does anyone have tips on killing a carnifex using space marines? the only way ive done it before was firing lascannons and missile launchers to ignore its save but it still has a 3+ invulnerable save. right now i had a battle with my friend and he managed to get his carnifex into close combat with my LRC and destroyed it after 3 trys. Can anyone help?:cry:

er what, a 3+ inv save? Jeez i wish my nid codex said that as well!! But no, you have the idea, heavy weapons will do the job. Assault cannons as well (obviously). Power fists in squads are also a good idea as well, quite the bane of TMCs if you have big enough squads.
Alternatively, if its a CC fex, just stay out of 12" of it. Not that hard rly.
Assault cannons, lascannons, meltaguns and plasma guns are all your friends when it comes to big monsters.

First off.... what are you using?
Second, how in the nine hells is it getting a 3+ invulnerable?
Third, unless he was rolling horribly he should have destroyed the LRC in the first round.
Lascannons are good. Against Nids I tend to get a Dev Squad with 4 Lascannons. It's expensive and some will say not worth it. But they are the only things that will hit often, wound on 2+ and remove his save even if he gets extended carapace. I also get a squadron of Landspeeder Tornados. The Assault Cannons and heavy bolters are murder on hordes, and really blow large holes in his bigger creatures.
Failing that, Missile Launchers can be useful, though if he bumps the toughness or especially the carnifexes save the effectiveness of the missiles is greatly reduced. Other useful weapons are plasma weapons, or melta weapons. Basically anything that you might use to kill tanks can be useful for killing the larger Tyranid organisms.
Though getting close enough to use a melta gun on a Carnifex you'd either have to be insane, stupid, or unlucky.
May your aim be true, and your targets plentiful.
This particular player is lying to you on multiple levels
1) The nids only have one particular ability that grants an invul save (a 6+ from Warp Field)
2) Carnies don't get it.
So tell this person to stop lying.

Yar, there is no 3+ invulnerable on a Carnifex. But they can get a 2+, rendering missiles pretty useless. Lascannons and assault cannons are your best bets, then plasma and meltas when they close.
what a lier. no wonder im having trouble ill keep using heavy weapons

Yea, what those guys said above. Also, Termies do a number on Fexes, and have a 5+ save still so you likely to only lose 2 per assault phase. I actually prefer a LST or 2 with Multimeltas on them since they can get withing shooting distance almost at will. You lose some effectivness vs. the horde troops, but its always the Tyrants and Fexes that throw off your plans. Also, make sure every Tac Squad has a Plasma gun, and your HQ units have Plasma pistols. Most people mock them but I've always found either they saved the day or the game was under control for me anyways. They can survive a wound and the chances of one occuring are only 1 in 18 anyways.
Also, those same LST with the MM on them? Alot of guys get freeked out by them, and sometime assault them with their MC's, which usually loses you 65pts worth of LST, but means the MC has wasted a round and is usually no longer in CC so you can either shoot it up again or likely by this point its even in assault range for your guys.
Or how about you use a Librarian with furious charge (from his sqaud) and a Familiar?
Force weapon his ass with that increased strength (so as to wound easier) then insta-kill. Whip out the smores and roast them over it's corpse.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
I agree with Mance, poke the mother in the eye with a force weapon.... DONE!Originally Posted by <E!_Mance>
