Hello everyone so at my local store in about a month we will be doing a competition of just start collecting boxes. I am not sure of the points limit we are using, I would imagine no higher than 500 but will report back as soon as possible when I find out.
Continuing on however I look at the start collecting box for tempestus and am always questioning who do I give what upgrade? what weapons do I give the scions,? should the command squad take a medpack or another special weapon? same goes for the vox caster, vox caster or another special weapon?
From what I have been thinking lately though to go for a plasma build with everything, giving the scions two plasma guns, a vox caster, and suicide them into the enemy as they can just come back next turn and have the Taurox nearby with an Augur Relay. Then give the command squad a vox caster, 3 plasma guns and a plasma pistol on the tempestor prime, having these guys stay back and back up the scions with the Taurox. Then the Commisar maybe make him a lord Commisar still debating on that, but will definitely go for a plasma pistol on him for this build. Lastly the Taurox, I have almost no idea how to outfit this but I was definitely thinking of relic plating to deal with the psykers in other boxes.
The problem I am having however is should I use all of that plasma or use something like Hot-Shot Volley guns instead? Am I using too much plasma? Are my tactics flawed? However I was also thinking well with this much plasma and being able to give squads preferred enemy I should have a good fighting chance against the enemy.
