    Your idea is very good, I like it.

    But in the devestator squad, why take all different heavy weapons?
    Why not take eg. 2 lascannons and 2 heavybolters?
    Sure the way you have put it up makes sure you'll be ready for just about anything.
    But what if suddenly something which you didn't expect turns up?
    Try looking into this and maybe specialize the force after what your opponent plays.

    giving the vets frag is a good idea Ill do that.

    and no tzeenchplayer i didnt even know you did one, i just found an article and found it would be a good idea to do especialy since the pink colorsheme draws all firepower to me in multi games

    and about the devastators, 2 reasons, they come like that in a box and they are ready for anything.

    I agree with the people above, keep heavy weapons to one roll (either troop killing or tank busting). My favorite Dev. squad is 4 plasma cannons it&#39;s the equivelent of a weed-wacker on NOS. but on the practical side (assuming your buying all the stuff) you can use the missle launchers from you tactile squads to form a effective mulity purpouse squad and you don&#39;t have to buy the devestaro box. Just buy another tactile squad instead.

    Other than that i don&#39;t really like flamers. Because the flame template is 8 inches long. Wich means when you fire it your either in assualt range and then you lose your charing bonus or you going to be an inch short and get swamped next turn by a lot of angry beasties.

    On the same line of thought how many guys do you have in each tactile squad? I&#39;m guessing that there is only five in each. In wich case i don&#39;t think they&#39;ll do very well in the up front in your face unit you want they to be. The fact is that five man squads get riped apart in close combat. I think that if you can some how find a way to make at least one squad 8 or 9 guys and leave the other as a body guard for the force comander you will do much better.

    the missile launcher is a great idea, Ill work on that I found some old devestators too in a bits n pieces box so i might totaly throw my devs around, about the 5 man squads, theyr more versatile as 5 man squads and the benefit of an extra champion is also nice, doesnt mean they both have to charge a different target or move in a different direction does it?

    the remark on the flamer is a good one ill replace it with a assault cannon

    now I gotta figure out how to flip it all around somehow

    (Old devestators = lascannon plasma cannon 2 heavy bolters and 2 missile launchers so i can go any way I want now )
