I’ve started building my grey knight terminator army and because I’ve often been tempted to field 3 Manticores in my guard army just for the satisfaction of carpet bombing my opponent’s army I’m wandering if it would be fun to run a list with 3 to 5 Orbital Relays in it?
True there is no escaping that I’d be paying 140pts for a single wound model but in additional to be able to bombard enemy models with a variety of ordnance you get the ‘bolster’ and ‘repair’ rule, plus you can easily hide them in a squad. So does that make up for it? Also I’m unsure about equipping HQ choices with them and forcing them to be immobile for most of the game?
So does anyone have experience in using or facing Grey Knights with orbital bombardment relays and are they worth it?
