Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi everybody, I've trolled this forum for a while now, but I finally decided to make my first post. The local place I play runs 2000 pts for the most part and I've played a list similar to this with a good amount of success, but I thought I might just post it to see if I can get any advice or maybe help inspire some other nid players out there.
- HQ -
Winged Dakkarant - 200
Snipeyrant w/ 2 guard - 247
- Elites -
2x Dakkafex - 114 = 228
3x Warriors - 118
3x scything talons
- Troops -
4x 8x Geanstealers - 160 = 640
- Heavy Support -
3x Snipefex - 189 = 567
Total Points - 2000
Model Count - 44
I pretty much hate gaunts with every fiber of my being so I've elected to play more expensive meatshields that actually do stuff in combat, but thats just me. Also I was playing 6 fexes for a while, but it always seemed like one didnt really have an impact on the game for one reason or another so I replaced one with the warrior brood for increased synapse support which has been nice. Also, the flyrant used to be cc focused, but I recently decided to try him out with the devs and it seemed like he was more useful, being able to inflict some wounds before rushing in and crushing face.
The general tactics that I've been using mostly consist of running forward with stealers / flyrant while firing away with everyone else, not that complex, works just fine.
Any advice or feedback would be great, thanks in advance.
But gaunts are the cute cudley wuddleis in a 'nid army
"The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?"
Looks REAL good. I love the dakka and the amount of rending. I don't see any major or minor problems for that matter. I have a few questions though.
-What with alll the flesh hooks?
-Have you ever lost a sniperfex to fire (I rarely do and never add defensive upgrades)?
Good Looking list although very light for a nid list.
Hey, thanks for the reply Enjoi, I'll be sure to rep you.
Also the fleshhooks were just point fillers, i had 5 extra points to spend so I just game them fleshhooks to round out the list, I guess I could spend these on something else, but at the moment it seemed like the first thing to do.
Thanks for the suggestion on the snipefexes, I've lost 1 in a couple games and almost lost a couple more, but generally I think you're right so I'll have to look into changing them around.
If you are having trouble keeping them alive due to your opponent concentrating fire heavily hopefully that keeps other models alive first..
but you might also want to consider either keeping one of the biomorphs you used or use Bonded Exoskeleton. Its expensive, but the extra toughness makes you invunerable to str. 3 and helps with everything up to str. 8 krak.
If you possibly have the points see if you can drop the flesh hooks for scuttlers for a squad of genestealers in a game. I've always wanted to use scuttlers and the "scout" movement bonus should be real interesting
Thanks for the rep also :party:
