I recently bought 60 plaguebearers (last month) and now I'm only missing a couple of units from building my smite/pb wall list. my only issue is with each new primaris release, my army becomes worse and worse, and thats basically all anyone plays in my area.
It seems the eliminators can wipe out all of my smite characters and support characters for the PB's and such, without even having LoS, and I can't do anything about it.
Can anyone offer any advice for me to tweak my army to help deal with this kind of thing, or should I just scrap it and start over?
I'm sure I can return them as they're all still in the plastic (other than the first box I began painting) but they're from element and I don't know the process.
It just seems utterly pointless to me to spend all that time painting 60 PB's and doing tzeentch DP conversion for them to not be any good in my local meta.
Honestly I'm a returning player who doesn't really know how to play properly any more, and I was told my a few people that this style list would be good for my playstyle, till the PB's got nerfed.
am I seeing an indirect PB nerf here with how ultramarines work now. it seems to be everyone is gonna run 3x3 of those snipers and just kill all my psykers before I have a chance to do anything.
needless to say this is really stressing me out here. I'm not made of money and I just dropped about 400 pounds on this army. I can't be having it get hard countered by every single army in my area.
Ideally I'd like to just tweak my army to be able to counter these snipers, but I have no idea how to do it.
I was going to just DS daemon on them, but apparently if they're screened from charging, this is useless.
someone else recommended long range fire, but I know very little about this.
hopefully you guys can help me out here as my head is ruined over this.
the army is a pretty standard psychic plaguebearer list. I run bloodletters and pinks in the warp to deepstrike, and othert than the psykers I run contorted epitome and khorne DP. I'm happy changing stuff to get better results though.
should I get 3 x deredeos with butcher canons or something and just try and blast them to bits?
