    I have a multi-melta marine in my collection, but don't know what to do with him. I believe only dev squads can have a marine on foot with a multi-melta, but MM's seem like a poor heavy weapons choice for a dev squad. Is a all MM dev squad usefull? Do MM's mix well with any other HW choices for a dev squad?

    They are ok, i would put them in a Razor back with laascannons so you can head of to one tank while you destroy another.

    Personally I don’t like a fielding a multi melta in a long-range dev squad. You could however field 1-4 multi-meltas and mount them in a rhino. That would surprise any tank heavy army.
    Salamanders are allowed to field a multi melta in there tactical squads, that’s the only other use I can think of.

    multy-meltas are my fevorite heavy weapon, and are great on attack bikes&#092;land speedrs, but a devestator squad need things with range, and its not good at range...

    Agreed. Multi Meltas are better on fast things, I&#39;d rather have lascannons.

    No salamanders for me. My tac squads need las cannons&#33; I play Bruin Chapter(vanilla, bear-themed). So I will probably make an extra devastator squad with the MM guy for games when I have left-over Heavy choices.
