Welcome to Librarium Online!
Dose anyone take it .. it seem good still and i really like it on my lord.
It is good, escpecially against mutliple foes, but a bit too expensive for my tastes. A normal great weapon does the same strength but is a lot cheaper. if you know you are going against high numbers of high toughness units, then go for it, but it may become 70 points you can spend elsewere, like on a tomb scorpion, or another ushabti (once you juggle points around), with the killing blow, the high strength means that those 6's to wound are likley to give no save anyway, and against challenges the auto hits mean less overall attacks!
It used to always be worth it, until GW nerfed it in the FAQ to where you can't use its special attack in the magic phase (which is a complete 180 from the last FAQ where it explicitly said you could). Now, it's definitely overpriced.
Yeah...DoE for 70 points, or mundane great weapon for 6? Easy decision. At the same time, we have much better magic armors available to us now than we used to... I mean...2+ armor? Heavy armor with a built in ankhra for five points more than the ankhra alone? I'd pay 5 points for heavy armor... Anyway, the good armors all cost more than 30 points...so no DoE. Between the miniscule upgrade in performance over a mundane great weapon and the increased competition for wargear points, the DoE doesn't make sense any more.
