About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

Are Warlock sergeants worth it?

Another thing I have begun to realise about my Eldar is the lack of anti-tank. I have Fire Prisms but they never get to shoot; I have Vypers but they want to shoot heavy infantry; I have shuriken cannon jetbikes but they always miss with a lousy BS3. The only reliable anti-tank is my Farseer with his trusty singing spear and his cousin Warlock and his Witchblade.

Against most armies they can wreak tanks as they have usually stayed still or moved only 6" and have rear armour 10 so 5 S9 attacks will almost certainly wreak something. However they are only 1 squad and against my Tau friend (who's tanks move 12" and fire) they do nothing unless they are very lucky.

So how to solve this problem. Simple take out the Night Spinner (which does nothing) and replace it by upgrading two 4-man jetbike teams with a Warlock. Who has a witchblade. And Embolden. This will make my now annoying jetbikes into tank killers; make them sub-par rather than Tau-terrible in combat and solve the annoying Ld 8 problem.

I must try this and see how it works out.

  1. "Tau-terrible" in combat! A certain broodlord comes to mind. Your right about the nightspinner though it does nothing and the points would be better spent elsewhere.
