Space Marine Review: The Hunter Killer Missile
Happy New Year everyone. I've decided as part of the new year to post a series of discussions here on various units or upgrades. Just a general place to discuss and review units. I'm focusing on Space Marines because thats my new army and fully encourage others to focus on other races in other topics.
Todays topic is "The Hunter Seeker" missle. I've looked at this upgrade for vechiles and tried to bend my mind into ways to use it. I actually quiet like the look of the model itself, a missle launcher mounted on my Rhino looks pretty cool, but sadly I consider this a waste of points.
For those unfamilar with it its an unlimited range, one use, Krak missle for 10 points. 10 points seems pretty damn high for a one shot missle launcher. Its problem is that its barely strong enough to hurt transports, has a so so chance against a dreadnaught and doesnt seem worth firing into a squad of MEQs.
All in all I'd say its a waste of points and not worth taking... but what if...
Stick one on a land raider, one on each of your two dreadnaughts (for example) and two on your Rhino's. Thats 5 unlimited range missles. On round one you could unleash a barrage on your enemies transports, or some heavy weapons squad for example that would normally be out of you range. Could give you an advantage.
So, whats your views and opinons on this upgrade?
