I was looking at possible army builds for my IG and i have been reading alot about the pacific war and they used mortars during every assault that they could have them in. I just love the idea of mortar men out of sight just launching these bombs into the air raining death while they cant be touched. Think its just awesome mental image and we all have those in the game. What i was wondering was are they worth the points are the effective and how many if any should u buy?
Also how do u play them put them in the back alone to rain death unsupported so they could fall prey to enemy deep-striking or leave a squad there to guard? Lots of different ways to play. Please any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
