The new White Dwarf has 2 new weapons for gaunts and I just want to know whether I am the only one excited about having gaunts with an 18" AP 4 weapon.
Well, they still have to hit, they still have to wound. Only one of four gaunts will actually cause a wound, and marines still get their armour saves. One wound per 48pts of gaunts per turn. That's not very good. Additionally, these gaunts are very expensive. Also take into account that most enemy units have an effective range of 18" too, they move 6" and shoot 12". So unless you swamp the enemy in a gaunt horde after shooting he will be able to shoot the gaunts for sure.
Strangleweb gaunts are more interesting, but only against horde armies such as orks and other tyranids. Their range is a major problem though, you need an excellent timing (in order to charge the survivors of their attack) and lots of cover (in order to bring them close to the enemy alive).
I suppose that asking for the stats for those of us who do not subscribe would violate the whole no rules post rule thing right?
It really shouldnt. If some mod would give the go-ahead, I'd gladly do it.
I would also like to see the new rules. After all, everyone here has payed for the codex and a butt-load of Nid models... and if they havent they probably wouldnt be interested.
Well I bought the new WD. So I will have them in short order.
Can u incorrectly spell the str,ap rng? and get away with it. ^^
Is that february WD, i only just got januarys one.why cant the shuffle them up so the feb ones come out in when ever they do named after the month they really come out in. "Confused".
Well its Issue 288 if that helps.
Bah, got 289 and no 288. D'oh!
Ooh, O'shavah is evil....
And more specifically, that'd be WD 288US. Haven't seen them in the UK version yet.
But what I've heard, I'd much rather have had the Spike Rifles as normal Bio-weapons.
These are my stats for the Spike Rifle, as I would've wanted to see them, NOT the GW ones! Essentially longer range Spinefists, range 18", cost 2/4 for Gaunts, 6/8 for Warriors. Or maybe 3/5 G, 7/8 W?
On the other hand, the Strangleweb stats have sounded good.
Now only if the Devourers could force a Fall Back test on the enemy as they used to...
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
