You take multiple detachments losing nothing. That was the point that you missed.

Gargoiles are better due to the jump infantry type and the blinding venom even if they cost more. I’d like forgeworld more if they just made custom upgrade kits to make your units really stand out.

This is a decent option. Tyranid allied detachments may take up to one additional fortification from the list below. You can’t count the first two editions, because there was no concept of balance in a game malanthrop a Virus grenade. I remember Reece on FLG saying they tested this stuff out a very long time ago so its very possible that GW has multiple codexs ready to go for the past few months but only release a few a month to maximize profits.


Psychic support for malanthropf army.

Maybe there’s some OP tricks you can do with them with stuff from the Codex that I don’t know about. It may die and resurrect itself multiple times.

Even if you up it to t6h, that’s only sixty guardsmen, which doesn’t even last as a screen for two turns in competitive. Psychic Storm Support — Not psykers in a common sense, Tyranid creatures can still use the psychic power of the Hive Mind to a dreadful effect. Why are you restarting a conversation in a separate thread, like somebodies internet un-savvy grandpa?

Note however, that a Stone Wrecker Carnifex can not usse Adrenal Glands at all, so it is still quite slow in that regard, meaning the Tyrannocyte can provide the speed that a Stone Wrecker Carnifex needs in order to do damage.

At least not yet. You need some shield like gargoyles and carniflexs if you want to see them going up to close. The creature is remarkably quick, built more like a Hive Tyrant than a Carnifex, and may be an offshoot of that genus. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities. And yeah, btw, when they say “Use these super expensive resin models, it’ll be fun!


As you can see, they are not the best at anything, but they are a good second choice for all of those roles, with point 4 an uncommon exception which can win games, keep an eye out ruules it. Taking the pod will be your best bet in almost every circumstance. See, this detachment starts off with a mandatory HQ and three Troops.

But was it fun?

You get crushed mercilessly. So for example your first Flyrant might cost points, the secondthe thirdand so on.

But I wonder what the player and sales numbers look like in comparison to 40k. Fantasy Orks get so much cool stuff: I think this either needs to be implemented or malahthrope radius needs to be revisted OR blast needs to work like flails where the damage just keeps carrying over.

You — I believe- didn’t play 7th, so you can’t really form an opinion there.

As such the Malanthope makes a great HQ for friendly games, or when teaching a new player how the game works as they don’t effect the battle much at all other than provide synapse. Well, this is the highest level of competition, and if you are willing to bring the nastiest list malatnhrope tournament, then you are putting yourself at a massive disadvantage to every player.
