Fair enough. If I get around to it soon, I'll send you what I come up with.

With the hive tyrant I made it with a heavy venom cannon!
I took down a dreadnaught in turn 6 of 6! I wasted all my shots on it. That was a very big mistake. Anyone got glue remover?

Well I was really looking forward to the end of this thread as I found all of your previous tips quite useful but I get more and more doubtful each day this will be finished... :|

Give him a break guys, it's the busiest part of the school year.
Mid terms are coming up though, and once those are in, there is no excuse :twisted:

I'm sorry guys...

I've been really busy lately with school and such. I'm not sure if I'm going to finish this guide. I'm probably not going to work on it for several more months. Hopefully the incomplete information present will at least be of some aid. Sorry I kinda let you all down...

I'll have to get around to adding that to the guide eventually

I use the ripper tactic you described. I run a wall of 5-10 in front of my devilgaunts or hormagants etc and due to interveining models my real troops get a 4+ cover save. I also use the venomthropes to give the rippers a 4+ cover save (because of stealth). If the enemy wastes a ton of shots at the rippers that means they aren't shooting at something else and they might waste Str 6-8 shots on them to auto kill a base. Don't be afraid to go to ground either and make the cover save 3+. Lastly they can tarpit some units well. I recently had one squad of 8ish hold up a chaos dreadnought for about 3 turns, it would kill 1-2, I would lose another 1 to failed fearless saves but it meant I could ignore it for the remainder of the game.

Not the best unit at all but I do think they have a use in a foot slogging nid army.

Regarding Uzi-Rippers (Rippers w/ Spinefists, thanks for the mental image btw). When I first started playing and had nothing else I ran a group of rippers with spinefists. Their shining moment that I have mentioned a LOT around here because it's just that funny: killing off Terminators.
