    Bloodletters dosen't have a toughness of six, no normal demon has that except for the greater demons, the greater guys all have toughness 6. The bloodletter has toughness 4. My suggestion is to go for the genestealers w/ scythe talons and rending claws. Just think of alll the attacks if the genestealers charge. genestealers ca nwipe out the bloodletters, but have a hive tyrant to attack the Blood Thrister. The hive tyrant will always attack first no matter what. The hive tyrant has a int. of 5 while the blood thrister has 4. if you have a carnifex assault the bloodthrister, kiss a good 190pt model goodbye. Remember, the carnifex has a lousy int., so it is better to have a suit-up hive tyrant more.

    Im not sure but are these daemons CC only because if they are wouldnt Zoanthropes with Warp blast be far more useful, for forcing the invunerable sv?
    or are you talking genestealers for the 6 on hit rolls (rending claws)





    Also i dont get how rending claws work verses amour values, come to think of it i dont understand armour at all.

    Use either genestealers or hide leaping warriors/rending rippers behind a gaunt line and let them fight without base contact.

    Do *not* give your genestealers scything talons though. That upgrade is definitely not worth the points. It's better to keep them "cheap" and numerous. This way they will have almost the same punch due to the higher model count, they get more charg bonus attacks, and each casualty hurts you less because you have more of them.

    come to think of it i also hate the scythe talon thing for genestealer. Yeah, listen to ArchonAstaroth, it is better to have numerous of them.
