) BUT in Orbital Assault you can teleport them, pop vehicle with melta/shred some infantry with plasma and use spent combi termies as a shields and then you can use other combi. Very difficult to pull it off, unit is very expensive and generally not worth it. Especially vs the same opponent hehe.

When a Great Beast marauds, the warriors of the keep do not seek terms with it, they do not ride out and ask for it to accommodate their feelings. They set forth with shocklance and power sword, and all the courage and determination they can muster. They find the beast and they lay their blades upon it until it is dead, or they are.

Those cataphractii look sweet @Gorgoff i like the shoulder pads and the bolters i think i prefer over the standard combi after seeing them like that, less like a big brick and more like something actually holdable, would they be possible to magnetise like that so you can swap between melta & plasma for example?

 

@rendingon1+ i can imagine that to be quite a bit of a fire magnet, a 2+/4++ meatshield is quite something though teehee.gif

Sure it is, that's why using this unit is difficult (and as I said not really worth it). And I forgot BS can't use RoWs, shame on me. Anyway, do as Gorgoff adviced and better do not mix :)

Sure, all you have to do is put a magnet on top of the hand and on under the gun where the grip should be.
Since I'm way to lazy for this I simply build both variants.
Here're my Combi-meltas:
