Default Need help using my Lictors

Hello all,

I want to incorporate a lot of lictors into my army. Mainly because I love the way the models look. My question is - does anyone know of any good tactics to use with a butt load of lictors ?? any nice combos, or who to pair your lictors with so they can do the most damage, strategies? I haven't bought the models yet but I really want to and just love the way they look.

Any help would be great.

I don't use lictors myself in my nid list but i do know they give off a pheramone trail that is utilised by the hive to lure other nids to targets. So therefore deepstriking units can deepstrike to the lictors position with no scatter. based on that, i'd say a lictor brood coupled with something like a trygon or 2 could prove deadly.

They also have Frag grenades(Flesh Hooks). They can "deep strike" within 1 inch of an enemy model and not scatter. Lictors can shoot with their Flesh Hooks, which is rending. They are initiative 6 as well. I don't run Lictors though. I usually run Hive Guard, Zoanthropes, and Venomthropes.

flesh hooks don't count as frag grenades...... and they are also good if you have mycetic spores because of the pheromone trail, what you normally would like to do though is use the hit and run in combo with ranged units and your flesh hooks and then run back into melee.

Sorry. What I meant to say is that they count as assault grenades.

Well, it doesn't cleary say it but this is what it says, "A model with flesh hooks always strikes in Initiative order when assaulting an enemy in cover."

combine licotrs with a mawloc or 2. deploy mawloc(s) initally with rest of army, on turn lictors arrive from reserve, burrow the mawlocs and they automatically deep strike next turn, and they do a large blast S6 AP2 upon entry if they land on top of enemies, which u can make them do with the lictor(s). Lictors can also deal with enemy HQ such as space marine captains or ork warbosses, with their rending claws and scything talons. be sure to deploy licotrs in cover so they survive long enough to deep strike your mawlocs and anything else dropping in.
