Welcome to Librarium Online!
i was wondering what everyone thought about taking 9 war walkers, all with scatter lasers.
thats 540 points for 72 str 6 shots a turn.
do guys think its worth it or should other heavy choices be in the mix as well. i think at least a squad of 3 is always incredibly helpful, but im just pondering the option of 9. seems incredible to me, especially vs nids or orks. but even against termies, MCs and the like, 72 shots must be really annoying.

Awesome yes but unless you got some fire dragons or guardians with a EML or Lance where is your anti armour coming from?
Though if you where playing vs horde army O man they would do some damage !
Keep in mind theyre armor is only 10. Thats pretty easy to take out and with 3 squads on the table your opponent knows exactly what the main threat will be and what to shoot at first. With that many points invested in your army if you lose too many youd better have a good mix of other units that can still win the game.
I think that it's alot of money and time painting thrown at a one trick pony.
I think people would be quite annoyed at you. Bottom line it'll only work once. Then no one will want to play you and you'll have alot of dust gathering war walkers.
I also think you might spawn some like for like treatment and watch as your opponents heavy choices rip them apart. Think about battle cannons, that blast, str etc vs armour ten walkers that have to stay close to each other. Any tanky army could prep to really hurt you. If you go walker heavy like that and then so does a Chaos player, those 3 defilers are going to maul you. Once you've fielded a list like that people are going to have no morales about fielding a cheesey list at you.
They are great units to have but 3 squadrons of 3 would be too much for me. Definately take a squadron of three and mag them up so you can change the weapon options around but perhaps leave the 9 war walkers to apocalypse.
Bleed Black Label S.D.M.F's!!
I probably wouldnt field more than 6 in any sized engagement (outside of apocalypse of course). Our heavy support option are too varied and useful to limit ourselves to a single unit.
