Im going to try out my tyranids again in a few practise battles before my friends start another tournament, I have bought the red terror and old one eye (but hardly used eitha of them) and since most of our battles are 1500 pts (cept the big 4 way carnages n stuff) i was wonderin which one to use as you can use eitha if your army is 1500 and i dont think both would be a wise investment of points....
So the question is what do prefer old one eye or red terror and why?
My friends armies are:
Blood Angels (very tank heavy)
Space marine (made up his own chapter: dark scythes)
Necrons ('lith and nightbringer at his disposal)
Chaos (Khorne, blood thirster abbadon)
+ sum might use my TAU
Which one old one eye or red terror would be more effective?

Well i dont like the Red Terror much, but he is a cool model. I would use him againsts Orks and maybe againsts Dark Eldar. But as for the high armor saves and such(Space Marines, i would go Old One Eye. He might be slower but has a better save, so he wont get shot up by missle launchers, and he can regenerate wounds that were inflicted by lascannons. Thats probably what he is going to shoot with at you. But the Red Terror wont be That bad of an idea. Although that the Red Terror has very low I3, which is total bullcrap, he still hits on a 3+, and wounds on a 3+. Only use the Swallow whole on a chaplain, not againsts normal marines. Remember that they are both mostrous creatures, so no armor saves. So againsts Orks and Eldar-Red Terror, Againsts Space Marines- Mostly Old One Eye, maybe Red Terror.
having both in your army is not that bad of an idea lets you have 2 TMC with cool special rules but like he said if you are going against swarm armies like orks use the RT cause he is fast and can sweep through the foe while against SM and the such with good saves and good weapons Old One Eye sure he is slow but he takes a licken and keeps on kicking.
Oh yeah i forgot about that the can get back up on the 4+, also he has 1 more wound than the RT. The Red Terror would cause chaos to the Orkish armies. Orks have an I2, so you will always strike first. Only eat Nobz, although that might not be the best idea thats the one thing that you should only eat. 6 Attacks on a charge is nasty. 3+ to hit, 4 hit, 3+ to wound, 3 wound. Thats not really alot. But put him by or in a squad of 3 Raveners with Scything Talons and Rending claws, they can reck havoc to the orks! Also it would look very, very cool, and thats where the RT belongs anyway.
You cant have both(Red Terror &Old One Eye) in 1500pts game.
Back to the topic , go with the RT , cause if u use biovores as your main HS unit u dont have problems (especialy versus swarms armys like orcs) , Red Terror is a good fast attack unit in your army list.
MEAT IS MURDER
If the army list is exatly 1500 points, it is allowed and he can take both.
id go for old 1 eye
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

Can't use Abaddon in a 1500pt battle.

Tau: 4/4/3 - 50%
DaemonHunters: 1/2/0 - 33.3%
Dark Angels: 3/1/0 - 75%
I think he was saying that the guy has abbadon at his disposal not that he was going to use him..............
Abaddon? Never heard of one, what is it?
