I would have to say a:

Daemon Prince w/ Wings, MoT, WoC, and WT Best 200 points ever spent. EVERY GAME when played properly he is eating well over his points and with 4 wounds and a 4+ inv he is sitting around for a while.

Then to top it off He re-rolls failed hits and wounds when in cc and when firing his ranged flamer template that auto wounds on a 4+. Just lethal imo.

Cheers,

Chaosftw

I'm gonna say obliterators. Yes they're not cheap, but DS them ear a tank and they tend to make their points back without trouble.

A chain axe is the best way to win an argument.

But going in victory points they are. You lose your entire DC unit after taking heavy losses you've won back what 25pts of VP? that makes them great to me

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Personally, I like the 5-man deep-striking stormtrooper squads with 2 plasma guns each, and maybe with a bolter for the sergeant. Sure they're only guardsmen, but that's 4 plasma shots at BS4 at pretty much anything on the field because of deepstrike for only 81 points.

I took out 4 Bezerkers (out of the 6 in the squad) in a 500 point battle that way once. 4 hits, 4 wounds, 4 dead bezerkers...
