You Tube Video Amatuer Night! - Tactic Video



Pathfinders are an awesome unit, so are Piranhas! Get them to work together. Pathfinders are vulnerable units...a dirty look from a Space Marine can knock them over. So keep them close to or even behind their Devilfish for a cover save. Remember markerlights cannot be negated by cover so there really is no downside to hiding pathfinders behind other units.

This video isn't about keeping pathfinders alive...it's about seeker missiles. Arm your Piranhas with 2 seeker missiles each and you won't go home unhappy (unless you've got my luck and roll ones, habitually). Be sure keep those Piranhas alive though as you'll need them to contest objectives at the end of the game.

Piranhas should work the flanks, darting behind cover while their seeker missiles fly off to hit targets marked by Pathfinders. You can hit side and rear armor of vehicles, or hit marines cowardly hiding behind Rhinos. I'm sure you'll find uses for them.

Let me know what you think. I am constantly looking for ways to counter balance my horrible luck.

Old Shatter Hands for the Greater Good!

To fit a video into the post, next to the youtube video there is a long line of code labelled "embed".
Copy this line of code, then in the post editing window, click on the "edit html" or "source" or something similar button, and paste in that line of code at the point in the text that you want the video.
When you go back to regular editing mode, the video should be embedded (although it might not show up till you make the post, it might be simply a large blank space).

If you have any issues, feel free to email me from my blog
