Default XV8 name...?

OK i read the naming scheme thread (stickied) and couldn't figure out what to call my sucidal monat. (I'm not really interested in whether that idea is fluffy or not :P) . It is a XV8 armed with a fusion claster and twin linked flamer with HW multi tracker. Please help... I may have simply missed it, but I swear I saw nothing on what to call this combo! anyway thanks for the help.

Failsafe detonator DOESN'T work if your Crisis is a Mon'at. It doesn't explode if the Crisis is destroyed; it rather is destroyed if the Crisis lose a CC round, and are forced to retreat. The Failsafe makes sure they are not overrun.

Cheers,
-Bone

Put in some drones, and you solve that problem. I was really kidding, though.

Even if you give him drones...it still wouldn't work, because if he dies...the Drones are removed as casualties.

While the attention to the build is apreciated, it isn't answering my post's question... I am experimenting with this as a deeps-strike style bare bones unit. No drones, no special issue gear not nothing, I only took the TL flamer to give it the ability to reroll wounds.

Well, I don't know... Deepstriking is rather risky with that sort of short-ranged weaponry, even if there's a Pathfinder APC in LoS.

As for a name... I like "Funeral Pyre" :P. Something with fire is definitely needed.

In general, I'd advise you against suicidal units like this. First of all, they are easy KPs (even though no self-respecting gamer should use them, they are usual in some places). Secondly, they take up a valuable Elite slot. I'd rather take a full unit of Crisis or Stealths in it's stead, mainly because they are more cost-effective.

I was thinking of calling it a Blastforge, and i am planing on using it as a tank hunter or anti-barrage deepstrike unit. I know it is risky, and probably a waste, but I am curious to see how it works out.
