Actually, they have ruled that they are only one model for x/+ weapons, but once they have taken two wounds you may only fire one of the ranged weapons.  (Either the twin MG or the anti-tank weapon, not both.)

They can take some damage without getting weaker, only count as one model if targeted by flamers and may join a hero?! Where do I get these guys?

Except Hades says nothing about how they handle incendiary blast attacks, which is where most of the confusion seems to be.

Hades even describes them as "three soldiers"

 

To be fair, the rule for incendiary blast references the number of "miniatures," so idk.

Today I tried for the first time Chef with the Crack Shots. Good lord, what an effective unit. You need to use it carefully, preferrably inside a building, and trying to keep it out of harm's way as much as possible, since they only have 5 health. But when they get to do their thing, good lord, the flames, the horror! Chef attacked Sigrid with the Laser Grenadiers, and with his 12 flamer dice hitting on blanks with no cover he easily wiped the whole squad with a single non-sustained attack. It was gruesome. And then you still have the afterthought of having the sniper and rifle attack some other target. For 32 AP, this combo can easily make its cost back and then some.

This weekend I did evil things to Bazooka Joe and the Hell boys with Sigrid and the sniper grenadiers.  Used berserk.  Got one hit from the sniper (goodbye flamethrower), one from the spotter, and EIGHT from Sigrid!  Berserk+spotter = 3 initial hits.  Laser+spotter = 2+2+1.  Anyone else think that's a little broken?
