Default Drop Sentinels

Can they be fielded in standard IG armies? I don't want them so much for the Deep Strike ability, moreso for the weapon options. Multi-Melta on a sentinel!? Yes! If no, I'll probably just go with a Support sentinel, but y'know...

without dropping, not sure how you expect to get a fragile short-range machine to 2d6 pen distance....

kinda doubt it anyhow

They are meant for Elysian troops due to the lack of heavy weapons support, ie no tanks.

Very Short range though on the Multi-Melta

I guess you just need IA3 to use them.

You can still use them in any IG army... they are a support sentinel. You just need the rules to use them

Kewl, I got IA3, but no where does it say they can be used by normal IG armies, only Drop Troops.

It says that the Imperial guard uses various Sentinels . . . and drop sentinels. I don't have the book in front of me but I did look at it before replying earlier to your post. It does not say the Elysians exclusively the Drop Sentinel or the Multi-melta or the Heavy bolter version. It just states that those versions are usually used because of Elysians lack of heavy support.

You would need your opponents permission since it is from IA3.

Consent's not really an issue, because I normally only play with friends and we understand that FW rules are normally balanced, or tipped in the direction of expensive if anything.
