Darrell discusses fearless units and how to use the cheapest of them for some proper gaming action.
Have that Tervigon with adrenal glands and toxin sacs within range and spawning gaunts and all of a sudden the nudeist 5pt gaunts have furious charge and poison (4+) so (on the charge) s4 i5 wounding always on 4 with re-rolls if they are for example against a marine troop or trooper with lower toughness.
When I still played Tyranids I loved using gaunts to tie up big shooter units so my genestealers could move about unhindered. Gaunts tie them up, genestealers charge in later for the kill.
I once had a unit of fearless Hormagaunts on an objective, went to ground, and survived shooting and stayed winning me the game
i love turning this tactic against my friend who plays imperial guard gun lines. rows of shooty infantry. thing is, he gets stuck with a model I’ve dubbed wolf priest Leonidas. a wolf priest with saga of the warrior born. it takes a bit, but i build my kills per turn, and if i get lucky, combat ends on his turn with my priest having killed ten dudes. this means that i get ten extra attacks when my priest attacks on my turn. i love glassing three or so infantry squads with the one guy. soooo much fun.
