I understand that he makes terminators troops, but is the price tag really necessary? Cantor makes sternguard scoring and hes much less, and dark angels get deathwing for free, and share about the same point costs for the troops, except we pay a ridiculous amount for the th/ss.
Not jut Termies, he can make really good Khorne Berzerker wannabes too. 8 Guards with a Fist, a Frost weapon, two power weapons and a rhino for under 250 points. Point them in the general direction of the enemy, and with Logan's special ability you'll get 10 S4 PW attacks, 5 S5 PW attacks, and 4 S8 fist attacks on one charge. That's 5 MEQs killed on the charge by power weapons alone, plus another 5 MEQs from the normal attacks.
He's Jesus on a stick basically...
You know what's awesome?
Logan, Ragnar, and two squads of 8 Wolf Guard Troops with a Fist, a Frost weapon, two Power Weapons and a Rhino.
Almost 1000k points of killy, but very GOOD killy.
The new space wolf characters are amazing. Bjorn is the most survivable thing on two legs in 40k. If you do kill him then he becomes an objective!
How awesome is that?
Logan has some great buff abilities. In short, he personally has great WS a heap of attacks, great initiative, a weapons that serves as a frost blade or a powerfist depending on how he feels. No really, if he wants three forst blade attacks and two powerfist attacks he can have them, so he can run into a unit, hack down a couple of normal guys and then power fist the multi wound character. What on earth?
He can also choose to use on of the four big combat skills each turn, he's brilliant!
I have to admit that I am really starting to dig the sons of Russ. I need to start practicing my dags...
He was 250 in the last dex (where all he had was that PF or PW ability). So for 25 points I'm getting 4 special abilities and wolf guard as troops. Not to mention he's now immune to instant death. When I rank SM special characters I always have to see how badly they can beat up Marneus Calgar. So far only lysander, and grimnar have done it, w/o dieing.
Note: I do not advocate the use of Marneus "calgone" calgar in a game of 40k, as he is too many points of fail.
He has to cost a bumload of points, because if he didn't you'd have more room to fit Vanguard Veterans with fuzzy beards in your Troops slots.
You can also do nasty tricks with him. I've heard people mention Long Fangs with MMs in a Drop Pod and he joins, giving them Relentless. Not sure if that's doable, don't have the Codex in front of me, but if it is that unit can drop and destroy a possible 2 tanks with split fire.
He also lets you run a better all Termie army than Dark Angels and he can smack Belial around in CC so, I'd say he's properly priced.
