Default Crisis suits.

XV8s, Crisis suits. What do you arm them with?

What do you use them for? What do you like about them? What do you hate about

them?

I thought we already had a thread like this, but oh well

Battle suit #1- 2 missile pods, multi tracker and a hard wired black sun

filter

Battle suit #2- 2 missile pods, multi tracker and a hard wired black

sun filter

Battle suit #3- 2 missile pods, multi tracker and a hard wired

black sun filter

Battle suit #4- 2 Plasma Rifles, Sheild generator and a hard

wired mutitracker

Battle suit #5- 2 Fusion Blasters. Sheild generator and a

hard wired mutitracker


As for why I like the battle suits, they pack a

heavy punch and their very mobile.

Thats good info Del the spoonstabbing.

But the idea maybe for others to comment here to get this forums up and talking and

going on.

I have a few different armies with ideas to suit each armies ideas

or fluff.

I have atleast a squad with bursts and a Squad with Missiles to

handle Rhinos and light armor stuff.

I was actual triing to go with this.

Flamers and Burst to get in and roast some bugs or Imperial guards but they will probable

just die in hth. because they will get to close.

I have a command squad with

plasmas and thats it really I dont like to use alot of Plasmas so not to be cheesy and a

Marine Killer only army.
If you know what I mean?

I like the ability to

get around quick and survive a little longer than most things.

They remind me

of the Tyranids Warriors only as Robots.
Same roll and use.

Thats my

comments for now.

I can't remember the answer for this, I

haven't played in awhile.

If a Crisis Suit has a hard-wired multitracker

can he shoot a twin-linked weapon and another weapon?

We have had games around here durin RT's

that people judged a Tau player very low because he took more than 3 plasma weapons.
The guys had thre elite choices all crisis suits had plasmas.
And then he had a

heavy support with 3 braodsides with plasmas.
He won almost every one of his gmaes

and did not win because everyone graded him so low for having all the plasmas.

Anyone else see this as a problem.
I wount take hardly any of them because this is

where I game.
So its my commander and bodyguard with plasmas and thats it.
For

fear of smelling like cheese. Or growing a "Beardy".

I just try to

get the job done with missiles and alot of strength 5 shots from fire warriors.

What a noob, then what kind of noob

lost to him? The sole goal of that army sounds like to waste space marines. The ap

2 on the plasma rifles kill the troops and the railguns kill tanks. But how could ocks,

eldar, dark eldar and tau lose to it? The orcs would out mass him, the eldar could use

jet bikes and/or weapon platform, the dark eldar can run up and rush him and another tau

army would just smoke him with long range Missile launchers

Well I think you hit the nail on the head.
The Rtts around here are all Marines. Serious.
Oh they all play different chapters

and Chaos marines but they all play marines.

Even I with my buddies had to get

Tyranids because it was getting boring back in the day.
And I was really glad when

Tau came along.

Serious out of 15 players at th last RTT they where all

Marines except 1 Tau player.\
Oh and he was Cheesy for bringing Plasmas to fight

Marines? Is this wrong?

The codex says you can buy it but if you do people who

you might beat will call you cheesy?
What the heck?
So 14 Marine players

complained and scored him low but I believe he won every game and ended up third. Oh and

his Tau is painted great. Better than my stuff. Well maybe not my new army I ma doing

this time? ;D

And the guy is not new at all.
He saw what signed up

and brought an army to defeat them like any good general would.

So I am kinda

confused over this?

Oh well. What can you do.
Oh by the way the Tau

player wrote a letter to gW and the hobby shop and will not come in ever again he said

and everyone laughed at his poor sportsmanship?

I'd say if he brought units specifically to take

plasma rifles then it was cheesy. If he equipped the units that he already had with

plasma rifles, OK. But this would never have happened if there was a bit of variation in

the opposing army's.
