    Super Heavies...

    How do we deal with them? Glance them to death?

    We just got the Apoc book... my wife got a Baneblade and is anxious to use it on me. I was looking at the rules and oh man this is gonna suck.

    I will be getting a pylon I think but not any time soon.

    I think I may have to actually start using Heavy Destroyers now to combat these super heavies that I will probably be seeing here soon.

    You can't damage the structure points directly with glancing hits, so you'd only be stalling it. Try hitting it from behind with Wraiths, Destoryers or hit it with a Heavy Destroyer.

    C'tans? I haven't read the book but C'tans should destroy tanks like no bodies business.

    Not to mention the Deciever can sling himself across the field once he gets into assault.

    C'tan may be good for killing vehicles but they have to get to said Vehicles first to do it.

    Looks like my Heavy Destroyers are going to find a new sweet spot in my Apoc Army now seeing that its the only good range STR READ THE CODEX weapon I have to field.

    As soon as we get some play testing I will post up my thoughts.

    heavy destroyers to the rear should do the trick, just move them along the flank, side armor would work too.
    insert funny, witty, or wise quote here.

    Nice sig AnimeGod.

    Ya... looks like it.

    As much as I would love to be able to just MOVE my HDs to the rear... I don't think its going to happen with any sort of ease. I think this is going to turn into a hide in the Nodal Field and make my WBBs with them so I can keep shooting. I can't imagine that any player worth their salt is going to let those guys survive a whole game. Since I can only field 3 at a time... ya. I think what I am going to do is pick up some more soon and another Spyder to use with them. To bad the spyders don't move to fast

    Actually i have a question. I dont have my codex with me, but is it possible to give a lord a destroyer body and a veil and have him join the squad of heavy destroyers. I mean that is a point sink but if they can get the job done by flying circus then it would be worth it. And after you teleport split them up next turn and charge in with the warscythe while what is left of destroyers continues to destroy.

    If this tactic is legal it is pretty darn sneaky as nobody would expect that to happen.

    If you can do enough of the same type of minor damage it eventually starts taking off structure points. Its takes alot of damage though.

    If you're playing a full Apocalypse game, and not just a regular game with a baneblade, getting to the baneblade shouldn't be too hard- Strategic redeployment and other strategy cards (if you can get access to them- I'm not sure how as I don't have the book) should really help.
