Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi there, well i got to play my first game last nite, i have listed the armies and a very brief report in the battle report section have put a link at the bottom. Come back an post your views here, or ask me any questions
SM vs Nids 1500 points
If it lives it will be consumed
MMMM interesting to see the result of the two most recent codex's facing off against each other. Also did you think the Codex update was good and do you think it has made the nids better
if i can get a 700 points list together tonight then i will be playing a game tonight, i will most likely take 3 zoanthropes 9 warriors and all my gaunts.
EDIT:Troops 32 x Spineagaunts with SF

i'm in two minds on some parts of the codex but on the whole its good, the fex's rock , the HT took a hit as it cost more points for the same stats. For anyone wounding about the new lictor rules they rock , my lictor dropped in and took out 2 marine in the 1st round, you gotta love RC he was taken out the next round but only because a dreadnought decided to join in Its going to take more than one game to get the feel of the new codex and to get my army up and running. I fielded new stuff for me to see how well they worked, the SC on the zoat's was good but as for them they couldn't hit a barn if it was in front of them, one even took a wound from the warp :oOriginally Posted by box

Not much to say about my first battle really.
sm player 2 5 man tactical, sm commander vindicator landraider 7 termies with 2 assault cannon ,dreadnaught with assault and missle, 5 devstators 3 plasma 1 las.
2 groups of 1 horma, 2 groups of 10 termie,9 warriors 3 zoan all synapse,114 pts carni and 200 pts carni, 250 pts of ravener.
he went first, i lost 1 carnix and the expensive one regenerated 2 out of 4 wounds next turn.
lost it on turn 2 too, i assaulted with hormagaunts on turn 1 and the toehr group turn 2. it went on like this, i killed 3 marines 2 termiators, he killed all my gaunts 2 zoans and both carnifexs. the warriors never got attacked.
Those lists dont seem fair at all!
maybe its just me, but he either had more points than he should've, or it just went horribly horribly wrong
I had 2 battles a couple aof days ago. Played 1500pts against SM and DE. I won against SM and draw against DE.
HQ: Broodlord (used my loctor as one) with 5 pretty maxed stealers.
Elite: 5 maxed leaping CC warriors.
Troops: 1 brood of 24 spinegaunts, one brood of 24 homas, 5 leaping ripperbases and one brood of 6 codex stealers.
Fast attack: 3 Talon+Rending Ravengers
Heavy support: 3 synapse+WBlast zoans and one greatly shooter fex (Vcannon, Bstrangler + some stat improvement bmorphs).
ok I can't really recall what my opponents had but I'll try and remenber.
The SM dude had:
HQ: a master with jumppack, pfist and plasma pistol i think.
Elite: 8 standard stormbolter+Pfist terminators.
Troops: 4 tactical squads of 5-6 (can't really remenber) marines, 2 squads with a lascannon and 2 squads with missle launcers.
Fast attack: 9 assault squad marines, two of them had plasma pistols. a standard land speeder.
Heavy support: a Predator annihilator with sidemounted heavybolters. a Landraider crusaider.
SM turn 1: he went first. wounded my fex (1 wound :p ) with his landraider. blasted away about half of my spinegaunt squad with his predator. fired his lascannons on my zoans... one wounded. waited with his termies and assaout squad, shoot at my rippers with landspeeder.
Nid turn 1: moved forward with everything. blasted his landraider with my fex. 1 tactical squad took 2 causalties from my zoans WBlast. Broodlord assaulted his predator but only succeded in crew shaken.
SM turn 2: 2 lascannon fire with tactical squad were fired at my zoans... he missed with both . the other two nearly wiped my spine gaunt squad... but I still had 5 left! landspeeder continued fire on ripeprbases, kills of one base. Termies shoots at my broodlord and kills of 3 stealers. They assaults, I manage to kill 2 termies. They killed the last two stealers and inficted 2 wounds on my broodlord. Assaultsquad still waited.
Nid turn 2: blasted his landspeeder with one zoan. destroyes his predator with another zoan and the third misses. all fex shooting missed. assaults termies with my homies. My broodlord didn't manage to do a thing against his termies, my homas kills of 4! termies. The termies kills of my broodlord. spinegaunts shoot at tactical squad but didn't manage to do anything.
SM turn 3: one tactical squad joins termies in order to kill my homas. the marines killed 4 homas and my homas kills 1 terminator. the remaining terminator kills one homa. His assault squad shoots and assoults my ravengers killing one ravenger and leaving one with one wound before CC, my ravengers only succeded in dealing one wound on his master and he kills all of my ravengers. He accually shoots with one tactical squad on my remaining spinegaunts and kills them of. another tactical squad shoots at my rippers and kills of 2 bases. third aquad shoots att my zoan but lascannon misses and I saved the rest.
