I don't disagree about the combi-plasma, but with all the lists I have made, I have had to account for almost every point and a storm bolter is only 4 points. I would love all combis but then I would have to loose either my missle launchers with my stalkers or models from my teleporting Primaris kill teams.

If you are going for just plasma then have a serious look at running a Hellblaster squad - they are one of the best units in the SM codex.

Heh.  And if youre looking at running Helblasters, have a look at Fortis kill teams.  It greatly shores up all of their weaknesses.

Idk, I kinda feel a second inceptor of any flavor is just overcosted for what it brings.  Fall back and shoot is worth the points hike, but only barely.  I've had pretty awesome plays with 5 HB in a FKT, and only once been at all inconvenienced by getting locked in melee.  When i need to shave points, the helblaster teams inceptor is one of the first things to go

IMO two plasma Inceptors are better than three Hellblasters. I play Ultramarines too and being able to fall back and still shoot is a big deal.

Yeah, if you're already getting the plasma fix from teleporting Primaris, stick with that.

I agree with you, that's why I didn't include Hellblasters in the initial topic... for DW the best tactic seems to be putting 5 intercessors and 5 hellblasters together and deep strike, no question. It handles all varieties of threats but it really needs to prioritize vehicles (T7 & T8) and such first.

 

Regular plasma should not target them unless you need to chip off those 1 or 2 wounds for the kill. It's also cheaper in a sense that I can sprinkle a couple in a storm bolter squad and still have something effective.

 

I've got a list I'll post up in the Army list side in a bit, and I'll link it for reference to this topic.... - http://www.bolterand...cus-experiment/
