Default Help on configuration of my Shas'o

I will mostly be fighting

against Blood Angels, so I was wondering about what the optimum configuration for my

Shas'o should be. I was thinking Fusion Gun and Plasma Rifle with Multi-tracker and

HW Drone Controller. However, I'm thinking of replacing the Fusion Gun with a Missle

Pod since I wouldn't want my valuable commander to be that close to the enemy that

he can use his Fusion Gun. Any Suggestions?

Id say 1 missile pod, 2

plasma rifles and hard wired multitracker - see theres this trick which many dont know

of. With a multitracker you can fire two weapon systems. With that config thats a missile

pod and a twin linked plasma rifle - allowing you to fire 3 weapons! That should help

keep down those pesky blood angels! With that config around 4 should be killed by the

commander a turn!

Deffinently a plasma rifle.

And a missil pod (that ourgh to stop rino rushing Angels). I disagree with

RJay on the twin linked plasma rifles, on the grounds that its a shas'o. But

hey each unto his own. Don't bother with the fusion blaster though. By

the time you get to use it, it would be usless (dam supercharged rhinos)

with a shas'o you've still

got a couple of hard wired systems you can take, so yeah, take some drones as well.

gun drones are okay, but if you're not planning on being that close, then you&#039

;ll be a target for lascannons etc., so you may want to consider shield drones instead -

at least there's a chance they'll survive lasconnon and heavy bolter hits.

Well, the hard-wired upgrades

don't take up a hard point.

True: the

armoury states a limit on number of Hard-wired stuff , and these don't count to the

hard points. Check pages 18 (for rules on the actual stuff) and 20 (for rules on buying

them).

I therefore say Missle Pod, Plasma Rifle, Shield generator, with hard-

wired multi-tracker. DO NOT buy sheild drones if you also get a hard-wired drone

controller: for 5 points, 1 extra wound that is invuleranble and does not add an extra

shot that might pin is not much good.

Commanders can have

three har wired stuff but if the commanders alone (no bodyguard) do not give it drones

cos then any unit can target it as its only an independent character without drones!
