Welcome to Librarium Online!
What do you guys think of giving warriors winged and leaping? Waste of points?
All depends if you have the points, I've personally had great success with winged Warriors, thou granted I was using them as a distraction for my larger friends walking across the field
They never made it to combat, but they tied up two turns of shooting[enemies shooting].Something about them..rending and scything on 8 of them and the ability to move very quickly just attracted all the large ap weapons. My fexxs avenged them thou along with everything else that was neglected in their shooting.
Leaping, I think its worth every penny, the ability to move though cover faster seems like a waste, till you attempt to move through difficult terrain and only move 1 inch when you need 4 to assault.
it seems the only way to viably run winged warriors is with a screen of gargoyles in support, perhaps it'd be pretty expensive, but at least it'll give a core of units that on paper looks like it'd work.
and running the warriors as leapers gives the obvious impression to have them supporting hormagaunts
Leaping if your oging for a CC force always seems worthwhile, mainly because they are where you want them, in CC.
They are really an expensive first line of attack. hitting the enemy lines hard and tying them up while the genestealers come in behind them. As an alternative to leaping warriors you could also take raveners. These are very similar except they lack the Synapse. So it is definitely another option. Also leapers always take the enemy by surprise. A 12" move is a long way that people forget to take into account.
One last thing. You may not want them with guants as you don't want to take loosing wounds. Somehting to watch out for.
I don't like fliers. Way over priced IMO.
BTW: I run shooters so my words are not gospel.
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
Rock is cheese, Paper is just fine
WWP and other Dark Eldar how to
For me is a waste of points, The best tyranid warrior it's the shooty tyranid warrior, for everything else(CC), genestealer (or master card).

I dont care for the flying on a Warrior as you cant take the 4+ armor save, so I always equip them with leaping. Just personal preference though.
I'll take leaping warriors if I have a unit dedicated to CC. I use them both as second-phase assault troops and fast moving synapse. They server very well if you can move them across the board with cover.
Sir we have a lock on the Hive tyrant.
NO! SHOOT THAT SPORE MINE! OH GOD, ITS GOING BACKWARDS!
if someone helps you, give them rep.
I think leaping Warriors are good as support for assaulting units. They are cheaper and easier to use than the winged ones. The cost of winged Warriors really hurts them I think, it is very hard to get your points worth out of them.
I think that it is most definitely illegal, negating the need for a discussionOriginally Posted by tichy_2005
