Default Great Knarlocs

I have been using eight Great Knarlocs (in two units of four) in my Apocalypse army and they are awesome in close combat!

I am now going to use four in my standard 1500pts army.

Anyone else discovered the joys of Great Knarlocs?

Well, they`re quite expensive, so, no...

Besides, ripping things up in CC is not my thing

I prefer Hammerheads as my "monsters".

You can get four for less than the cost of a Hammerhead so I don't think they are overpriced.

It takes a strength 10 weapon to cause 'instant death' and there are not too many of them about outside of a Tau army.

If you are looking for a unit to hold up those nasty fast assaulter's then these could be you guys!

Also keep in mind that in a non apocalypse game, the number of Great Knarloc that you can field is greatly reduced (see IA3)...in short you won't be able to use 4 of them...well not true at the most you'll be able to use 5 (If you are a tau army) spread among the 3 type of great knarloc.

I won't go in any more detail to avoid breaking copywrite.

Are you using the IA3 rules for that. 4 of the he Apocalypse version is definitely not going to be that cheap.

The Great Knarloc with the bolt thrower is great! I always load it up with explosive bolts and watch the gaunt body pile build up.

I was talking money-wise, not points - wise. And moneywise, you can buy nearly two Hammerheads for one Kroot Great Knarloc.

Definitely not worth, besides it is taking up valuable Heavy Support slots (IIRC, I don`t have my IA:3 at hand right now).

Cheers,

Sorry my mistake, I was talking points cost not money!

From what some of the previous posters have written I hadn't realised that you couldn't use Apocalypse troops in an ordinary game.

So you can use IA3 and/or Apoc stats in an Apoc game, whichever you think is the best but you can only use IA3 stats in a normal game, sounds a bit odd to me!

possibly because apocalypse (while quite cool as a concept) is really just a front by the company to clear out their warehouses before they re-designed most of the models found in the bulk buy sets* only really designed to for large scale engagements so the rules don't scale down



*Ooops, I wasn't meant to say that...

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

Your getting a bit cynical in your old age!

Maybe you are right about the Apoc troops but there are some pretty overpowering troop choices in the IA books which appear to be acceptable in normal 40K games.
