I don't think there was already a thread of this so here goes. When firing with multiple flamers are you still allowed to fire if a model of the same squad is in the way? Such as a Burna Boyz squad firing at an enemy squad directly in front of itself.
It stipulates in the rule for template weapons that you place it without touching friendly models. (Page 29) You can still fire with that unit, but any flamers that can't make a hit without toasting friendlies would be unable to fire that turn.
Model positioning is more important than ever with flamers!
You can also use this to your advantage.
Possition your models so that you can just barely hit the unit you're firing at with the flamer, and the rest of the template spills over onto another unit.
You then toast the unit you "weren't" firing at, and get to charge the unit you "were".
It's a pretty mean trick, people will hate you for it, but totally legal and fun.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...

Just as a proviso to the last two posts, you are supposed to hit as many models as possible of the target unit with the template as possible without hitting your own - so you really do need to position your guys with this in mind, as you can't decide to just clip the target unit if you could hit more with a direct blast. You have to force yourself to do it with friendly models, it can't be by choice.
Hrm, that's something I hadn't thought of and will have to try it out. Very devious indeed :3
