first here is my list:
Swarmlord w/ 2 X tryant Guard with lash whip
Tervigon w/ S Talons, Adrenal glands, Regen
Tervigon w/ S Talons, Adrenal glands, Regen (counts as troops)
Termagant X 11 w/ devourer, Spore
Hormaguant X 14 w/ toxin sacks
Genestealer X 10 w/ toxin sacks
Genestealer X 11 w/ toxin sacks
hive guard X 2
hive guard X 2
Doom of Malan'tai w/ Pod
So the new units are the swarmlord, the doom, and the termagaunts with devourers. I have never ran these guys in a pod and with the big guns since it makes them pretty expensive. I have heard good things soooo I will try them out.
The swarmlord will be interesting. I usually run a tryant fully decked out so his cost is not bad. I am just hoping I can get him into combat so he can tear some stuff up. I do lose the hive commander option of bringing a troop through outflanking so tervigon coming in from the side to eat some unsuspecting unit. He does give me the +1 to reserve roll and the reroll on outflanking for my stealers so I can't complain.
the last guy I am trying out for the first time is the Doom. I hear people swear by this guy so I guess we shall see how it goes. I am going to have to brush up on the rules for him though... If he does well I might just have to start putting him in more of my armies.
So there is my list for the next 3 weeks. I will run it no matter what comes up (unless I cant find an 1850 game to play) after this trial run, I will evaluate each of these units and give my rating for each.
questions? comments? nom, nom, nom?
