Default Imperial Sentinel Loadout

I got a sentinel for Christmas. Before I make it, does anyone have experience with the two different types, and the five different weapons?

I'm a big fan of Armoured Sentinels with Plasma Cannons. My buddy uses these and they are a pain to take down when benefiting from Cover.

I think the most efficient way to run them though is Armoured with Autocannons, to lay down alot of fire for cheap.

You know, I never go armoured sentinels. I enjoy the scout rule too much. Plus I tend to just want a lascannon or the multilaser on them. Of course, if you are making a balance list, my thoughts change quickly.

Although I don't play IG, I'm a big fan of outflanking sentinals with autocannons fir shooting tanks in the back or flamers for objective clearing. Armoured ones seem a little expensive and so do lascannons because you're paying alot of points to give a bs 3 model a 1 shot gun.

Persoinly i think your should have eaither a Scout with Multi-laser or Heavy flamer (if your catachan) or an amroured one with Autocannons or Plasma cannon (unless your Catachan) Fluff wise i just can't see armoured sentiels being used in a Catachan army

Armoured sentinels with either an autocannon or multilaser - keep them cheap and charge into CC units ill equipped to deal with AV12 walkers.

Or scout sentinel with autocannon and optional hunter-killer missiles for side/rear armour shots on tanks.
