I'm going to play in a Tourney for the first time in a few weeks and have all sorts of crazy ideas running through my head. I have a fair amount of experience playing just nothing official. The tourney is a team game with each player having 1000 points. (2k a team) I'll be playing vanilla marines and my friend will be playing Eldar. We've decided to use mobility and all mechanized units as our concept for a list. Our core is pretty solid, 4 troop choices with decent support, Sternguard with a Librarian to kill stuff, Farseer casting support buffsetc.
But here it is, I really want to bring my Redeemer to the fight. I figure with a squad of guys in there, doesn't really matter which, along with the Falcon and Wave serpent we'll have a tight formation of armor and those nasty flamestorms to BBQ anything in range. I know its a risk but at that point value heavy units like that are going to be limited which makes me wonder if people will actually be able to counter it. I know it only takes one well placed melta blast to kiss the raider goodbye but it can also melt a whole marine squad with ease a turn.
As I mentioned I'm not familiar with the tourney scene and I'm not trying to make the one list to kill all others. If anything I'm trying to pick one unit that will be difficult to deal with that has a lot of killy power and keep up with Eldar skimmers being able to fire at least 1 weapon moving full speed. Having 1 raider between 2000 points isn't that big of a stretch but I would like to hear some oppinions specifically relating to tournaments. Thanks!
Tyranids don't get Land Raiders.
Are you playing a mini 1000-pt Apocalypse game?
Hehe oops. I'm also a nids player, wrong forum. Using force org.
This is a rather odd question to be posting in the Tyranid section, seeing as we don't get armor, period. Just remember that there will probably be people who share your point of view in a tournament. Otherwise I would direct you here: Space Marines - Librarium Online the space marine forums.
I tried to move the thread but could not find a way so... feel free to kill this. I already created a new one in the marine forum.
Sorry! *throws a marine snack to all the nid players*
Om nom nom...
As a curiosity, in Apocalypse Games, can you legally stuff Gaunts or Warriors or Zoanthropes into a transport?
