To be fair, if that happens, they'll have enough biomass to steamroll through the entire damocles gulf. Then it' take a shit-ton of marines just to stop them again.

Out of curiosity -since I haven't been keeping up to date with the rumors- but does this new burrowing ability allow 'nids to avoid interceptor fire and charge on the turn they deep strike?

Yeah, that's my point. When a dude can go at the ETC with an army, every single year, and hand out at least one tablewipe, every single year, that army is subpar at worst.

>> No.28050796

I don't believe so. It can buy a single Support System, so can be upgraded to have it, though.

Remember that Hit and Run isn't automatic now. It still has to beat you in a D6+Initiative roll-off, or you keep it locked in combat. And with its miserable Initiative, you've got good odds of stopping it getting away. A bigger problem is it Nova-charging its Jet Pack to escape when an assault unit starts closing in.

>> No.28050817

I run Khorne Marines and Daemons and the local Tau player usually gets a Khorne Daemon prince rammed up it's butthole fairly fast or it gets swarmed by Khorne Bikers, so I am pretty good at dealing with the Nova jump pack.
