    Heavy Flamers

    Kinda neat how guard infantry have access to these now, but are they really worth their cost? Especially considering it's little brother is 1/4 the cost and performs almost just as well.

    Personally i'm hoping they're not another guard faux-pas like non-ratling snipers, But i'll wait to see what the guard community has to say.

    Four times the cost of a standard flamer for a small boost to strength and AP? Eh, I'll just take 4 flamers as they will kill more stuff for the cost of 1 heavy flamer. If I want heavy flamers, I'll take them on vehicles.

    The hulls of Russes and Chimeras are the perfect place to take heavy flamers. Free and durable. 20 points is very overpriced when compared to the regular flamer.

    Yep, I can't justify the cost of them on infantry. Great for vehicles tho.

    Exactly. Also on outflanking Scout Sentinels too- I use a pair of them, appearing next to a unit of fire warriors and burning them off an objective is fun

    Other than for fluff purposes (Catachans), I can't see any real use for them for their cost...

    UNLESS I was writing a list for a specific Cities of Death campaign/game- as Sentinels/Chimeras can't climb strairs
