I mean these are perfectly viable, there easy to model on. Wouldnt you like your seargeant to do a strength eight attack on the backside of a vehicle. Why does everyone seem to forget?
The Grenades are freePersonally, I model them onto all of my guys on the off chance that I might add grenades to my guys' wargear. However, unless your going up against an all vehicle force for offensive grenades or expecting to have alot of close combat for defensive and some offensive grenades, the grenades are simply a waste of points.
edit: darn, ninja'd. For example, squads of nameless soldiers. However, I gave my Lord Commissar melta bombs, and he took out a land raider.
And safer too. While it is feasible (NOT VIABLE) to use Krak grenades, the situations to use them rarely materialise. Most units that carry them also tend to have better guns, which are best used at a longer range, and they are better off avoiding CC.Much easiyer to blow the thing up at a distance.
well the fact there not strength 8 is a turn off, and the fact my guardsmen have to pay points for them and the fact I now have to get guardsmen in close combat with a vehicle that can't attack me back.I mean these are perfectly viable, there easy to model on.

This, it's cheaper and move effective really.Or for the same boys buy a trukk with a stickbomb chukka for 5 points and cover the 12 man unit as it assaults. Orks do not have great armour so any opponent they get to strike equally or first to instead of last is good news.
