Night Lord lord of war/flyer

Post by Jeffers » Sun Dec 10, 2017 4:32 pm

Im trying to decide on what to get for my Night Lord army.

I really want a lord of war or a flyer to play the role of anti vehicle.

I generally play fluffy so i want some opinions on what would fit best. Points are not the issue and im looking at a flyer or lord of war since in csm codex i dont like the khorny lord of skulls.

Im leaning to a typhon for that beasty cannon, what do you think. Is it fluffy or what be a better fit for the role

The Night Lords rely on terror/terrorist tactics. As their primarch was modeled, quite directly, off of Batman, the Typhon would be like Batman rolling around in a siege tank.

While not completely out of the ordinary (if you look at the ordnance that the newer Batmobile and the Arkham games batmobile used), and not a definite "never", it certainly wouldn't be something the Night Lords would use every time. A super-heavy tank would be more the kind of "it comes out when we play the occasional 2500-3000 point game".

Flyers, on the other hand, fit the bill rather well. If you are specifically looking for anti-tank, and are clearly not afraid of Forge World, might I suggest the Xiphon Interceptor. It boasts a significant amount of anti-tank firepower, and the speed to get to where it needs to be. It would also fit in with a Night Lords force exceptionally well.
Armies:
40k: Knights Cynosure Iron Hands successor chapter, House Terryn Questor Imperialis, Thousand Sons/Tzeentch Daemons
30k: Thousand Sons
Age of Sigmar: Sylvaneth, Disciples of Tzeentch

I am going to have to second this. Just watched that batrep vs Deathwatch and the Xiphon was nasty.

We generally play 2500 to 3000 point games. He justed dusted off his baneblade.

The strategm for 1cp for revenge of cadia (rerolls against chaos units) took untold casualties on my forces in the last mission. I need a great counter. I looked at the xiphon and the 10 wounds worried me as i know it will get one chance.
