I have, most of the time my overlords are killed with cheap fire because
no matter how big or small a weapon is, if it hits, on a 6 the over lord
dies... usually the biggest thing they are hit with are pulsars because of
the multiple hits they have to take.

Yeah, many people seem to overestimate the usefulness of the goliaths...
they are very good against eldar titans (as are any barage weapons), but
other than that, their usefulness of having 3 shots per turn for 450pts
isn't really worth it.

I love my thunderfires when they hit since they DO hit hard, but they
don't hit as often as firestorms and being anchored means anything that
causes them to move will destroy them.. (ie prime targets for doom weaver
