    Genestealers and Hormagant question

    Hey

    Got a question about the fielding numbers on these two.

    8 Genestealers 112
    8 Genestealers 112
    8 Genestealers 112
    20 Hormagants toxin sacs 160

    or

    17 Hormagants toxin sacs 128
    17 Hormagants toxin sacs 128
    8 Genestealers 112
    8 Genestealers 112

    Seeing as i run two warrior broods too, the hormagants will atleast have a nice backup to walk with.

    Is it to much to have 3 genestealers? or do they work better then 17 Hormagants?
    What would you pick? I already got 24 genestealers so moneywise i guess i should stick with those for now,
    but for the future, better to switch 8 for the hormas?

    I'd stick with the latter. A big unit of hormagaunts is really scary for the opponent. Small units of genestealers tend to get shot down quite easily, so I'd just go with the second option there. If you're lucky, more of your genestealers will get to CC due to the big number of hormas soaking up enemy fire. But naturally its also a matter of what the rest of your army looks like, and what you're up against.

    I think i would go with the latter as well...Hormagaunts would be good meat for your opponents fire till your stealers get in CC and if he neglects the hormies, then he will pay for it.

    I would support the latter also. The large block of hormies will be more of a focus than the stealers, and can help them move across the board.
