Ok, so Im planning to create three Great of Mega (not sure yet) Gargants to wreck havoc against the Imperium. Each Gargant will be specialised, so one would be anti-Titan, the other one anti-infantry and the other one anti-vehicle. Im still a noob when it comes to Epic rules and tactics, but could anybody advice me on how I should arm each one of those Gargants?

Well the Anti-Infantry one should probably focus on BP and take 3 Soopaguns (6 BP). This would also work well for Anti-Armor, just not as effective as vs infantry. For the anti-Titan make sure to take the Suppa-Zzap-Gun.

Edit: I was confused thought you were talking about 3 normal Gargants.

I tried looking around the Specialist Games website articles for the rules for the Mega Gargant, I found some, including the weapons it has here (http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/EpicOGBM2.pdf) (last page), however does this mean that the Mega Gargant's weapons are also possible to be changed, so that you could have these specialized Mega Gargants?

The OGBM is a bit of a semi-official specialised fan list - if your opponent hasn't tooled up to kill Gargants he's going to have a pretty miserable game.

Furthermore, there is no points listed for the Mega-Gargant, so you take them in friendly games only, they probably are better suited to special scenarios rather than a standard game.

Given that they are for friendly games only, you can make them however you wish - there is no need for you to stick with the weapons in the list. Pick whatever weapons seem right! In "standard" games count the model as a standard Great Gargant.

IIRC people have found that 1300pts is about right for the Mega Gargant.

How many weapons does the Mega Gargant have? IIRC they were about 9 right? So I just pick 9 from the list? By the way, the army will only consist of 3 Mega Gargants, well...maybe two, or three Great Gargants. Meaning there will be no other support, infantry, vehicles and so on. Its just these Gargants. Could be fun for friendly Imperium bashing right? :evilgrin:

BTW, does anybody have specific pictures of the weapons? Sure there are tons of pictures of Gargants out there, but I dont know which weapon is which. :(
