I am new to the game and I am going to be playing axis. I bought the tactics set along with a zombies box, laser grenadiers, and the rule book. I was looking forward to running Blutkruez platoon with zombies and guys using lasers. The setup just appealed to me and I really like the way they look. Anyways I have seen some people making vague references to laser grenadiers being unbalanced in a few threads but I could not tell if they meant too powerful for their points or not worth their points. If they are not that great I can live with it because I like their looks but I don't want to be running around with a units that are broken and have my friends accusing me of cheese after a few games. I have looked at them in the rule book and they seem decent with their ability to hurt about anything but they do not seem over powering especially at their points cost unless I am missing something.
