Default TwinLinked Flamer Suit

A very cheap suit would be a TwinLinked flamer and then deepstriking near som Armor 5+ people but with LoS to your PathFinders DevilFish to avoid deviation. That would probably make it costefficient. Just an idea...

I'll stare the xxxxxxx in the face as he screams to God, and I'll laugh harder when he whimpers like a baby. And when his eyes go dead, the hell I send him to will seem like heaven after what I've done to him.

Yeah, that can be a devastating unit, especially if you don't fear assault from the units you're flaming!

Can I use a flamer as Vectored Thrusters, and get a template attack when I flee combat? ;D

Maybe 3 TL-flamer suits would be better, with 2 drones for added effect, a couble or marklights and you just might have a pinned down squad . Thoug I dont think the pathfinder devilfish is reliable enough to get your suits where you want them.

Yes, it would be only ## points, and with deepstrike, thats a whole squad of 5+ armour save troops gone.

You can't TL a flamer (unless this is something new that I haven't heard about.)

First off, when the majority of your opponents will have T4 and 3+, why on earth would you opt for dual flamers, no matter the price?

Second, what do you mean you hate Carapace armor? If the guard player is stupid enough to take carapace armor all over the place, I can't help but smile.
