Well if anything at least its very straightforeward. That's an awful lot of Terminators trudging around. I have to tell you, if I was playing against this I would just try to avoid the big hammer guys as best as possible while picking on your tactical squads. Given that you are all footslogging, it's not very hard to keep a distance from the big brutes if that's really all you're opponent is worried about. You don't have the numbers to herd an opponent towards them, and they are too slow and expensive to spend the whole game chasing after something to charge.

I guess what I'm thinking is that the 10 thunderhammer terminators are huge overkill. If that's what you were going for then go for it and good luck. I think you'll find that anyone with any mobility will just be trying their best to stay out of charge range of them, leaving half your army (pointswise) trudging around frustrated. I'm sure they will pound the hell out of ANYTHING they actually get to charge, but its getting in that position that will be a problem.

Now if you could drop a couple to put them in a Land Raider (the 16 marine/8 termie kind), that's a different story. That way you can corner people and drop out and assault, plus your 'transport' (funny thing to think of a landraider as just a transport) is very hard to kill, so they can mount back up and do it again.

Except they can't charge when they deep strike as far as I know of, and you have to worry about scatter, enemy psykers nullifying it, and warp accidents. That's not exactly the most reliable form of transportation. Like I said though, good luck with that. I don't think anything exists that won't be crushed by 10 thunderhammers hitting them at once, if you do actually get them a charge on anything it would be a sight to behold.

I played 2 games yesterday. Both massive wins. The first was a small planetstrike game, i was the defender against space wolves. I wiped out his army, only losing 2 terminators and 3 space marines.

In the other game, i also wiped out his army, but he focussed on my terminators (As you would expect) and by the end of the game i only had 1 left with the librarian. But i had killed: 1 Landraider (essentially, it was useless), tigurius, 1 devestator squad, 1 tactical squad, 1 scout squad with telion. All in all it was a very good day, and a very fun list to use.

I think people tend to underestimate the survivability of TH&SS termies... despite being satinfront of the enemy for a turn or two, they handed out the woopass. I think the worst loss i had was three termies from a single frag missile!
