Welcome to Librarium Online!
do any people here us him?
whats he like?
is he too much of a points sink??
what do you lot use him for??
I've messed around with him a little bit. I think he is a bit of a point sink. To me, he's really nothing more than a nearly indestructable Ravager, but I'd rather take 2 regular ravagers in place of one Asdrubael.
It IS kinda nice to be able to have a vehicle for the DE that can make a bunch of power weapon attacks in hand to hand.
I'm not saying that he's no good. He's very good. There are just other things out there in the DE codex that I'd rather take.
Had this come up about Vect. Since his CODEX entry clearly states that he is an IC and the BGB states that ICs can't be targetted unless they are the closest unit to the firer, if I surround Vect with a unit of say Grots can he be shot at?
Crucial, do you EVER search the forums? I'm sure these characters have been discussed somewhere. . . . .
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."

The only thing comon between players that I have noticed when it comes to Vect is that no one knows how to use him correctly.
He's an independant character, so he should only be able to be targeted if he's the closest enemy unit.
-But he's a vehicle. Maybe his IC status should only work if he's the closest enemy vehicle for shooting.
He fights in hand to hand like a dreadnought.
-But he's a skimmer. Do I need a 6 to hit him?
I've used him in a couple of games to much frustration. So long as he's not getting shot at or in hand to hand, he's fine, though he's just a Land Raider in a Ravager's clothing at that point.
I have a question about him too.
Does his bodyguards only have a Splinter Pistol? The actual model/kit models have Splinter Cannons so can you purchase additional weapons for Vect and his bodyguards or can they only fight in CC with a Splinter Pistol?
ahhh.... Infrazael Draennonssraav my senile stinky senior member mate :rolleyes:
sure i COULD search... but the DE forums so bloody dead... id rather spread some life into it
and the dont come with splinter cannons... the come with disintergrators!!
The thing with vect is, he's pretty hard to kill in shooting, and he's good at shooting with his potent arsenal of weaponry, but he's also good at combat, so I have no idea where I want him to be, in that way he is alot harder to use than enything else in the dark eldar army because you (generally) know where you want the majority of your squads. I mean nobody is going to use wyches for fire support and Scourges for combat. I'd rather he was ultimate at one thing and rubish at the other than decent at both. Personally, instead of him, I'd get an archon AND a ravager, that way I'm not wasting any potential.
