I was wondering which all you people thought was best in dow: the space marine terminator squads or chaos obliterator squads?
terminators if there against a squad of oblitraters cayse termies and have more guys and stronger
what Obliteraters have way more weapons than termies.
Termies are more versitile in forms of assault then changing to firepower (unless assault termies). Obliterators seem better against vehicles but in a fight termies seem to win whenever i play, thats shooting and assault, most probably due to the bigger AT weapons on the obliterator and complete Anti infantry on termies.
There stats may look similar, but that doesn't mean that they act similar. In my opinion, Terminators are better. They work better at fighting Obliterators then they do against Terminators. Obliterators are keen opposers of infantry and tackle them more tougher then Terminators. Terminators attack both Infantry and Vehicle's at a high rate. Obliterators were made like this, as stated in one of the DOW interviews, as they added the BloodThirster. Firstly, they wern't creating the Bloodthirster. The Chaos Marines would be the toughest and would be the main target in the single player campaign. Yet, time changed and they brought in the Bloodthirster, so DOW decreased the power of some of there unique units, like the Obliterators.
Overall, Terminators are Better, but depending on which fight your looking for.
:moved: to Table Top and Hobby discussion
obliterators are good for un expected attacks drop all of the ones you can have and then your opponent is dead so what im sayying is olitrators are good at destrying the enemys base buildings
ok in DoW termies are better but on TT I think that Obliterators are better because of the ammount of fire power that they have and their stats are way better Pts-70, WS-4, BS-4, S-5, T-5, W-2, I-4, A-2, LD-9, Sv 2/5+ and more weapons than you can shake a stick at. one last thing is me being Iron Warriors I can have mulitple squads of Obiltes.
one qeustion what were oblitraters before chaos? were they termies? but why would they be termeis if they have chaos termies?
the Chaos termies are choosen and the Oblites were probly termies at one point but were turned into Oblites by the Oblit Techno-virus.
