Default Armored Sentinel Plasma Cannon

Am I the only one who doesn't like the look of the new sentinal plasma cannon?

The Space Marine plasma cannon looks better, regardless of how more deadly it is to the user.

The Dreadnought Cannon looks even better as it has a more clean and some-what urgonomic look to it.

So again, am I the only one who doesn't like the Sentinal Plasma Cannon?

i suppose you could always chuck a space marine plasma cannon, or even a Tau one if your gutsey :P and then treat it as a sentinel plasma. Your opponents should still recognize it as a plasma cannon, and will know that IG have different values

if i dont like the look of something, i sometimes do that - i have particular fun with looted dreadnoughts in this fashion for my orkzies

well to be honest, i dont like the look of the sentinel, let alone the weapons. i think it should resemble a dune buggy or somthing to the like.

Meh, the Imperial Guard ain't all about looks. The Imperial Guard might be ugly but they pack a lot of firepower. That's one thing I like about the Guard.

I hate the look of the sentinel, but i've been thinking, my guard are rebels who have brushed up with tau, would it be too far fetched to use tau XV8s as sentinel stand ins?

they remind me too much of star wars. i dont like mixing my sci fi groups i guess. but, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and conversions in the hand of the guy with a hobby knife.

i would say that it depends on how armored it looks. as cool as they are, battlesuits still dont have an armor rating. even broad sides.

Comparing IG models to any other is heresy.
