Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, let me know what you think of this army and if it could be effective.
3x Ripper Swarms
3x Ripper Swarms
Doom of Malan'tai
Old One Eye
Alright, so here's my dilemma. I can either A) Run the list "as is" with the 7 MC's, Deathleaper, Doom, etc. or Drop one of the Harpy's for 2 16-man Termagaunt squads to sit on objectives. I'm not sure which I prefer, but I'm kinda leaning towards dropping one Harpy for the 32 Termagaunts for those objective missions. What do you guys think about this list and it's effectiveness?
Here is my thought on it
because rippers aren't scoring units you wont be able to win objective based games
Im shocked that you didn't consider tervigons in your list they are harder to kill then trygons (when paired with catalyst) and cheaper too + they grant you scoring units. The first thing I would do is fit in atleast 2 Tervigons into your list under your troops keep in mind they are still MCs and that should run you roughly 500 (750 if you decide to run three!) points after you pay for the 10 man guant squads as well, which in a 2k point MC list is VERY reasonable. It also makes your list more competitive and increases your survival rate.
IMO drop the deathleaper save yourself the points for upgrading your MCs more
Your swarm lord is too expensive and to easy to kill without giving him some cover, tyrant guard should always be considered when taking this guy.
Regenerate for your tyrant is a waste of points IMO. Unless you have the extra points to dish out its really not worth it because essentially your paying for on average 1 extra wound that you might not even get.
I would also consider finding the points to upgrade your trygons to prime, Shadow in the Warp is very handy in 2000 point games plus the added shooting attacks and range is nice to have aswell after deep striking + it grants your more synapse coverage.
My next question for you is why no Carnifexs? as much as I dont care for them a Nidzilla list is incomplete without them. 3 MCs for a single heavy slot is a pretty good deal if you ask me. I would actually drop OOE or a Trygon and the Harpys for them.
As your list stands I honestly don't think it would do very well. You need scoring units, even in a MC list and I feel you lack synapse support.
These are just my thoughts though and I hope they help you
