Thinking of using 3 to 6 of these each with a cheap HQ so that I can add 1 or 2 Spearhead Detachments for the extra CPs.

 

But am I reading/understanding the rules correctly

 

  • 36pts each
  • Instinctive Behaviour : -1 to hit distant targets without a Synapse
  • Does not need line of site

And the one I think is the deal clincher

  • Spore Mine Launcher : Basically I am not over concerned if I miss or have -1 to hit, I still get a mine on the Battlefield.

 

Has anyone tried a Sporocyst ? With the Barbed Strangler weapon it can put out upto 30 Strength 5 AP -1 shots, Can it hold an objective ?

Biovores are amazing as they are able to put mortal wounds out of LoS for cheap. Not much else you can ask for. Biggest problem is lack of model availability frankly.

Sporocyst: yes, max 30 shots, but average 18 shots, and 6 hits due to BS5+. Stick with the deathspitter. You get 15 shots there, only 3 fewer on average, for half the points.

Biovores are great. Move them a millimetre and get the 1
-1 to hit, the spore mine is generally worth it.
