    Anti Nid Dreadnaught configurations

    Well I was wondering if this Dreadnaught configuration would work against the little horrors!!

    Dreadnaught: 140pts
    Twin Linked Heavy Bolter
    Missile Launcher
    Havoc Launcher

    Now if I rolled a 6 for Fire Frenzy I worked out that it could lay 6 template and 6 HB shots in one turn, to me that equals lots of dead nids!!!

    I would think that a twin linked autocannon and heavy flamer would be good for dealing with any and all bugs. But for just swarm handling then I would say twin linked h. bolters and a heavy flamer. Followed by charging into cc of course... :cool:

    That again is quite a nice configuration, however the one I suggested was more a stand back and let fly model, not a burn and bash model!!

    Well then it's just a disagreement in playing styles. I prefer to get all up in their face. No matter who they are. Yes I'll shoot the hell out of them first, but make no mistake that they will be charged shortly after. To each his own my friend. :cool:

    Well, I found that Tzeentch dedicated dreads work wonders on Tyranids, as each one of them takes a hit before they strike in CC.

    SO I would suggest:

    Plasma Cannon
    Havoc Missile Launcher
    Missile Launcher
    Warp Flame.

    Once this guy does into Fire Frenzy, it will kill anything in sight, and it does not fear CC.

    Well, as a 'Nid player. The weapons that I hate more than any other is flamer type weapons. For the most part, 'Nids NEED cover saves, and, well flamers ignore them. I have long ago lost track of the number of dead gaunts and stealers caused by me not noticing the flamer sneaking up on me.

    -Causicating Flame
    Just a correction, it's coruscating flame. I'm just warning you because i got pulled up at a tournament for writing the wrong thing - they threatened to disqualify me because of "deceptive wargear".
    I have to say, that stand back and unload dreadnought is nasty, because it has the abilities to wound big nasties like carnifexes and hive tyrants.
    My dreadnought which i'd use against nids (which i currently use against GUARD, of all things) is:

    Dreadnought
    Twin-linked lascannon
    Missile launcher
    Mutated Hull
    Extra armour
    Havoc launcher
    195pts

    Basically, i don't like making him too powerful unless he's survivable(mutated hull), and the missile launcher and havoc launcher give him the power to kill small troops or light vehicles, while the lascannon and missile launcher can pack a punch against light and heavy vehicles, assuming he's moving of course. If he's not moving, I just blow the hell out of anything i see. I never give him two CCWs any more, not after my twin CCW dreadnought fire-frenzied and killed my daemon prince with eight combi-bolter shots! :o At least if he dies now, I can say he died to something respectable, even if he was killed by an allied dreadnought.
    The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
