Flame Units Only - Salamanders Heavy Flamer Squad

I think it's something with my origins playing Eldar back in 3rd edition that warms my heart to see a whole unit of specialists.

It might also have to do with how 40k's shooting rules really are not built for the model of generalists & specialists, or specialists in two different areas, being in the same squad, and how the HH load-outs for the most part bypass this entirely. I think that giving all squads a single split fire attack would have gone a long way to making a lot of the formations that are supposedly a good idea but are actually a waste of time viable, but c'est la vie- FW's pseudo-patch does a good enough job of responding to the issue.

Also, it would probably be a bad idea to charge these guys.
