So I found a box of these fellas online for half price and figured 'Why not?' I recall one game where the GW manager thrashed my guys with a combination of lightning claws, fists and a Terminator Chaplain. But for general purposes, I'm not entirely sure what their role and ideal load out is.
Are they a good assault unit? They don't have hammers and shields like Assault Terminators, but still have solid smashy options and are rather tough without shields regardless. However, they are also slower.
Are they meant to be fire support? They can put out a decent amount of dakka, and rock a Heavy Flamer. But Terminators seem better suited for a pure shooty approach as well, between the Assault Cannon and Missile Launcher options.
It seems like they straddle the middle ground between shooty, smashy and durable. If that's the case, how would you lot equip them? I plan to magnetize, but I'd like to get the most ideal armaments tacked on first.
As for me, I tend to lean towards assault (surprise, surprise) so how would they best be equipped for that role? Just a mix of claws, fists and guns?
