Welcome to Librarium Online!
Long time, no postie...
Well, I've been slowly building up my bugs, and I just finished building Hormogaunt 32 and Spinegaunt 32. I've built my Ripper swarms, Stealers, Zonathropes, etc, but I'm not sure that I want to build my Tyrant of Warriors until I've seen the new codex.
I was thinking of doing my Warriors with leaping, ST, RC, Adrenals (WS and I), ToxSacs and ExtCar but when the codex comes out, am I going to end up tossing out $20 worth of minis?
I know that having the 'winning formula' is not always the point of the game, but I want to be competitive in games without having to re-buy tons of units.
Is anyone else having this problem?
Hmmm, with warriors i dont think theyre going to make them weaker, and they are decent in combat, so id go ahead and put them together that way. I mean, if your not going to be playing for 5 months dont put em together. However were hoping that they up warriors, and if its their toughness, theyll be even better in cc, so id put them together. that and then your able to play small games with them
Tyrant id put the body together without any guns or sts or anything. So you can still play with him but also equip him when the new codex comes out properly
You could also get the magnets so you could use different combinations, and then stick with a set when the codex comes out.
id add all the biomorgs, seeing as that way they look better, and then even if the codex doesnt have the same biomorph system they will still look cool.
just imo opinion though, it all depends if youll be playing in the next 5 months or not.
Of course if money isnt a problem put em together and then buy more :rofl:
Well, like arkangel said, they wouldn't make warriors worse, and I have heard rumours that they may make them have toughness 5! And hive tyrants are awesome no matter what, so put everything together
Yeah, I'm hoping they up the toughness, what is having 2 wounds and a 4 save gunna do against any heavy weapon? Blam instant death on a 2+ wound that's what. Yeah the codex wont be out for a while so if you don't intend on playing soon then I'd wait. But I'm pretty sure they are going to up the strength of them, not nerf them.
Thanks for the opinions...
I was actually going to magnet all the arms on the Tyrant anyhow. I won't be getting a second HT for a bit, so I might make this one the Winged 2xST monster we all know and love and then magnet the next one.
Where do you guys (those that have magnetic arms) get the magnets you use? My wife is building her Eldar force and she is holding off on building her Falcon until we can find the right ones...
Wow dont you love me? Anyways a guy, salamander i think, made the ht with magnets and that thread i belive tells you where to get the magnets and some tips for using em
I got my magnets from www.amazingmagnets.com
They arrived very quickly and seem to be good. Make sure you get rare earth ones, no matter where you get them from. They have a much higher strength than normal magnets, that topic probably tells you all that though.
the new codex is making me rethink alot of things and i think that carnifex's do get crushing claws cuz in the new rule book it shows 2 carnifex's with crushing claws one with ST and the other has a Devourer
And when he gets to heaven,
to Saint Peter he will tell.

I've served my time in hell."

those are probably being used as rending claws.
Why would he put them on now and paint them up when he wouldnt be able to use them for a good 6 months?
