so I'm going to be playing an Eldar and Dark Eldar combined force in an apocalypse game pretty soon, and I'll be taking a voidraven as it can have more fire power adhered to it than basically any other Dark Eldar vehicle.

So, I'm just wondering, has anyone used implosion missiles? They seem useful for killing terminators/grotesques/Tyranid warriors/misc. heavily armoured peeps and I'm want to know if they're actually that useful.

Any input welcome.

And yes, Eldrad will be fortuning vehicles will Flicker fields. He can do that.

There are several problems with implosion missiles. One, the only place you can take them is on the Voidraven which most people don't like. Two, they are only small blast so they will scatter off your target easily and won't hit that many in the first place. The things that you should be firing these at generally come in small blobs, maybe five, so if you scatter its a waste. Third, you can still take cover, which in this edition is mostly 4+, so half will survive. Fourth, how many multiple wound guys that aren't HQs do you really see? That would be these guys main strength but most of those things you could instant death with lances. Fifth, they cost 30 points each! A voidraven kitted with these will cost you 265 points, more than a Land Raider with armour 11. People will just laugh at that... Sixth, a Ravager with 3 disintegrators would do better for less and honestly a bunch if venoms will be even more useful!
So now you've seen some of the downsides, can you see why people don't take them. Really if you like that sort of stuff a hexrifle would do you much better as its the same thing without the blast but you can't take any saves. Do yourself a favour and don't take implosion missiles...

Yeah, looking through my list I actually had to drop it because I felt two archons, eldrad, Vect, and a couple of succubi wasn't enough models for a cc squad. So I dropped the voidraven for more special characters.

I just wanted to take it because 1: It's apoc, so nobody cares apart from taking ridiculous nonsense, and 2: I wanted to see if they work. I for some reason hadn't realised they were small blast. Eugh.

As it happens I got to see a friend use them yesterday, and frankly they sucked. At a 120 points for all the missiles, he could have used a venom with 5 warriors and a blaster. Or Just put in a ravager. What they actually did the entire game was kill 3 plague marines. Uncostworthy, and he would have been better with any of the large blast missiles. Of course, he had many other problems with his list but that was the biggest (after taking Vect at 1,000 points)
