Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK FELLOW HIVE MINDERS GIVE ME SOME INPUT I WILL BE PLAYING IN MY FIRST EVER TOURNEY IN ABOUT A MONTHS TIME AND I AM TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A GOOD GENERAL 175O LIST...HERE IS HOW IT IS LOOKING... WITH SOME POSSIBLE CHANGES NOTED AT THE BOTTOM
Walking Tyrant- ES, EC, VC, TL-DEATHSPITTER, X2 GUARDS (I MAY BE MISSING A COUPLE BIOMORPHS)
Winged Tyrant- ES, WF, AGI, AGWS, TS, FH, WINGS, X2 TL-DEVS
X3 CC Warriors EC, AGI, AGWS, TS, FH, LEAPING, ST, RC. = 135
X3 12 HORMIGAUNTS AGI, TS = 468
X2 8 GENESTEALERS EC = 320
Zoanthrope WB, Synapse= 65
Gunfex ES, EC, BE, VC, Barbed Strangler= 198
OK I DON'T HAVE MY CODEX IN FRONT OF ME SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE TWO TYRANTS ARE GOING TO BE BUT MY LIST SHOULD STILL BE RIGHT AT 1750.....I COULD DROP THE ZOANTHROPE AND MAKE BOTH FEXES BE GUNFEXES.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
First... you don't need to type in all caps. It makes your list harder to read, and people less likely to do so.
Your list itself looks decent... I don't like Hormagaunts, personally, they're too expensive to be a good Tar Pit, and they don't fare well against MEqs... but they should help if you've got a lot of Eldar / Dark Eldar / Tau opponants.
I also really suggest doubling up on Zoanthropes (i.e., taking two of them, or three) instead of just one. Not only are they painfully hard for your opponant to kill, but they eat MEqs alive from range AND provide cheap synapse, and I'd definitely consider dropping the warriors to take them (and moving your Dakafex into the Elite slot).
Bonded Exoskeleton isn't worth it on a gunfex unless you're going to be facing a lot of Dark Eldar. Go with Reinforced Chitin instead for the extra wound, which means it'll generally take more turns of shooting to bring your carnifex down... turns your opponant might not get with your Hormagaunts on the table.
sorry about the all caps.... i have to work in all caps and i sometimes forget to turn it off...but yeah i think you may be right about dropping the warriors and adding another zoany... heck i might even be able to make both fexes gun fexes with the points available....i also thought about the reinforced chitin thing, i guess your right strength 9 or 10 is still going to wound on 2's.
and you know what I keep forgetting that the weaker warp blast is ap3 ... so i have been letting people get away with saves on that one...i won't forget anymore.
