As someone who has been on the receiving end, I have to agree. The
Doomweavers are annoying, but not earthshattering. I have found that
they are most effective at flushing out troops holding an objective or
other critical point. Sort of encourages them to move. But, as far
as being a game breaker, I don't think so. If I were plaing Eldar,
I'd probably take a few more Deathstalkers or Firestorms rather than
Doomweavers. The same goes for the Warp Hunter. Nasty...if it hits.
As I play a Marine/Titan Legions army (working on IG), there aren't
enough massed units of mine on the board to be caught by a wildly
scattering template. Just my two cents.
