+++I don't believe there is any minimum points limit although I may be wrong... at least not for flyers+++

2000pt game minimum. However, they should be saved for special occasions.

+++Bear in mind the bit about special occasions as well though Creed. Superheavies could eat a sizeable chunk of your points in a 2,000 point game+++

I would save superheavies for games of 3,000 points or over. >

Well, you have to be playing a two army list game, and the second army list has to consist of 1-3 super heavy tanks and NOTHING else, their point guzzlers and they limit your troop choices so watch out when your taking them. Also the game must be of at least 2,000 points so that meens to use a baneblade the game has to be at least 2,700 points or your not getting one, fielding 3 superheavy tanks is... well thats just scary (approximately 3,100 point game for 2,000 points of standard guard and the three baneblades)

Yes and no. The Super-Heavies form a seperate "Detachment", which can only be used in a game of 2,000pts or more. You don't need two Force Organisation Charts.
