They are absolutely worth it! I have never had them miss and against MEQ they work absolutely beautifully. And the fluff about them is awesome. Just remember to have the quote handy.
umm who are the MEQ and wats the quote?
MEQ is marines equivelant so anything with T4 and a 3+ save.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Oh, and the quote is as follows:
"...And the great artificer Antioch raised the Orb up on high, saying 'O Mighty Emperor, bless this, Thy Holy Orb of Antioch, that with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits... in Thy mercy.' And the Emperor did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu..."
Ahem...skipping on a bit...
"And the Emperor spake, saying, first shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Orb of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it. Amen."
Mmmm, I can taste the Monty Pythonism
Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
does this mean the enemies of the imperium can take a vicious man eating bunny????????
Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
Why not throw a model or two into a rabbit cage and find out??
As for orb, works fine as long as it doesn't miss (my luck). Fried my Emps Champ. once, fried the poor guy tossing it twice, lost five marines so far to horrid rolls. Kills lots of bad-guys though (when it hits)
Have used the orbs of Antioch (holy or otherwise) with success against Chaos troopers. My chaos opponents usually are Nurgle and Khorne, so they have increased toughness and the 2+ to wound is very handy (and given that its a small template the opportunity to potentially kill off three high toughess marines before you assault in should not be discounted.)
But I agree that you must be able to quote something from Python as you are rolling the dice...
