    Bad? These acquaintances of Yours didn&#39;t bother to state it any more specifically?

    As far as I&#39;m concerned, the only bad point about the Gargoyles is that they&#39;re a bit pricey, and even that can be rather easily circumvented by converting them from plastic Gaunts.

    Ruleswise, they&#39;re the best deal in abilities for points in the curent Codex. I do prefer Leaping Gaunts myself, but in larger games a brood of Gargoyles is a frequent sight in my lists.

    Tacticswise, I use the in much the same way as I use Leaping Gaunts... They&#39;re as cheap as Leaping Gaunts (in fact cheaper than my Leapers) and thus equally disposable. Kill things? On a lucky day, but just like Gaunts in general, their main purpose is to engage enemy troops in CC to hinder enemy shooting.

    good: maximum of 18" movment including fleet (faster engagement). extra kills from BioPlasma and fleshborer. worth about 14 pts a piece&#33;

    bad: the cost to buy them in blisters....

    I&#39;d love to use Gargoyles. Based solely on the point, they&#39;re a bloody steal&#33; I&#39;d definitely field a couple broods of 15, if I had enough. That&#39;s the problem, though. They&#39;re expensive so I only have 10 and they&#39;re also a real pain to transport.
    Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?

    for less points you can get better gaunts with wings like st bp
    I think a great bumper sticker would be as follows:

    huh? what is st bp?

    the only really bad thing is that they are expensive to buy as someone mentioned above.

    The hive has a place for all, the biomass is all. Ware to those who fail to see the power that is the hive fleet. Take solace for those who fall to the hive are not lost, just changed for the better.

    It&#39;ll be even better if the rumour about "living ammo" for Fleshborers is true. Right now the lack of AP makes a winged Gaunt with Spinefists a better option for firepower -- and it even costs a bit less (though it has probably half the effectiveness in assault). Still, I&#39;ve got to wonder if Gargoyles&#39; point cost will change in the new codex. . .
