May be useful if it ignores cover, otherwise I'll use the good old Basilisk

I got to proxy 3 of these today and...WOW I was stunned how cool they really are, especially got 195points for the squadron. Every single turn I killed at least a squad, roughly 800 points were gone by turn 4! To start things off I hit a squad of Flesh Hounds for 48 hits... let me repeat that...48 hits! They did not survive to say the least. 12 small blasts may not sounds great but twin-linking them makes them amazing! Where ever I wanted to hit I more or less hit. I already pre-ordered 3 but might bump it to 6 and field them in our next 1000 point tournament just to be mean. Know if I can just figure out how to deal with MC I might be able to get some Nid payback

12 blasts shouldn't get you 48 hits against a competent opponent spreading out their force, let alone wounds. So I'm glad for you that your opponent bunched up his/her squads, but I don't think you can rely on getting so many every time. I can usually only place a small blast for 2 or 3 hits, and on rare occasions scatter for 4.

...still, you've piqued my interest. I'm marginally more excited to get the codex, now (not that I wasn't before--but a favorable report sure doesn't hurt my hopes).

I was very lucky he was bunched up for sure. The key was the twink-linking which allowed 12 small blasts to be placed where I wanted them on his squad. I meant 48 hits not wounds and will fix that, I was excited to come home and tell the tale, especially since he was set up in ruins
