I think the Sacred Band has their uses but the Defy Death is tricky enough to make work that their usefulness is largely situational. For starters, you're pretty much wasting points unless you've got an all-disciplined army with Parmenio around and Parmenio has pretty lousy stats for 90 points.

Then you'll need Marcus or Valguard to do the heavy lifting since Parmenio's job is to baby-sit the Band. When it comes to range, the only common ranged squads you can have (and remain all-disciplined) are Samurai or Roman archers. That makes for very limited building options.

They aren't a squad you can plop on any old map and scenario and have them play competitively, but then again, thats what I really love about Heroscape; the units you draft are just as important as how you play them and how the dice roll.
