    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...

    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.

    Since when is that a bad thing? A bolter isn&#39;t going to kill that many. Neither are most weapons, statistically.

    It&#39;s fluffy for IW to use them, as it would be for any shooty CSM army really.

    I&#39;d say playtest it, and see for yourself. I personally don&#39;t use it, since my DP is more close combat oriented, and there a Dark blade or Ether lance would be more practical.

    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&#39;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&#39;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&#33; I was also thinking of giving them a Rhino, I&#39;m pretty sure this tactic will work, seeing as I&#39;m mostly playing against Marines, and if its not Marines, I could just use this squad against the Elite Squads
