How strong are hunter killer missiles? They seem kind of weak. Every time my friends use them they cant even kill the basic marine. Can some one help me here?
They should be quite capable of killing marines, even though I think they should be used for what their name states.
-They suck!- I'm with Psyco on that one.
Just a hint, NEVER GET THEM!!!
For the price of 2 1/2 guardsmen you get a single Krak Missile. They simply arn't worth it, no matter how you look at it.
Hunter-Killer missiles are something extra to buy if you have the extra points. True about the unlimited range usually being obscured. However, I have seen more than one IG or SM player's final shot be a hunter-killer, and it can actually turn the tide of the battle. In other words, it is another krak missile that can capitalize on the sweet target, like a lord all by himself, or a dread that got exposed or the wounded wraithlord that needs just one more shot.
One time in a bring and battle game we had something like 6 vs. 6 and someone on the far left side of the field shot a hunter killer across the entire field to hit and Stun a Nurgle Dreadnought. The guy facing off with him was fairly grateful, and the nurgle guy thought it was funny too.
i must adit HK are good for that vital shot. (in SM armies they work well)

For DH they're rather useful, seeing as how we lack a lot of high-S/low-AP weaponry. And since we can throw them on EVERY freakin vehicle we take (including Dreads), it's a nice little kick.
Yeah, any time I take any sort of Non-Eldar list, I always max out on Hunter Killer Missiles, why? Because they rock... Its just plain useful having a medium anti tank weapon on your transports. Sure their expensive, and sure their one shot, but hey, for less then twenty points, Ill take a bonus crack at that Hammerhead.
