Hey dudes, anyone ran theses guys before and had success, they seam expensive for what they do but i wana give it a try, they look heaps of fun since you dont really see them much.

Was thinking a spaceship planetfall and keep the crisis with shao on board. And another formation to unload and shoot.


Anyway hit me with list ideas and a few pointers

Thanks

I've rn my manta a half dozen times and it's performance is very situational. It can perform quite well or quite poor depending what you are facing. Very vulnerale to TK hits taking it down before it activates due to lack of shields. I tend to use it rather aggressively though.

I have a fear of facing them, which is likely disproportionate, but my opponent uses them pretty well and they are so big and menacing looking. There's the difficult decision of whether or not you try and take them out (wasting a lot of firepower due to deflector shield and toughness), or knock out the recon and other dangerous units. I often favour ignoring them but they are free to cause havoc then.

Some games ( I seem to have mainly been using orks against them so far):
