Default question about a looted vehicle in combat patrol.

the basilisk; my understanding is that this is completely legal within a combat patrol, but is it worth taking, considering its indirect fire may become useless by turn two?

...and on that matter, which looted vehicles are the 'best' to field, say, against T4, 3+, medium to heavy terrain foes.

i don't think you can take ordanance in combat patrol.. but it could be pretty nasty if you have it direct..indirect would be pretty useless i think

In combat patrol - just stick it in the open! Im being dead serious here - how many lascannons are wandering around in Combat patrol?? How many missile launchers? Just stick it in some cover and pelt away.

that's actually a fairly good point, just plunking it out in the open and unleashing hell on my foes!

...then again, my friends really try to squeeze as many minimized las/plas teams on the board as they can, so maybe not.

Then it may not be the best idea in the world if they do that.

If I was you i'd take as many ork boyz in squads of about 20 boyz each and show them the error of their ways - lascannons can only kill one ork a turn.

I concur with Silk here. Get 2 units of 20 Ork Slugga Boyz with maxed out Burnas. With that many boyz, you should be able to survive enough fire to get into close combat. Against anything, 20 boyz are going to rule the day. The only thing that might kill it for you is a very shooty enemy. But, meh, every force has its weakness.

I think that the logic behind using a Basilisk in Combat Patrol is to use it in a Direct fire roll only.

Still, it would take up over 25% of your 400 point limit. That's a lot of faith put into an armour 10 vehicle.

Best Regards,

...Except for the fact that you can't take either of those on accounts of them have over 33 armor all around.
