Warlord: Malanthrope

7 Command Points

Swarmlord
-Catylist
-The Horror

Flying Hive Tyrant
-Onslaught
-The Horror

Turn 1 the Swarmlord and genestealers in the trygons drop in and charge into combat. Exocrines lay down firepower while protected by the malanthrope and a shroud of gaunts.  The tyrant is there to drop mortal wounds on enemy units with smite, lay down some shots with his deathspitters and take out light infantry in combat if need be as well as provide synapse. Did some thinking and came up with this. i still have 21 points to play with. any suggestions are appreciated.

A Battleforged Army has to share one keyword across every Detachment.  Tau are not Imperium, so your list can't be Battleforged then.

Correction: A Matched Play army must all share one Keyword.  It appears that a Narrative and Open Play Battleforged army does not have the same requirement.  Pg214 for reference.  But since the vast majority of the game is Matched Play, it's still worth noting.

Discussion: Tyranids / Competitive Tyranid List-what does it run?

I've been playing nids since 7th edition and now in 8th I feel lost. I end up losing most of my games and I just would like to know what are the competitive lists/competitive units in 8th edition. Any suggestions are appreciated.

My main army is T'au, and I'm looking forward to taking a Culexus as an auxilliary. Some ability (oh please just please any ability) to disrupt enemy Psykers is worth it to me, plus they can default to taking out other characters with a little work. At least, that's the theory. Worked against Blood Angels last week at least.

Discussion: Adeptus Mechanicus / Rangers vs Vanguard (8th Edition)
« Last post by NoMoshing on September 30, 2017, 10:53:47 AM »
New edition, time for a new Rangers vs Vanguard debate! Yay!

I just started collecting AdMech a short while ago, and was wondering what everyone's thoughts on the basic Skitarii soldier was.

I'm looking forward to using Rangers as basically a point defense unit, getting them into cover and just wrecking enemy characters with the Arquebusiers. A 60", S7 AP -2 Dam D3 sniper rifle? Yes, please. It might even be the best sniper in the game that isn't a character.

As for Vanguards, their strength seems to be mobility. Assault 3 main weapons, bolstered by some Assault 2 plasma calivers, seems like what you want is for Vanguards to Advance all over the place, claiming objectives and exploiting weaknesses in the enemy.

Abbadon leads from the back, by buffing the preds and brutes and keeping the Cultists in check (holding the backfield).

If you want Chaos Lord-style support out front, then you should work a Daemon Prince back in. Difficult choices, I know.

The vindicare is not consistent with performance.... against some lists is very good, if there are not high value infantry units it becomes almost worthless....

I'll start testing an eversor in my deathwatch list. It seems better by the numbers even if it's gonna last 1-2 turns and it's very cheap

Yeah I was thinking a Sorc would be good, the Lord was there to stay with the Preds but I guess they can follow Abaddon and get the aura still
