Re: Terminators for sm and chaos from a 1v1 view

I personally find in 1v1 that often an attempt to use terminators is shut down by an abundance of AV weapons. Since you cannot retreat them out getting hit for hundreds by constant lascannon shots every engagement quickly adds up and leads to model snipes. I would like them to be medium size targets...

Agreed on that.

But yeah I don't like the idea of it being DR based. Removes some of the skill wrt to timing with it, as well as wargear switching.

Re: Sub-commander for IG?Eversor Assassin? this is a suggestion . what u think?

There has been a lot of talk to give IG a psyker subcommander but not sure if it's really needed or what it would bring to the faction, especially that now spotters cover the anti-setup team spam which was the worst thing IG had to deal with. Artillery and AOE. Perhaps even something to control she...

Re: Tyranid AV and other issues

Possible solution: give venom an additional upgrade that increases range, does a light snare (ala rippers) and removes synapse benefits. This makes them more a dedicated source of av and less a part of ranged blob of doom May require a bit of tweaking for the right numbers It's an option for 2.7. A...

Re: Tyranid AV and other issues

I'm not buying your argument that Zoan spam at the moment is any less potent in 1v1s. Even if it was, Nids would still be completely imbalanced in 1s because they'd have no way of dealing with fast vehicles! You say the original version made the race toxic, but give no arguments to support. How is ...

Re: Tyranid AV and other issues

I think the majority of players would agree that the Zoanthrope Focused Warp Blast in its original, snaring state is preferable over the current implementation. On the basis that most players are 3v3 players, yes, I would suspect they would agree. Because zoans are far more viable in quantities oth...
