First of 2 posts concerning those underused flame units.

Does "Troops < Exotic < Flame" as mentioned in the blog post necessarily hold true? I think I have lost a shootout against Braves with my Menchits.

Yeah it doesn't really hold up vs. A4 units, particularly really robust ones like Destroyers.

At the same time. Exotic troops with 2 casualties are much less powerful than undamaged ones.

I think your article is extremely well written.

I will argue that Tormentors are a Top Three "best unit in the game."

Then again, I also think Fast Movers are also a valuable psychological piece as well.

In a game of mobility, board control is important.

Flame weapons will not single handedly destroy enemy infantry, but they will soften them, hopefully setting up a win condition for your infantry. Destroyers are special snowflakes as they have a real passive and not a dodge. Didn't think of it until now, but if there were more flame units the difference Scourge feel between their exotics and others, like Sirens and Firstborn, might be less pronounced. As Egge stated, A4 is tough, but they only come 6 in a squad, and everyone you drop is nearly a base (of the most standard infantry) worth of CQB.

Thank you DZC Zealot, you touch on a broader subject that I may spin off to after the next post.

Interesting. Food for thought though I'm not convinced yet.

Interesting articles, I don't regret the time spent magnetizing my PHR plastic starter set walkers weapons...

I want to like the flame weapons units, I'll try them next time I play a game !

I really want to try out Fire Wagons but I'm finding it pretty difficult to shoehorn them into a list.
