So the other dayI was playing a casual game of Necrons and Vanilla Space Marines. My opponent had only been playing a few months and was pretty good tbh. He was very nice and smart, knowing the rulebook very well for his age. It was only a 1000 point game. I brought my usual 1000 point list, but toned it down a bit. In the list was a Doomscythe. Now he had a Stormtalon so it wasnt unfair of course. My flyer came on turn 2 and positioned itself and fired its Death Ray. The line cut through killing 3 terminators, 4 tac marines and a rhino. His eyes were very wide needless to say. Naturally i showed him the rule. He read it. He wasnot surprised and started to ask if that was the strongest weapon in the game. I laughed and said it wasnt. He then asked well, what is?
The game was good fun. He managed to slay my warlord and kill some warrior. His stormtalon and devastators killed my doomscythe turn 3. I apologized for any hard feelings and he just laughed saying maybe he should do some more reading and promised me a rematch.
The aftermath left me wondering just what is the beat gun in WH40K?
So stay alert as I will have the amswer to this question very soon.
Until then. What do you think?
