What do you think of the 1k Sons termies ? are they really worth it ? what is the size of the squad i should make ? do i take an aspiring champion ? if so do i give him some psychic powers ? I am planning of maybe buying some termies to have more CC unit in my army.
I find the rubric terminators pretty nice. They can take huge amounts of small arms fire, just watch out for those lascannons and meltiguns! I currently run only 4 rubrics plus an aspiring champion. Definitely take the champ and give him a chainfist. Then, he keeps his power weapon and can use either, a nice little bonus, it looks sweet too! Ideally, I would run 6, I think five is just a bit too light, six seems like a winner. Nine is right out!
Maybe proxy some, get a feel for them. They can be really nice: I was up against an armoured company once, the guy obviously destroyed most of my stuf without taking a whole lot in return with all that 14 armour. Anyways, my termies finally came in behind him, hit the rear armour on the AP 2 tank(executioner maybe?) and proceeded to dominate the rest of his AP 3 cannon tanks. They also make a great firesink for the enemy. Just remember you can't deepstrike if you take thralls.
Hope this helps.
P-Tail is spot on. They are amazingly durable and geared towards CC in a way no other unit is. I'd dare to say they are one of the most powerfull units in the game.
If you deploy one big unit at the beginning of the game your opponent will shoot at them like crazy and those boys can really absorb shoting. This lets you give the Champ Thralls and that's a bonus, attach a Lt with Thralls ofhis own and voilá Crazily powerfull.
Mst common is to Deepstrike them though, this robs you of the thralls and a bad scatter can really ruin your plan. To have some Rhinounits or HQ's with Teleporter Homer can balance that though.
In the beginning I used to gear them only for CC, but lately I have made sure the Champ has at least one ranged spell. If you use Bolt of Change you can counter the lack of Thralls with an Eye of Tzeentch.
Oh, that's an expensive champ some say. I agree but that's the Tzeench way - expensive champs and a sea of undead armours around him.
The Chainfist/PW combo is a great one, I also make sure to give him D. strength it adds quite some bite to the PW attack and it gives a very nice "overkillability" to the already powerfull chainfist.
Some call it a waste - I call it fun.
I mostly play 1250pts so I was planning to play something like a Lord(or prince), a Chosen of Arhiman(white dwarf), 6 termies, 18 Sons, Predator.
The Lord would have flight/WoC/Melee Stuff of pwnt
The Chosen of Arh would be used to transport the termies on the other side of the field instead of deepstriking, will also add some firepower and let me have thralls.
The termies will be for... killing?
The sons for some fire support
The Pred for some fire support
