Default What is your favourite heavy weapon?

I was just wondering what heavy weapons everyone likes. I am talking here about fluff and looks on the weapon and not its gameplay stats.

I like the autocannon because it looks so much like an AT-rifle, like in the great war.

and I like the mortar because its depicts the guard so well (dudes in a dugout "Need cover fire at grid tango 12.18" "roger that" *Poof*)

Missile launcher. Great strength, cheaper than the layz-cannon ( ) and can switch to killing swarms and massed GEQ... not bad at all.

Looks goes to Heavy bolter, fluff goes to missile launcher.

I like the autocannon...marginally less effective against meatshields and able to rip up light and occasionally even medium vehicles better than anything really. Fire Support squads were made for this unique gun, in my mind...since almost nobody else can really even have them.

Bolters of any kind are a marines best friend. plus I have the worst luck rolling dice so I need three chances to get a hit with BS 4.

BS4?

*Ahem*

This is the Guard board... :

[hr]

It's close between the Autocannon and Missile Launcher... I think the latter takes the cake as for what I'd be using if I went to war.

Then definitely the autocannon still...I just love the way the weapon looks and what it does. Throwing out all those massive shells...

AutoCannon for the win ... It fires faster and its barrel is pretty long.

I have ot agreewith the Autocannon... it really looks like a heavy fire support weapon, in my opinion...not to mention its ingame stats...
