Why not? It's very point efficient cc unit either in termie or jp. I always take one, it works pretty good even on itself.

It's worth depends on the legion you play. I wouldn't have a place for them in my IW army.

But why though? Even terminators?

-  free slot

- WS5

- +1W on one dude who also makes squad fearless

- annoying chosen warrior shenanigans

- only 5pts more than a termie squad ;)

When my opponent reaches my lines I already screwed up, that's why. B)

It all depends on the match-up, the mission, and most of tall the Legion you're playing. 

 

For some Legions (and in combo with certain RoW on top of that) Command Squads are innately awesome.

 

But a retinue isn't a retinue, and depending on the task you have in mind for them, a highly-customisable Vet Tac squad or even a Seeker squad (or a Legion specific variant !)  might work better to supplement your HQ and / or you list / strategy. 

 

And, let's not forget, Command Squads are non-scoring (except for UM).

They are cc unit mainly, and I agree they are largely list/playstyle dependant. However any legion without dedicated cc unit just can't go wrong with command squad, that's it msn-wink.gif

 

Gorgoff, you have pure shooty list? I don't quite understand what you mean. Do you always Ironfire? :D

Had one game so far and it was a desaster. His psychic bombardement plus crazy toughness was too much for my dudes. But I don't think that five terminators would make any difference to be honest. More so a Nullificator.
And way more firepower.
Next time I bring Phosphex.

I played twice.
First game was with my new Militia, which was a massacre. I was done in turn two.

But lessons where learned.
He cannot put the warp rifts in 12" to one another, 6" to a table edge and in 12" to a mission marker. Try to capitalize on that fact.

Game two was with my IW and I tried to tailpr my list a little bit but it wasn't very successful either. Contemptors are very good if they manage to reach CC. But you have to have some sort of anti air because of the flying MC. Those will fly around and shoot walkers to pieces with S9 armour bane in the first rounds.
Obviously every gun which has fleshbane or is poisened is very good because troops with T5 and two wounds are VERY hard to kill. If your opponent takes psychic daemons a Nullificator makes sense because he'll protect at least one unit against those powers.
Some kind of CC counters should come in handy too

Yhe fact that they come piecemeal and can't charge allows you to concentrate fire each turn

Hello vindicator my old friend
Has to be in 24" and can be killed rather quickly by flying MC. In my game he killed four lesser demons before he died.
