Default Sentinels...with Mortars! :o

So I was tinkering with this idea at school. And I thought that since my guard's favourite heavy weapon is the mortar why not stick with my Canadian theme eh?

So would it be plausible to mount a mortar on the sentinel?

I was thinking it would be 10 points to mount it on. It would be a cool conversion ^-^

Forge World made a Sentinel with a multiple-rocket pod... same effect as a Mortar, IIRC.

I dunno about a mortar. I mean what's the point of a scout with a non line of sight weapon? Now a multiple rocket pod, I would love to see.

The all knowing and omnipitent IA1 says the MRP is same effect as a mortar but only 24" range and needs line of sight, and has 2 blast templates.

That MRP sounds nice. Having one of those on a Wartrack would be awesome.

Hey GD, Ddidn't think I'd find you her too

i see your point GeekyGator but I want something different for my sentinels. Not just the four variants in the codex.

I understand that, just doesn't make sense tactically to put essentially an artillery piece on a scout vehical. MRP's or Missile Launchers are good.

sentinels are fragile, letting them hide and shoot would prolong their life significatly! maybe have one regular sentinel in a squad be a "spotter" sentinel to help them say pin down an enemy scout group.

the regular mortar i wouldnt call artillery. 1 small blast bolter? not even close to artillery. now if its the griffon mortar, now we're talking! (about artillery, that is)

ehhhh this mrp sounds like the chaos havoc launcher.

well... it would be fluffy... not very practicle but fluffy. the only time i use sentinels anyway is when i need to pack in some autocannons to kill some orks or nids with. and i never use mortars.

+++If you put a mortar on a sentinel, get the rules from Imperial Armour 1. use rules for sentinel with missile pods.+++
