I 'm playing 1000 point battle against tau and csm and i need a bodyguard that will accompany asurmen, fit in a falcon, and be able to take out aunshi and ahriman. Please help, as i haven't decided on what to take, so which is better for this battle? :huh:
I would actually take Fire Dragons - cause as soon as you get close to those enemy characters - you'll more then likely die in Assault - well your banshees will at leasts. So its a good idea to fill up the enemy with ap1-2 shots before attacking.
But then again - if your playing new vehicle rules - I would suggest dropping Asurman, and takeing a 5 man Fire Dragon squad plus exarch with a fire pike - a strength 9 bs5 shot is nothing to laugh at. It'll kill most characters out right.
I'd go for scorpions, coz of armour. They have a much better chance of surviving an sustained assult. Also they get that extra attack from the manidblasters, it might not seem like much but there is the chance that the enemy might fail their save. If you give the exarch scorpion's claw and crushing blow that's +1 A and S9 or the biting blade and crushing blow +1A & S and +1A for every wound scored. For me the S3 and low Sv of the banshees isn't enough to make them that good, all though the exach with executioner could work.
