I came across the Karmoon loadout termies mentioned in another thread.
5 Chaos Terminators
1 Heavy Flamer
1 Power Fist
To give that squad the extra killy goodness wouldn't Typhus compliment that squad really well with his Wind of Chaos/Nurgles Rot and his CC. DS that squad in with a P.Icon, let it put out its firepower and then go to town next turn in CC or move on to another squad.
Has anyone tried this
Haven't tried it with typus yet, but have done it with 4 term champs with lightning claws and MoK and Abadon
All I can say is ouch for the poor squad of boyz it hit.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
If I ever ran Typhus, then it would be with the Karmoon Special squad, since it's cheap and affords a solid spew of firepower that should help reduce the numbers of counter ranged hate.
Side: Not that it matters, but Karmoon's special termi unit is 4 termis, not 5, although lately the Karm Special also seems to be applied to a 5 man squad.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
I have yet to tried typhus, Ive done abbadon, and the results were very nice.
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
all the named chars have the same problem... No demonic runes! One pfist to the face and they are gone and as IC they can be singled in cc by the pfist champs sergeants etc.
No way am I going to run any IC unless Im absolutley sure that I will be able to kill at least 10 Meqs before pfist hit back. Come to think of it Typhys is prolly the only one I would ever consider for that but I would use alot more termies and then whats the point 800 point HQ here we go!
i would not preffere to use special characters as they are expensive, i would rather give them IoK and had a lord whit deamon wep and terminator armour and IoK (it is not much point in this lord but he is feared at the club i play at).
I ran that once with 4 termies. We devastated a couple of SM and SMTermie squads, killing the powerfists before they had a chance to strike back (especially with the help of wind of chaos and Nurgle's rot).
I did not deepstrike though.
A fun and effective HQ choice. Plus almost all HQ's can be taken out with powerfists etc, so it doesn't really matter (my dex is 15,000km away, but from memory he was cheaper/same price as my sorceror anyway), just gotta be a touch careful =)
Be nice to your enemies, it will make them madder!
Typhus is T4(5).
From experience with a sorcerer, Wind of Chaos helps a lot to rid yourself of pesky numbers on the way into assault (though it's nicer if you have warptime). With the spew of attacks from the daemon weapon and 3-4 power weapon termies, you'll probably have no trouble wiping a typical tac squad on the charge. It'll be those dang I5+ things with power weapons that like to hang out with the tac squad you need to worry about more as they can kill the termies before they get a chance to fight.
