I can just imagine the soup ... well, it'd be more diluted than dishwater tbh.. Marines with some IG, add Custards and Guilliman then throw in some DW and finally a Grandmaster on baby carrier to taste... with a shiny assassin on top.
So, had my first real Tyranid outing yesterday vs. a Chaos marine list (mostly dreadnoughts and Abaddon) played a maelstrom game and was 20/20 on points until he killed my lone surviving stealer in turn 7 ... 'Nids are FUN! ... but not actually as killy as I thought they would be .. degrading WS profiles on Trygons ... ouch!
also .. trying to scratch the paintwork on T8 FW dreads with stealers .. or Trygons ... or Carnifexes ... is not fun, Broodlords were making a good go of it ... but just not enough choppy
I know right ... sent them at the wrong target to be honest ... there was a squad of 22 cultists ... but I had to tie up that dread with the quad butcher cannon ... too dangerous to leave alone ... and S4 v T8 was a slog
Brood lord smote it well and then clawed it (re-rolls helpsed) but the dread chopped down my 20 man squads to ineffective numbers real quick ... and the Screamer killer fex .. well he rolled 1's ALL game for shouting.. killed 3 cultists in 7 turns
I thought the same ... Raven Guard and Necrons ... but I've limited myself to a couple SC boxes and some troops and a couple other bits and pieces ... and It seems I've not really limited myself atall plssendhelp!!
