EDIT: WE CAN GET A RAZORBACK!

Of course, FFG.pdf: they don't list the cargo capacity and the weapon description implies that it has both twin-linked Lascannons and Heavy bolters.

Ooh, like, an extra Razorback? Or replacing the Rhino? I mean, we gotta do that either way, no way we're turning down a Razorback.

Take one instead of Rhino! It will fit us and our poo poo. Even more if one us has to drive it.

So I have 45ish left. Special sniper rifle, toxic flamer or breaching augur?

I'm taking the Storm Bolter anyways, and Metal storm allowance is still below my Tatical free ammo.

Yeah, I guess you guys can splurge for the Razorback. The Deathwatch would have the full array of weapon choices, so do decide: twin-linked heavy bolter, twin-linked heavy flamer, twin-linked assault cannon, twin-linked lascannon, a Multi-melta, or a combination of a lascannon and a twin-linked plasma gun.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......

Can't go wrong with Twin Linked Assault Cannons? Or what was everyone else thinking? Do we want the Twin Lascannon Anti-Armor punch? Heavy Bolter spray and pray? There's... kinda no wrong answer, I suppose?

I think it's my end-list. Kinda strange, but demo has utilitarian and defensive usesI'm an idiot, Kraken is 15as per FAQ, mines definitely have defensive uses, and the breaching augur is for when I run out of demo charge/someone gets past blending crew/I want to melee a deathdread.

I don't think I should be able to carry all of that stuff around, though, weight limits or not.

By the way, have we been counting DoS right? Judging from the examples in the rulebook, you only get one for every full 10, and you don't get an automatic DoS for success - or am I confusing this with Dark Heresy?

Similarly, Standard attacks don't give us +10 BS/WS

I guess I'm just going to grab a Charm, and then save the rest for calling in support during the mission.

I think the most important question is "Who gets to use their magboots to surf into battle atop the Razorback?"

Well, that's part of why you got a vehicle, to carry extra gear around.

In other news, I just finished essentially GMing a larp-y event where the gaming space necessitated lots of running up and down sets of stairs! Boy did those eleven hours just fly by. I'm gonna go fall into a coma, see y'all tomorrow morning.

Okay, I took Divination, to help track down the Warsmith, I took Hatred (Traitor Legions) and Forbidden Lore (Traitor Legions)+20 for ridiculously cheap from the Imperial Fists advances, and then a little boost to Willpower and Weapon Skill. I have added the Warsmith to the Book of Grudges.

I upped my Weapon Skill once and Strength twice. Ain't gonna lose against that Alpharius punk again (now effective WS 75, 1d10+22 Pen 7 against him with my Power Axe, WS 85 Parry with the off-hand Sword, even better against Xenos threats).

Also got Heat Resistance, because I had 300xp left over before hitting second level, and it was one of the only things that cost exactly that much. I also exploded a Heavy Flamer in my face, so, that too.

Next session, this Sunday at the usual time! I'll compose a bigger briefing when a giant thunderstorm isn't cutting off my power every fifteen minutes, but short version is you're going to a major shrine world undercover. Probably still as Space Marines, just not Deathwatch. It'll make sense.

And if bastion wants to make a divination check going in, just post a roll and I'll show you some cards.

Alas it looks like this weekend I'm out of town for a family wedding (that's what I get for having like 30 cousins...), so I won't be around to play Brother Tychon. I'm totally cool with Tychon being there and piloted by another party member; just stay quiet, and when in doubt assume he hits Heresy with a power sword.
