Welcome to Librarium Online!
If you haven't heard, zoanthrope's can't shoot anymore. I've heard plenty of stories, and witnessed it in real life.
I got absolutely slaughtered by tyranids one game, but the zoanthrope only got 1 hit the whole game.
Post crazy zoanthrope missing stories here!
Your talking about them and Warp blast, arent you :p
As of Tyranid 5th Ed. codex I have the Gaunts I wanted. I did, however, loose the sniperfexs I relied upon and they were more important then the gaunts.
I find too unreliable to field with the warp blast, I would rather give the the Psychic Scream and Synapse, and use them to soak up enemy fire, with those cumulative -1 to Ld, they'll shoot thier bolters at somthing completely cheap with a 2+ save, saves the other critters from taking heavy casualties.
For some reason the last things my zoas killed were two plaguemarines - in close combat.These things in combat on the other hand seem much more capable of headbutting or whatever it is they do.
How did they scatter a shot that doesn't use scatter dice?Mine were such bad shots they managed to scatter their Warp Blasts into my Genestealers.
i have the same problem i field 2 zans and maby hit 2twice per game and when i do hit i cant wound even with a powered up blast. :eek:
