Default To manticore or not to manticore

ah the age old question, or rather my new one. As i was looking through my new list last night I saw that I could do something that i wanted to do with tau a while back, a missile themed army. My question is this, could it work, and how well?

It's all on how you build your list.

Yes it is a viable choice, four ordinance rockets on a mobile (not open topped) vehicle that can move and fire = awesome.

Might not win you the game, but it will become a hated vehicle by your opponents, more so than the Hydra in my opinion.
A dead man begs you to remember; a warrior's ultimate ideal is to lay down his sword.

The people have suffered years of warfare. Only the King of Qin can stop the chaos by uniting all under Heaven

I used once, is great against tanks and hordes, plus can be very strong against the most dangerous unit on the 40k world: the biker nobs, they will have to use only their cover as the St nullifies the FnP as is double their T and for every unsaved wound 1 biker nob is dead. I will fill this tank more and more now honestly
