Ah yes, but Fairy lasts for SOOOOO long. You never get to use it in time.

I'm fine with the size of the Deathstrike. Already it's a bit of an oddball unit as you're basically firing an ICBM at extreme danger close. Not making the missile MASSIVE at least justifies its usage, a little. :P

And the Manticore looks utterly awesome.

I like them both a lot, and would love to add them to Zaagblitz's Waaaagh! However the new Russ kit with a gun barrel extension has stolen its place.

I really like the models.

'General, our scud storm is ready', lol I still play zero hour.
I don't see the point of a searchlight on a manticore and even less on a deathstrike. I mean, if you can paint the target with a searchlight, then you are too damn close.

It will be a good setting for a Dark Heresy RP game, where one has to stop the Deathstrikes from launching and destroying Imperial Forces.

Might be handy for painting saboteurs before you spray them with the hull mounted bolter

I think you'll find the Hydra turret is 4 auto cannons stuck on a Manticore turret, but anyway.

Owning both, FW manticore is better (especially for my army). And the Deathstrike is WAYYYY too small.
