just a thought, deployable static weapons? (think machine gun turrets and the like) this could give an entirely new twist to some situations :)

how would you think they would be set up? air lifted or brought in by a truck of some kind? if you had a basic unit carry it around they would go so SLOOOW seeing is how a static turret would have to be pretty big to do any damage.

but they could work using an over-watch ability if left unmaned

What if you mounted it on a howitzer-like chassis? You could possibly mount it on a wheelbarrow or something.

i was more thinking along the lines of having a squad bring it and set it up (carrying individual pieces of one big gun)

What if it was a scenario based weapon? A gun nest left abandonned so that a squad within range can use it.

Ironically they do have them in 40k. they're called tarantulas :mrgreen: . rules I've read for them is they are air dropped onto the field and set to either shoot at a narrow angle, or full 360 degrees with less distance

So what if it started out on the board like terrain, and whoever was within 1" or so could use it, at the price of their normal ranged attacks.

I like that sounds like the turrets in Halo3 so they would be heavy 2 carry around so they should be like terrain
