Are flamers, screamers and terminator worth it? They get killed easily by plasma cannons and the like.
Screamers - If I had the money Id buy them. They seem to be worth their points.
Flamers - Pretty darn nice against lightly armoured foe. Ok against marines. In a tourny I'd take a squad of six+3 horrors, just in case. Thats something like 6-7 wounds in the shooting phase. If you get marines with bolters instead you will get 4-5 wounds if not rapid-firing (which is something that doesn't happen too often).
Rubric Terminators - kool guys. Worthless against too many powerfists though. Soaks up a lot of firepower!
Screamers are nice if you have some points left over and you want an extra unit. use them to help clean off a squad locked in close combat, or to "go long" and attack a heavy support squad. they are flimsy, so either get them behind cover after the assault, or don't get too attached to them.
A squad of 9 flamers can fire 27 shots every round! they make things like SM squads go away. expensive. but worth it. they also are durable with their two wounds
Rubric Termis are very expensive, and slow, but nothing but a rampaging dreadnought or wraithlord will be able to wipe them out short of three turns. they also can lay down very accurate fire with their combi bolters, and their power weapons speak for themselves. Just give the Asp. Champ. Gift of Chaos, and a chain fist.
I agree with what is said above.
I personally like the Rubric Terminators. They can take quite a beating, and seem like an excellent choice.
As said earlier Screamers are great, but make sure you always field them in numbers of 9 to get the summoning bonus. They aren't any good if they show up on turn four!

My elvish name is Maeglin Meneldur.
[COLOR=blue]I think that terminators are a great package. Give them an aspiring champion with sorceror for free and give him bolt of change. They have stregth, armour and invunerable saves. Shoot the bolt of change at a tank with loads of imperial guard next to it. Its entertaining. I got 12 kills including the tank that way.
