Acid maw says that the model can reroll any failed to-wound rolls in the first round of combat.
What does this 'first round of combat' really mean? For the price cost of acid maw, a 1-shot deal does not seem that useful.
What it basically means is when you charge someone or get charged you get to re-roll any failed wounds that you inflicted on your oppenent. For its points I think it is comepletly worthless and not worth taking at all.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

For a Flying CC Tyrant, where taking down that one extra wound on the first turn can mean the difference between winning and getting hit by a Force Weapon... Of course, if you're worried about Force Weapons, Implant Attack is the better deal.Originally Posted by Lictor1989
I say take both,
My CC Hive Tyrant the other day charged a unit of 8 Terminators, with the help of 20 spinegaunts they both wiped them all out and went onto a tactical squad then another and another, all new assaults, all getting me to reroll all the failed wound rolls.
The reason the Hive Tyrant killed about 25 SM is because he never failed to wound.
This was not luck, the Hive Tyrant is that powerful, (combined with a few gaunts to absorb hits and to out number) as this out come is just too easy to pull off.:yes:
10 stealers on the charge w/ scything talons /acid maw and hooks 40 attacks hitting on 3's rending on 6's and rerolling wounds who made it to the second round
Acid maw is good against the right enemies, Deathguard for example. Of course acid maw provides a nice safety net especially against high toughness enemies or very nasty ones where failing to wound will be dire. This biomorph is certainly only really justifiable as a purchace for assault specialists.
What biomorphs are used also sometimes depends on modelling, fluff.
I want to make bloodsucking Genestealers and I think acid maw will represent a big long bloodlicking tongue quite well.
