1750 crowe crownies dilemma

Post by piquedram on Mon May 07, 2012 8:03 am

Alright, so I decided to mix up my crowe force, but I'm doubting between 2 possibilities now, depending on wether i put my purifiers in rhinos or razorbacks:

Rhinos
- Crowe
- 6 purifiers, 3 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, rhino
- 6 purifiers, 3 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, rhino
- 5 purifiers, 2 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, rhino
- 5 paladins, 4 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer
- Vindicare assassin
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Sword, Hvy Incinerator, Personal teleporter
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Sword, Hvy Incinerator, Personal teleporter

Lasbacks
- Crowe
- 6 purifiers, 3 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, lasback
- 6 purifiers, 3 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, lasback
- 6 purifiers, 3 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, lasback
- 5 paladins, 4 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Sword, Hvy Incinerator, Personal teleporter
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Sword, Hvy Incinerator, Personal teleporter

which do you guys think is better, 3 twin linked lascannons, or 1 assassin and 6 extra firing ports? I have noticed that often in objective games 1 or 2 of the rhinos just sit still on their objective and the purifiers shoot their psycannons from the hatch.

Brother piquedram,

i can see where you are having dificulty with the choice. my advice would to be to go for the rhinos as you could fire more weapons from the hatch than that of the TL lascannon.

when it comes to the tank hunting the dreadknights are more than capable of putting a dent in the side where as when the squads are in the tanks in the LASBACKS list they lack the anti infantry fire but with the Psycannons in the rhinos that problem is overcome.

i hope my advice has helped,

P Very Happy

Thanks for the input pingpong!

I really love my dreadknights, so far they've always been the stars of the show. Perhaps I should do a more "spammy" army and do the following:

- Crowe
- 5 purifiers, 2 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, Rhino
- 5 purifiers, 2 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, Rhino
- 5 purifiers, 2 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, Rhino
- 5 purifiers, 2 halberds, 2 psycannons, hammer, Rhino
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Teleporter, Hvy Incinerator, Greatsword
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Teleporter, Hvy Incinerator, Greatsword
- Nemesis Dreadknight, Teleporter, Hvy Incinerator, Greatsword

that's only 1686 points! But I do lose my paladins to make room for the 3rd NDK, which might not be a good trade...

I think that you should keep that option open if you were up against a large tank army like IG as that would be nasty but pallies have their uses as being really mean in CC as i found out with my 10 man pallie squad and draigo in a LRR, but 3 DKs would strike fear into your opponent with 4 wounds each and they are just giant walking killing machines. but it all depends on what suits you best.
