Hi. I'm thinking that when used the Broodlord is a huge target for enemy fire, now with this taken into consideration i'm not sure wether its work giving his genestealer rutine extended carpace as they'll probably be shot by a battle-cannon anyway. I'd use them more as a meat shield and the Broodlord would of course get extended carpace because i expect him to ake it into combat.
So i'm basicly asking is the EC worth it for the rutine?
If you take a battlecannon shot, yeah it won't matter, but if you think that you will face a ton of bolter fire, then the EC might be worth it as it is the difference between saving half and saving none. If you want to keep the retinue cheap and simply use it as ablative wounds for the BL, don't bother with the EC, but if you want at least a few of them to get into CC and you expect to get shot at then EC moght be worth it. If you use the BL to hunt characters, then IMO the EC isn't worth it for him because if he doesn't manage to kill the character, he is going to be hit back with a power weapon most likely. If he's going against a regular squad, he will most likely clear out his kill zone and won't get hit back. Either way the EC is worthless. As long as the retinue is alive, any wounds that would ignore his 4+ can be put on a regular Stealer.
Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.
Yeah....well trouble is that i'll be facing two opponents, I'm going to be having a 2v2. They'll be plenty of CC ability to kill me and plenty of shooty.
I know EC wouldn't matter if i was hit by a battle-cannon but i mean, that if there is a single 1 rolled on the dice for wounding. Then i just say "yeah well of course i'm not letting you wound the Broodlord" you know you don't need to take wounds on only modles benaeth the blast marker. So i know with or without EC i will have the **** blown out of me
