No kidding eh? He's basically saying "I don't need to be fast because after your puny mortal weapons fail to even ruffle my badass death cloak, I will pick you up with my mind and sodomize you with with my giant wheat trimmer from hell like a giant armored cherry on a toothpick. At my own leisure."

Default Why kill him?

Why worry about killing him? In a Lash list you can push him around possibly more than his actual movement each turn (6").
And two lashes own him hands down. He'll be lucky to not be stuck in the far corner of the board at the end of the game.

So I'd have to say *yawn* to the nightbringer, lol.

the nightbringer has some pretty evil abilities if you ask me, the ability to charge in over and over giving him 6 attacks can wipe out most CC even if they attack first with their initive, since in the begining of the enemy assult phase after moves have been made but before any blows are struck the nightbringer may harness its power to summon etheric winds which hurl its opponents away from it any enemy unit with a model within 6 inches (not vehicles) which has a str lower then 4 unmodded must move 2d6 inches directly away from the nightbringer. its not THAT useful (since its str 4. I think it should be STR 5 cuz of all the damn SM's around) but this does not work to break close combat with any troops (too bad)

all in all, if you wana take ou the nightbringer, use multi attacking high STR attacks. else the wounds attacks and his attacks will destroy you.

correct me if im wrong, but isn't the nightbringer immune to instant death, and if so, force weapons no longer work on him, because 5th ed force weapons inflict instant death rather than removing all wounds.

nightbringer is not immune to instant death(I KNOW HE'S GOD, WHATS UP WITH THAT!)
the skulltaker has I 5 4 attacks and ws 7, he also has furious charge so... he hits on 3's then all needs is too roll a 4 and the night bringer to fail his save and he's dead, because all rending attacks from the skulltaker inflicts instant death, oh yea skulltaker rends on 4+ not 6+

Remember that you don't actually 'kill' the Nightbringer: he is a god. You shatter the Necrodermis that contains some of the Nightbringer's essence with the instant kill, but the essence lives on and returns to the Tomb World to inhabit another form.

But you still smash the body throw a pair of scremer-killers at him that will make him think twice (or not).

One other thing to bear in mind if u wanna swamp him with s5 marines....he has a template attack in cc that is s 4 and ignores saves...everyone under an ordanmance template centred on the god (that would prob be all of them), so you will lose HALF your marines in the 1st round of cc...oh, and yes skulltaker basically eats the c'tan for breakfast...it is REALLY annoying.....
