In tinkering around with various weapon loadouts and/or races, am I the only one that feels like flamers are grossly underpowered? While they're great at destroying morale, the actual 'damage' done is rather abyssmal. I understand they wouldn't be great against certain targets, (i.e. a flamethrower isn't going to so much as annoy a baneblade tank), but what about unarmored units such as ork slugga boys? I would think burning promethium would, in addition to scaring the *insert expletive here* do some serious damage.
balance, if they made it stronger it would be the ultimate infantry killing machine. except that the sob flamers turrets and listning posts do stink at killing heavy infantry, takes longer than other turrets.
his flamers overkill compared to others =D
Actually, I think the crisis suits have a bit of an overkill with the flamers. Shame they tend to die off so quickly.
I didn't make it!
The flamers sole purpose is to destroy morale, get a squad of guys with flamers and a squad of guys with bolters and you'll wreak havoc... simple as that lol
