So, you're in the middle of a zombie apocalypse...

What three 40k-related items would you take? Assuming you live where you do now.

Rules:
  1. If you take a vehicle, it cannot be larger than a standard battle tank or transport (so no Land Raiders/Super Heavies)
  2. You must be able to feasably use the equipment you take (assume that things like Tau battlesuits are human-compatible, but obviously Space Marine Power Armour isn't because nobody is big enough to fit in it) - things like Astartes Heavy Bolters would also be too hard to lug around, probably even with Power Armour
  3. Ammunition and power sources for weapons/armour aren't a problem
  4. STCs and similar things are a big, fat NO

I would probably take a complete suit of Power Armour (not an Astartes pattern, obviously), a Bolt pistol (or Shuriken pistol) and a Chainsword. Pretty standard, useful for fending off zombies and protecting myself from aggressive survivors. Only issue is that there aren't many shots in a Bolt pistol magazine.

Power Sword'd be pretty cool, I reckon. Despite the risk of it backfiring, Plasma Pistols look nice as well. Not sure on the third option, probably some decent armour.

3 of anything this time eh; Its usually 'What weapon/s' or something along those lines.
Ah well. My choices would be as follows:

1. Sororitas Pattern Power Armor.
2. Rosarius.
3. Godwyn Deaz Pattern Combi Plasma w/Crate of Ammo.

Wow your fighting zombies people, not orks. Why don't you just mow your lawn with a nuke while your at it.

In that chain of thought I would take the following.

Land speeder tempest (Set it to hover, and I can camp the night in the thing between searching for resources and the wouldn't be a damn thing zombies could do to get me).

Cut proof carapace armor. (Their would have to be a lot of them to actually get me since their is vary little 2-3 could do to actually cripple kill me with that kinda armor on)

If ammo really wasn't a issue (Realistically most humans could only carry 40 bolter rounds on them, and only 2-3 clips) I would say bolter, however taking into account logistics like unwieldiness, weight noise generation I would take......1 Hell gun, and two laz pistols (Not getting anywhere close to those buggers).

In summations I would take.
Land speeder tempest (Recon, and evasion, and close crew compartment)
-Carapace armor
-Hell, gun and dual laz pistols (Light weightish, no real reload, and unlimited ammo)


Medusa: "I'm a witch, its my job to blaspheme against Gods."

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

I would take...
- A razorback, I would eventually turn it into some sort of motorhome so i can just park up and sleep at night time.

- Chainaxe, why not?

- two laspistols, I always seem to think they are a bit feeble so two should do it.
