    1000 pts noob list

    I'm still in the middle of assembling my army. Here's a list based on what I have, but I have enough stuff to swap it around. My big questions are, in a 1000 pt game will I have enough durable synaspe to go around? Also, can I really rely on genestealers to do most of the anti-tank?

    EDIT: see below for army list (I updated it)

    I would give both of you genestealer units scuttle as otherwise one squad will get wasted and then the other won't be any close (plus you lose an expensive squad). So first drop the spinegaunts and add scuttle to you other squad.

    Also your basically going to have to depend on your broodlord a lot for you forward synapse so your more then likely going to have to charpe one spot in your enemies army.

    Also now that I count up the points you were 20pts over in the first place. So to clear up some points take the EC off the broodlord then you have 3pts left over though probally won't be able to do anything with it. You could also drop the rippers and add AG(I) to your hormagaunts as well which probally isn't that bad of an idea either as the rippers right now are point fillers.
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

    Thanks for the response, Lictor. Hmm... sorry I was 20 pts over, I was doing the math in my head. So, I gave both genestealers scuttlers, and traded the spinegaunts and rippers for some more hormogaunts, since they seem to be the most crucial to my genestealers' survival.

    Here is the revised list if anyone else would like to comment:

    HQ: 251
    Broodlord w/ toxin sacs and flesh hooks
    8 Genestealers w/ extended carapace and flesh hooks

    Troop 1: 184
    8 Genestealers w/ extended carapace, scuttlers

    Troop 2: 184
    8 Genestealers w/ extended carapace, scuttlers

    Troop 3: 90
    9 Hormogaunts

    Troop 4: 80
    8 Hormogaunts

    Troop 5: 80
    8 Hormogaunts

    Heavy Support: 130
    2 Zoanthropes w/ synapse, warp blast
    Armies:
    Tyranids: 2500 pts
    Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
    Witch Hunters: 1000 pts

    Looks good to me though make sure your broodlord is in a good position as he is your only way of getting synapse so you will probally be forced into the area where he is with your hormagaunts. So use your genestealers to attack anything out of synapse range.
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

    so ur broodlord has toxin sacs but not extended carapace... this he only has 4+ save u know. this may be a problem when he saves but if u think he won't die any time soon then he might be okay.

    I prefer the TS to the EC as most of the time the 3+ save won't do much and he has T5 so that helps a bit too. Plus that is why you have stealer body guards they're there to take the shots for him.

    Aren't stealers T4?
    in which case his T5 is useless until his homeys get turned into macaroni.

    The majority armour rules, however will ensure that he gets his save no matter what.

    Yes this is true but what I meant by that is it is usefull in CC where he should (well hopefully...) be in and most oppenents you fight him with will have power weapons. Thus your 3+ armor save does jack for you so better to spend points on his killing ability instead (since he also has power weapon attacks seriously who doesn't want to wound SM on 2+?).

    Ya after trying to reduce points in my army I just decided to drop it as I'm mainly using the other stealers as my sheild so I don't need to spend another 10pts on him for something he probally won't use (though their are occasions where I would love to have it).
