Welcome to Librarium Online!
My friend loves crisis suits and has bout 15 just so that he could fill up all his elite and HQ spots. He loves his three hammerheads and rarely uses more than two squads of fire warriors. I don't really feel right about his army list there's something wrong to me about it, but he does manage to beat more than 80 percent of the people he plays. He keeps telling me to get more crisis suits because I only have two in a 750 point army list, what should I do?
Dont waste time, effort and money doing something YOU dont want to do, just because someone else thinks you should. Its not work, its a hobby.
I run four in mt 1000pt army. Two Shas'els (Helios and Fireknife) and two Monats (Fireknife and Deathrain). I can imagine there being problems with morale in squads larger than two, and I can see it being difficult to hide 15 crisis suits in cover.
I also agree with the guy above me. I have a Marine army made up of a bunch of scouts that almost never wins, but they're fun as hell to play with. Do what you like.
I would like to echo what everyone above has said, its your army, do what you want to do, be what you wanna be yeah. (sorry thats a song of this commercial in australia that always comes into my head in situations like this)
Personally at 750 pt level i play with three suits. One HQ and two Monat Elites. I LOVE crisis suits, they are great, but you have to remember there is a balance to all lists and overloading in one area (like having fifteen crisis suits) means there are weaknesses in anouther area, (probably like you mentioned in his troops sections).
Just as an aside, how many suits does he play in a 750 pt army. I can't figure how he could run 3 hammerheads and 15 suits. I assume he is playing at a higher pts level??
I don't care what you say. I found a lightsaber in my garage and that makes me a Jedi
At the end of the day this is just a game! Whatever you want to take is entirely up to you and you shouldn't let your mate pressure you into using units you don't want to.
I tend to use 5 crisis suits in 1000 pts with various loadouts, I'm actually considering cutting that back to try a different army list.
Also remember that winning isn't everything, as long as you have fun during the game there is no need to make a tournament army unless you plan to enter a tournament.
Battlesuits are fun, but 15! yea i suppose this guy has gone all out just because he really likes the suits, and i can't blame him! i don't have to echo what the other guys have said, all i have to say on this matter is that i approve of what the other guys have said in this thread (Reps all round! you lot deserve it )
[[[ I too have a LOT of crisis suits, but in 1850pts I usually play maybe 8 suits, 3x2man squads and a "O and an "el alone. Play as you see fit, as the others said, he apparently enjoys the suits, you do what you want.
Active Mech-Tau Player and am on ATT/Warseer/TO
But play the army in teh way that gives you the most fun, regarless of what people say or think! Its like my Orange Grey Knights, people always ask "Why orange?" and "Why don't you have TLLCs/MLs on your Dreadnoughts?" and I simple answer that I like them better that way.For my Tau list, at 1750 points I fun with 5 Suits, 1 'el and 2 teams of 2 suits (1 FireKnife the other Deathrain) I contemplated a second Tau army of suits, bu seeing as I was already in the middle of a Tau army (in 3rd ediion to boot) I put it off. But yeah those armies can be nasty.
i run 7 crisis and 6 stealth in my 2,000 campaign list 2 monat HQ both helios, 1 squad of 3 fireknife and a squad of 2 death rain. all 6 stealth with BC. i find this to me more than enough firepower, and as everyone has said do what makes the game fun for you. theres lots of lists that arent "the best" and if this game was designed to be played a certian way. GW would have given us "standard lists" not a codex full of choices!
