:ninja: Tank shock how often is it effective and when should you use it
Keep in mind that only models that are over run, get DOG attacks, meaning if you clip his squad, and avoid those members, they generally won't be able to hurt you.The_Outsider said:Well, if its your tank it can only occur in your movement phase. There is nothing stopping an opponents tank shocking your troops as well in their movement phase.
It is a risky tactic as most squads have weapons like meltaguns and the like, thus generally resulting in your tank turning into a big fireball.
p 70, must stay in coherency.Noctus said:I find it very usefull vs tau shooty player, who screen his crisis with little firewarriors squads.
Tank shock allows to go through these human screens without having to loosing precious time to deal in CC with them.
I am using squads in rhino to open gaps in these screens either to pass through, or to open gates for my assault squads.
One question though: Can you disrupt unit coherency using tank shock? (i had an argument with a friend about this)
I think you should pull out your tape measure again... the 'Lith is only 6" square.LordCreampuff said:Vehicles like the Necron Monolith can use this to great effect as it is 8" long per side. The fact that it is a skimmer means you can shoot under it without trouble.
