I'm interested to see how many people run Terminators in their battles, and what types. I've heard a lot of conflicting information on them - some people view them as a points sink, others value them highly - while some only run them in larger battles. Overall, I've noticed that Assault Termies are preferred over normal Termies.
What are your thoughts?
I start with space marines a my choice is simple:
grey knights terminators as allies
for + 6 points, fearless, shrouding, +1 ws, Nemesis force weapon really rocks, incinerator ignoring inv saves and there is possibility give them thunder hammer storm shield combo, capitain could take antideamon wargear and the models are one of the best in my opinion
They shoot and go on ini not last, shouding is not something to fear of but there is little chance they stay longer
Naw, in normal games I never, ever run terminators. Why? Because I run 3 Dreadnoughts in most normal games. I'm playing Blood Angels, so it's not like I can take Dreadies as anything but Elites. In apocalypse it's a different story, I'll run all my Terminators then, unless I go over points.
only run them if i have a 1500pt army or more, if any lower i think more troops is higher priority than getting a few expensive termies in there. but i do run assault termies
Only in games of 1750 or higher, and only normal termies as emergency fire/combat support where they're needed, and just to scare the opponent in general as they attract an obscene amount of firepower. Too much of a point sink for me in 1500 or less, as I like to run as many marines as I can. :3

Train of thought will be terminating at.. edible murder weapons!
I like them a lot, but they are mighty expensive. Still, I've run them in a 1k pt game before. My friend's IG had a Lemun Russ and a Hellhound, and the Terminators functioned well as a shield against the Hellhound for my Tac Squad on that side of the board (CML each turn at it and I used them and terrain to force the Hellhound to give up chasing my TAC Squad. Against the Lemun Russ, they didn't do much, except distract it's shooting for one or two rounds, as well as distract a las cannon shot and autocannon shot or two.
On the whole, they didn't earn their pts back (I had very crappy vehicle pen rolls), but they did not all die, and they were able to absorb some firepower that would have hurt had it not been directed at them.
But I took them for fun, so it worked out!
i havn't had the chance to use the assault termies yet but find my normal unit with my chaplain to excell on the field.

I'm trying to collect a white scars army, so I'm going to be running 5 assault termies all lightning claws, out flanking in a landraider. Only for 1500 or more lists though, other wise they're too expensive.
Tomb Kings, Marines, Eldar
In 1500pts i run assault terminators in a land raider. Usually all with thunderhammer/ storm shield as the are now amazing as the storm shields now give you a 3+ inv.

5 Terminators with a Cycone, 5 Terminators with an assault cannon and 6 Grey Knight Terminators in 1500 points. It's nice to see all those models on the table
And they never let me down.
