Default My CraftWolrd, ADVICE NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I am playing a anti- NId craftworld and I thought that becase my Craftwolrd in fluff attacks nids so much, that they can not use the slow wraithlord/guard. So I am not useing Wraithlord/guard. I am going to use lots of Rangers, and Dire Vengers. I am playing a sub-Alaitoc, but I am still gogin to use their rules.I also want 1 team of reapers, a Falcon,and a war walker???? I dont know much about war Wakers. So anyone got advice or conmments???

You will want sactter lasers on most of your walkers, these have the capacity to mow through broods, and even hurt the big guys. But D6 shots may turn out to be just one, perhaps Shuriken cannons would be better? Not often you see them these days.

Depends on the army your fighting. If your fighting nids with lots of guants and such, scatter laser. If your fighting a few larger creatures, go with a starcannon( wait, can't you put both on?)

rangers wound anything on a 4+ so no anti-big nid needed. just go for a few ranger squads of 5, DA in a WS, a falcon w/ SL and a seer on jb w/ eldtrich storm supported by some dual SurikenCannon vypers.

viola, ant-nid.

I think the choice of guns if very import. I agree with Dizzy aswell. Dual shuriken cannon vypers kick ned butt. Trust me I know. I've done it. Secondly I would however go with lots of shuriken cannons and starcannons NOT scatter lasers, they are just too unreliable. Sure theres a possibility that you can 12 shots with 2 of them on warwalkers. But the odds are the same for getting 2 shots.

As for genreal advice. Deployment is a very crucial stage when playing nids, you might want to put a lot of thought into this and how your enemy plays. My tactic is too deploy my guardian squads in rows so that when the first squad gets assulted there as good as dead but you leave your other squads just out of consolodation range but colse enough that when cc is resolved you run forward at the nids and shell them.

If you can see that you are definetely going to get assulted and there's nothing you can do about it (and your using assult weapons of course) then charge the nids! your higher initiative will uaully mean you strike first and denying your enemy the extra attack and giving it to you may mean there's a better chance that you might just kill that extra one model that could make a world of difference.

and leave the big nids to the falcon/war walkers.

Precisely. Because if you take too many heavy weapons you simply wont have enough shots to kill swarms of gaunts.
