Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've just been perusing the army list section and while doing so I have realised that very few people are taking hiveguard.
This strikes me as odd because for 50 points you get 2 rocket launcher shots. Admittedly for this they have only got a 4+ save but then they do have the T of a Hive tyrant so most weapons that hurt them won't give the option for a save.
To me Hive Guard seem like a steal. So much so I'd be tempted with 2 squads of 2 for a devastator sized payload.
So is there something I'm missing or are they something that a lot of other people are missing?
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
umm, i field a squad of 3 and they rip every single game. They dont need line of sight and the only way to get cover save is area terrain. One 1500pt game they killed 2 chimeras, 1 hellhound, and a leman russ vanquisher, thats pretty damn good for 150 pts. Im pretty sure other people are using them, they are really are a steal at 50pts a model. Trasport - medium armor killers.
I know not what weapons World War 3 will be fought with. All I know is that World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.
Yeh, Hive guard are so popular that some stores are sold out and won't get any till march. They are to good. Especially when you think of putting them in a Spore Pod.
Army's used: Space Wolves, Tomb Kings, High Elves, Tyranids, Tau and Eldar.
apparently the US stocks all sold out. was going to be a couple of weeks before there are any more
Hive Guard are hella popular
First of a hella wtf but they are very effective with a ranged hive tyrant some people dont like them because they arnt as effective in CC and wont take them because thats all they do with thier hive tyrant but they are some useful SOBs just people need to adapt away from CC with hive tyrant and lrn to range

^ many people might not be including them because they don't have the models yet. If I had hive guard I would definitely include them in lists, just like if I had another Zoanthope I would run 3.
I've got a lot of modding and painting to do of my nids as it is though so, I'm going to wait on going off and buying a whole lot more
I like the thought of deep-striking zoans to take out AV13/14. The Hive Guard are very, very nice, but don't fit the way I play. I kinda have a thing for S10 after playing IG for nearly a year. My third Elite choice usually goes to Deathleaper for his abilities. I wish I had more elite spots. :-(
'Thou shalt not refer to the Adeptus Soritas as "Bolter Bitches" nor shalt thou go anywhere near our sisters during the time of the "Red Rage," lest thou wishes to be the first human to enter orbit without the aid of a shuttle.'
I like em. Currently I proxy raveners or warriors for them. (Stopped at the local shop yesterday and they were out of stock also.) Nothing like hiding behind a wall and popping tanks as they go by!
I agree that they are great, but my Elites are ussually filled with something like the Doom in a pod and zoans.
