Welcome to Librarium Online!
Please can somebody help me find out how this weapon works? How do you roll against leadership? Does that mean if they are ld10 im wounding on 5+? If so, why would I take this against the eldritch, Its really confusing me, thankyou if you help.
My guess is: You use the normal to-wound table but instead of the targets toughness you insert its leadership value. That means you wound regular space marines on 4+ and leadership 10 models on 6+.
Since it's not a morale check, I think the leadership of the majority counts just as wounding units with different toughness values works. Example: you fire it at a space marine squad with 5 marines and a sergeant. you wound on 4+ because most of the unit is LD 8.
So, why would I use this over an eldritch? Sorry, im new to 40k
And it's cheaper. And effects more guys. And is a lot better against cheap hordes. I was considering taking a court of 5 with a veil against guard infantry blocks - the damage output could be massive.

Oh its ap1! Its a flamer with ap1, that's nasty! So basically im killing marines on 4? What's the leadership of a termi?
The only benefit is that it's a template(no cover save) and its high Ap.

So could be a nasty counter assault unit, or could be used with lych guard?
