Default My squad for a Tech Preist.

I have a Tech preist because it was cool (no good reason) so what do you use them for.

Heal Tanks.

The Wargear rules make the heavy weapons overly costly, and I don't get why you'd use CC at all in the first place.

Therefore, I use them (in the hypothetical sense), for what they are meant to do, heal tanks.

i give them a storm bolter and equipt them with 2 heavy bolter servitors. they can shoot stuff up but also has the ability to fix tanks. plus you get to roll lots of dice.

Target practice for my tanks. ^.^

Never use them. I spend my points on things that give me results. Quickly.

I keep them behind tanks with a heavy bolter and plasma cannon servitor around each side to shoot while the techpriest is safe from harm and can fix stuff ;D

I use them to look nice on my shelf, rules wise for their points the models simply are'nt that effective, they look very cool though and that by itself is enough reason to own one IMHO.
