1. You can do the same with Plasma and save points. 6 more points over a Melta Gun is two Plasma Guns, or 34 points for 2 Melta Guns vs 39 for 3 Plasma Guns. Pretty obvious what's more reliable at that point.
2. Melta Gun =/= Melta Rule. Inferno Pistols are meh in the first place, in which their only saving grace is that they MIGHT be used in melee (unlikely), and a Multi-Melta being 27 points is pretty laughable.
3. The point stands that the saved points add up.


1. Yes, you can. But you need a buffing character if you want to minimize the risk of blowups. Thats at least 75 pts. for SM.
2. I wonder how i managed to use inferno pistols with my 10 model DC unit in CC. How did i do that if its unlikely in melee ?

And you missed the points for the transport you mentioned, so that's 140 at least just to make their monster decide to tackle a different front and still do damage to your army even in your ideal situation. Not a good strategy against anyone who's not sleep-playing.


Great thing about a razorback is that it can have twin lascannons, and serve as a transport. If you stay away with your daemon/monster, because you are afraid of my tiny 2 model unit, i can use the lascannons to shoot at it.

Unlikely=/=impossible.

For thirteen years I had a dog with fur the darkest black. For thirteen years he was my friend, oh how I want him back.

So you're saying lascannons are good and your melta pistols are just sitting inside the tank driving up its point cost while they could be contributing if they had plasma equipped? Yeah I agree.
