Default Terminator Librarian weapon?

Ok, well, I have been thinking about what weapon to epuip my Termi Librarian, and was thinking... The Storm BOlter is the obvious solution as its 2 S4 shots instead of just the one if I equiped the libby with a combi plasma, but then again i thought what about the fun you could have? . But I think the logical thing is to use the storm bolter...

Opinions...

But if you spend much time in rapid fire range then a combi-bolter gives you two shots as well. I'd take some kind of combi weapon, maybe a melta.

Also which chapter is this for?

Ultramarines, and I'm going by the weapons in the Termi Librarian blister. The other Librarian I bought is going to have a Plasma pistol, and 1 will be in a command squad and the other a terminator command squad . So, thats why I thought storm bolter for the terminator libby

I'd stick with the SB. What powers are you giving him? Also any extra wargear?

I'd give him a pistol, if only for the extra attack once you reach the assult phase. But then, I run an assult heavy army, so pick your weapon based on the rest of your list.

Good luck

I gave mine a SB and its working out nicely. It makes sense too, since libbies are very great assaulters if equipped with the right powers.

I'd base the armament on what the witch is able to do with his "gift." If he's able to use powers which boost his close combat abilities or give him re-rolls, you might as well give him a decent gun for the walk in. There's no harm in giving him one anyway, since it's awfully hard to be double-armed in Terminator armour, but you'll find you use it more often if you're not able to have the witch manifest something like Storm of the Emperor's Wrath or Vortex of Doom.

Either way, a combi-flamer isn't a bad call if you're unsure what to give him. A combi-melta could work too, as long as you don't get fixated on the melta being an anti-armour weapon and forget why the Librarian is on the table to begin with.

storm bolter would be the obvious choice but combi flamers could be fun


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Combi-weapons are bad on a Librarian. You'll wan't to go after big things with him and his Force Weapon. And the only way you'll be able to get some good shots out with a Combi- is to Rapid Fire. Of course you could go with the Flamer, but when was the last time you wounded a Daemon Prince with a Flamer? Plus, you can only fire the Flamer/Plasma Gun(Rapid Fire)/Meltagun once, and that won't really be enough in most games. Then the Bolter is also Rapid Fire. Bad. See my point? You can't Assault when you Rapid Fire a weapon. And so the Storm Bolter is the only good choice.

I'm not too sure on powers, as i doubt i will be playing much until the new codex... But I am gonna go with the storm bolter cause 2 shots and a charge just seems silly that i will only use the plasma once in the game, rather than whenever you feel like, i might just wait for the codex to come out and paint both up, or buy a hobby drill and make them interchangable.
