The Dimachaeron comes in as the best close combat option Tyranids This sounds vaguely like the old Hormagaunt rule which added 3′ or. The Dimachaeron is one impressive model to see on the tabletop and it’s stats are no different. It has 14 wounds and we’re not seeing a drop in. So I got myself a Dimachaeron. Probably the nastiest thing the Nids have access to right now. I need a rule clarification. The rule for one of.

Barbed Hierodule and Harridan. Malanthrope, if they fix the “units vs models” text in its ability, is crazy-good. Like, almost unreasonably so.
Stonecrusher Carnifex is also way cheaper than the regular one for some ruless I don’t get it at all, especially since it comes with better weapons. Heirodules continue to be shitty at shooting, and unlike most other titanic units they get no “make more attacks but weaker” option, which hurts a lot simachaeron the Scythed Heirodule. I think a lot of people are gonna go nuts over the Harridan- “omg it can move 30 inches and charge and it’s got thirty wounds and it can move over everything and and and and and!
I’ll take Swarmlord and two Harpies, thanks. If it would affect units, it wouldn’t it be broken? It is only 90 points unless I’m missing something and being a character AND affecting all unit types, not just Infantry… I think it’s already quite strong even if it only affects models. Also why does it need to be fixed? Azrael only affects models as well, so I didn’t think it was a mistake… Tules if the range is quite limited. He seems really good, but isn’t cheaper?
Carnifex 67 with two pairs of Scything Talons 20 and Tresher Scythe 7 costs 94 points. Stonecrusher 80 with two Wrecker Claws 18 and Tresher Scythe 7 costs points. I have Scythed simachaeron. I really need to build and paint that beast. Yeah, a giantsized Tresher Scythe would be great. He seems really good but also is really expensive: I’m also getting confused about the massive Scything Talons.
You can buy a single one or a pair, but everyone as two monstrous scything talons? So two is one pair? Is there a Tyranid model that only has a single scyting talon? Shouldn’t the Scythed Hierodule have four? Or is it two pairs? But the Harridan and the Barbed Hierodule only have one pair, but it says twoarglbarlgalgerl. Azrael affects models, but that’s fine because models take saves individually. You can’t shoot at models individually, only at units, so it makes no sense for the Malanthrope’s Shrouding Spores to affect models.
If it functions they way they intended, it’s probably pts not 90 and works on units, rather than models. The zoanthrope only affects infantry units, so in a way, its better for your big guys. Yeah, if all it gives the benefit to is monsters and other big stuff I could live with it as priced. But affecting whole squads of infantry while being untargetable is absurdly good.
Dimachaeron – 1d4chan
I think Harridan’s could be hilariously obnoxious. Not necessarily good or even rilesbut 30″ move, can shoot in combat, can drop gargs, leave and charge anything else. All while usually going first due to having a single pt model. Of course, the output isn’t exactly stellar, and neither is the survivability, while the cost is very high. The barbed dimcahaeron literally just a 48″ Heavy 6 12 total version of a hive guard impaler for almost 10 times the cost, while still only hitting on 4s…sad.
Was S10 really too much? Not even a Dam 3 or something to compensate?
The scythed does get a anti-horde flamer pistol at least, and I believe? So I don’t think it’ll perform horribly lacking a “stomp” equivalent dimacharron but it probably could’ve done with it. Who wants to bet that’s supposed to be pts, and FW stuffed up enough to miss pts?
Double unsaved against Titanic and Buildings? I have a Stone Crusher Carnifex with one bio-flail and one wrecker claw. I am in combat with a unit of 10 enemy models, all of which are within 2″ of me. How many attack rolls do I make if I elect to: Your attacks are otherwise as normal. You also make 10 additional Dimacheron Hit rolls with the Bio-Flail.
So you fight with your Wrecker Claw and so you make 10 hit rolls against the unit with that weapon. If you split your attacks between them, you make ten attacks divided as you choose between them. But I dimahaeron it’s bad rule design, when you consider that aoe effects aren’t a thing anymore and model placement isn’t really necessary to avoid them.
Oh, no, I’m not actually presuming that’s how it works, that’s just the horrible, horrible text as written. What it should’ve been is a “each time this unit makes its attacks, it can make X extra attacks with this weapon” type of thing, like all of the other weapons like that.
But FW loves to hold onto outdated rules concepts, so…. Vote Up 0 Vote Down. June 27, 9: That said, he is only slightly more expensive and well worth it. June 27, June 28, dimachaaeron Ah ok, that makes sense. So it would only work on units consisting of a single model? June 28, 9: June 28, June 29, 2: You double the damage value against targets with the Titanic or Building keyword.
June 28, 4: June 28, 5: Which is stupid and no tournament will play it that way, but that’s what it says. July 6, 2:
