I get that, but Arnt the fire caste bred form birth for combat, even before that?
And their guns I believe have an AI to aid aiming, their data net work works just like the hive mind...
And it's like saying, why can't assault marines be WS5? It's only 1 unit! Or something like that...
I'm not being rude, I just think that you don't need bs 4, you already ignore cover saves, surely that's worth a bs to be able to bend it like beckam?

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late
