Also are twin weapons really two wweapons stacked together and then and additional double shots at half range? So heavy bolters, according to that profile, shoot 12 times at half range? Make LR phobos better too with all those LC shots.

.... soooo.... combiweapons.... awesome that very few faction have that. Why ever take a regular plasma gun or meltagun?

I'm gonna sit here and wonder what I'm getting as an offset. I'm sure other races are getting something.

Wish we could see some melee profiles. Or a twin linked profile. They just swapped the Landraider's TLHB for a HB with 6 shots.

And now you never run out of combi-weapon ammo? More fun for marines I guess.

Twin linked fusion blasters/melta squads are going to be devastating. Especially since scattering deep strike is gone.

So, Hurricane bolters are 3 Twin-Linked Bolters, right?

That means 6-12 shots per side on a Land Raider Crusader.
Pretty good. Not sure if it's going to be good enough with for a Crusader compared to having 6 Heavy bolter shots and 2 Lascannon shots per side.

I wonder if they'll change anything about Storm Bolters. Were there any Twin-Linked Bolters? Those would just effectively make regular Storm Bolters obsolete.
Also, how did Combi-Bolters without another weapon type work again? Pretty sure there were those, without any extra weapon attached, too.

I dunno about worst but I'm really confused by it. They seemed to try and balance its hit number with the number of wounds it could generate but because of their new 'streamlined' system and it came out mangled as a result.

>> No.53162575

If a Meltagun is S8 Rend 4 Damage D6 we can work out approximate Flyrant stats

60 Multimeltas
3+ to hit modified to 4+ for snap shot, so 30 hits each generating average 4.2 wounds = 126 wounds
3+ to wound assuming T6 or 7, so 84 wounds go through.
If it has a 2+ save, that's 14 saved and so a Flyrant has T6 and 70 wounds.

I'm wondering the statline for Exorcists.

d6 shots, d3 wounds, -4 AP seems my guess (Since they already had random shots and AP 1 ends up at -4)

I don't dislike it for balance reasons. Without knowing the points and availability of it, we can't really make too much of a prediction there.

They want you to use Infantry for map control now and probably want other, dedicated units to take care of them now instead of Infantries shooting each other off the table.

Marines being that bad against Marines in shooting is also an indirect buff to melee, since that'll ignore the cover bonus and is just as likely to hit and wound.

You use a thing called tactics. Pin the squad down so they can't move without taking heavy damage. Then bring in something that can hurt them, like a flamerthrower unit or an assault unit. Meanwhile your opponent will be trying the same thing to you.

Ok envision this scenario. You are playing an unlucky ork mech player, who has to bunch up his vehicles because they take all his damn space up. Now being the cheezy piece of shit you are, you have filled your drop pods with sternguard with combi meltas. You land your 3 pods in front of his line. Now old rules say 3 of those vehicles would be fucked and everyone else is fine, but this is NuGW. Now you can take your 10 to 15 meltaguns, and splitfire. So 2 meltaguns per trukk. Remember there is no scatter on deep strike, so get fucked orks. You are blowing up 5+, 5 being average with a potential 7. This assumes anything less than 8 toughness with 7 or so wounds.

So, as we can see, the bolter does a single wound per hit, and so is optimised for shooting models that have a single wound themselves, whereas the lascannon, one of the most powerful man-portable weapons in the game, kicks out D6 damage, allowing it to blast chunks off large vehicles and monsters and kill light vehicles and characters in a single hit.

Who cares? units that can take combi-weapons are almost always MEQs with 3+ to hit. You're going down to 50% hit chance but doubling your shots, the bolter part can still wound whatever it is you shoot at now.

5 plasma shots at 3+ is roughly 3.3 hits. 10 shots (5 plasma, 5 bolter) at 4+ is 5 hits. By mixing in the bolter shots you increase the chance your plasmas will hit and generally throw more damage downrange.

Now either I'm an idiot who can't understand what they wrote, or they did not give a profile with twin linked. That twin heavy bolter shoots all 6 shots at full range, rather than the new twin linked profile of 3 shots far, 6 shots at half range.

I'm a skeptical of GW as the next Anon, but it's too early to be declaring any single facet of the new rules broken. IF deep strike is going to be risk-free in the new edition, anything with the ability built-in will see a relative price increase. If you want to bitch about shit that's going to be shit based on current spoilers, vehicles will be better than MC's based on current spoilers. A LRBT can't fight back in melee, which means that, point for point, it should be more effective than a Riptide as far as mobility, defense, and shooting output are concerned. A Riptide can punch shit to death in melee, which needs a point cost, but fully optimized lists favor optimization instead of generalization.
