The combat shotgun look having a pretty small range.
Compare to classic shotgun, the salvo ammo is a little more intersting than solid ammo but 12" is pretty short.
The template can be interesting but all this really worth 30c more?
For cheap, you get a ling range bolter, with ap 1 and rapid...
Yes i can do it, remive some smoke grenade and downgrading other strenght ganger.
I get one champion with pistol and cheap ccw.
Did the difference really worth it?
The basics stat are similars and i like the idea of a strong leader and a bulky friend, follow by grunts :)!
I will start a campaign with HoC goliath. New in the game i read few guide an tread and start building a list.
I think about:
Leader : with plasma/stud and butcher cleaver (205)
Forge lord with grenade launcher (160)
Stimmer with paired spud (155)
Bruiser with grenade launcher...
