  sacrab markers may be placed on any one enemy squad from a company or support squad within 50 cm. This effects the whole squad, not just one unit in the squad, for they would be swarmed with 100s of these little crab like robots biting and clawing at all of them not just a hand full of guys

    I played the Slann last week and couldn't move my army through the Mantis missiles. We played for 4 turns and there were a total 20 Mantis templates on the board and my opponent only had mechs and no launchers. It was fun for him but when you are playing a chaos army if you can't move you lose. My opponent agreed the Mantis missiles for mechs are tough. We decided to try out making it a rule that the Mantis missiles on mech need to be reloaded like the manticores. Also can someone explain the scarabs?
    Do they attach themselves to one unit in the squad and move onto the next if it wins close combat? Or does it attach to the whole squad? Even with its nulifying field if the squad is spread out it wouldn't be able to affect them all, would it?

    Attach themselves to one unit, if the unit is wiped out remove the counter. The effects extend to the attached unit only, the whole unit.

    I am not satisfied with the wording on this, nor its performance and would like to change it. Suggestion?
    Also, why don't the Kroxigor come with a Necron lord like the skinks do? They should cost 175 with the Necron Lord and this allows the Slann player to take an additional special card.

    The reasoning was that they were better trained and didn't need a necron nurse maid like the other units. I could go either way on this point.
    We like the Slann and Necrons but think they need to be play tested more.

    Absolutely. Since quite a few slann players have cropped up I suggest to lay down what you want changed so we may change it. At this point all of you are more qualified than I to point out what needs to be changed since it seems you have more playtesting under your belt with the slann than perhpas I have.

    Many thanks for the input.
