Death Company WIP: Bolters Incoming

I do have a certain love for the Death Company. As the 6th edition Rage rules are golden, I have felt free to indulge myself a bit.

These five Death Company Marines with Holy Bolters are my most recent project. I am working on their bases now. They are magnetized to take either the jump pack or the backpack. I look forward to adding their Relentless, Rapid Fire skills to my DC.

Do you have any experience with Boltgun toting Death Company?

In 5th ed, I used my DC with Power Fists and Bolters, they worked OK... Now with 6th, I find that a Power Axe does almost as much as the Fist, so they hit the field less often... Not bad, but I usually want them in HtH, and have had bad experiences sometimes shooting myself out of a charge :-) Fun though, and not bad altogether now that they do not HAVE to go rushing forward...

You raise some interesting points for consideration. My other five are 2 CCW and Pistols, 2 Power Swords, and a Powerfist.

6th Edition has opened up new possibilities, and that makes me happy. I haven't considered shooting myself out of a charge with the bolters. I'll let you know how that goes.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for commenting.
