I'm probably wrong given tat I never have actually played with a Land Raider in my CSM army, but I think assault doors let you do that though

Yeah it would be a pretty obvious target.

The Assault Vehicle capacity of Land Raiders (and Open-Topped Transports) allows you to Assault after disembarking irrespective of whether or not the vehicle moved beforehand - it does not mean that you do not count as moving when you disembark for purposes of Shooting, which was the discussion.

But if you include a Phaeron, of course, you go back to full range. I like Night Scythes, they tend to do excellent work turboing around the board getting in the way turn one, and then the few survivors ending up tesla-ing around.

Wanted to bring this back up again as now on Overwatch the Gauntlet can use its flamer template. Ouch. Well, not the template part. But the wounding part.

While neat, I still say the Warscythe is much better.

referring back to the beginning of this thread... that may be so against MEQ, but against ORKS/D\ELDAR/IG/NIDS, the gauntlet is awsome

one not on the OP though, the models that carry the gauntlet are S5, so your actually wounding orks T4 on 3's, not 4's :D

yeah against hoardes I would probably go for gauntlet if it is a generic lord who I don't have a plan for

Not denying that it wouldn't be great against hordes. I personally find the Warscythe as a better all-comers weapon is all.

Warscythes are the premier anti-vehicle melee weapon now.

There is absolutely no reason to ever take a Gauntlet, especially with the Chariot buffs making CCBs even more invaluable.
