After the revamp of the tartaros terminators in the prospero box (a little bulkier which I really like) I've considered trying out this formation. Never been a huge fan of indomitus pattern termies with the boar heads. But new aesthetics (and cheaper investment) got me pumped.
But while everyone seemed really impressed with this formation at realease to me it doesn't seem very easy to use.
It lacks reserve manipulation and any form of scatter reduction so to actually get into reasonable assault distance is a bit of a gamble. That everyone arrives at the same time is a bit of a double edged sword.
Anyway I'm thinking 3 units of 5 assault marines: one unit of 5 hammernators and two with hammer sergeant (handy with a 3++) and 4 lightning claws. Shooty terminators even with double shots just aren't very scary.
To get them on target I'm gonna try dropping in 2 drop pods with locator beacons and probably dreadnoughts. The new supplement screwed up my assault melta pod spam sadly. But at the very least it forces the enemy to stay clear of my pods or waste high strength shots to destroy them.
The second thing to consider is what kind of units they're supposed to deal with. Without the charge bonus and furious charge their utility is limited as far as monster hunting and vehichle wrecking goes. The hammernators can still deal with vehichles of course, but I'm a bit uncertain of their potential against say a wraith knight.
How would you guys run these?
