hey all this is for a tourney in december and i don't wan to waste my money so i was wondering if you can help me with my list.
twin pairs of sything talons
twin linked devourers
twin linked devouerers
twin twin linked devouerers
so what do you think
How many points is the tournament?
So your major CC punch is the Hive? You might need more CC.
I would also give the rippers leaping. I run lists similar to this. It should do well.
On you heavy's I would run 1 VC and 1 Barbed strangler. But that is just me. Good luck.
Great Devourer, another 'Zilla! welcome pt value would help, indeed.
i also run leaping rippers, gold they are. although my army is a bit cheap and all monsterous, let me say mine's a LOT slower than what you're suggesting. i dont know how to remedy a list such as yours, i dont include "smaller" things i use superfexes, increased T, W and Sv. (and gimme crushing claws!)
your list looks quite solid, and like Eldar4VR, i think it should do well-
tyrant is good, but flying with hormies doesn't sound good to me, seeing as the carnies just shoot. because he is "herding" homies, it's also easier to be reckless. not good for him. the hormies will mostly (not all, they're too fast) die and the gaunts will do the major damage, by tieing stuff in combat- although there is nothing but your hive ty to back that up.....if things go wrong with this assault element, it will go downhill from there. you can only hide the tyrant (only synapse) for so long and most people have stuff to deal with that(i would like to think).
if you can throw in a Zoan w/catalyst and synapse, i'd be happy! it's cheap, extends your synapse, and will have stuff do damage (especially horms or if u must win assault by Carnie charging).and he wont die by a single lasCannon shot
i love to use warp blast on the hive too, but mine are on foot.... and depending on what you play you wont always have LOS......
hope all goes well, and use your money wisely!
Sorry i had forgotten the pionts and it's one thousand. AS for the hormie's i used them because they are good at assault while being relativly cheap. AS foor the leaping rippers i have never tried them.
The more I look at your list the more ideas I would have for it. At 1000 pnts Zilla lists excell. We can bring more high wound and high toughness units then most armies can bring high st weapons.
Flyrant is probably close to 200pntsw, 1/5 of your total army. I would recommend something different. Either make him a Dakka Flyrant or go with 3 leaping warriors with rending as your cc punch. The warrior option is cheaper.
I would max out on elite carns and go with 2 stipped down heavy carns too. Then you can put maybe a zoan w/ Warpblast and synapse for support. Then fill the rest of points with leaping rips and gaunts. Or you can go real cheap and just make your 2 troop choices 3man rip squads, only 60 points and put the rest in carns and wars and zoans. Just hide your warriors behind your carns as CC counters.
Again I would go with the walking wall of fexes shooting the crap out of things then assaulting when needed.
I feel zilla lists are almost unstoppable at 1k-1.5k
It all depends on how zillaish you want to go.
at 1K pts your list is solid, i like the idea of a cheaper Warrior HQ but the Flytyrant is just- nasty! go for it
I'm suprised that it hasn't been stated so maybe I'm missing somthing but you have very little synapse for 2 guant broods perhaps drop them for stealers so synapse isn't needed?
