They seem kind of like Chosen to me. If you gear them up, they can be a devastating precision strike unit, just like MidnightSun was saying. But as the player you gotta determine if that outweighs the exorbitant price cost. If terminators can fill the same role, and last longer, AND cost less, why not take terminators and either add in more models to your army/upgrades to other units?
Just my two cents. Take it with a grain of salt though, last time I had a SM army was 4th ed. So I may have no idea what I am talking about.
