Spam? Lunch for later? Ork corpses? What unit Do people think does the best in a vendetta. Personally I use an infantry squad with a melts. Good for last second point taking and Not totally helpless at popping a vehicle or taking out small units.
I've heard pcs with flamers is a good choice too. What's everyone's thoughts?
I prefer to use my Vendetta as a gunship first and foremost, and as a transport second, so I out in units that are built for late game use...
- PCS with 4 Flamers
- SWS with a mix of Flamers/Demo Charge
Vets are popular of course, but 9 times out of 10 you will lose both the Vendetta and the Vets within a turn of each other, simply because you're presenting a massive target within range of the majority of the enemy's firepower....hopefully the target is worth it.
My only issue with the pcs is how well can you utilize the flamers from a vendetta. Wouldn't you get a better use out of them from a chim? Same goes for a sws.
I totally agree on the PCS in a Chimera...I do that as well. It comes down to if I have the points left to give the PCS a Chimera, because I also have my CCS/Vets/PBS in Chimeras so points can be sparse, plus it's more important to have those 3 Units in Chimeras than it is a PCS, which works if it's on foot, in a Chimera or Vendetta.
I agree with your comment about the Vendetta having no fire points, so it's not an ideal transport for any unit that has multiple SW's imo...which is another of my main reasons for not putting Vets in them (Vets suit Chimeras almost perfectly imo).
That said, my PCS's on the other hand are built for late-game Objective taking so are well-suited to disembark and fire....plus I don't consider them on the same tier as Vets so I'm not as hardline about them, so it's ok sticking them in Vendettas.
SWS I simply don't have enough Chimeras to go round, so they're stuck with Vendettas I'm afraid.
