you should have asked all these questions in one post.

depending on what you fight, i cant say which would be better, howefver, the grenade launcher has more applications, so go three parts grenade launcher, one part flamer.

-Do not make useless posts... both of your i have seen thus far did not make it over 5 words
-Do not insult members even as a joke
-Read the forum rules if you already havn't

now to the topic.
Gren launchers are good if you have assautly type units in your army as are flamers.
The only reason i'd say take a flamer is if the terrain is of reasonable density or if you play catachans! but feild flamers in conscript platoons to discard their shocking BS

*sigh* which part of useless post did you not understand

Anyways, id take grenade launchers in most situations. Take flamers if, your guys are deepstriking, your playing in a map with loads of cover, your playing catachan, your playing against catachan, the enemy uses loads of swarm bases. Personally i prefer nade launchers, also, dont give conscripts special weapons. its a waste, you actually pay more to have it on a worse model.

Grenade Launchers are better all-round for SIGAFH players, but Flamers are valuable if (for some deranged reason :) you decide you want to get close to the enemy.

Oh, one point; Flamers with Conscripts rock. Their poor Bs doesn't matter with an auto-hit gun.
