Guardian heavy weapons

Hello all,

I have recantly had a disscussion/argument with a Gw staff member about Guardian heavy weapon platforms, i think they are good and add a much needed boost in fire power to the squads but this guy in Gw said the complete oppopsite.

I quote "they rubbish and to expensive for what they do, they cant even embark in Wave serpants". Is he wrong? or do some of you budding players out there agree? I on the other hand do not think they are to expensive and with the option to embark transports along with the squad, i think they make for great objective sitters.

Your oppinions if you please.

Bleah. They're crap, although as others have pointed out they can embark. I wouldn't field them. They need, quite frankly, the option of taking more than one in the squad or a support weapon or two. I mean, the "suppress things until kingdom come with Vibrocannons" trick would actually be worth something if they took a troops slot and were scoring. Two of them means you roll to hit twice and get a "full" hit 75% of the time, ignoring non-area cover terrain is almost cool... they could be an alternative to rangers as objective campers.
See, I almost put a snarky comment saying that I knew you were going to reply with roughly that comment, but I'm trying to cut down on longwindedness.

I still think they suck, and I still wouldn't field them. I also wouldn't bet on myself if I was facing you and your list consisted wet paper bags, however.
