I have new Grey Knight army and i wont to now what is the best choise for my termis. Incinarator or Psycannons against Tyranids.
Last , Psycannon has any use against swarm armys (like orcs and tyranids)?
MEAT IS MURDER
Against rushing hordes? I'd take Incinerators, your burn alot more of them down when they get into range but having said that Terminators with Psycannons may be best as you always have the long range..
Ultimately, psycannons give you the range but against hordes they aren't as effective unless.. of course you had alot of them in your army but then you may be wasting alot of storm bolter shots.
But incinerators will give you alot more death and destruction when they get up close...
Damn right they will, I cant wait to fight my friends orcish WAAAGH!
I like the psycannon for my GM, and I put an incinerator in with the termies accompaning him. GK are best in close combat so you will be moving in that direction anyway.
The incinerator is good and very close range, but I have had not that much luck with it. I prefer the Psycannon, and will be taking the incinerator out of my army. Sorry but you cant beat that 3 shots at 36" str 6, with no invul save.
Ah, but once they get down to that close in range where either you are going to charge or the enemy will, those three shots aren't going to look so great when compared to the Str 5 ignoring invuln saves and cover ignoring flamer template you could put down.
Yeah. Just HOW many gaunts can you fit under a flamer template? One helluva lot.
yeah the psycannons r pretty good but they r most affective when they r used from long range at them cause u'll b able to shoot off quite a few b4 they actually get to u but 4 terminators who r deepstriking, the incinerator is better as u can fit more models under the template and kill of quite a few! hope this helps.

I do have to agree that the incinerator is a great weapon, but I have not had much luck with it. Especially in a terminator squad. In the Deep strik GK I love it, and and have no plans of taking it out. But i do see your point.
Deepstriking PAGK: Incinerators, packs a lot of punch close up, especially when you're about to charge.
Normal PAGK: Psycannon, 36" St 6 weapon is essential for a light-gun army. Take a Purg squad if you have the points, if not, throw a couple of these into every not-deepstriking GK squad.
Deepstriking Termies: 2 TH/SS, no Incinerators or Psycannons, seeing as I'd rather get these guys into CC as soon as possible.
i'd like to put one of each special weapon in each squad for flexibility. haven't done this yet though
also, on deepstriking squads i like to have incinerators. think how much you could weaken the enemy then charge into CC
