Default Equipping your Vechiles? how do you do it..........

Simple, post what you like to equip to your vechiles and what you think its effective against.

Mine is simple sentinel stuff

Catachan pattern sentinel- Smoke launcher, Extra armour. if need be, improved comms.

The smoke launchers allow my sentinels to get close without being shot at, this gives my Flamers the greatest chance of doing damage.

Well, I like a variety of sentinels and I like a lot of them.* I like 3xMulti, 3xAC, 3xLC...the LC ones get armored crew compartment for extra survivability, and all of them get HK missiles.* Since their job is to shoot, and they all have decent range, I don't play with smoke.* If I had catachan pattern, I'd obviously take smoke.* The 9 HKs, fired in volleys of threes (three squads), are great for taking out vehicles on turn 1.* I've never gotten less than one popped vehicle this way, usually get 2, once I even got 3.* Very economical!

As for other vehicles, I never put sponsons on my tanks, S5 weapons that usually don't get fired anyway are a waste.* I always take the LC hull weapon, to at least get some use out of the vehicle after a "weapon destroyed" result, although the thought of rolling around with 3xHB behind AV14 has a lot of appeal to it...

My chimeras are stock, as in ML turret and HB hull, although and chimmies I build in the future will take the HF, since I mostly use them to close with the enemy, so range isn't so much of an issue. Oh, and of course I take smoke!

My basilisks never take the indirect option.* none of my vehicles, except the chimeras, take pintle mounts.

With chimeras I take smoke launchers and a heavy stubber for my storm trooper squads. I use double heavy flamer, smoke launchers, and a heavy stubber if I have the points on my Ogryn's chimera.

On my Russ I only use a hull mounted heavy bolter, but I'm thinking of switching to a lascannon because my army is weak against tanks.

i regard extra armour, ans smoke lauchers as obligatory upgrades to any imperial vehicles.

regarding loadouts, id stick to twin h.bolters on chimeras, and 3 h.bolters, or a lascannon on leman russes. i find a lascannon, 2 h.bolters and cannon are just too mixed up to porivide any definitive role in an IG list, so i tend to sepcialise it to have a secondary tank hunting ability, or secondary anti horde ability.

Har har...

Anyway, my Vehicles all get the obligitory Smoke Launchers and Extra Armour and rough terrain mod.

in addition, Chimera's all get storm bolters, can't say how many times those extra shots come in handy..

and sentinels all get closed crew compartment.. simply because I can't stand open-topped sentinel models.. ugly!
