hi guys, i usually found that i cannot rely with good screening and field elements deployment leaving some of my troops very naked in front of enemy fire, suggestions has been made using Furies as screeners for some troops such as Khorne dogs and GDs , i also found somewhere that a big monster can charge hrough screening and skirmishers as well, can u tell me how and what are the advantages in case of enemy fire?
What you mention is only an exception, not a rule.
It refers to kroxigors and skinks from the lizardmen army; kroxigors can indeed charge through skinks, but this is the only case.
Generally, you use screeners to avoid missile fire; and you may have something bulky behind them so that, when skirmishers get charged, they flee through the unit behind, and the enemy has then to choose, whether to have a failed charge, or to engage the heavy unit.
And then the skirmishers will be free to move again, if you can rally them.
Still, the usage of furies imo is pure screening and warmachine hunting, since they cannot flee and would be crushed even by crewmen if charged.
PS: Also remember that large targets are always visible and targettable (and give +1 to shooters), unless hidden behind another large target or a large piece of scenery (which you should define before the match begins).

I don't see how Furies can screen GD's, as they are Large. Use terrain for that.
Furies are great for blocking line of sight to you Flesh Hounds, though, that's true. In terms of screens, Furies are the way to go. Most armies will have 1-2 units of them for screening, charge diverting anything else to get them killed
