    Howling Banshees, in my oppinion, are the best aspect warriors because of their masks and power weapons
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    Howling Banshees are awesome:

    they always strike first in hth, no matter what.

    they all have power weapons&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

    and theyre all 16(or was it 1 points&#33; either way theyre broken.

    Proven to be quite effective aginst marines.

    Hmm - I would disagree with most of you.

    First being that they&#39;re broken - hardly. It doesn&#39;t matter if you ignore armour saves if your only strength and toughness 3. A heavy Bolter can cut chunks out of Banshee squads - so I think the 16 pts per models is fine.


    Against Marines in general - Banshees are OK, but when facing Terminators or high save baddies - Banshees really start to shine.

    And now with the Trail Vehicle Rules out - Banshees are never used in my army as close combat is a drawn out afair and I personally would rather pummel an army do death with speed and fire power then hacking at them with swords turn after turn.

    In conclusion - Banshees were a great unit - now they&#39;ll become underused. Not a bad thing for 40k in gerneral though.

    Just my opinions though.

    i think the advantages like power weapons and always striking first is &#39;equaled&#39; out by their save being 4+ but thats not that bad....
    and them being best aspect warriors, in assult i would say yes, but in tank busting its a different story..

    I prefer Howling banshees as my combat squad. However if the combat is dragging on a bit the Banshees are toast, they are good for fast hard hitting attacks but for long drawn out combats Scorpions are your men.
