I'm not just thinking about using Deathy myself, but I regularly play against him as well. With the Coven I'd just blind him and then go to work pistol wraiths death chilling his blind arse. (Preferably from back arc)...
However, when using Khador, it is always good to know that if the Elf zings him with a disruptor bolt that he won't be firing spells at me.
The 1000 points is just a benchmark as to what to put on my "to buy" list. I'm still working on painting what I have now:
Coven ~ 75% done
2x Finished Nightwretches
1x Finished Deathrippers
2x 90% finished Deathrippers
1x Finished Defilers
1x Primed Slayer
1x Primed Mechanithralls
1x Primed Scarlock
2x Primed Pistol Wraiths
- So not likely to buy more until at least half of the above are completed.
Got to stay ahead of the curve! Though I can't deny that the Deathjack is very strong for its points, and very threatening. I'm torn between using him to round out my 350 to 500 or using a Harrower.
Deathy + Infernal Machine - Charge distance of 11. MAT+2 or, Ghostwalk + Infernal Machine, threat range of 8.
Harrower - All terrain, so he doesn't need Ghost Walk to threaten through terrain, - Charge of 10. MAT+2 from Infernal Machine makes for MAT7 on the scythe attack - with REACH.
The Harrower definitely wins in the HTH and shooting department, though Deathy definitely has many possiblilities as well - mostly a distraction to protect the ladies - and combines with the scarlock for a possible 5 spellcasting activations. Woo~
Both would be very annoying with stealth cast on them.
