This was pasted from Dakka Dakka. My post had 73 hits and no replies. Not much <3 for Dakka anyway, is why I am happy to have found my old Portent area again cus this place is rather nice.
Ok, after the new release of this army, I have upgraded what I had (about 1k pts), to around 2k (technically its 2018 to fit my Marine army). I have many many Spore Mine models and really wanted to use them. It also fits the fluff that this is an army that hits hard and fast, then fades away (hence all the spore mines). So, I know people have certain feelings towards them here, just keep in mind this army wants to find ways of maximizing the potential that they have (that and I have about 30mines so I want to use as many as possible in my games). So, here is my army list, feel free to constructively criticize and support any comments with some personal opinions and also statistical data.Thank you.
-Krieg Tyrant aka Skull F*cker. (if you saw this awesome model, you would understand the name the IG gave this thing ^^ ; ) :
scything talons/rending claws/winged(WIP still)/tox miasma/toxin sacs/I+WS glands/warp scream
-Blitz Tyrant (my newer model)
enhanced senses/ext carapace/tox sacs/Venom Cannon/TL Devourers
I+WS glands/tox sac/ext carapace+
(2)scy talons x2= 33pts each
(2) scy talons/rending claws=35pts each
enhanced senses/ext carapace/tox sac/scy talons+
(1) venom cannon=41pts
(4) death spitter=34 pts each
-Frag Mine Clusters
(3) 3 frag mines=24 pts per cluster
total: 72 pts
-(3) Bio Acid Biovores=55pts each
enhanced senses/barbed strangler/venom cannon/spore cysts/reinforced chitin/WS gland=172pts each
Krieg Gaunt (hormogaunt)
(28)WS gland/tox sac=13pts each
Army total: 2018pts
Total # of models:approx 95 (I am sure its greater if the Mines stay alive)
Now would it be better to split my troops of 28, into those of 14? This would allow me to spread my troops out more and cover more area. With 11 Synapse Creatures, I dont think it would be a problem. My only issue would be survivability........
Again, please take into account how to maximize all the spore mines I have. I want to use these, as I have been using them for 3+ years and really enjoy them. Any tips/comments/constructive criticism is appreciated. Thank you.
