Well, is the Kai Gun useful? I mean in a standard game 6 turn game it can only kill 12 guys at most. I'm thinking of giving it to my Lieutenant. . .
well it depends on what you prefer, in most legions it isn't going to be used a lot as cc orientated armies will prefer other deamon weapons
Myself I prefer the Darkblade
an option I have tried out with the Kai Gun is giving it to the aspiring champion of a squad and equip them wiith 2 plasmagun and infiltrate, this will get then into range immediatly
I love the thing. One model killing up to two marines per turn, without counting the assault phase? Yes please.
Of course, I play Iron Warriors so I'm more into the shooty stuff, but meh.
Ze titles yez...
When in doubt,
Smite.<SilverMane> I would trust BID with my life
<SilverMane> HEIL BID!

<Scary_Troopers> I see you as an optimist, GT. : D
But what of the midgets!?

I think that it is very useful. On a LT, both shots hit and wound marines on a 2+ w/ no saves. Id say that is very good.
I've never used it as i usually use a dreadaxe ona statured lord... but i may try it soon.
It's not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It's pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

My elvish name is Maeglin Meneldur.
Since when is that a bad thing? A bolter isn't going to kill that many. Neither are most weapons, statistically.in a standard game 6 turn game it can only kill 12 guys at most
It's fluffy for IW to use them, as it would be for any shooty CSM army really.
I'd say playtest it, and see for yourself. I personally don't use it, since my DP is more close combat oriented, and there a Dark blade or Ether lance would be more practical.
If Knowledge is Power, then Genius is Tyranny.
i play a IW, a shooty CSM army, so i think it is good. my LT is always armed with one. if my enemy comes close then i use my lord, armed with a pair of lightning claws, terminator armour, Daemonic mutation (6 attacks).
I have had mixed rsult with following tactic
a 8 man strong IW squad with 2 plasmagun's in it and a aspiring champion with a Kai Gun and then giving them infiltrate
Often they get first turn and first kill on the enemy lines and most of my opponents hate this unit
Just to clarify I don't play IW, I play my own Legion, its Vanilla.
I was thinking to give this LT to a Havoc Squad filled with PlasmaGuns, that means ten shots per turn at some Enemy Squad, Yay! I was also thinking of giving them a Rhino, I'm pretty sure this tactic will work, seeing as I'm mostly playing against Marines, and if its not Marines, I could just use this squad against the Elite Squads
