The Jungle Top Ten: Bargain Wargear  by Patrick Eibel
How often have you been making an army list and been left with 5 points?  I thought it would be interesting to create a list of the best pieces of wargear that can be had for 5 points or less.  There are items from just about every army, so take a look and see how yours fared.

10. Disruption Fields. The ability to take a squad of Scarabs that can neutralize a vehicle (even via a glancing hit) can keep your Monolith around for one more turn.

9. Trophy Racks. With the new rules for close combat, anything that increases Leadership is quite useful.

8. Havoc Launchers for Defilers. A Strength 5, AP 5 blast weapon you can add to your Spikey Crab o' Death for 5 points? Sign me up.

7. Stikkbomb Chukka. Rather than give each of your Orks stikkbombs at 1 point each, take a chukka for 5 points and cover the whole squad on the charge.

6. Meltabombs. This fairly ubiquitous wargear item makes it so just about any squad leader can take out a tank.  Not bad for 20 points less than a power fist.

5. Bonding Knife. Anything to help you regroup after losing an assault is crucial, especially if you are Tau.

4. Spirit Stones for War Walkers. To prove Eldar have better technology, they get extra armor for 10 points less than Marines.

3. Feeder Tendrils. Conferring Preferred Enemy to nearby squads for 3 points? Yes, please (note: could possibly change with the new Tyranid Codex coming out in January 2010).

2. Disruption Pods. Want to obscure your vehicle? Take your cover with you.  Better than the ubiquitous smoke launcher because you do not sacrifice shooting.

1. Book of St. Lucius. Why worry about penalties to your Leadership after close combat? Take the Book and roll those Leadership tests straight up, homey!

They may not have a new codex, but the Sisters have the best piece of wargear you can get for 5 points.  Next time you play any of these armies, see how often these items appear in your or your opponent’s lists.

See you all next time….
