I was just thinking about it and all the gaming i've done (a couple years now) i haven't seen very many normal terminator squads. I can understand why people don't want to pay 40pts per guy but why not? My other notice is when people actually take them they never seem to use full squads. 400points is quite a few points I understand but why not go for broke and try it. I am working on my marine army right now and when i get done i'll be fielding 8 in the form of a termie command squad. I think the full squad will be something more powerful than many people have ever seen. 5 terminators, ok, but 10, :o wow!
Oh if any one was wondering i've got my chappy on a bike with a homer. I think when 10 terminators land on some ones door step they will notice.
What do you think? Has any one ever used a full squad? If you have how did they do?

I have never used termies in that large squads but IMO it depends on how big a game is if itĀ“s a 2500 points game I might have a 10 men termie squad deep striking. but otherwise it take to much points and because you are space marines you are quickly out numbered.
DonĀ“t mess with the dicegod
I used something like that once, long long ago, it was my first tournament and the first time i played 40k, I went with 2 full squads, one with two ciclones and the other with flamers, two scout squads... assaulty/shotty and a 6 man squad of assault termies... I think both HQ had termie armour, it was real fun i won nearly the half of miy battles (the opponents didn't appear) and got masacred in all the others, but i had a real good time...
Excuse this poor basques english level!! trying to improve!!
The models havent been all that great and the problem with them is that for quite alot more than a normal Marine, they die just as easily against plasma guns and alot of other things, taking them against Orks is a seriously bad idea too.

I don't think I would ever take a full squad as that is alot of pts in one place. But 2 asault cannons in a 5 man squad can really mess up the enemy. Although I would never have them walk, always put them in reserve and give your fast unit a teleport homor.
I would never take a ten man squad simply because I could split them into two squads and double my heavy weapons.

Terminators can be VERY effective against orks! The trick is to take assualt cannons and keep them moveing and shooting. NEVER get into cc unless your going to take out a dread or mob of killa kanz. The only thing in the ork armory that can take away thier armor is a kustom mega blasta which is a very rare ork weopon to begin with. A great tatcic is to deep strike kinda far behind thier lines and chase and shoot the ork mobz with lots of stormbolter/assualt cannon fire. If the orks run back to chase you then your normal squads in the front are safe and can return even more fire on the sccatering mobz. ussally the shoota boyz are the ones near the back and since they don't have choppas tear them APART! Most likely though the orks will try and ingore you but the termies will do too much damage for the orks to be able to overrun your marine lines! Has worked on me on a few occations.
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
I rarely use terminators anymore. I used to use them, but then I started to lose a lot of battles and I don't particularly like the models anyways. 1 five man squad with 2 assault cannons is the way to go if you want to cause some serious damage. They're like LRs. Both are awesome, but expensive and need to be carefully used. I tend to only use them in 2000+ point battles.
You call those cheap implants boobs?

i used a lib in termie armor and 5 terminators in my last game
they didnt do much, but that is because i didnt move em much
i tried to destroy a dread but i didnt suceed , and i go some
shoot on some chaos marines, but didn kill much, 1or 2
and then my IW enemy got a hit with the basilisk and took out 3 termies
BYE BYE !
but i charged with only the surviving lib w/ 1 wound
and killed of a whole squad, and then a vindicator
so he took his points back, thus the whole squads points
was a sink
