vindicator quick tip
Posted by Brother Cornelius at 5/11/2010 12:38:00 PM
Just wanted to post a quick tip for those players running vindicators in their list. People are teased by the demolisher cannon, str 10, ap2, large blast, ordnance. very nice. It has a short range and quickly becomes a priority target. Thus, most people either tend to shy away from them, or take more than one, hoping to at least get a few of those nasty blasts off in a game. But the biggest complaint, from what I've read and seen, is that a simple weapon destroyed result renders the tank useless. (only having one weapon, the demolisher cannon) Meaning even glancing shots can become deadly. My quick tip is this: take the 20 points in upgrades. (using numbers from DA codex). take the storm bolter and the hunter killer missile, or at least just the storm bolter. thus, any weapon destroyed result, you have alternate choices other than the demolisher cannon to destroy. and don't forget that if you get immobilized or weapon destroyed and you don't' have any more weapons, it counts as wrecked. (great for necrons with Gauss cannons, bad for vindis). Take the extra weapons, very cheap, and give your vindis a few more rounds of shooting.
that's it for now, Be sure to check back soon on battle reports from my battle this past weekend with the crons.
