The thing is it is very expensive but hear me out 5 str 8 ap 2 weapons and 12 str x ap5 shots. That means take down the vehicle and then since thhe venom itself is a different unit it can shoot at the people inside;) is it worth it?

It's also highly immobile. The Lance will only snapshot once you moved a single inch, while the blasters only got a threat-area of 24'' while staying in their venom. A good opponent won't keep his vehicles near that unit until it's destroyed.

4 Trueborn with 4 Blasters in a Venom.

The thing is this is decently affordable and has good synergy within itself, but hear me out, 4 str 8 ap 2 weapons and 12 str x ap5 shots. That means take down the vehicle and then since the venom itself is a different unit it can shoot at the people inside

the problem is what does the dark lance bring to the table for them??? T1 you want to get them in close to use the 60 pts spent on blasters, so that 25 pts spent on the dark lance is snapshotting instead of shooting at full BS. Once you get into range of the blasters, that darklance still doesnt help as you will run out of targets within 18" fast, and then your stuck snapshotting it again.

Your best bet is just running either 4 blasterborn or 3 lanceborn (2 w/ lances ofc) they both play very differently, but both bring strong supplimental AT to the field for our army.

This.

It's rarely a good idea to mix assault weapons with heavy weapons, and this build practically defines the reasons.

- If you want to fire the dark lance, then you can't move and the blasters will likely be out of range.
- If you want to fire the blasters, then you'll likely have to move (trust me - no enemy vehicles are coming within 18" of that thing, and it lacks the survivability for area-denial), in which case the dark lance is snap-shotting. So, you might as well not even have it, for all that it will bring.
- If your enemy moves a tank within 18" of it and allows you to fire the blasters and dark lances in your turn, then you're playing an idiot and might as well have The Decapitator lead your next army.

I agree with all of the above. just would add that with 36" rang the Dark Lance can be stationary in a small squad of Trueborn and still be effective without transport. Depends how and who you play though.
