Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am going to collect nids soon, and I have ran across a question?
What is best to use out of these
[there will be several biomorphs as well]
2x Scything talons
1x Scything talons
Post your own opinions in which cases will either work best.
Thanks < .
Both will work great - its really situational.
imho, the first setup is preferable if you're going to model (and pay the points for) wings on your Tyrant(s). The second is marginally better if you don't have the wings (for things like shooting down speeders and other fast moving vehicles).
Anyone considered having a winged Tyrant with 1 set of Scything Talons and a Devourer? That could be quite neat - 6 S5 shots, good troop killer at least.
As my opponents I often play are S. marines and chaos, I'm going to go with option 1, as warp blast is useful for anti-marine and anti-vehicle purposes. I am not giving my tyrant wings though. Do you agree with this, or think its a bad idea?
Actaully, I think I may change my mind again, I didn't know VC had 3 shots with the tyrant, nor the fact that warp blast is only 24" range.
Simple and easy go with wings (and any other biomorphs u like) plus venon cannon , warp blast and Scything Talons.
Works for every case and type of enemy and also its good to have 2 Tyrants with wings in your list.
MEAT IS MURDER
I probably won't have wings, as i'm useless at conversion and cannot afford the forge world version. If any one has a easy way of modeling wings onto the tyrant tho, I'm all for it.
If you can pin parts (and you'd better be able to, if you're looking at assembling the bigger bugs ), you can pin Bloodthirster wings onto your tyrant's back. Very, very minor filling in with some green stuff and you've got a winged tryant. Dragon wings may be cheaper (since they're made of plastic) but you'll have to do a bit more cutting and green stuff work for it. The 'thirster wings just need to be solidly pinned.
i used plastic dragon wings (no pinning needed) just use some green stuff to smooth the connections and help strenghthen the bond
