Captain for Inceptors detachment

Postby Ukromarine » Tue Oct 08, 2019 11:19 am

I want to create a fast attack detachment consisting of 3 inceptor squads (2 regular + 1 plasma) and want to include a captain with jump pack to lead them and help with rolls of one for plasma. What is the best loadout will be for the captain in this case? I'm considering storm bolter and power fist. Running as ultramarines

From what I've seen, the majority of people run Thunder Hammers instead of power fists. While more points for the thunder hammer, the flat 3 damage is key. You do have other relics to look it for different options on your characters. Teeth of Terra and maybe Burning Blade could be interesting. The Imperium's Sword warlord trait is definitely a must for slam-captains.

Got it. So TH and Shield or power sword and shield would be best options?

Ironically enough, no, TH and shield or Chainsword and Shield, so that you can take the Teeth of Terra relic is best. You can also take The Shield Eternal if you want to though for more durability (which you should definitely do if you take the Thunder Hammer).
