I find the sentinels to be the best looking in the Games Workshop range of imperial guard vehicles. But are they useful? Yesterday I made a comparison to my ork deffkopta. Not really a vehicle but also a fast choice. Think it's absurd that you get them at the same cost. Deffkoptas hit roughly as well and as hard at the same points (twinlinked rokkit against sentinel with ML), they are real T5 now with 2W which makes them unstoppable with a las cannon hit. And they are fast as lightning compared to sentinels, not to mention jinx save,hit and run, hammer of wrath and the possibility to upgrade for first turn power klaw assault.
Yeah, I know jet bikes seem to be the big winner in 6th, but what's the deal with walkers then? As IG can't field any kind of bikes. What are your impressions? I can't se that they have really gained anything from the rules update. It would be that they are more resilient to assault than other vehicles. But as sentinels have lower ws than most assault troops they will be hit a lot anyway. In fith their thing was that they could move and fire a lot of weapons if I remember correctly. Today all vehicles can move and fire more weapons. My sentinels only carry one weapon anyway. So why should you field walkers these days?
