Six Hell Blades or 2 Maurader Destroyers
so I got a copy of Imperial Armour Apocalypse. Initially I got it for the stats on the Hell Blade chaos flyer because I wanted to include a flight of six of them. My intention was to utilize them as a sort of flanking force to harass infantry groups and light vehicles while my heavier hitting units pound on my opponents forward units. But IAA also has the datasheet for the Marauder Destroyer. 3 Twin linked Auto-cannons, 8 bombs/missiles, a Twin linked assault cannon and a Twin Linked heavy bolter to boot. I don't know a single unit in the game shy of Super-heavy classifications that can ignore that short of harrasment.
Ultimately I would like to field a flight of 2 Mauraders escorted by a flight of 6 Hell Blades for a combined total of 24 Reaper Autocannon shots with 12 Auto-cannon shots, plus 8 Assault cannon shots and 6 Heavy bolter shots all of which get re-rolls thanks to Twin-linked goodness.
I am well aware that neither Marauders nor Hell Blades are particularly good Tank hunters, though the Autocannon and Reaper variant are nothing to sneeze at when you're a tank.
So here's my question, which one would you be more worried to see facing you down from across the board:
1) A flight of 6 Hell Blades
2) A flight of 2 Marauder Destroyers?
