Any thoughts on this spiderfang list?

FORMATIONS

Spiderfang VenomMob (100)

WOUNDS: 138 TOTAL POINTS: 1940 / 2000

 

Before we get a spiderfang book and they each become separate units, how would you equip the arachnaroks?

3 Shrines if you can afford it. Otherwise drop one for a flinger I guess

You cannot multicast Gift of the Spider Filth any more, but I recall that they are the same cost anyway - so probably 3 wizards or maybe 2 wizards and one flinger (as the rule of one will stop you using up all 6 spells).

 

I played against the 1,000 point version of this army and it was horrific. Worth reiterating that the formation only buffs the wound rolls and not the hit rolls (but the battleshock immunity is nice).

I was thinking the same, the Flinger kinda stinks and they are the same points. May as well have some spell defense, throw out some more mortal wounds and add some shielding!

This is a nice Deathstar/Wrecking ball, but I'm starting to worry about having all the eggs in one basket. You need to be in close to benefit from the aura buffs, and some of these units are really weak on their own. Though I guess a couple of Araknaroks could hold their own :)

You only know 3 spells and each can cast twice so having 3 will only be beneficial for the hero keyword (for the GHB scenario) other than that it's as optimal as your gonna get just using the 3 available spider units :-)

I overlooked that they get 2 spells...kinda makes 2 Flingers a bit better.
