Karnox Oh yeah naturally 3k+ I feel uneasy having a single 300 point HQ choice in anything under 2k points
10-05-13 02:05 PM
ntaw If by larger games you mean 3k+ I understand.
10-05-13 01:44 PM
Karnox Oh yeah I know, it really is a lot, but I think for larger games you can probably afford to have it. It isnt worth it against horde armies, but against specialized armies its good.

Even my Grey Knights shy away from that many eggs in a basket.

Setite The MSS are fun to spam like that (once in a while...I want to keep playing). One thing, If you're getting the Harbringers of the storm, spend the extra points on the lightning field. I usually go with the crystal too, but for me it seems every other game I have some sterngaurd or deathwing dropping right next to me.

Karnox Well I worked out the points and its 760 for an overlord with 2+ 3++, MSS, Scythe, Orb. Then 5 Lords with 2+, MSS, Scythe, then A harbinger of despair for teleports, and 4 harbingers of the storm for 12" Assault 4 haywire guns. Yeah the Lords only have 1 wound, but with a 2+ armour they are harder to kill than lychguard, and with the res orb it means they are getting back up on a 4+
Also if get rid of the harbinger of despair then put the unit in a ghost ark turn one and because its open topped they can assault out of it for added protection. Its a really expensive HQ choice but I think maybe for 3000 point games you could probably take it. Especially if the Scarabs work as I would imagine and make you take multiple tests.

MidnightSun I reckon you'd take multiple tests, yeah.

Another trick is to kill the hundreds and hundreds of points worth of 5-not-even-Plague-Marines before they reach you. If it's single characters in squads, force him out of the fight with your assault vector.

Magpie_Oz The trick is to get plenty of cheap crap characters in to challenge.

If the necron challenges, then you accept it with a crap character who will only be able to hurt himself.

If he doesn't challenge, then you challenge.

Nordicus God I hope the Necron player in my group doesn't read this post... I will never see the end of such a setup.

Goddamn Mindshackle Scarabs. The bane of my being!
