Actually, you can fit three heavy weapons in a normal armored fist squad: the turret weapon on the chimera (usually a multi-laser), the hull mounted weapon on the chimera (either a heavy bolter or a heavy flamer) and the heavy weapon team itself. Plus the six mounted lasguns on the chimera, plus the fact that it can move and shoot it's heavy weapons. You get three squads worth of heavy weapons for a little more than the cost of two squads. So, in the right situation, armored fists can be a godsend.ThunderBolt said:armoured fist squads are shite. theyre no better than normal guardsmen, plus you cant relly have a heavy weapon with them. go with more guardsmen.
This is true, though in this case the firepower of your transport is somewhat wasted. Better off drop-packing some stormies or infiltrating some hardened vets in that case.One word. Meltaguns.
Sneaking up on Land Raiders in much easier if you can move 12".
