I know both armies like the back of my hand, I build and painted both. Im selling the DA army to Occultist (my up coming oppentent) cuz he has shaking hand syndrome. Any who i have

Carnifex with sythes and BS with Extra wounds and toughness
and a headless Zoanthope which i can repair.
At my disposal.
Grand master with Axe and Plasma pistol
2 Dreadnoughts-with the works
3 Tac Squads with Flamers, Laz, H.Bolters, Plasma cannons, Missle luancher
Scout squad with Rifles and pistols-aka the variety pack-goody:glare:
This is our frist time. i study tatics but i dont know what will happen. I really wish i had some guards,lictors or a brood lord, But the game is friday afternoon and time is short.
Open to suggestoins.:ninja:
And i will try to post the picture on the internet for your viewing pleasures!
Mod Edit -
It is still not okay to use foul language just because you used different characters to represent letters in the curse words. Keep the language civil and stop trying to circumvent the filters.
Hi, you should be wary of his rapid firing bolters!, they spell doom for nids, those terminators will rip yor troops a new one so they have to die!
the carnifex (if it can avoid heavy weapons) is awesome against Asmodai and the grand master- instant death!
IMO the best tactic is to have nearly indestructable units (hive T + guard and fully biomorphed fexes) block LOS and get your other units to seperate and swamp the tactical squads, this will breaks his army in half!
Also avoid the whirlwind like the plague (this and the terminators should be high piroity targets as their toughness and high firepower will cut YOUR force in two)
Hope this helps.
P.S For death wait until the Star Gods awaken, then you shall know death!
Try deep striking the lictor behind his whirlwind and smack it's back armour as much as possible!
Also use your massive numbers of gaunts to lock the termies in combat where they will eventually fail a save due to the enormous number of attacks pelting on them and as a bonus they're not gallavanting around screwing up your plans!
Finnaly upgrade that Zoanthrope with synapse and warp blast and use the stronger blast against his grand master (it causes instant death)
Well seeya and good luck!

When did I realise I was God?
Well one day I was praying and I realised...
I was talking to myself!
Primarch Of The Iron Clan
Part of my regular diet is a DA force that includes a Librarian, a Dreadnaught, jetskimmers and lots and lots of shooty marines.
I have won about half the time. In every game I have taken appalling losses from DA shooting until the bulk of my force gets into assault. Whether I win or lose depends on how much I have left by the time the biffo starts, and whether I've managed to tear down the skimmer.
I heartily endorse Zeus's plan to drop a lictor behind the whirlwind! Large blast templates can wreck your day. The lictor is also a Dreadie killer if it survives the first assault.
I don't have money for a lictor cuz of my school is run by greedy people. Genestealers may work. maybe i should call the slow Fex i reserve at the enemy flank.
The warroir with venom cannon my get shot off.
best bet is the stealers.
The terminators as far as im concerned is dead meat. Termaguants in ranged combat only will take care of the terminators.
Whirlwind is my huge concern.
Im surpirsed i dont hear about people running into these things more often:ninja:
break your hormagaunt into as many squads as you can, more FoF rolls means at least one unit will make into CC in the 2nd turn or, if the DA sets far up, maybe even 1st turn,
then swarm the guy, stealers will make a mockery of anything they touch, with so many gaunts you will kill something, as soon as you get 12 inches away, thats alot of shots, just concentrate your fire and you will kill things
The fight was pushed back to next friday. if i get the money should i buy a lictor or brood lord?
ill be making mines out of scratch for boivores. what mine should i go with?
I'd go with a lictor over the broodlord, the ability to run after a combat is wonderful, especially vs a tank or dread that cant chase you. (assuming you can get into cover and avoid their firing at you)
But i'm deeply in love with Lictors, lol.
And I hate the broodlord model, pictures, everything about it. The loss of Foc it gives the Stealers, its just..ew.
He's coming for you...
Broodlord! It can be quite a good tank hunter and it will rip sm heroes in half! it will also shred the tactical squads and even the terminators will think twice.
This is just my opinion.
Broodlord indeed, if you can get it in cc it will kill anything it get's its claws on.
He's perfect for taking down beefed up characters the enemy my have.
