I personally like the coffee-man's idea with psyassrifle. Although to be honest, in the games i have used the psyrifleman he has performed very well.

I have to agree with Shas'O that versitility is nice, I am still fairly new to 40k but if your facing a horde type army 4 shot is not as nice as having the ability to drop pie plates(templates) no the vibe i get from him is not that he is making a more TACTICAL build for the GK dreadnaught but that he is showing a more VERISTILE dreadnaught and I for one say versatility beats all.

Now that being said this "Psyfleman" is good anit-tank ok fine get that point but is that really the only competitive build for it? If so thats very said I joined 40k for the options on building different armies and finding out different play styles. Besides if the "Psyfleman" is the only good build they wouldn't have giving the codex more options of what to equip it with. And no offense Coke but at least Shas'O came out with numbers and he even made the numbers favor missing more then hitting and still showed a improvement in the % of deaths in infantry which was his starting point to make the dreadnaught more VERSITILE!



So I am growing my enemy.....so what I gotta kill something.

Warhammer is a game of versatility of tactics, not of the units.

an hybrid rifleman would be low at doing what you used the dred that is to hunt vehicles, so is better to play more competitive lots of times.

It's not a pie plate tho, its a 3" blast, which has the ability to scatter.

Reliably, rerolled BS4 RoF 2 weapons will hit more units over the course of any given game. If we were talking a 5" that ignored cover, you'd have a good case.

But thats not what the PC does.

The psyfleman is the best build point for point, pound for pound for GK.

I don't want versatility. I want it to do it's god-damn job and skullfuck tanks that look at me funny up to 48" away.

Also if you're having problems with infantry(Namely orks, ig, gaunts), just use two combat squads of purifiers.
Let's say 30 gaunts charge them. Deary me that is quite a few!
Roll two psychic tests. Wound thirty gaunts. Five survive to roll attacks and then get swept up. Easy.

Question!

Whats wrong with using the missle luancher? Same cost; Strength of 9 (With psy-ammo) and 2 shots at the same range. Ya its not TL but its a strong as a lascannon and has an ap of 3. Meaning it coould deal with MEq.

Or you could even go with a missle luancher and the multi melta. If you can get that dread close enough. Bye bye anything.... mm with Strength of 9 ho!

After reading this thread you guys are simply going in circles and not looking out side the box.

That might have something to do with psybolt ammo not effecting missile launchers or multi-meltas.
