I know that it's a worse idea to take terminators in a 1000 points game but what if you play against necrons. these guys have very few AP2 weapons and you can kill a warrior squad in 2 turns(counting his and my turn) without giving him a WWB roll.
My question is "Is it worth taking them"
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Ive also have thought about taking them and to me,there is no right answer it really is your choice but i would say no, but i also am consitering it.
Terminators cane necrons, I once fired 40 shots from my warriors and killed...none, my dice rolls were average, I inflicted something like 18 wounds.
In 1000 points one 5 strong squads can nearly take out an entire army, they are worth it.
Be careful about using a deep strike/drop pod team in 100 points. That's a good quarter of your army held up in reserves. Now, this was remarkably bad luck for me, however I pulled the stunt once in a game with 2 1000pt armies vs. 1 2000pt army. My terminators didn't come in until turn 6, right after my teammate's Necrons phased out. It was fairly pathetic. Now, not coming in until that late in the game is highly unlikely... but you need to decide if you can afford to not have them come in until turn 4. It's hardly rare for that to happen.
If you want to use termies against Necrons, I pack em into a LRC (Land Raider Crusader) really mows them down. plus they are actually on the board on turn 1 and you have the fun of the additional huge volume of fire the LRC puts out. Expensive? VERY. Worth it? I think so.
A LRC against Necrons? I could be missing something, but that seems an awful lot like giving your opponent an awesome target for his gauss effect.
i play necrons now and if you throw them in a lrc the necron player will be drooling at your stupidity. think about this 3 destroyers at 36 inch range will usually take your lrc down before you can do anything with it. and 5 man termie squad in a lrc in 1000point game = 1/2 his points which will be taken out of the game right away
stay away from vechiles when facing crons
