Default Harker and Transport

I decided to make a veteran squad with harker in it, and was wondering whether it was worth taking a chimera loaded with flamers with him as he has the 'catachan devils' special ruleset. Even if he didn't use it though, it could be used as fire support. What do you think? Should I take one or not.

He Grants Infiltrate.

Infiltrate is NOT passed on to Dedicated Transports unlike Scout which is.

That is maybe, but the ability to Outflank is passed to a Dedicated Transport, as long as the squad is embarked and choosing to use the Outflank rule.

As for giving him a Chimera? I don't really think it's worth it. He's better infiltrating into a position to either take an Objective early, or be put on it to defend one early.

With the few lists I've played around with making, in which I took Harker, I've set them up in two ways:
1) Used as an Objective clearer, in where you use weapons such as the Heavy flamer, Flamer, Meltagun and Grenade launcher to scare off your enemies.
2) You make use of his Catachan Devils Special Rule, where he counts them all as having Camo-cloaks. Using this, you make a fire-line, where you take Sniper rifles or Plasma guns as the special weapons, and a heavy weapon (I would suggest going with three Sniper Rifles, and a Heavy bolter or Mortar in order to stay in range).
