    His army looks a lot like MikhailLenin’s army

      I think that may have been the inspiration for his army.

    If/when I build a Ravenwing I’m going for a squadron of 5 speeders with two hvy bolters each. Decent value and hard kill point to give up (10 hull points) for 30 st 5 shots. Tasty.

        Yep, we certainly missed a few things this game. At that point we were in the ‘how could this game possibly get turned around at all” mode.

        Some games just go so sideways in the first turns you questions whether to go on or not… but we gave it the old college try!

    Correcting me if I’m wrong but I thought you couldn’t assault when coming in from reserves? Just wondering because he assaulted with his attack bike after coming in from reserves.

      You are correct, we just goofed. Haven’t played in a while.

    Dakka fexes were workhorses for me at TSHFT. I think people disregard units that are overpriced rather then give them a chance. Its not like tyranids can’t makeup the points by taking undercosted stuff elsewhere.

      Iirc dakkafexes did really good at the bao with a shooty army. Think he won all but last 2 games. With a lot of str 6+ ap4 could be useful since wounded on 3+ instead of 2+. You might be on to something…

      They perform quite well for me as well, I am contemplating putting 1 or 2 in my list, too.
