Dreadnoughts With Autocannons. Space Marines Behaving Badly?
For the Army Cook-Off 2011, as you may have heard, I am building the Mantis Legion, and it is going to be in the Tranquility scheme. I am trying to portray a boarding team with Scouts, Terminators, and Dreads. The Dreads are going to be the bulk of my anti-tank firepower, and I am strongly considering making them Rifleman Dreads. For the two of you who know less about 40k than I do, this is slang for two twin linked autocanons.
For the rest of you, who know more, is this a solid idea? Throw it out, outfit the Dreads some other way? What are some pros and cons of the different types of Dreads? I'll admit, I love the idea of an Ironclad, but don't know if it is worth the points difference. That sort of thing.
