Default A clever Tactic for using the Lash of Submission

Here is the trick. Get some Hunter Kindred Kroot mercenaries in your list. Now sniper rifles are good as is but place five punji traps on the table and you can use the lash to pin down units when you need to. As a bonus you have some great modeling opportunities as well. The only downside is giving up a heavy slot but for the cost this is a nice little squad to adfd ot your list.

Thoughts?

I've changed the Subject title Bebe, I felt that it sounded a bit... Provoking, considering how heated Lash discussions can become - Anton.

Generally my thoughts on lash abuse are that it's abusive :P

It's an interesting idea, and one that could be made fluffy by careful manipulation of the background (kroot-count-as-loxatl springs to mind). But personally I find these kind of combinations destructive to the good spirit in which I prefer to play the game.

Im confused are you sending them into punji traps? or hoping they trigger punji traps?

since they only trigger it on doubles, taking a terrain test right?
