Hi! I want to field some Burnaz and a few questions come to mind.
Is it possible to put 15 Burna Boyz in a Battle Wagon, move 12" and shoot with all of them? How exactly does this work? If you could place the template over let's say 6 enemy models, would you roll to wound 90 times?
Check the Rulebook on multiple template weapons. Basicalyl you do 1 at a time. So you place 1 tempalte, it hits 6 models, you roll 6 wounds and they make saves. You then place the 2nd tempalte, assuming you killed 1 with the 1st, you now hit 5 models and roll 5 wounds, and they make saves. Then you place the 3rd template, etc... You do this until you have either placed all the templates or killed the squad off.
Armies thus far....

Unfortunately a squad of burna boys isn't as good as one might think, if they're on foot then each shot has to come from the model who's firing the weapon, so unless they're all in a line then there'll be friendly fire (ahahahaha).
As a sisters of battle player I know all about not flaming your own troops, so I can see this being a problem with Burna Boyz, except that they have another option. Use them as power weapons when you've run out of room or inclination to flame. BB's are an expensive, fragile and short-ranged unit, but they potentially hit exceptionally hard.
Check the RB, its on page 31, "Multiple Template Weapons".
Though as hs5ias mentioned, with Burnas you want to charge in and use them as PW. Note that if you flame with them and then charge that same turn, then they don't count as a PW for that initial assault phase (but will for subsiquent phases). So its best to use a few flamers, but save the majority for PW death
Good point I suppose, so you melt one or two guys and then carve them up!
Ok, two rows of dudes would be great then.
Thanks for the replies! They will jump right into assault then. 8Y
