The fact is that Obliterators are the most versatile units in at least the chaos army, heck maybe even the entire warhammer.
For 70 points... proparbly the only down side... you get a guy that's capable of firing a great chunk of all man portable heavy weapons in the game.
In addition he's toughness 5, 2 wounds, and has a 2+ save, and not enough with that he's got like 5+ invul too.

That info should make him attractive to most chaos armies out there, especially the Iron warriors since they ain't got any limit on the number of obliterator squads they can field.

:blink: I thought you could only take three squads in an IW army ( ie. the three elites slots )

Hell yes! I love them! As an Iron Warriors player I tend to use 6 of em on a very regular basis (only in 2000+ games though). As Dragonslayero said, they're the most versatile unit out there. Whatever you want to shoot at, the Obliterators have exactly the right weapon for the job, unlike Havocs for instance.

yea you can only have 3 units but i think he meant that the normal 0-1 obliterator unit doesnt apply to the IW.
i'm sorry to ask but what do you mean by 0-1 , from my understanding you can have up to 3 elites squads and if you use this for obliterators you can potentially have 9 because squad size is 1-3. please explain if i'm incorrect.
thanks.

U may have up to three elites, but in the list it says that obliterator squad is 0-1. That means that you can take 0 oblit squad or 1 oblit squad, never more. Unless you are IW of course.
And yes, each squad of oblits is 1-3 oblits.
So...
Worldeaters, Death Guard, Thousand Sons and Emperors Children may take 0 oblits.
Iron Warriors may take any number (As long as there are enough elites slots)
Black Legion may take max 1 oblit squad consisting of 1-3 oblits.
The other legions Im not sure of (havent got the bible here with me)

I find 3 squads of 1 very effective in 1000pt games. Hide them amongst IW Tac squads ;). Lets me field a very balanced force. Here's what I use in 1000pts

HQ
Lord

Elite
3x1 Obs

Troops
3x5 CSM, BP+CCW, MoCU, 1 Heavy Bolter
3x5 CSM, BP+CCW, MoCU, 1 Lascannon

Heavy
1 Basilisk, Indirect Fire

Basilisk is behind a building, Obs hidden by Tacs.
