Default Crisis Suit Config?

I just want to know as I am getting the 145 boxed set today (yes a couple of days early) from an IR I want to know what is the best all around Crisis config? Cause I do not want to make the same mistake this time around and have a [] config.

What he means is, don't glue on the Crisis Suit weapons. That way, you can just press them into place (they fit snugly when painted) when you need them. Then you can also swap configs etc between different army lists.

For the crisis suit configs themselves, see Important Topics. In the middle of the 'Tactics Threads' section, there are four XV8 related threads. They have all you need in regards to XV8 configs.

lol

the best for configs would be to look at other ppl's army lists and see what they tend to use. You could also, again by studying army lists, make configs best suited for the main oponents you fight against.

It is still recomended to leave the weapons unglued

Yeah I did knew what he meant. But thanx for telling me about the XV8 threads. I can not belive I did not know about them. That teaches me to use the search function. Oh and I have got my boxed set and codex now. And it is good.

Intersting config I must say. I do not see many people on these forums that favour the burst cannon and plasma rifle combo.

If facing a horde army, I'd go for Missile pod and Burst cannon, it provides the most shots in comparison to others. Or maybe Shield generator, flamer and plasma rifle. The reason for the SG instead of a multi-tracker, is that you have to get close and it provides protection.
