Hey just checking to see how many of you guys use this model. I've been playing some big 4 player games with my friends and i always get put up against my necron buddy with his gauss weapons that are constanly giving me crew shaken or crew stunned. until he finally blows one up. Is it worthwhile using this model or just lose the tanks and load up on infantry with light vehicles and heavy weapon teams.
Techpriest is worthless.
The only good thing I have to say about him is he's an elite choice for $8 instead of, say, $35 for a stormtrooper squad.
In apo games the techpriest with all tech servitors can be used behind a baneblade to patch up weapon destroyed results, but in normal games worthless.
Yep, agree with the above. Lot of points for someone who can't fight and doesn't really do much in a game. Nice model though. I use one regularly, I just don't expect him to do much and am frankly amazed when he does manage to weld a battlecannon back onto a Leman Russ.
So what is a better alternative to dealing with Necrons who consistantly stun my tanks with there gauss weapons. Just field Infantry? Not that tech's can stop stunning. but they generally stun it till they can either immobilize or destroy a weapon.
The only time I would even think of using a techpriest would be with a honorifica: HSO with power armour, power weapon, 1 powerfist attack. Decent enough and not very costly point-wise but lacking in other regards like supporting moral, purchasing support teams, they cost a docrtine point and most importantly, he takes an elite choice, and trust me when I say that ANY other elite choice in the codex will have more value on the field then this guy.
Combat servitors I find "not very effective" and rather costly. Gun servitors are decent but very fragile, expensive and lacking in range. Better off with normal heavy weapons.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
I'm not refuting what you guys are saying. I'm just asking for an alternative.
What exactly is causing the glance hits is it warriors or destroyers?
If it is warriors just try to shoot them with the cannon before they get close, remember you can move six away and still fire your battle cannon.
If it is destroyers only shoot at them when you can really shoot at them meaning you can eliminate the entire squad so there isnt any well be back roll because there isnt a unit near by, battle cannnons and some hvy weapons should be enough.
Hope this helps
dude Techpriest with homorifica is the highlight of my army ive had him and 2 tech servos kick so much nid tail. The way i figure it if he kills/fixes his pionts worth or more hes worth it
What do you call a lasgun with a lazer scope?
a twin linked lasgun.... HA haha haha
yea, he's a decent combat addition even though his special ability is worthless. probably my favorite model in the army, if i could figure out a cost-effective method to convert all my guardsmen to look kinda like them i'd do a skitarri army.
