yes i did just copy and paste a whole lot but i think this would be a fun list to play even if i would have to buy twice as many carnifex's as i currently have to do it

The problem with a list like that is that you can't deal with flyers really at all. A strormraven list will murder it, or eldar flyers. I made a similar list that is a "slight" bit more balanced. :)

2000 Nids Batallion and Vanguard
HQ B1 1 Old One Eye
B1 1 Swarmlord
HQ V1 1 Malanthrope

Troops B1 3 Ripper Swarms
B1 3 Ripper Swarms
B1 3 Ripper Swarms

Pod B1 1 Tyrannocyte
5 Barbed Stranglers


Elite V1 3 Hive Guard
V1 3 Hive Guard
V1 3 Hive Guard



Heavy B1 3 Carnifex
Scything Talons*2
Thresher Scythe


B1 3 Carnifex
Scything Talons*2
Thresher Scythe

B1 2 Carnifex
Scything Talons*2
Thresher Scythe
AG

Models 30 Total

Hive guard can deal with things at range, rippers for objectives, drop down swarmlord for 1st turn assault and he is a Distraction Swarmlord to allow the fexes to get closer! Malanthrope gives the core carnifex units the -1 BS to enemy fire.

I had a really close game vs orks with 100+ boys, 6ish killa kans and a gorkanought. Hive guard shot down the gort but he barely overpowered me in CC, at the end he had like 20 boys left and I was tabled lol.

hi grendel,

there are two perspectives: fluff/style and competitiveness

i think an army of 19 fexes stomping across the table will intimidate many opponents, and will look really impressive.
and it sounds like it would be fun to play for a couple of games.
but it might get boring soon.

if you play in a small gaming group where everyone knows what to expect, it will be hard to win, cause they can quickly adjust to your army build.
i donĀ“t play tournaments but good players will know what to do against your wall of fexes.


try to borrow some fexes form your friends (if they have) and give the list a go!!
