i'm playing a apoc game against nids and i've seeen the army and its got about 5/6 carnis i was thin king of either getting ghazzghkull and a few meganobz or 2 big units of sotrmboyz and zagstrukk what shall i do?
ok, i am a nid player myself and i have to tell you, its not THAT hard to get rid of a few carni's. just one thing-if its a shooting carni, assault it, if its a combat carny, shoot that thing with those warp cannon thingies that orks get. try not to get in combat with cc carnies as they cannot be braught down as easily as you think, ESPECIALLY id it is a godfex, if its a shooting fex, take out the ones with the barbed stranglers first unless one with a VC is threatening one of your vehicles, other that that they are pretty slow compared to other nids so kill the closest ones first.
Carnifexes aren't that scary, especially in apocalypse. They're more of a shooty unit, overall. The only trouble you'll have is with the ones that are toughness 7, which your normal boyz can't hurt unless they charged.
They don't have nearly enough attacks to be too threatening to boyz. They'll be more of a threat to vehicles. As for destroying them, the powerklaws krump all. Just throw a few powerklaws at them and they'll be toast.
The best unit for dealing with monstrous creatures, however, are killa kans with kustom mega blastas. They can roast them in the shooting phase and krump 'em in the assault phase. The nids don't stand a chance. ^_^
What I'd really be worried about when fighting nids are the genestealers and hermagaunts. If they assault you, then your boyz don't stand a chance. You have to hit them first. The outflanking genestealers are particularly devastating this way.
oh because in my my local store ahad about 3 or 4 killa kans in my army and they had about 3 carnis and the killa kans were cut my their scything talons maybe i'd prefer the carnis shooty cheers guyz
That gamme'll take ages! 2 swarmy CC armies in apocalypse.
Vampire Counts Progress Log [W:2 D:1 L:1]
Yeah, you're going to lose some killa kans in the process, but they're still the most cost effective option, unless the carnifexes are maxed out with as many attacks as possible, then powerklaws are better.
Still, the relatively low number of attacks means that Orks will eventually overwhelm the Carnifexes, you'll just lose some guys before getting there. With Orks, everything has to be expendable. That's the way they work. ^_^
