i'm planning to use a bane wolf, i was thinking about riding 12'' and fire its MM untill it reaches the enemy do you thing that will work or do you think i would be better of wiith firing 2 templates and maybe a turn lesser
I think most people would agree you should specialize and not have two different types of weapons but I think in smaller point games where you can't bring everything it would be good to have one that can wipe out infantry (in cover and armor) and also kill a vehicle should it be called to do so.
I'm not sure enough that I am ready to buy and build it so let me know how it fares.
If you rush it up, granted it will get shot at because it's an IG tank in someone's face. You may be best either sneaking it up a flank or having it counter attack.
Ive been playn banewolves since the dex came out. Just take the chem cannon and a heavy flamer. Flank them, two is best. And then eat everything. Nothing save terminators can standup to them. Since they can move 12 and fire both the chem cannona nd heavy flamer. You can force like 20 wounds easily in one round of simple flame templete shooting.
I've been thinking about this too. I might just stick the MM in and in games I don't need it just say its a HF, it looks pretty similaer anyway and I'm not going to any tournaments anytime soon!

Im with Gaunt on this one. Stick to the Hull H-Flamer and leave the Tank killing to other more specialised units. You can fit so much into a Guard army you don;t need Jack of all trades.
Keep the Bane hound doing what it does best. Killing Infantry.
BS3 Multimelta isn't great at popping tanks because it misses a lot. If you want a jack-of-all-trades variant throw a Heavy Flamer on a Devil Dog; that way you get a Melta Blast (which lessens the fail of BS3) and a template for the same price as your Chemdog; and 15pts cheaper than an MM Chemdog.
EDIT: Maths fail; it's 5pts more than a normal Chemdog and 10pts cheaper than an MM one >_<
The Bane Wolf feels like a countercharge unit to me. A huge threat profile combined with average armor and poor range is usually not a good selection for the front lines; I see that be the case with Space Marine Vindicators all the time. If you still want to be aggressive with it, however, then I recommend the multimelta. The average accuracy is offset by the Hellhound chassis' ability to get around cover saves and be in optimal range. It makes for an excellent second-tier tankbuster.
