Default 40k armoury and an apocalyptic zombie holocaust

For my first new thread on this board, I will ask you a very important existensial question.

This is the scenario:

Everyone in the area you live somehow get turned into zombies (perhaps Nurgle has something to do with it?). For no particular reason, a magical midget in a bikini gives you a unique chance to select a number of things from any one armoury to any one army in the 40k universe in order to save yourself (and all the people you are able to save, although that probably won't be many, maybe 3-ish). This is what you can choose:

- One veichle with a free selection of upgrades, that if desired could one of its weapon functions swapped with any other weapon from the same armoury, but only if doing so would seem possible.

- Two sets of armour, complete with all the wargear you can fit onto it and a full set of weapons

- All the gadgets, food and survival equipment you can fit into your veichle.

What will you choose?

(In case you didn't get it, all choices have to be from the same armoury.)

Thought of the day: You cannot awaken those who pretend to be asleep.

The Flesh Storm (Khornate Space Wolf renegades/Orks) - 503/1500 pts, work in progress.

You know, that's a trap that way to many walk into. They think zombies = light infantry = easy target. but this IRL, not tabletop.

And as we all know, the only way to kill a zombie is to blow off its head or chest, or tear its lims apart. It says itself that heavy flamers won't be very effective at this...

You see, this is a much deeper issue than it appears at first.

Land raider crucader. Plenty of shots to kill zombies and they can't touch the armour.

Wise choices for both of you. Here's mine:

- Land Raider Crusader, with all upgrades, a dozer blade instead of the front hatch and a (twin-linked?) missile launcher instead of the multi-melta.

- One set of terminator armour, with an assault cannon and eigther a lightning claw or a power sword (what do you guys think would be the most effective?)

- One set of power armour with a jump pack and Iron Halo, with a storm bolter, frag grenades and a power sword.

And tonnes of beef jerky ^^

a drednaught (chaos ) with a chainsword on one arm and either a twinlinked heavy bolter on the other with extra armour...

and when im not in my dred id have terminator armour with a manreaper (gotta love it) and a storm bolter.

it would be a massacre

my other choices would be, a tau crisis battle suit (move faster than a broadside and you need to be quick)

with all the weapons it can carry haha

bassically any armoured suit kinda things... the only tank id get in is a pred or a land raider.

Vehicle: Eldar Falcon, fully upgraded. The Pulse and Scatter Laser effectively have unlimited ammo and the Shuriken Cannon can help out in a pinch. It can fly well above the zombies, and it can hover a mile in the air while I relax in the luxuriously outfitted troop compartment complete with a waterbed and mini-bar.

Actually, I'll swap out the underslung Shuriken Cannon for a twin-linked Starcannon.

Armour Set 1: Tau Crisis Suit with Plasma and Missile Launcher - plenty of range, never needs to get engaged and the Plasma Gun won't overheat and kill me. Might as well add a Drone Controller and a bunch of gundrones too.

Armour Suit 2: Terminator Armour with Assault Cannon, Missile Launcher and Chainfist.

After the orbital strikes, Thunderhawk bombardments, Whirlwinds, Vindicators, fusion and starfire and finally Battle Brothers with flamers had finished cleansing the world of all the enemies of Man, we built a monastery in the center of the largest, most radioactive impact crater. We named the planet "Tranquility", for it was very quiet now. - Brother Vlad Carthas
