Welcome to Librarium Online!
I want to know how you all feel about fielding a pure genestealer army. 4 brrods of 12 stealers, feeder tendrils, acid maw, scuttlers, toxin sac and extended carapace. Take a broodlord with a retinue of 11 nids extended carapace and go to work. What do you think?
I played a monstrous creature army on sunday against my dark angels friend, the broodlord and 11 stealers ate his entire army of terminators, 2000 point game.
It's a gimmik army. For 2000 points, you have too few models to mount a positive offensive. Far too many biomorphs, not nearly enough Genestealers. Genestealer lists work, I know. But too many biomorphs neuters your army. Feeders Tendrils are completely wasted on a Genestealer army - your 'stealers have such high WS, they practically always hit on a 3+ anyways. Also, Acid Maw and Feeder Tendrils can't be combined on a Genestealer unit.Originally Posted by Intell fluxThat's to be expected. Genestealers eat Terminaters alive. Not much they can do against Rending attacks.Originally Posted by Intell flux
That would be a mere 60 models at 1750 points. 60 dangerous models, of course... But nevertheless only 60 of them.
Terminators get eaten alive by Genestealers, that's what Rending is for... Same goes for Wraithlords for instance. But I have serious doubts about what happens when this kind of army meets Tau for instance, or IG.