Nid turn 3: Missed with all shooting... ok warriors joined my homas and kills of 4 marines. Last marine did one wound on one warrior, homas kills of last terminator (note my homas killed 6 terminators! in this battle). My stealers assaults his assoultsquad and wipes them leaving only a master with 2 wounds... my fex assoults him. As he had a Pfist my fex went first... ofcause he died a horrible death. My remaining 2 ripperbases assaults one tactical squad, they kills one base and my last base kills one marine.
SM turn 4: he see little point in continueing this slaughter and gives up!
The DE dude had:
HQ: Archon with combatdrugs, Ã¼ber 2+ iv save item, and desintigrator. and 9 incubis all in a raider transport. And 3 Haemonoculus... with rather unknown equiplment two had desintigrator and one with funny DE flamer... but that's all I know of them... oh they were in a warrior squad each too.
Elite: 10 fully equiped Vyches in raider transport.
Troops: 3 warrior squads of 10 each and had 2 splintercannons in each. each of the squads had a sybarite with combatdrugs and desintigrator. and each was joined by a Haemonoculus.
Fast attack: 6 Hellions with a Succubus with a desintigrator.
Nid turn 1: I went first. Moved everything forward... and misses with all shooting ...
DE turn 1: He stand and shoots my ravengers with his warriors and kills of 2 of them. his darklances didn't succed in dealing any damage. His vyches shoots and assaults my stealers and kills of 3 stealers I kills 3 vyches. His hellions waits.
Nid turn 2: My fex misses again! one of my zoan shoots down his vych raider, another WBlasts one of his warrior squad and kills 3 warriors. I assaults one of his warrior squad with my broodlord and kills of his Haemonoculus with my broodlord and 9 warriors with my stealers.
DE turn 2: One of his warrior squad shoots at my sipnegaunts and kills of 12 gaunts another shoots at my rippers and kills of 2 bases. His Archon assaults my broodlod and kills my broodlord. My stealers kills 6 incubis. his remaining incubis kills 3 stealers. his vyches kills of my last stealers and I killed 2 vyches. They concilidate into my spinegaunts. His hellions assoulted my last stealers (from my broodlord hq) and kills them off.
Nid turn 3: My fex missed with VC but scored a hit with the BStrangler on one of his warrior squad. kills of 7 warriors. My zoans misses their WBlasts. My rippers assoults his warriors that my fex stooted at. They killed of one base and leaves one with 1 wound. my ripeprs kills of rest of his warriors in that squad. My homas assaults his incubis and kills of the rest of them, my warriors assaults his last raider and destroyes it.
DE turn 3: His Vyches kills 8 spinegaunts and I didn't kill any vych. My 2 zoan join my spinegaunts in CC and kills 1 vych. His last warriorsquad joins his archon, his archon killes of 4 homas and his warriors kills of 5 homas my homas kills 6 warriors. His Haemonoculus and hellions attacked my warriors and kills of 3 of them I killed 4 of his hellions. His Haemonoculus kills of my last ripper.
Nid turn 4: his vyches kills of last of my spinegaunts, my zoans kills one vych. His Archon kills 4 homas and warriors kills 3 homas. my homas kills of his last warriors. His hellions kills all but one warrior. My warrior kills his Haemonoculus. my last zoan joines my last warrior in battle. my fex shoots his Haemonoculus (who fought my ripeprs) to death.
DE turn 4: his vyches did one wound on my zoans my zoans kills one vych. his hellions kills of my last warrior. His Archon misses agains my zoan... but so did my zoan.
Nid turn 5: his vyches did nothing against my zoans any my zoans kills of a vych, they stand. His archon kills of my zoan.
DE turn 5: his vyches did nothing against my zoans and my zoans did nothing on his vyches. He moves towards my fex with his archon... too cowardly he hides his hellions.
Nid turn 6: Nothing happened... my zoans saved all his vych attacks and my zoans missed all theirs... my fex misses with all his shooting.
DE turn 6: same as above... my zoans saved all his vych attacks and my zoans missed all theirs... his archon was too far away of any battle.
He won 140VP witch was a draw.
I maybe have forgot something... can't remenber everything in detail
Actually, if you take no upgrades to what is there, that SM list is 1490 points. So it is a valid list. But it would score very low on Army Composition... There's more points in both Elites and Heavies than there is in troops...Originally Posted by Robizzle
All the Tac Squads minimum sized to get more heavy weapons too...
The play thought i would field the 8 MC's so got as many assult cannons in there as he could but yes the list points were correct as i have the SM codex to check. My army was built to deal with that kind of fire power.

Synap. Range as you lost the broodlord early on? You also were very luck for the hormagaunt to take out terminators ! I take it they had the TS upgrade if no WOW :cool: My zoan's were the worst shots ever any chance I can swop them for yours looking at his list he didn't take any assault cannons, this is a major pain in the butt for nids trust me on this one. On the whole i think you owed him in every way, he should have been more worried about you homies than the spine's, the guy i played took my out by turn 2 :huh:
