What do you mean by this? There is nothing to prevent you from charging after firing your Psycannons, or Storm bolters.
I really need to buy the core rulebook. Ignore, I'm getting confused by other players.
I actually really like that they got rid of all of the templates and blast markers. The only issue is that they need to make the range for all of the basic Flamers/Incinerators 10" instead of 8", so you can actually use them from Reserves (and more reliably in Overwatch), and they should make the RNG outcomes a little larger (like 2d3, or d3+3, etc.).
I suppose it's easier to resolve, but yeah with the other issues still currently holding back incinerators (no synergy with Teleport Strike, low average impact), I won't be using them till they're reworked. It's especially confusing sometimes because my group is still active 30k, so I have to mentally switch back to using templates.
Flamethrowers in general are pretty good this edition. The problem with incinerators is they are too expensive and can't be used after teleporting.
Anyway, if you are assembling some new PAGK, I'd wait for the codex release next month. It's very likely they change special weapons so they become at least playable.
They're still good at killing Flyers I seriously hope they change that eventually, it's kind of absurd that everything else misses more but you can burn planes out of the sky.
Strikes and Interceptors are great now, but yeah I wouldn't be building any special weapon guys for now.
So it's confirmed we're getting our codex next month?
