Horus Heresy Review: Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter

Deep-striking and fast as anything in the game, the primaris-lightning strike fighter is a cheapish Fast Attack choice for both Legion and Mechanicum armies.

There are a number of potential builds, depending on the battlefield role that one wants for this flier. And this is accomplished by using up to the three hard points on the craft. So: are you going to use it to hunt tanks with? Or what about chase down infantry? Or are you going to use is filled up with bombs perhaps and other one-shot items?

Here are a few ideas.

Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter with 4 Electromagnetic Storm Charges, 2 Kraken penetrator missiles, Ramjet diffraction grid (220 points)
This is an anti-tank option. The flier relies on the standard lascannons that it comes with an supplements these with the haywire of the storm charges and the armour bane of the krakens for best effect. The diffraction grid is there to keep it in the skies! Add on the battle servitor control for tank hunters to taste.

Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter with twin linked frag and krak missile launcher, rad missiles, twin-linked auto cannon, phosphex bomb cluster (220 points)
Immoral weapons, low AP and a half decent rate of fire make this the nemesis for terminators and artificer armoured targets alike. It won't last long, so make sure you fire off all your weapons quickly. Or take more than one fighter.

Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter with twin-linked auto cannon, twin-linked multi-laser, sun fury heavy missiles, ground-tracking auguries (200 points)
This is one for taking out regular marines through a combination of rate of fire and AP3.

Primaris-Lightning Strike Fighter with twin-linked missile launcher (160 points)
A cheap alternative with both lascannons and missile launcher makes this a flier to keep the pressure up on multiple targets. Take several of them for increased enemy headaches.
