alright, i've had all these models lying around that i've been waiting to use. while it's not really a list, i have a general idea of what i want to do tactically. the list was generated based on the models i have on hand, though i have a number of gaunts and stealers, et cetera. in any case it looks something like this:
Shooty Hive Tyrant
2 Brood Guard
Winged Hive Tyrant
Brood of Shooty Warriors?
2 Ripper Swarms
Brood of 9 Winged Warriors
Brood of 4 Raveners
1 Red Terror
Brood of 3 Zoanthropes
the idea is to assault with the winged ht and warriors while the shooty tyrant and carnifexes hang back and shoot while the tyrant guard absorb charges. i have some questions though: should i have a brood of shooty warriors and if so how big of a brood? also, i don't know which shooty weapons are best, for the tyrant, the warriors (if i take any shooty warriors), and for the 'fexes. i plan on giving the assault units rending claws and scything talons. might i need a second unit of winged warriors? if so, should i have two units of 9 or fewer? i'm mainly interested in the theme of the army and its models - i'm no power gamer, that's for sure - but i'm worried i might get crushed every time i field this army. any thoughts or help would be very much appreciated. thanks, everyone.
Looks very good, but this need to be in the list section.You need at least 6 ripper swarms for this to work.
You asked about shooty warriors. A brood with devourers and a barbed strangler or a brood with deathspitters and a venom cannon. The devourer brood will take down infantry fairly well and thier barbed strangler can pin. The deathspitters with the venom cannon can aim at tougher targets or tough infantry.
You may want to twinlink thier weapons by buying two of them but it's expensive. Extended carapace is a good choice for them and so is toxin sacs.
Obviously they will need enhanced senses.
