Rangers vs Vanguard (8th Edition)
« on: September 30, 2017, 10:53:47 AM »
New edition, time for a new Rangers vs Vanguard debate! Yay!

I just started collecting AdMech a short while ago, and was wondering what everyone's thoughts on the basic Skitarii soldier was.

I'm looking forward to using Rangers as basically a point defense unit, getting them into cover and just wrecking enemy characters with the Arquebusiers. A 60", S7 AP -2 Dam D3 sniper rifle? Yes, please. It might even be the best sniper in the game that isn't a character.

As for Vanguards, their strength seems to be mobility. Assault 3 main weapons, bolstered by some Assault 2 plasma calivers, seems like what you want is for Vanguards to Advance all over the place, claiming objectives and exploiting weaknesses in the enemy.

I have found the rangers sniper does less than other snipers against characters as many have invulnerable saves. I have found however that they do a fair bite out of t7 vehicles :).
