Welcome to Librarium Online!
Long time critic, first time poster.
My club has a tournament starting in a few weeks, and I would like to hear everyone's opinion on this little baby. It seems the majority of my opponents will be either Marines (a couple of space wolves thrown in - never played against them) or Necrons so I'm looking at how these will handle MEQ I guess. The other players are at the other end of the spectrum and playing hoarde orks and nids.
Hive Tyrant - 215
-wings, warp field, 2x scything talons, toxin sacs, adrenal glands (+I), toxic miasma, flesh hooks and implant attack
Broodlord - 193
-feeder tendrils, toxin sacs, extended carapace
-5x stealers with extended carapace
3x Warriors - 107
-3x scything talons, 2x deathspitters, 1x barbed strangler
-extended carapace and toxin sacs
8x spinegaunts - 64
8x Genestealers - 160
-scuttlers and feeder tendrils
Carnifex - 128
-2x twin-linked devourers, enhanced senses, reinforced chitin
Carnifex - 133
-barbed strangler, scything talons, bonded exoskeleton
I used a list like this last week and it battered an ork player into submission (played kill points, I won something like 7-1) but how do you think it will fare against MEQ armies?
Basic strategy I'm planning is outflanking Broodlord and maybe the the other stealers (depending on amount of terrain) rush my flyrant at anything with more than one wound or an armour value while my fexes advance and aim at infantry, along side my spinegaunt-babysitting warriors.
Any advice you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.
If Google were a woman...I would so marry her.
it all seems solid enough except for one thing that depending on the rules you're playing is irrelevant or vital.
You only have two troop choices and only troops can capture objectives.
The way i see it is that because genestealers are, well, genestealers they will most likely get a decent amount of fire directed their way so the chances of them holding an objective are quite low imho.
spinegaunts without number are a great way to capture objectives though so get another unit in there somewhere even if its only 8.
Sir we have a lock on the Hive tyrant.
NO! SHOOT THAT SPORE MINE! OH GOD, ITS GOING BACKWARDS!
if someone helps you, give them rep.
