I'm fairly new to Tyranids but i was wondering about the effectiveness of devil guants and wanted to know if they were worth there points in a 1000 point match, if so how may should i field?
"They are coming! I feel them scratching inside my mind, scratching, running, so many... so many voices. They"re coming for us - flesh, body and soul"
Devilgaunts are useful in a variety of situations. Whether you would take them at 1000 points is questionable, however. It's all based on your own play style, but really I'd save them for 1500+.
They are usually deployed in Spores for their key supporting anti-infantry and objective capturing role, however I have found some use with them on foot. As a general rule, have 15 or 20 Devourer-wielding Termagants in a brood, but be flexible. You could have any number between those, depending on your need. I would recommend you take a Spore however if you cannot afford it or you want to deploy them in another way then do again, be flexible.
