I find when you're vs horde army or armies with plenty of light armor, and always on retreat!

usually i buy them when the enemy gets setup teams, so you dont have to invest in something like stormboyz :)
sometimes i'll get them vs blobby opponents as well, it can work wonders against catachans when you combine it with AWD to prevent them from avoiding it.

I use them primarily as anti-melee when combined with AWD. For that purpose I love them vs chaos and nids.

Of course they are also good vs stuff like eldar who go something like 3x shuriken and thus you can quite easily end up wiping their SUTs with the stikkbombs.

He's talking about the KN accessory wargear, not the unit squad.

Remember just to edit post instead of writing loads ^_^

I meant if you was using Knob get the nades vs them :) If you meant the unit then yes Weird Boy is much better, I think also Stikkbommaz use red so be careful.

Stikkbommas in their current iteration are top tier disruption units. Their melee special attack is fantastic for bodyguarding your back line units, and their stun bombs work on all types of units, as well as having a shorter cooldown and lower cost now.

Basically, play them as a stun first unit. Use the actual stikkboms as a chance at knocking something important over. I don't even factor the damage in anymore, and that's totally fine. You only need 1 squad of Stikkbommas because the cooldown on the abilities is short enough that they can constantly disrupt stuff so long as you have red resource available. In large fights of ranged blob vs ranged blob, the stun means that you are doing WAY higher DPS than your opponent. Try to think of Stikkbommas in that kind of light.
