Default Re: The Looted Wagon - any good?

Quote:
Unfortunately your opponent gets to choose which weapon is removed, so the extra guns don't offer a lot to a Skorchawagon.
I should have said that differently. It prevents the wagon from becoming immobilized and leaves either the Scorcha or Shootas available for use. But yes, it is the attackers choice which weapon gets destroyed. I don't really think the scorcha wagon as the best application for a looted wagon in either case. The boomwagon seems the best usage of the slot.

Since it's not AP2 the Boomgun will wipe out a 5 man Termie squad about once for every two-hundred thousand (200,000) direct hits. I don't think that's quite in the same ballpark as the "Don't Press Dat" rule, which comes up once every six (6) turns or so.
LOL. I was just highlighting the fact that the boomgun is unpredictable. It's Str 8 and AP3, I know. It might take out a termie or two if the dice favour you. But yes, you are not going to wipe out a five man squad. It is best used against regular marines.

Thanks for your efforts! Should start some good discussion.
Thank you for cleaning up the few inconsistencies. I always seem to miss something no matter how much I proof read a tactica. Probably because I wrote it.
