Default Altered FOF

What if you gave your FW carbines? You could zoom in and unload and PIN them!! Then you could load up and run away! > >

Current codex, you may as well throw dougnuts at them :.

The chances of actually pinning are almost nil... and the advantage of rifles is that at close range their firepower is doubled.

Whats the point of running away when you have them pinned? Wouldent you want to stay there and keep unloading into them when they cant return fire?

Yes. Which is why I'd just have the Fire Warriors hop it on foot against armies without masses of Heavy Bolters and/or Assault Cannons.

I would always value inflicting more damage (in this case, DOUBLE damage) than the potential pinning...which isn't very high.

what you want is a FoF squad supported by 1 or 2 6 man carbine squads. This allows the FoF to rapid fire away, after which the carbine squads can use their larger range (24" effective) to force the unit to take pinning tests.

That way you get the best of both worlds, and in the end:

4-7 dead space marines
2 pinning tests (when using 2 6-man carbine squads)
1 Leadership test with -1 at the end of the turn.

Now THATS firepower

What if you had 2 fish? One w/ carbines, and the other with rifles? Then after killing the sqaud (against low leadership armies) by always pinning and shooting the crap out of them, you could assault ANOTHER target. WASH RINSE REPEAT. hehehe >

I don't think he meant assault as in close combat, but assault in the sense of attacking.

Probably shouldn't use the word assault too much round here though, especially out of context!

It will be used a lot with the new Hit And Run rules for Crisis suits, I'll wager :P
