Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am trying to bulid a nid army 500pts at and time, and recently bought a lot of genestealers. I have never faced any vehicles, and worry if I make a genestealer heavy army it will be destory.
My questions are does rending claw work well on vehicles? What is the average armour value on a vehicle that I will face?
Thank you for any help
It's a risk, there's no garantee's in battle.
As for armourvalues, depends on your opponents.
With rending you dont need to worry about armour values as it works on any armour the same
Rending can work well as each genestealer will have 3 attacks on the charge and all you need is a few 6s but in a 500 point game most players will have something light like a landspeeder but you need 6s to hit one of these
I would recommend at least some sort of heavy shooting ability because you will struggle with anything above armour 12. Maybe a few zoanthropes or a Fex with a venom cannon??
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.

I agree with solo about having some heavy shooting ability, but I disagree with him about having trouble with amour over 12.Originally Posted by Solo
On the charge, a basic squad of 6 genestealers will have 18 attacks. Aproxiamately 3 will be rending. That is 10 armour penetration already on those and the other 3 will have 1/3 chance of piercing av 14 and a 1/6 of glancing. That means about 1.5 of those 3 attacks will hurt a russ. With a bigger squad, you have a much better chance as well.
The problem with them is you actually have to get close to do this and that is a risk but with a 500pt game, there shouldn't be that many tanks.

Sorry, double post
Well your talking 500 points and your mate would be a bit mean too take a Monolith in a 500 point game thats if he can after his 2 troop choices and hqOriginally Posted by sandari
If he does then he wount have points for a Res. orb so get some genestealers into his warriors and you sould be ok
Don't want to get pedantic, but at 500pts, the necron can't field a monolith, unless he's cheating.Originally Posted by KOS-MOS
It'll be a lord, troops and res orb.. or lord, troops and scarabs and... that's it.
Scarabs versus rippers! :w00t:
