The Continuing Quest to Make Tyranids Playable by Mark Perry

27 Jan

In my continuing quest for making Tyranids playable, I am once again visiting the no-win scenario of Dark Eldar.

Last time I looked at how I could compete on a matching fire-with-fire basis ie with a shooty list. Problem here is that if you don’t get first turn (and with the Baron you rarely do) then you are likely to take a right pasting Turn one and not have enough left to shoot back with.

We will rise again …. Evolution of the Necrons Matt Kirk Blog 5: “The Patent Pending Scarabulator Mark I”

25 Jan

Prewarning: This blog contains the assumption about scarab rules that you roll to melt armour and then roll to penetrate afterwards which is how I have been playing it. If the FAQ comes out and says differently I am prepared to eat all of these words and rewrite this whole section. That’s commitment! Until then … we have to play it somehow and this is what I’ve been going with. Enjoy….

So I am playing this game against my friend Paul right and he plays Orks with battlewagons and death-rollers and all sorts of horrible nastiness inside them. Against that I’ve got these 20 scarabs to get rid of as many vehicles as possible. It’s all good though, his greenskins of destruction in all their scary looking vehicles are surrounding his KFF in one big group and are about 19” in front of the scarabs (sweeet). There are 2 battlewagons, 2 truks and one looted wagon and they have all moved fast so it’s now or never with my scarabs. I have to accept that the scarabs are doomed if they attack but unless I immobilise this ork army there are gonna be a lot of orks with their proverbial hands in my veritable robot cookie jar of squishy warrior units. Attack it is … just one thing …. How many go on each vehicle? How many vehicles can I actually take out? Is 8 too many or too few to expect a wrecked result? Can I put some on the looted wagon or are they all going on the battle-wagons? How do I minimise the amount of orks that are going to be hurtling towards me next turn?

Ok, so it’s been… *checks blogroll* ..wow, three months or so since I said I was starting my new daemon army and I’ve finally gotten bits assembled and played it for the first time. So I figured I’d share my experiences. First, let’s begin with the list I brought:
