carnifex, they used to be awesome in the last edition but i feel for what you get the points is too much.
This is the kind of thing I was hoping to avoid ; ), but I'm appreciating your story about killing the GK (regardless of the codex they were in at the time).
Thanks Tim and/or Steve, I get models I like the look of too, even if they it does turn out that no one else uses them. I got some models before I relised what the rules were like for them, but it doesnt really bother me. I like to write fun and interresting lists, trying out different combinations of stuff. I wrote a list the other day that did quite well, but then the more I use the same list, the more annoyed I get with myself for being boring. I dont want my armies to turn into the 40K equivalent of a Robot Wars, self righting, wedge shaped flipping machine. it workes, so everyone uses it.
I keep reasuring my friends that when I get my Grey Knights army up and running its not going to be as unstoppable as they think, because I dont play to win, I play to enjoy. My lits are going to be full of things that dont make a lot of tactical sense, but I'm happy with them.
That said... it doesnt hurt to win once in a while, or more specifically for me to get my own little personal victories, like wanting a 'bad' unit to achieve something. I've only used the Pyrovore a few times and he hasnt really done a lot in any of the games. I refuse to bench him indeffinately though, so I just wanted to know if someone had used him and done something cool with him. Likewise with the Lictor. The carnifex's and the mawloc I havnet really used and just wanted some encouraging to use them, so maybe I'll pop a Mawloc in the next list I write, try him out... I'm just worried about him scattering into a building and ... thats the end of that.
If anyone else has got success stories about any of these units, I'd love to hear them. I used to put Rippers on this list of things Im rubbish at using, but since then theve taken a Landspeeder, Daemon Prince and a Wraithlord.
