... I completely erased some GK yesterday at 1500 points. Tabled in turn 3.
All-stars: Dissies ruled the day. 2 on my razorwing, and 1 on each raider. I will put these on every raider carrying wyches.
Razorwing with dissies and necrotoxin and splinter cannon. Wiped a squad and his grandmaster on turn 1 then ate half of his firepower. I will always run one of these.
Grisly trophies kept my wyches stuck in long after they should have died. I will always take these from now on.
Major fails: reavers didn't do jack. 6 with cluster caltrops didn't cause more then 1 casualty and didn't even take fire off of anything else. Not using reavers in the near future.
im sorry the reavers didn't do anything for you they are a staple in my army, and as such can put out insane damage. what did his army look like?
He tried to change it up and go with all ground pounders. 4 guys capable of orbital strikes and some basic troops. You would think that with all that infantry in the open that the reavers would do something.
i run mine as a squad of 9 and i dont always turbo boost them sometimes i just sit in cover and pop tanks and when the enemy overextends then i strike, with on average 10 S6 and 12 s 4 it usually kills about 5 guys in 3+ armour or 2 in termy armour either way its usually half a squad dead. were you just rolling bad or sompin? cause i cant blame the unit when i roll a total or 5 for the caltrops and 1 for the bladevanes u know?
If I want shooty, I'll use scourges or mounted trueborn. Cheaper for a similar bang.
I think against anything but marines they'd have done well, but 3+ and 2+ armor... It makes them underwhelming.
