Has anyone given pirahanas flechette launchers to piranas and then thrown them at S3 troops for a turn as a kamikaze and to protect firewarriors.

Paying 60+ points for a kamikaze, bait unit isn't a good idea.. especially when it's a single model that can be brought down with relative ease. It probably won't be doing a whole lot of damage in that respect, either.. it doesn't sound like a great idea. There are so many better uses for a Pirahna.Originally Posted by Connor Ivering
Piranhas can make a good Kamikaze unit, but only if limited to 1-3 models.
Also, play them like you want them to live. Don't start a game thinking "I'll let these models die." The Piranha is a great unit when played right, and shouldn't be wasted.
Remember to unload the Gun Drones as soon as possible. Think about your opponent, and gear the Piranha right. MEQs? Fusion Blasters for the lot o' them! GEQ? Leave the Burst Cannon, and (points sparring) add a Flechette Discharge.
Piranha's seem like the old Pathfinders to me. They'll take a while to learn how to use, but once you do they'll be great.

Yeah - I've tried it....it didn't work that well. Got assaulted by an assault squad that only took one casualty from the fleschettes. Versus tyranids and other armies that are assaulty with low armour save it might work though...
