Firstly, they are insane when it comes to being durable. Transhuman physiology is particularly nasty when you use it on them. A chaos knight wounding them on a 4+ with a S16 gun with only 3 shots is incredibly frustrating for the chaos knight player, but incredibly satisfying for me. They can also stand up to lascannons, etc. Not to mention, having an apothecary near them to ensure they can heal up whatever damage is done. So it seems to me, that the only way for someone to get rid of centurions, is to drown them in a ton of wounds, rather than using high powered weapons.
Secondly, assault centurions are really cheap. But I hear the problem with them is that they need an expensive transport. Are Stormravens and Land Raiders considered bad or over princed in points? Because assault centurions with flamers and hurricane bolters are only 156 points, which is so so cheap for what they can do.
