We saw that done in a game last week - and its hurt big time!
In the bug players defense it was his second time playing the game.
There were three tunnel markers within 18" of the entrance. The result was 14 dead warriors and 9 dead Blister bugs (don't ask me why the blisters were underground, the new guy was learning how to play...). But it was a devestating attack that broke the bug army right there and then.
Indeed, I think it was 63 warriors in addition to what you mentioned... that was a close game, that. His force did well despite the lack of assets, and those three tankers acted as great fire sponges.Gregor said:In the War of the Species Tournament Low Roller fielded something like 3 tankers, 6 hoppers and the rest warriors - Priority 3. If you spend 300 to 400 points on assets you are going to struggle - and things are harder when you are limited in the number of things that can emerge from a tunnel entrance, the reactions are going to make life hairy.
Similarly a plasma bug might find it only has one shot before there are swarms within its minimum fire range.
Just added complications when choosing a force !!!
