While that's true, I'd like to point out that "unlikely to accomplish" and "impossible to accomplish" are very far apart.

It's good to hear fellow DE players having success with it, it's just not my style. There are just so many variables to it, and some of those are beyond my control, which I really don't like.

@Lord Asvaldir, you are right, they never last more than two turns, but two turns of in your face blasters are quite invaluable to me. Often the game is decided in those two turns.

Ultimately is very personal I believe. Their effectiveness really depends on how you use the rest of your army.

That's fair, it's hardly like a blaster is going to be a waste given how effective they are. I tend to use reavers pretty aggressively though, so I tend not to see the pts spent on them as being worthwhile. I would add though that the decision changes a bit if you were playing say a pure cult list or a a list without any kabalite units, any blaster platform becomes a lot more valuable in that case.

I am pure cult.

But have 3 razor wings and three raiders with lance, 3 squads of scourges with haywire. Hoping that’ll be enough. Hoping to mortal wound heavy infantry enough to give me a chance in combat.

How are you getting mortal wounds on infantry?

Right.

When you said pure cult, I for some reason excluded reavers from that mental list and got confused.
