Hi people I have been collecting Nids for a while and I have 2 Lictors and they are really good with there I,WS, A and all their stealthy goodness but are they worth there points?
90 pts for 5 plus save in CC, allows armour saves except on 6's, and toughness 4(i mean T 4 for a nid elite).
For me they really havent been a good help especialy when IG troops took down my Lictor.
FOR FREEDOM, FOR HONOUR, FOR BLOOD
Lictors can come in handy when playing mind games with the enemy. I usually add them to freak out my opponent, and they aren't worthless in close combat as some people may say.

lictors are ~BEEP~ points
NOTE: Don't give out points costs...

Every time I have used them I've found them useless. When playing against them, they have been useless too. I don't care if my opponent has one, they suck so I can kill it with anything, possibly even a unit of fire warriors in combat.
well, i always hide them and my opponent gets scared and avoids any kind of terrain, it saves me a couple of pints on flesh hooks plus, when theydo come out, i usually go for sumthing that i know the lictor can beat.........

Lictors can be really helpful when you're in a game with Imperial Guard or Tau. They basically give the enemy two options:
A) Leave the Lictors and concentrate all fire on the rest of the army/big things.
Shoot the crap out of the Lictors, giving the rest of your army more chance of surviving.
However, if they choose choice B you've lost quite a fair amount of points, but if they choose A you can charge in the Lictors and eat them alive.
That's what I think. Overall, Lictors are quite good IMO.
Got to say IMO there only purpose is to fighten the other play into not going near terrain, as for cc Mmmm i think not ! they get blown away most of the time , points can be better used on CC warriors (Y)
If it lives it will be consumed
Licotrs, if placed correctly, can be devistating. Many a game against an IG player, I have put my Lictor just close enough to spook him into firing at it. On 2 seperate engagments, my opponent has wasted an entire shooting phase trying to take one out. They are easy to kill, especially with a 4T, but if you use the right cover, they can be damn near unkillable. And any fire wasted on a Lictor is that much less fire your Gaunts/Geanestealers/Warriors take. Hell, every Lascannon shot at them is worth it, because that's one less AP2 weapon going after your TMCs that round.
Lictors should be looked at less as a squad kill and more of as a fire soak.
