Just wondering, is holocaust worth it? It attacks every1 under an ordanance blast template, fair enough. but the fact that it gets your own guys too? that sucks.
Is the general consensus that the terminators will pass their armour save, so hopefully it'll be more damaging to the enemy? Or is it only useful when getting swamped by weaker units such as orks or guard?
Ta for the help
I don't use it only because i tend to be over protective of the emporer's finest

Well you only have to position it adjacent to the BC/Hero's base. So theoretically, you won't hit more than one or two of your own, if that many. Plus, if you're in a combat that involves a lot of friendlies and not a lot of foes, just don't use it that turn.

Id say Holocost is worth it , In a recent 1500 point game my brother had his Inquisitor with Holocost wiped out half a Tau army by itself
Ask not the ruleboys a question for they shall give you three answers each true and terrifying to behold
Yes, I would suggest Holocaust. I like it for my Inquisitor. Tis a joy to to waltz up to the offenders of good, outstretch you hand and call forth an eruption of divine fire upon the enemy.
yes i agree with Megalomaniac on this one take as many troops as your can don't splurge at all!! the DH have few enough models on stuff there anyway
You should decrease your numbers as you are aqlomost always outnumbered and against some armies that is a bad thing
personally I take it, I find it helps make up for the lack of numbers we have. I thinks its cost effective, and odds are your termies are going to make the save so I don't worry to much about them either. In alot of ways it keeps my guys from being stuck in quite as long and they can move on that much quicker to the next unit.
now that is EVIL
I have found it worth it. Its just soo fun to wait until the end of combat, when your opponent thinks the beatings over and then SMACK holocaust on his big ol' mob of gaunts, orcs, etc. Fun stuff.
