Need some advice here... we're now assembling a second pack of SW terminators with the intention of deploying them in a drop pod behind enemy lines. These will be assault orientated. The current make-up is as follows:

1x WG Terminator with Heavy Flamer and Chainfist
2x WG Terminator with Wolf Claw and Storm Shield
2x WG Terminator with Thunderhammer and Storm Shield

The dilemma I'm now having is that looking at the potential damage between the Thunderhammer & the Chainfist, both are 15pts to purchase, Sx2, AP2, Specialist Weapon and Unwieldy. However, the Thunderhammer has Concussive while the Chainfist has Armourbane. I'm just not sure if having an extra armour pen D6 roll on the CF is better over reducing initiatives with the TH strikes.

What is your take on this?

If it comes down to a choice between Armourbane and Concussive I think you'll find that Armourbane will be useful more often than Concussive.

Concussive only works if the target takes a wound and survives. How often will that happen?

Armourbane gives you that extra bit you need to make sure you pen the tank and you get it with every hit.

I suspected so... Thanks for the confirmation. Will have to go look for two right-handed Termi Chainfist now!

In other words, unless you play against a lot of daemons or a lot of Tyranids concussive isn't worth it.

Thanks for this advice. Will keep this in mind when I next face Daemons or Nids.
