Default last chancers

i've been wondering about the last chancers.
is it actually possible to have colonel, lieutenant and 20 last chancers, each chancer a specialist with a bolt pistol/plasma pistol and power weapon? (if a bolt pistol also carapace).
i know this will be an expensive squad, over 600 points.* Is that actually possible though? because if it is,thats like 80odd power weapon attacks on the charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also, is yarrick amazing, or is yarrick amazing?

Yes, if each is a specialist...
Or you could just use the original Chancers...


Yarrick is over rated.

Too trute about Gaunt... Him adn Scheffer have to be two of the most well rounded characters in the game.

I don't use any special characters in any games. They don't fit my storyline, and they don't fit my style. But on paper, Yarrick looks amazingly good.

I have used Yarrick in alot of games. I either use him as a special character in my Command HQ, or I treat him as a normal commissar with a power fist and a stormbolter.
I've seen the old Last Chancers models in action, and they are amazing! They earned like 3 times thier points value in kills! Also, they are pretty cool models. But it would be sweet if you made a squad like the old models, but but different weapons, wargear, etc. I was thinking about doing this, but I just have too much things to do. If you make the squad your insisting, post it in Showcase so we can see it.

I haven't played with the rules for Gaunt. I just use him as a normal commissar in Game terms, and instead of camo, I painted his cloak red.

Yarrick has actually done very well for me. He fizzed out over 200 bolter shots, killed 2 full squads of marines, a dreadnought, a predator, and 2 rhinos in one game alone.

Then you are very lucky. That is really amazing.

Ha, Interesting... I've seen Sly Marbo do better though... 2000 (or around) points of Chaos Iron warriors were no match for Sly and his two trusty snipers!!

But Yarrick looks good on paper but is too pricy, Gaunt is the perfect character... able to make back double his points before he dies in most battles, as most characters are supposed to. Kinda hard with some though, C'Tan and Abbadon for instance.
