Hello all. I did a quick search and didn't get any hits, so I figured I'd ask the question in the subject:
Have any of you ever used the Deathstorm Drop Pod from Forge World (and/or fought against it)? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
I ask because I'm currently in the planning-stages of a drop-spam marine army (I've been an Eldar player since third-edition, and think it's high-time to start a second army), and the Deathstorm seems like the best-fit heavy support choice. The only other fluffy choice seems to be a Thunderfire cannon (but I'm not a big fan of that model), or a Dev squad (which doesn't seem all that cost-effective in a pod).
Looking at the rules in the IA2 errata on FW's website the Deathstorm seems like it's horribly overpowered and/or under-priced. 75 points for something that fires multiple times with a Whirlwind-calibre template at every single unit within 12" just seems... well, wrong (but wrong in a very good way if you're not on the receiving end of it). Is it really that bad?
Any insight into the Deathstorm would be appreciated. Thanks a lot for the help!
