    For some reason I alwaus figured that Zoanthropes where weak and useless in CC. Then I went over their stats and noticed that they have a decent Strength, multiple CC attacks, good toughness and 2 wounds!!! Next time I dont have any targets to shoot I will try assaulting with them. Especially since they have Warp Field.

    The last battle I used them I took them off the boad after suffering one wound. Never knew they had 2

    Yup!

    They might be sedentary Psychic creatures, but they're still quite nasty in CC thanks to the Armour save granted by Warp Field and multiple wounds.

    Wish I could say the same about my Biovores. God I'm becoming to hate them...

    Zoanthorpes are great! As long as they arent toasted by anti tank weapons... then again those pesky devastator squads and broadside suits are either locked up in cc with infiltrators, leapers or lictors or they are to worried about the winged tyrant which is about to assault them!
    Anyway... zoanthorpes are very decent in CC, very resilliant thanks to warp field as long as the opponent has no armour negating CC weapons. Which makes zoanthorpes great for assaulting squads of necrons when there is nothing to shoot!
    As I may have told before, I charged a zoanthorpes into cc with a full necron squad I caused 2 downed necrons, he caused 0 wounds in the zoanthorpe, failing the combat he failed Ld fell back and ran off the board (these were 3rd edition days) hoorah for the zoanthorpe! Unfortunatley the same zoanthorpe attempted to crush a destryoer with a warp blast which resulted in the zoanthorpe imploding, ohwel I guess it already made the points!

    When I have a chance I always assault with Zoanthropes. 3 of them wiped out 4 marines in tactical squad i one assault turn, leaving sgt. to Carni.

    My lone Biovore survived 3 assault turns with Necron Lord. Lord in this fight lost 1 wound.

    Heh, I read this thread and thought I better check again to see if they are any good. Strength and Toughness is standard, WS is not good, 2 attacks is ok, but enelies will get full saves. They aren&#39;t really that good and I can&#39;t see them surviving against most things. Probably because so many things are made to cut through armour saves.

    It&#39;s not that they are monsters in CC, it&#39;s that they have a 2+ save. If you get them into HtH with a heavy weapon squad (or any squad with not power weapon in it), that squad is stuck in CC until A) the Zoan wins or something better at CC catches up and wipes out said squad.

    as i have said before, my lone Zoanthrope beat a librarian in CC in 2 rounds. i first tried 3 high power warp blasts and he stopped them all. then, i got fed up and assaulted. he seemed happy about it but i don&#39;t know why(lol). my opponent proceeded to roll all 1&#39;s for his attacks. i then got 2 hits, 2 wounds, and he failed his saves. next round he got a wound with that damn force weapon. he rolled for psychic test and it didn&#39;t matter that psychic scream tyrant had recently got near cuz he rolled double 6&#33; he then rolled a 6 for strength, got wounded, and failed his invulnerable save. my zoanthrope then killed himself while taking down a land raider. he definately made his points that battle.
