Thank you to everyone who has already submitted their army lists to our Clinic, we hope that our responses have given you some pointers and were useful. Our very first army list in for review was from a reader called James, so I just wanted to
take the time and say thanks for emailing in your list James, and lets have a look at it.
Flyrant duel Devs, Old Ad.
Tervigon 3 powers Toxin Sacs crushing claws – warlord
3 x Hive
1 x Dom
Tervigon 3 powers Toxin Sacs
Devour Gaunts in spore Pod
a 1250pt tourney in UK, any help would be appreciated.
Firstly, I want to say the list is very solid for its
points level. Choosing to take the Tervigon as your Warlord may seem like a
good idea, because it is tough to kill, but I don’t believe it is necessar. I
think it is a much more sound strategic idea to take the Tervigon as another
troops choice, this way you have 2 rock hard scoring Monstrous Creatures that
can push forward when needed to take those objectives.
Without much information if this list is working for
you or not, it’s quite difficult for us to critique, but if you’re looking for
changes/improvements, I will give a couple of ideas where I think the list could be improved by changing wargear, but would require some more models. So, I would be
tempted to drop the additional powers on both of the Tervigons, this frees up
60pts to start with, at 1250pts you don’t have many points to play with, the
additional powers are nice and vastly increase the chances of Arm, but we
have to trim the fat at tournament level. The 60pts dropped can be used to give
the first Termagant brood a Spore Pod and Devourers, this then gives you 3
units that will drop in the ever reliable pods right in your enemies face and
with the Hive Tyrant Swooping to support them, giving them both
Preferred Enemy, you will have a devastating alpha strike. To make this
more reliable though, I would then be tempted to drop the crushing claws on the
Tervigon that was originally your Warlord and invest the points in Hive Commander
on the Hive Tyrant to make your alpha strike that much more reliable.
So with the minor tweaks mentioned above your list should
look something like this:
Hive Tyrant w/ wings, dual devourers, old adversary and
hive commander - 310
3 Hive Guard – 150
Doom in Pod – 130
