Default Tiger Shark or Three Knarlocs?

I am going to Warhammer World next week and am either going to buy a Tiger Shark or three Great Knarlocs.

Which would you buy and why?

Tiger shark.

Then again I have 12 knarloc rider, 3 great knarloc, 3 baggage knarloc and 3 bolter knarloc...so I don<t need any other knarloc.

But joking aside I would say Knarloc, because you are more likely to be able to use them in-game...more so then a flyer.

Knarlocs!!! Once you go Kroot, your a brute!!! ;D

EDIT: in seriousness if you play appocalypse then the tigershark is probably a better choice.

Do you like painting armor or flesh?

Both are great centerpieces, it really just comes down to what you think you'd enjoy looking at more.

Personally, Kroot are a huge part of my army (I never run less than 60), so I would feel obligated to get the Great Knarloc.

But Flyer needs your opponent concent first and you need ot give him enough warning so he can build a list around that, whereas knarloc are fair games.

Great knarlocs .... whats the point? without power weapons the best of the CC opponents will just eat them. I'd say go for the tigershark as giant ap3+ templates are what I refer to as, marine vaporizers.

Euhm... Isn't it a Monsterous Creature? Then why would it need a powerweapon, MC don't need them they always ignore the save.

I'm not really sure what to get. They are both great models. I never played Apoc or used the models, so I'm not sure about how they play. I have their rulles, just don't own the models (yet). I would say Tigershark, if only because I like the mobility and survivability. Just make sure you get the AX-1-0 and not the ony with the Ionheads. If you are going big you may as well do it right.

It's really up to you. Do you have enough Kroot to take the Knarlock? I know there is no restriction, but it just looks better that the Knarlock isn't the only Kroot model. I could do the same for the Tigerashark and ask if you have enough tanks. If you only have a few the Tigershark will get shot to pieces pretty fast. So tell me more about you army and playstyle.

Knarloc require 1 kroot squad in your troop choice.

And IIRC they can rend and they come along side kroot goads

I still say that despite the cool design of the Tigershark (and I will get one eventually) the fact remain that it is a flyer and it's one of thevtwo categorie of models (along side super-heavies) that requires explicite conscent of your opponent. It is Worth ocnsidering if you gonna spend all that money on a model...make sure you will be able to use it.

While I am always a big large manta sized fan of flyers, I think that the Knarlocs would be better for a few reasons.

A: Knarlocs will go good for a Tau army or even a Kroot Merc army if you feel that you want to try something a little different. A flyer can only really be used by the Tau.

B: The Knarloc might be cheaper. Economy in Crisis.

C: You might be able to convince your opponent to allow you to use the Knarloc easier then you could get him/her to let you use the flyer. A lot of people are not packing Anti Air weaponry and will just plain out not play if there is a flyer.

D: The Knarloc might stirke fear into your opponent. The Knarloc looks cool and vicious. All flyers look like... well, flyers.

No. What I am saying is that my Air Support has lots of Ground Cadre.

If a Land Raider dies to a rail gun, and no one was around to see it, does the kill point still exist?
