Welcome to Librarium Online!
my friend i usually play likes to take a nidzilla army.
what do you guys find works best against em?
he usually takes 2 tyrants. one winged and the other with a venom cannon and a barbed strangler. the shooty fex has the extended carapace giving it the nice save.. ugh
he also takes at least two more fexs both decked out with twin liked barbed stranglers. sometimes he will make one melee oriented. oh and always the 2+sv
A lot of lascannons. Use the Take It Down! order with them. Also get a LR Punisher w/all HB's and Pask.
I think IG would have less problems with nidzilla than anyone. How many AP1 and 2 high Str shots did you need?
Oh, I forgot....vets and CCS/PCS w/3-4 meltas in chimeras or 9x vendettas. I could go on, but I'm hoping you now see the amount of firepower we have to deal with them.
heh...nidzillas...they can f*** your s**t up.
It really isn't fair...they are either CC hell or ranged said.
not that the nid player doesn't pay in spades for it, but it's worth at least its exorbitant point cost.
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
This is not a Nidzilla list. its is actually a normal list. IG has tanks, Tyranids have MC.
Army's used: Space Wolves, Tomb Kings, High Elves, Tyranids, Tau and Eldar.
A typical Nidzilla list will have two tyrants and between 4-6 fexes. My regular opponent frequently fields one of these along with some Zoanthropes and suddenly I have 8 MC's to deal with. While Chimeltas (Veteran Squad, 3 Meltaguns, Chimera) are quite useful, there simply isn't enough volume of fire. I've taken to using 2 x CCS with 4 Plasmaguns in Chimeras. One of those squads can pump out 8 BS4 S7 AP2 shots per turn when close enough, more than enough to take down a pesky MC. Add to that a couple of Vendettas and you're sorted.
thanx exactly wat i was thinkin.
i play daemonhunters and am going to switch to an ig parent list with dh allies. i love my dh but got bored of using multiple landraiders. need a change.
i didnt list everthing he takes just the basic. usually more mc's plus thropes.
thanx for the advice
just take lot's of plasma guns and lot's of lascannon's. A couple of chimelta's can drive 12" forward to down one on it's last legs from 12" away but don't use them on any MC with more than 2 wounds left as if they don't kill the thing they are about to die.
and on the 8th day god made a talking poodle and forgot all about us
The rep button is good
