MALANTHROPE RULES PDF

In the wild west days of 8th edition, this mamajamma, the Malanthrope , was an auto-include, but thanks to Chapter Approved, it is not quite the most optimal choice, but it is still a good one. Of course, if you want more awesome tricks and tips, check out that Tactics Corner that Frontline keeps updating. This does not stack with Venomthropes. The Malanthrope is all about the support, and while other Tyranid HQs offer their own brand of kill, Malanthropes really are about protecting our swarms and maybe boosting their combat abilities if you can line up the shot. Just like Venomthropes, the real reason that you take a Malanthrope is for that sweet, sweet -1 to hit at range penalty that Tyranids rely on to survive.

In the wild west days of 8th edition, this mamajamma, the Malanthrope , was an auto-include, but thanks to Chapter Approved, it is not quite the most optimal choice, but it is still a good one. Of course, if you want more awesome tricks and tips, check out that Tactics Corner that Frontline keeps updating. This does not stack with Venomthropes. The Malanthrope is all about the support, and while other Tyranid HQs offer their own brand of kill, Malanthropes really are about protecting our swarms and maybe boosting their combat abilities if you can line up the shot.

Just like Venomthropes, the real reason that you take a Malanthrope is for that sweet, sweet -1 to hit at range penalty that Tyranids rely on to survive. Whether this is protecting some big beasties from some big shots or helping to protect a swarm of little ones, it is all gravy. First, the Malanthrope always affects Monsters and other big gribblies. There is no way to turn that off other than just outright killing the Malanthrope. This really is a big deal as one of the biggest issues with Venomthropes is that they can easily be killed by any decent shooting, especially shooting that does require LoS.

Throw in that a Malanthrope has 9 wounds at T5, and it is easy more resilient than a squad of Venomthropes. The Malanthrope is a Monster, so even Vindicares will struggle to easily kill it.

The Malanthrope also does have a way to up the sheer kill of the rest of your army. Again, this is not always easy to do, but it is achievable. You need to plan a turn or two ahead to get it go off though since your opponent has to leave a target open for you where you can get it killed and get the Malanthrope there in time to celebrate. Hive Fleet here is more about what army you are running rather than what is good for the Malanthrope.

Since Malanthropes Fly thanks FAQ , with Kraken, they advance faster and can fall back and charge, which helps them line up that assault with another unit to get Prey Adaptation to go off. Well, it is naturally slow at only movement 5, and as a Monster, it cannot go wherever it wants to go.

This is mitigated by having more than 1, but then, we run into another larger problem here: a Malanthrope is not cheap. There was a glorious time when they were sub points, but those times are gone, and now we are left with a point Malanthropes.

This makes the Malanthrope a specific choice: can you live with 1, or do you need to lose a bit of kill in order to protect what else you have. It is a tough choice, and really, it comes down to the individual list. Still, that can be enough. Smart model placement is key, but if you can keep these big floating snakes alive, they can keep the rest of your army alive as well. Thanks as always for reading, and here we go again, going through some unit entries to see what we can see.

AbusePuppy Malanthrope, if they fix the "units vs models" text in its ability, is crazy-good. Like, almost unreasonably so. Stonecrusher Carnifex is also way cheaper than the regular one for some reason? Heirodules continue to be shitty at shooting, and unlike most other titanic units they get no "make more attacks but weaker" option, which hurts a lot on the Scythed Heirodule.

Jump to: navigation , search A face only Cthulhu would love. A Malanthrope is an odd creature created by the hive mind to collect specific DNA strands and is found lurking around war torn battlefields.
