Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just wondering if you think it's worthwhile to take 4 Pariahs for the Souless rule, warscythes and extra gauss blasters?
Combined with the Nightmare Shroud you can make opponents fall back in the shooting phase on a Ld score of 7.
I reckon you could try screening 4 pariahs behind 10 or so flayed ones. That would hold up almost any CC unit for ages . Too bad Terrifying Visage don't work on fearless models..
"Come to the dark side! We have cookies!"
A lot of people prefer having The Flayed Ones/ Immortals over Pariahs because they, not having the 'Necron' ability, cannot have the WBB rolls. But I think you should give them a try - they have better stats and weapons, I think...
:o Warscythes=amazing and with Gauss Blasters...technology nowadays, eh?
eh heh, no. I feel that pariahs are never worth taking and will not make their points back.flayed ones still cant dent marines in combat very much, even if thew marines hit on 6's. Ya it would tie them up for probably the whole game, that is if ur opponent is stupid enough to not assault the pariahs. I 3 dont cut it on a model that expensive.
Pariahs are useful but you have to be very careful about you assault with them. Most of the time you will be fighting second and this will seriously affect the effectiveness of the unit.
The are absolutely essential though if you are fighting someone with a lot of 2+ saves in their army.
And that army would be... Deathwing only. Thats the only army that you can count on to have a lot of 2+ saves. Against an army that isn't death wing but has a unit or to with a 2+ save, the guy who is playing the army should be beaten if he lets ur guys that move 6" a turn get into assault with that unit.
Grey Nights also get a lot of 2+ saves.
Unfortunately they don't have to fight second so i don't take Pariahs against them!!
Actually i just don't win against them!!
never take pharies they cost to much to not count twords your pahse out
Flayed ones and Immortals cost less points, less money and are better
Are you shure? What about SISTERs? They have good chance to reroll save, but if you use parias - they can't do it (no save)!
... use just 4-5 parias in your army (above 1500 army points only) as bodyguards of warriors (against assasins, terminators, fast HtH units),and Ld down to 7 is good ability...
