Hi folks. I recently bought some chaos cruisers from our esteemed friend Arklite so I've started myself on BFG.
The one issue that I've come across while making lists is the Carnage/Murder question.
I quite like the range of the Murder, but it seems like the Carnage is more versatile. The fact that the two use the same model is also pretty handy.
What are everyone's thoughts on this?
Personally i prefer the carnage for its pottentially massive broadsides.
Sure the murder has lances, but their only forward facing, and you'll get plenty on your other ships (well, if you take loads of devastations and hades like me)
The carnage's advantage is that it can concentrate fire power in either arc. It can also trouble eldar far more effecively in its front arc.
I've never used murders, because ive always had hades in my fleet, ive seen them played though and they can work very well if paired with another ship. I just think they're far more vulnerable alone than a carnage.
welcome to bfg and good hunting...
The next time I play a non Eldar fleet I will try to field a murder duo. The long range of their prow lances gives the opportunity to lock on from the off.
I also want to see how a Desolator battleship works. The principle seems to be the same (a good number of long range lances) and the staying power of a battleship gives a distinct advantage when absorbing the incoming torpedoes an the like.
