I recently played a game aginst a smurf player.
I fielded 30 stealers 5x6, 3 leet fex, 3 heavy fex ( building mounted turrets), and one HT
it was a hit or miss with one die roll. the decision of who went first!
i know that if i went first all the stealers would have done more damage than anything. but as my luck goes... i did not win the roll to go first. as every model in the smurf army has a gun the stealers did not last 2 turns. therefore not getting in to CC at all. then one by one the fex's began to drop.
just putting it out there. a no gaunt list is possible but only if you go first. and fyi regen is soooooooo not worth the 30pts. by the time people shoot at him it usely only takes one turn maybe two.
Totally agree with u. The regen of OOE rocked (which is why, thanks to the new updates on the website, im fielding him in my army) but the new one sucks. I use all the 6's allocated to me by the Dice God on gaunt saves (they do happen!) and RCs.....and fyi regen is soooooooo not worth the 30pts.
And it makes me annoyed when people look at me before a game, ask if i have regen on my fexes and then laugh when i say no.....
that 30 points is well spent in other areas....heck if you have 3 fexes 90 points could be 5 or 6 extra Stealers.
and actually a nice sized Genestealer force would be great if you have a Broodlord...i have also found that small units of Stealers don't last too long. I think 6 is two few...one Terminator squad with 2 assault cannons could rip you apart.
A good tactic that i have found to work is to have a brood of raveners on the same flank as one brood of stealers...with a good fleet roll you can be in CC with your raveners and those Termies won't be able to shoot at your Stealers. especially if you give your Raveners rending claws....3 Raveners almost equals 6 stealers.
that is why i use small squads of stealers. people shoot at them so when a 100pt squad goes pop i'm not worried. theres alot more comming at themOriginally Posted by gunslinger2005
havarell, what did you mean by updates to the website? you can still take OOE?
Yeah look on the Uk GW site or on any of the several threads discussing him. It's a little more expensive but almost unchanged besides that.
