cleansing flame
« on: May 28, 2016, 02:37:21 PM »
Is there a way to make good use of purifiers and cleansing flame? Is soul blaze just that bad or just overlooked? Would 2 lv 3 librarians casting cleansing flame with the purifiers do any good? Thanks in advance

Cleansing flame is godly against hordes. Nova with a decent Ap? Yes please!

Running a librarian with the relic is a pretty good way to ensure you get the power.

I like to use a stormraven as their transport for a combat squad pair. 4 warp charges dropping into the heart of the enemy.

You just have to manage your other powers that turn.

I was thinking of ways to double up libbies and get 8 + D6 off of the unit. Gate up there and blast away three times. Add in 4 incinerators and bam! A spicy meatball. I could even combat squad them...

I would say that using Gate of Infinity is too risky, its only 9" range and you could scatter or suffers a perils. The stormraven is definitely the way to go, as not only can you cast Cleansing Flame, but you can also shoot and then charge whatever survives. Not much can stand up to this with a 10 man squad. (2 x 5 man Combat squad)

I'm an Eldar player and fear a combat squaded unit in a Rhino, move up and cast of two. Lots of dead Eldar.

Best part is putting heavy weapons/wargear in the second part of the combat squad so the overwatch goes into the cheaper half of the squad.

I use 2 squads in a stormraven. Each with 2 flamers.

Sometimes i use a pyromancy librarian who can cast his own spells too.

Storm raven moves up and they get out. Thats 4 flamer templates over 2 squads.... 2 cleansing flames for multiple hits and the sheeting from the squads in addition to the librarians psychic powers. If you combat squad the 4 flamers into 1 unit then the other 5 with falchions and hammers cast force and Hammerhand and in for the charge.... if its not dead...it aint happy...

And they thought we were underpowered, watered down... not from what I can see. The GK are still strong, and able to leverage what we have against raw numbers

The grey Knights still lack. They don't have any ap2 shooting options and they tend to get diced up against other TEQs

For instance throw a landraider with terminators within and they get smoked
