All and all a great troop choise. They are all right on their own but if you manage to give them psychic support they can become a wonderful unit. They are solid then it comes to dishing out wounds with their 2 shots at S4 and with - 3AP when you roll a 6 when rolling to wound. This makes even high toughnes targets a bit nervous around these guys. They can make use or pretty much all Craftwolrld tactics, except Saim Hann, although I find they work best with Ulthwe, because of their +1 to hit strategem. Beil Tan is also great, but if you can have a Autarch close by instead if you want. If you have several big blobs then Iyanden is great for giving you more survivability since they do not run. What the sadly lack is, as most other Craftworld infantry is just this, survivability. At T3 with with 5+Sv your oponent only have to look at them and they'll start dropping like flies. And at range 12 they can be a bit hard to get close enough to start pumping out shots. So how do you keep your guys alive? Well here are a couple of options. - Transports, put them in a Wave Serpent, perhaps with a warlock. Quite a pricy option but a solid one since the Wave Serpent itself is a great unit in itself.
- Webway Assault, pay 1-3 CP and drop in a 20 man squad 9 inches from an enemy unit and press delete. - Cant hit me, stack minus to hit modifiers like conseal, 2 CP for lightning fast reactions. Make it really shitty for your opponent and make them Alaitoc while you are at it, or to save som CP
- The celestial sheild, gives you small guys a 4+ invulsave or 3+ if combined with "Protect"
- Move move move, "Quickening gives makes it possible for a double move. Because of battlefocus you can also advance for free which should take yoy around 21 inches.
- Heavy tanking plattform, this is a cheap way to protect your guys from anti infantry fire. If you stay in cover you get 2+ Sv. If they shiit you with high AP then take the wound on your smaller guys and make an evil laugh.
