So I got steam rolled by some nidzilla today. 1500 points, he fielded 2 carnifexes, and 2 other things like that looked like carinfexes but weren't. I can't remember what they were called.
The Carnifexes have 5 wounds each, the other things have 4. I just couldn't kill them. Exorcist (maybe just not a good day for dice) shot at them every turn. I think I got 2 wounds on a couple of them. Couldn't kill one.
Flamers... need 6's to wound. Use divine guidance, so make my stuff AP1, but if I don't get the 6's it doesn't matter.
How do you guys suggest we deal with these things. The bug warriors, move 6 inches, assault A BLOODY FOOT. I was getting jumped turn 2.
Do you run Mech? Mech should be fine. Bugs have problems against all armor. Warriors are easily shot down, they have bad saves. MCs are whittled down by Exorcists, focus on one at a time, and when it gets to 1 or 2 Wounds, drive up, park so you can't be assaulted, and Rapid Fire it down with Divine Guidance. If you have some Meltas, even better.
Also, a Canoness with an Eviscerator or Seraphim with an Eviscerator can really hurt a Carnifex if you have FPs to spare. They have bad WS and I and lowish attacks, just high S. If one is left by itself, go get it!
Again I don't know your list, but for Mech I see few problems.
Nidzilla has to be one of the easiest armies for witch hunters to beat. I agree with what prince said. Just remember that you out range them so you exorcist tanks should for the most part never be in range of the venom cannons ,then the exorcist just smash aside those fexs like they're nothing. Also you have all that divine guidance shooting + meltas. Another thing I would like to add is if you can kill the monsters with rapid fire, make sure that you bring seraphim to accompany you and run them infront of you sisters so the monsters can't go around and assualt them, you spirt of the martyr to keep them alive then hit and run out.
The only thing that nidzilla has that can cause you a tiny bit of trouble is outflanking stealers ,but then again with mech they shouldn't be a problem. Make sure you keep you exorcists alive and you will probably win.
Yes but Genestealer Outflankers have a maximum range of 13-18" for assault. Standar tables are 72". You can easily sit out of range and kill them before they can assault it.
