My wife was nice enough to pick up a new box of scouts for me on Valentines Day. Does this guy just say Love or what. With the new codex if you are going to be giving a scout sergeant in a close combat squad a powerfist, he should get a shotgun to go with it. Compared to the bolt pistol it has 2 shots for the loss of AP 5. That is more than a fair trade.
This guy will be joining 4 shotgun Scouts in a Storm in my Shrike list. Mainly a harassing unit with the multimelta hitting the transports and the scouts picking off anyone who gets out. If need be they can fly 12, hop out 2. Fire the shotguns then charge in to pull campers away from objectives.
The Shotgun Powerfist scout is a tougher model to get together from kit bashing. Space Marine powerfists look fine on scouts without the big shoulder pad but getting the right shotgun is harder. This one is from the new scout bike kit and is about the only one in the space marine line that can be used to get the right look easily. A holstered shotgun might also work with something else in the free hand.
