>> No.52057142

You'll get killed by the first horde army you play against. Killteam is a ton of fun, but it's grossly unbalanced towards higher model count armies.

It doesn't matter how beefy your DW dudes are, if you're looking at you firing (at max) six times a turn and some IG/Ork/whatever player firing 30 times a turn you'll lose on dice rolls alone.

They're your dudes, you can do whatever you want with them, just know that you'll be handicapped if you go up against certain armies.

Deathwatch Marines are tough but you could theoretically be facing an opponent with 5 times the amount of potential shooting units that you have.

The amount of people who play horde armies in Killteam just depends on your local meta. It's never a bad idea to have a conversation with your opponent beforehand or to try and find someone who is running a similar model count army.

So why does everyone speak so highly of shit like markerlights and lowly of nids and such when (from my experience at least), boards have so much multi-layered cover and TrueLoS hindering stuff that a full squad of dudes is almost never fully visible?

I've played friends whose pathfinders and such literally did not do shit all game. Can't see target and if you move, you snap shot making them just as useless. I've also played friends who have orks, nids and the like and they have given me and other terrible losses simply from moving through cover until 3/4 of his army is within charge range.

Wrong. "Factions" are no longer a factor. Lists are based on builds - for example you listed "IG" as mid - but only Psykana Division is OP with summoning, and most tournament lists marked as "IG" are just this formation + flyrants/deamons/magnus/eldar.

marines - okay, more choices - gladius, gravcents or deathstars
space wolves - deathstar

Slaanesh is better than Khorne in every way (except the shear quantity and quality of models of course).

Daemonettes are one of the best melee units in the game, Seekers are insane for that price.

Also everything is very flexible. They have psychic, can hunt down anything from GEQ to TEQ and even monstrous creatures and vehicles. They are just nice to have.
Slaaneshi Daemonic Artifacts are also very good.

Nurgle can be situationally better than Slaanesh, but definitely you want plenty of Daemonettes to summon.

These statements may be true, but it doesn't exclude the fact that the vast remainder of the Nid dex sucks. You can argue minmaxed buids, but the reason why Nids aren't on the same page as Tau or Eldar is because Taudar are not stuck in monobuild. They have some flexibility because the majority of their units are pretty solid, with very few truly shitty models. Yeah Nids have the Flyrant, but you can't name anything else in the codex that even comes remotely close. Mawlocs? They die the same turn they arrive if your opponent has a brain at all.

I kinda want to get this mentality out that having a single Riptide is "OP". It's not. They're the Tau's TEQ. It's fair if they can have one if you bring some Termies or a Land Raider. If they bring multiple and in the Wing, then yes that is pretty cheesy.

Also Kroot are shit. They're just expendable meatshields. Having a whole army oriented around them would be incredibly boring. If Tau auxiliaries had the same love that Genestealers then that would be fine.

A "fun" army to play against is something that tries to bring all the neat units into the battle in a combined arms fashion. Not just spamming any one single unit. A good Tau player would know that some well supported fire warrior unit is a cheaper and arguably better source of anti infantry fire power than the other units.

I'm so tired of hearing non Tau players complain about "muh Battlesuits or muh Riptides" They're there in the codex, they have a purpose, just like the FWs.source then any of the battle suits. Just because you get butthurt at the cheesemongers doesn't mean that the other Tau players have to stop using a particular unit. Quit bitching.
