Hello, I was just thinking that when tailored witch hunters can beat a double lash army 9 out of 10 times. First is obvious most WH armies are mech'd. This hurts lash armies in the first place.
But something else thats not used very often caught my eye that would make any lash prince shake in his boots is giving all of your VSS Bolter Stake combi weapons.
Typically with 5- 6 of these in your army for 50 - 60 points could easily 2 kill two lashers a turn with the help of bolters.
Now I don't promote tailoring but It was just an idea.
Also I forgot, SoB units getting 5+ saves against psyker powers.
meh, and marines can be tailored to kill daemons, and tau can be tailored to kill sisters...
im assuming lasher is another term for psyker?
Suffer not the heretic. That's right, I'm looking at you Astartes Librarians.
I think you'd want to include an Inq. Lord with Psychic hood, or take a GK Brother-Captain with psychic hood to make him work for his psychic lashes. Then after that, the SoB's still get their 5+
if you REALLY wanted to tailor, take a Culexus asassin. or the callidus if you want a more well-rounded assasin.
The power generally wrecks foot slogging armies but is very weak fighting mech'd armies.
Sorry to be dense, but does "Lash Army" mean a Daemon-Heavy army, or does it mean something more specific?
Sisters Repentia: Wow what beautiful models! Wow what terrible rules! -stjohn70
lash of submision: move enemy units x inches. usualy used to either place them in a nice circle for plasma cannoning, or for tossing an ork unit back further than it moved
2 main 'i must win at all costs' lash armies are the combat slaanesh, where 2 princes with lash, lash you forward into short range & either charge you with khorne berzerkers, or rapid fire you with marine armour ignoring tzench bolters.
the 2nd one, is the more powerfull, and that is 2 demon princes with lash, backed up by 9 obliterators, so with that many str 9 weapons, rhinos don't last long, then they get lashed, followed by burny plasma death
I know that this thread is a bit old now, but I would like to dust off the cobwebs as I think it does have a fair bit of merritt.
My other army is indeed Chaos Space marines. In fact it is a Slaaneshi lashing, Tzeenchy inforno bolting force of death that I must say is at it current build is undifeated. I for one know how good lash armies can be and I think gauss_storm has a good point here. I have yet to play against Adepta Sororitas, but I think that a Mech list has a very good chance of a Lash army get frustrated.
1) Lash can't target tanks = Girlies in rhino's and Immolators are cool here
2) 5+ against psycher powers = WHAO...Now we're talking about a psycher that has to take two tests to lash our ladies of the faith.
3) Bolt-stake cross bows = Not a horrible idea. I realize that it is a little bit of tayloring, but not all of that much if you think about it. Daemon Prince is the target for a lash list in this post, but there are other psychers out there. Space Pixies have their's and we all can agree that they are heretics that can use a bit of the Emperor's guidence. How about Nids? Zoenthropes are adept at killing rhino's and Bolt's could be good at taking out this multi would monster.
4) You take Serephim right? Of course you do. It is standard practice for many to take two infirno pistols. Twin-linked Melta vs T5 Daemon Prince. Now we have a nut that is not all that tough to crack
All in all think that a standard SoB mech list can and will do all sorts of evil things to a beardy Lash list
