Starcannons

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Starcannons

Post by beuille » Tue Apr 03, 2012 4:07 pm

Hey guys I would love to know your thoughts on Starcannons, are they worth their points or just too expensive?

At Ap2 I just feel they might help kill those stupid marines but at a heavy 2 rating guardians will just miss?

With marines in mind what would people say is the best weapon to take to get rid of marines? Im thinking scatter laser as it causes more saves?

unless you have clear LOS ( no cover saves) and guide starcannons arent that great any more.

Your best bet for killing marines is in hand to hand, or through torrent of fire really.

This is your best bet. You can get AP 1 or 2 in much cheaper means than Star Cannons. There are way better options for the mounts which they take up.

If they were the same points cost as Scatter Lasers they would be worth taking however they are not so they are worthless.

I am a massive fan of just spamming scatter lasers and shuri cannons. Torrent of fire ftw.

I am a fan of double scatters on a warwalker. 8 S6 shots can do sme damage, generally hitting with four but can do some serious damage to a squad
