Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm wondering what units my army will need... I want it to be somewhat all-roudn, bit of shooting, but more CC, and balanced in the matter of creature sizes, so not perse swarmy or godzilla, ...
20 stealers + Broodlord
1 biovore + bunch of mines
6 ripper swarms
1 carnifex shooty (BS/VC)
1 winged HT
I'm guessing maybe zoans, maybe raveners and enlarging my lictor and vore broods, maybe another carni.....
I'm not sure what to do first??
Zoanthropes would be a nice addition IMO and another carnifex couldn't hurt.
Enlarging your lictor brood would also be a good idea (the more the merrier!).
perhaps investing in some more gaunts to use as spinegaunts wouldnt hurt at all
how about a case to carry them around in :yes:
The next models to buy depend on your play stlye. you could get more lictors or swarmy stuff.. it all depends on how u like to play. the figs you have seem like enogh to get the job done .
Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.
Another shooty fex and some more gaunts would fit in nicely. Numbers are always good, but the adittion of the gex splits the fire from 2 MT to 3, hopfelly increasing the life-span of them, especially the tyrant. After that maybe another lictor.
How about a couple of raveners? Even if you get just two or three their speed makes them super deadly and another one of those anoying but good targets that your enemy has to waste a squads turn to shoot at it. Whatever you choose, happy hunting
yeah I know, it's especialy hard to cary that winged HT around my hand made wings are akey-breaky :pOriginally Posted by Adeptjosh
and a cardboard box doesn't do my mini's much good :s

Raveners yes, I use 3 and split the in to 3 seperat fast attack choises.
This creates multlpe taget seletion for the enamy, eg 1 brood of 3 raveners gets shot by a squad of Space mariens, being really weak its no suprise that all three die, but seperat choises means only one ravenrer can be targeted and will die this helps a little and creates alot of over kills and wast of shots witch is what you want (Marvus mentiond this too). You can keep them together and support each other and the flying Hive tyrant for one big flank attack.
Gargoyles have a good stat line for their point cost and I am thinking of geting some for myself later, but 2 raveners and a brood gargoyles are fine to fill up your fast attack choises. not to mention very cheep.
Lictors, I bought three at the start (third ed still look cool) but now I find them hard to fit in all but my largest army lists. and I dont get to use these very often.
I am trying 1 lictor in my standard list and its working and freeing up more point for multiple Hive tyrants and carnifexs witch I love to use all them time.
Biovors no. I repet NO, they have gotten worse from large blast to small is a terrable change, save the heavy support slots for carnifexs and of course Zoanthropes. They are great give them synapse and Warp blast and you have got power you would never leave home without.
In a tornament my two Zoanthropes really help kill those devistator SM that were to far away for me to bite.
I hope this gives you some good ideas for your growing swarm..
You can expect some armies to have 3+ Tanks, Dreadnoughts & Skimmers. I would suggest getting a Dakkafex, Gunfex or Shooty Tyrant & Guard. Also 10 Gargoyles is just a bit too small to be effective.
