i hope you all know what the trygon is, but i was wondering if you do, is it a legal unit to field, because if it is, i have some UBER CHEESEY tactics to use with it. any help with this matter is appreciated
*NOTE- the have rules for it out already i believe
The Trygon exists outside of the core ruleset. It doesn't break any rules, but its balance (like any other Forgeworld or custom creation) is certainly in question.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

awsome, cuz i have majorly awsome strats to wear i will be hate when i play nids. lol
i have my trygon, and i love it, i dont field an army without it.
290 points for something with 5 wounds and 1 mass point??
How can you not go wrong, i personally dont find it uber cheesy. If someone wants to bring it down it can be, but it needs ALOT of firepower to do so.
I have been even considering using 2 of them.
Every nid player should get one, or that amazing looking titan on ebay done by bluetable painting. *Drool*
There is hardly any uber tactic to use with it, you pay far more with FW models than that they are worth, the only thuing you can do is using it's deepstrike to land right in an enemy unit/vehicle so your stuck in cc.
And even there you still a big firetarget.
Except the Hierophant. That thing IS worth it IMO. Sadly, you'll almost never get to field one (either the opponent won't [rightfully so] let you or IA stuff in general is banned)Originally Posted by Dreachon
How about the tunnel rule? Deep-Strike him at the back of their lines and have a massive brood of UBER-Horms (+S +I) Come out behind him. They can just hop from squad to squad killing everything. They will even take out terms if u have enough of them lol.Originally Posted by Dreachon
"They are coming! I feel them scratching inside my mind, scratching, screaming, running, so many - so, so many voices. They're coming for us - flesh, body and soul!"
actually they come the turn behind him which is for some armies more than enough time.
Plus there is always the risk of scattering of the table for the poor Trygon.
By agreeing to play an opponent, IMHO you are agreeing to let them use any figures they have in their collection. This is different to torney play where they are governed by the rules of the competition. It would be unthinkable in battle for an opposing force not to use their most effective units incase it upset the enemy.Yes there has to be balance ,but to refuse an opponents units use during a game just because you feel it is too powerful is unsporting. Tyranid creatures such as the Hirophant are tough but a balanced army should be able to take care of it, not easily but should.Originally Posted by Laplace
