Do you think inferno pistols are any good for assault squads? I’m thinking if melee weapons are covered by legion specific units, it might make sense to use assault squads as anti-tank units capable of also assisting heavy hitting units in combat.

I’m building a squad of 10 and was thinking going with thunder hammer for sergeant and two marines with inferno pistols. With DOR this would be dropped near the enemy with first turn melta attacks and second turn charge. If forced to attack an infantry squad, the TH of course suffers from attacking last, but this can be mitigated by using the unit with Sanguinius or another unit of command squad / dawnbreaker squad to handle challenges.

Any opinions?

Inferno Pistols are dope. Very strong punch to have with little downsides. Great for zapping Artificer Sergeants or multiwound terminators.

I love inferno pistols, their only downfall is their range. Paladins I've played once and they were underwhelming for their points cost, love the models but their use is limited in my lists. Dawnbreakers on the other hand
