    Lots of Thunderhammers. Cermite(sp?) armor on vehicles. Melta-type weapons everywhere. Mantle. Cool fluff. To play a less-common SM chapter. Need more, or is that enough?

    The only down side they have in the Strudy rule. Everything thing else is good, Cheap MC, Vet sergeants with signums, extra flamers, mantles, free thunder hammers for chaplains, cheap termies and most importantly the extra turn rule.
    There are ways of getting around the initiative thing as well you can either load up on Thunder hammers, or hide in cover.

    Plus what little fluff there is is good.

    they have fire and lots of it
    quite a few thunder hammers too and cool colour sheme is why i would collect them.

    Bobby Wockerfella and myself both agree that it is because they are black that they have an initiative penalty

    The thing that blows is the lack of fast attack. You can only have one of each and there all I 3 instad of the standard 4. Besides that you can always get an extra turn in a fight and meltas and multimeltas are cool. And there liberains has a interesting psyker power.
