Default What to put in your vendettas?!?!?

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.

Here's one varient of how I build my Platoons -

INFANTRY PLATOON:
PCS 105
Lieutenant w/ CCW, Las Pistol
4 w/ Flamers
Chimera w/ ML, HF

Combined Infantry (c/c) Squads (3 @ 67 ea) 201
Sgt w/ PW, BP, MBís
9 w/ Lasguns

INFANTRY PLATOON:
PCS 70
Lieutenant w/ CCW, Las Pistol
4 w/ Meltaguns

Combined Infantry (Gun-line) Squads (3 @ 75) 260
Sgt w/ CCW, Las Pistol
1 w/ Plasma Guns
6 w/ Lasguns
HWT w/ AC
Commissar w/ CCW, BP

In this particular list my Lord Commissar joins the 'cc blob' to grant them a
1+ Cover Save, plus his PW helps of course.

Also depending on what army I'm facing the Chimera gets swapped over to the other PCS, and that one goes in the Vendetta.

If you're having good results by taking Infantry Squads in your Vendettas.. then cool, that's the best reason to do anything really.
