Hey all , I was just wonderinng what your experience has led you to believe about Purgation squads and what was their effectivness on different troops. I'm mostly talking about Phsycannon Purgs but incinorater purgs are good too... I guess
I would only use a Pyscannon purg squad on an army with base troops with a toughness of 3 or less (double strength!!! :w

I hate to tell you, but anything with Toughness of 3 only has 1 wound anyways usually....so it doesnt really matter does it....
actually inquisiters, Cannoness's (sisters hq), and imperial guard hq's, death cult assassins, and the priest in the current sisters of battle army list (pre-witch hunters codex) all have t 3 and multiple wounds. Thats in the imperial armies alone. I wouldn't be surprised to find t3 creatures with multiple wounds in the eldar, dark eldar, and Tau armies (not their battle suits, because those give all sorts of weird bonus's to the stats of a model).
its nice to wound space marines on a 2+ too.
you just made my point...all of those you listed, come in VERY limited quantities in an army..usually one or 2 of um is it...
Yea, but instant kill or not, psycannons are very effective against low toughness creatures. I like purgation squads myself, but seeing as my most common opponent is in power armor, don't actually use them much.
My experiance of Purg squads is that they are far FAR too expensive to be of any real use in an army less than 2500pts. The psycannon team is way too many points and although it is very good at killing many-men (T3-4) it never seems to get the chance to really let loose on somthing that is effected by its special rules. This means that for many games you can find yourself paying hudge numbers of points for weapons that never seem like much more than heavy bolters.
The incinerator squad, on the other hand, shows potential. I have experimented with a pricy, but devastating squad which used 5 incinerators (1 for each purgator and 1 for the Justicar) and a Land Raider Crusader..............oh ho hoo.
Again, very expensive (almost 500pts) but what a unit.
A Rhino? SLOTH!
the Incinerator squad would make an excellent unit to drop on a weak flank...and it would REALLY make an opponenet wet his pants
I might be mistaken, but wasn't it determined that justicars cannot in fact take special weapons?and 1 for the Justicar
in the Daemonhunters FAQ it was Megalo..yes indeed...
