    no and it aint wise - multi meltas are quite short range, as anti tank weapons they work best under 12 inches, to get to that range you are gonna have to move, to fire the MM you are gonnahave to stay still, why bother? las cannons and MLs have far better range

    Thing is though, it's not a very good tactic for the above reasons. You have to get within 12" of your target to be truly effective, and spent considerable time moving there (and so you won't be able to fire unless you spend a turn just sitting there waiting for the MM to get ready).

    And if your counting on your opponent to take his vehicles to you....your opponent must be an idiot. Lascannon and meltas are what you need for these rolls.

    just never mount MMs on anything which can't move 12" and fire at the same time...that's just about the only way to effectively use multi-meltas, tho its legal to mount on tac marines.

    I have found the melta and multi-melta tactical squad quite effective myself. However, I do keep them small (6 models) and give them infiltrate, which I find more than makes up for their short range.

    Melta guns however, are excellent on any infiltrating or drop poding tactical squad.

    Haha gangster if you like to be shot at

    It is not effective. MMs would only take possibly if you dropped or infil them. Normally, walking no. I'd go for attack bikes or speeders all the way.

    hmmm

    Multi-meltas in a normal tactical squad is perfeerctly legal 10points and you have a assain and a tank hunter besides it has a range of 24'' and can easily kill tanks and charcters in one shot. When i used one it melted away 2 scarabs and a monoloth (with help!) a excellent replacement for a tactical member and better than a bolter!.
