I read through the rules and didn't see anything specifically stating that they couldn't. I looked around on the forums and no one seems to have the same question, so I'm assuming they can't, but it's not really in the rules anywhere...

They can't. If you check the reference sheet (the very very last page of the rulebook) you'll notice some weapons have the "Overwatch" property. Without it, the weapon can't be set to overwatch. The flamer doesn't have the "overwatch" property, so no overwatch for you! angry

- Overwatch nazi.

This is quite clearly stated in the rules actually. Flamer = no overwatch.

Thanks! I figured as much as that would be insanely overpowered, but I could not find it for the life of me in the rulebook. Although you have to admit, it would be pretty sweet if he could.

FYI, it is on page 13, 4th line below the sub-header "Overwatch Actions".
Hope that clears it up for you.

I don't have my book to hand (I'm decorating), but I'm sure it can't.

Further, only Bolters and Auto Cannons can be used on Overwatch.

No, but if the Marine with the Flamer has a GS take an action within his LoS then 2CP may be spent to drop some promethium lovin' on the GS.
