Default What did you equip your Mek boy with?

For those of you who have purchased the new loota/burna boy box set just wondering what you modelled your Mek boy with? I'm debating on equiping mine with Bigshootas since they can also be used with my normal boyz or using the KMB? Just wondering what all of you did or are planning?

i'm not entirely sure but i don't think that the mek can even have a kff unless he is the big mek
my bad i misread your post but now that i think about what you actually asked i think the the kgb is far more effective than big shoota because the orks are very low on things that can kill 2+ save stuff so kgb are good for that especially if you do a drive by shooting with them in a wartrukk I haven't tried using meks with kgb's yet but i have tried them without and they are very vital for getting rid of terminators and the like (look at battle report I recently posted)

I'm leaning towards the KMB myself. It's a weapon that fills a roll we have little of, as vercingatorix is saying, AP2. I haven't gotten my box yet, soon, but that's most likely what I'll slap on him.

I plan on running 3 meks in a burna squad behind some killa khans that will have Big Shootas as well so I kinda figured they could just help out. COmbine that with the fact that a MEk with a Big Shoota can also be a boy with one is what is winning me over. Only thing holding me back is that the KMB does fill a unique role like the two of you stated...grrrrr what to do...

if you are going to have 3 meks then the KMB is probably the best bet as at least 1 should statisticly hit a model. combine that with insta death on marine characters on a 2+ to wound roll and completely ingroring power or atificier armor, you've got a realy nasty squad

Explain the big shoota also on a boy part? Do you mean, you could use that Mek as a boy with a big shoota? Just trying to figure out your thought on that part.

Yep, I could use that Mek as a Boy with a Big Shoota when I'm not fielding meks.

Multi-use models, can't blame you. You must have some extra parts laying around to let you use the big shoota off that sprue on some other boy, no?

Hmm, i donīt run Mekz with KMB in both, Lootaz and Burnaz squad. In a Lootaz squad, they just wonīt fire, because of their max range. And Burnaz, for me are CC-specialists > and i would always field them in a looted wagon or a battlefortress, so a KMB would be wasted.

So i assembled the Body and Legs bitz from the Lootaz/Burnaz sprue with the rockit launcher to a simple boy for my slugga boys squad.

I'd rather not, besides, those KMBs could work better on Killa kanz where the extra BS comes to play.
