To begin with Rocket Launchers are your best bet. Their your anti-tank as well as Anti-infantry. Definently our most versitile weapon. Those or auto cannons will serve you well.

However, what do you fgace alot of at your club/Gw?

Last time I was there, there were 4 Marine players and 2 Imperial Guard players. These are going in squads not Heavy Weapons Platoons aswell.

It just depends what army tou are playing. If you actually bought the heavy weapons team box you can make a full six heavy weapon squads if you have a few extra guardsmen. That will allow you to have an assortment of different weapons for different enemies.

Autocannons love to eat up good save units so use them to their full. Think bad shooting with guardsmen so the extra shot really helps.

A squad of mortars barraging an enemy unit can do more harm than a full squad of rapid firing lasguns. I love them! Pinning as well... makes the enemy shudder at what they can do.

Bolters and Missile Launchers. Missile launchers are DEFINATLEY best out of ML/Las, and IMO bolters beat out autocannon hands down. The guardsmen's BS isn't enough for the autocannon to be truly effective. Actually, IMO, the only way heavies are worth it is in squads. Your troops should be getting in rapid fire range.

mortars, missile launchers, or heavy bolters are about the only useful choices in mass like that. all however take on different roles in the battlefield so it would depend on how you are trying to gear up your army.

Well, these are my first Heavy Weapons built, but this is a new army so that's understandable to you guys (I hope), I went with a Missle Launcher, an Autocannon, and Heavy Bolter. Sound good to you guys?
