Favorite Biker Command Squad Load Outs

Post by BDS » Mon Jan 05, 2015 5:09 am

Thought I would tap the community at large for their favorite command squad load outs....I am planning on adding this unit to my Iron Hawks. I then succumbed to "paralysis by analysis" on the nigh infinite number wargear combinations for these guys.

This was my initial thought:

5 Command squad bikers

1: Storm Shield "designated red shirt"
2: Grav gun, Storm Shield, melta bomb
3: Grav gun, Storm Shield
4: Grav gun, melta bomb
5: Storm Shield, Thunder Hammer

What are favorite load outs of other players?

Thanks,

BDS

Iirc the stormshield does not replace a weapon, so you could move one of the grav guns onto the thunder hammer dude and upgrade the other guy to an apothecary.

Definitely add an apothecary, the feel no pain roll will keep that group intact a lot longer.

My current command squad load out contains 2 gravguns, 2 bolt pistols (bubble wrap for the grav), and an apothecary. I also run a librarian with the group equipped with either a shield eternal or armor indomitus plus the telepathy discipline.

Thanks for the insight. Here is a rework on bike command squad:
1. Apothecary
2. Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield, Grav gun
3. Storm Shield, Grav Gun
4. Storm Shield, Grav Gun, melta bomb
5. Melta bomb

Debating just putting a Grav gun...or melta gun on #5....but feel like there should be a 'red shirt' in the squad....

Will have to reread the codex entry...but if the Apothecary can take a melta bomb, would put one there.

Thanks,
