Experimenting with the Army builder I made an 1850pt IG army with Jungle Fighters doctrine that could field about 10 flamers, 9 heavy flamers, 6 melta guns, and 6 rocket launchers(85 models). In your opinion how do you think an army like that would fair against other armys?

As long as everything but the rocket launchers are very mobile, it would be just fine.
I personally like flamers and heavy flamers, but they need to be in a chimera to get the most use.
I usually take my platoon command squads and put three flamers and a heavy flamer in them with the Junior Officer. I drive up to a squad of marines or something and just flame them to hell.
The last two times I tried this I double teamed one marine squad of 9 and a chaplain with all 8 flamers. Nothing survived. Poof. 350 points for me.
I was experimenting with the idea of chimeras but they were pretty expensive in the end.
Heres the list in a nutshell:
2 squads of 3 missile launchers
2 melta special weapon squads
2x Guardsman platoons each with
25 guardsman(including sergeants and officers)
3 heavy flamers
2 Hell Hounds
1 Cadian Sentinel
Allow Special Weapons Squads

Maybe I'm just being daft (maybe?) but i had the idea that the only infantry models which could be armed with heavy flamers were sisters of battle and terminators....
Can Guardsmen also have Heavy Flamers?????

Get your sig from-tHe BaD GuY
With the jungle fighters doctrine they can have heavy flamers.
I like your list, but I am concerned about you being able to bring all that short ranged fire and melta weaponry to bear. The bassies and hell hounds may make that possible though. Expect to hear people whine about you having three bassies. Personally I like the idea.
The fire's going out...pass me another heretic.
pretty sweet list, blast em with the bassies and the rush them with the flamers. get a veteran squad and stick in a demo charge :lol:
i would give your Sentinel heavy flamers and i would drop all your flamers on top of the enery useing drop troops

I wouldn't worry about using more than one bassie too much. With the new edition of 40k coming out, it's starting to look like every army is going have some units that are very powerful.
I know I'M going to take advantage of the new Space Marine Bike abilities in my WS army, which will end up with no amount of griping from my opponents I'm sure.
