Am I actually the only one who thinks that the S6 on Shredders is utterly wasted? Of course, it needs to be a flamer, but I'd rather have something that excels at killing GEQ, as we can deal with high toughness already.

Well, S6 does mean we wound GEQ on a 2+ (with a re-roll) so with D6 autohits you could kit out 4 Trueborn or Scourges for anti-GEQ duty and expect them to kill ~10 GEQ per turn.

I'm just really afraid that GW will think "A flamer with S6? Wow, this is powerful, better make it expensive". Which is why I am more in favour of S3 with re-rolling wounds and a cheaper price.

I'm really not against S6, but realistically I don't think we would get that for a reasonable price.

God no! Another S3 flamer would be awful!

This.

It needs to be S4 at minimum.
