Default Armoured Company Question

Since AC is pretty much IG I thought this would be an appropriate place to put this-

Does anybody actually use Siege Regiments effectivley? What are their drawbacks, as opposed to their obvios strength of lots of big ass guns?

And another minor thing- How do you actualy play guess range weapons? do you pick a target then guess range or waht?

thanks

I know not much about AC but guess range i can help with.

Pick a target, guess the range in inches. Make sure you measure these first as if you fire with a weapon not guess range it cancels them.

Once you sort your range place the template and scatter it. Hope for the best

I belive that was the case in third edition, it is not the case now.
GW took the "guess" out of guess range.

Now you pick a target, put the blast template on it, and scatter...no more guessing.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Which Is a good idea and badd idea...

Character "sniping" has now stopped, but, now, there's no skill involved.

well, theri main weakness is the fact that your few in number. And it only takes one lascannon armed tactical squad to take out 200 points of your army.

Not good. Therefore you have to ystematicaly nuke EVERY embeded AT weapon your opponent has whilst avoiding all the EMP and melta bombs.
