It's been almost two weeks since my last post. In part, I've not really managed to get a game in; last weekend things went nuts and poor communication this time around meant I lurked in a gaming store for a bit, then bought some foam for my Warmachine project.
Lately, I've been delving into the 'nids. I think I'm getting comfortable with some of the ways they play, but admittedly, I've not yet tried everything with them.
Stuff I have Used
Footslogging Melee Warriors
These, I'm pretty comfortable with.
Stuff I have NOT used so much
I'm curious to hear what readers have thought of these. Please, share experiences both in fielding them (bonus points if you provide context of lists/scenario...) and in fighting against them.
I admit I'd like to try Hormies and Raveners, and I'll EVENTUALLY get those bloody harpies converted...
Stuff I Don't Use Much, But Have A Pretty Firm Opinion ON
-90pt filler/diversion, or look elsewhere
-I'd not take more than a couple of 2x scything talon in a brood, if that.
-No, frag spines are NOT really worth it. The only time you really care about them is charging heaps of powerfists in cover, and powerfists will generally kill you.
-Solid support, BUT only in certain builds.
-....why? Competes with your honest-to-god shooty units and kills infantry. What do we have that CAN'T carve up infantry in other slots
THere are probably others.
At any rate, I'm looking to viewers/readers for inspiration here. Work's been more insane than usual, so I've got less brainpower to go around.
