well, being a space marine player all i can say is Argh to all those nasty close combat aliens mate, but personally, wicked army list. I'd say more hormagaunts, instead of spinegaunts if you could, but i dont think u can with that many point army can u?
space marines and tau will outshooot u so just ATTACKKKK!!
I would love to add more cc troops but spine gaunts are so cheap and great as a shield for my other units. thanks for comment. also i have a few spare points any ideas what to spend them on?
I'm not a nid player at all, but possibly drop something on the carnifex and get extended carapace for the genestealers as most basic ranged weapons will chew through that 5+ armor. Bolter spam would hurt and flamers would hurt a lot.
I've been running a similar list over the past couple of weeks. First and foremost is to give that broodlord feeder tendrils! Along with extend carapace on the stealers, that unit will thank you for it.
The other thing you may want to consider is dropping the enhanced senses from your warriors as the extra inch doesnt affect much.
Something that a lot of nid players (myself included) do is dedicate the carnifex to a specific role of either shooting or close combat. I'd drop the claws and give him another gun, possibly a barbed strangler. That'll give you a lovely fex that can either shoot at vehicles (I'm not too fussed if all i can do is glance. At least stunning a vehicle stops it shooting for one turn) or maul infantry.
With any points left over add more bodies to those gaunt broods.
If Google were a woman...I would so marry her.
Ive made a few changes as u said.I wanted to have a cc carnifex but also wanted a venom cannon to help kill tanks. the idea was he slogs up the field trying to stun tanks and when he gets in combat d6 attacks if im lucky shud be nice. i have kept enhanced senses on warriors as it adds 1 bs i think. thanks for advise
