For my first new thread on this board, I will ask you a very important existensial question.

This is the scenario:

Everyone in the area you live somehow get turned into zombies (perhaps Nurgle has something to do with it?). For no particular reason, a magical midget in a bikini gives you a unique chance to select a number of things from any one armoury to any one army in the 40k universe in order to save yourself (and all the people you are able to save, although that probably won't be many, maybe 3-ish). This is what you can choose:

- One veichle with a free selection of upgrades, that if desired could one of its weapon functions swapped with any other weapon from the same armoury, but only if doing so would seem possible.

- Two sets of armour, complete with all the wargear you can fit onto it and a full set of weapons

- All the gadgets, food and survival equipment you can fit into your veichle.

What will you choose?

(In case you didn't get it, all choices have to be from the same armoury.)

You know, that's a trap that way to many walk into. They think zombies = light infantry = easy target. but this IRL, not tabletop.

And as we all know, the only way to kill a zombie is to blow off its head or chest, or tear its lims apart. It says itself that heavy flamers won't be very effective at this...

You see, this is a much deeper issue than it appears at first.:p

Land raider crucader. Plenty of shots to kill zombies and they can't touch the armour.:grin:
Wise choices for both of you. Here's mine:

- Land Raider Crusader, with all upgrades, a dozer blade instead of the front hatch and a (twin-linked?) missile launcher instead of the multi-melta.

- One set of terminator armour, with an assault cannon and eigther a lightning claw or a power sword (what do you guys think would be the most effective?)

- One set of power armour with a jump pack and Iron Halo, with a storm bolter, frag grenades and a power sword.

And tonnes of beef jerky ^^

Vehicle: Eldar Falcon, fully upgraded. The Pulse and Scatter Laser effectively have unlimited ammo and the Shuriken Cannon can help out in a pinch. It can fly well above the zombies, and it can hover a mile in the air while I relax in the luxuriously outfitted troop compartment complete with a waterbed and mini-bar.

Actually, I'll swap out the underslung Shuriken Cannon for a twin-linked Starcannon.

Armour Set 1: Tau Crisis Suit with Plasma and Missile Launcher - plenty of range, never needs to get engaged and the Plasma Gun won't overheat and kill me. Might as well add a Drone Controller and a bunch of gundrones too.

Armour Suit 2: Terminator Armour with Assault Cannon, Missile Launcher and Chainfist.

Vehicle: Razorback with TL Heavy Bolter. (Gotta transport those you save)

Armor 1: Artificer Armor with Power Sword and Bolt Pistol, Frags and Kraks

Armor 2: Speedo with toothpick (if the midget in the bikini is hot)

Monolith
living metal armour they can never touch.
Gauss flux arc wpn-- lots of units in my 12" range. or simply particle whip them as I will surely get quite a few no matter where it scatters.
I'll have to find a way to mount a twin-linked pintle mounted assault cannon to it.
I'll be sitting in my homeade command module inside. can watch my results on cnn.
Room for plenty of cold bud,pizza and a squad of sisters of battle in my enourmous,ponderous vehicle.

Regarding your suplies:

a) wouldn't it turn a little mouldy after a while?

b) How are you gonna coock 'em?

And also, I don't think that the thunder hammer would be very effective agaisnt a near-infinate mass of undead, as blunt weapons can deliver deadly blows, but can only do so to one enemy at the time. And as zombies are incredibly weak, you won't need that power. And hence, a slashing weapon would be better.

The question is just, what would be the best agaisnt the zombies - a lightning claw or a power sword?

I would cook the pizza on the preds engine and I imagine thunder hammers to be simmilar to grav hammers from halo 3. And imo lightning calws beacuse they would feel like an extention to your body and would look cool when fighting.
