So what would you do against a chaos deamon army that featured 3-5 flying MC's along with one of those Shreiker units that have the re-roll on the 2+ invuls? You can toss on multiple fast rending troops as well.
Although the troops of course would be destroyed almost instantly by the amount of Broadsides.
Of course for nearly 40 points less you can take Crisis suits who have the same weapons. Although I have been out of it lately, perhaps there is a special rule somewhere for these fire-base formations?>
The Eldar, more than any other army, should not only look at the output of each unit individually, but the synergy of multiple units together and their role in the force as a whole. - Fable
