hi i would like an army of nids for around 1500 pts i havent got anything except a zoanthrote i want the battle force or the batlle for macragge but after that i don't know wat to buy thanks for the help
The first thing You need is a Tyranid Codex. Up to You whether to wait for the 4thEd Codex, or buy the 3rdEd Codex cheaply second-hand. The 3rdEd Codex is compatible with the 4thEd rules, and will be legal until superceded by the 4thEd Codex.
The ingredients for a pretty basic 1500pt list could look like this:
16 Leaping Gaunts
3 Ripper Swarms
Another box or two of Gaunts
Three Biovores with assortment of Spore mines
2-3 Guards (buy or convert from Warriors)
Brood of Gargoyles (converted from plastic Gaunts)
From these You could build a pretty basic 1500pt army list... Of course, by no means are these suggestions the only ones. If You want to exchange something for Zoans, Lictors, Raveners or other choices, feel free to do so. Though may I suggest that before assembling the models, You ask for feedback? It's rather easy to end up with useless upgrades and/or weapons when playing Tyranids.
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
You should try zoanthropes they can devestate other armies tanks and HQ. You just have to make sure that they don't get shot by lascannons and other strong weapons. A tactic I use a lot is to put a carnifex directly in front of the zoanthropes. The opponent will most likely fire at the carnifex, and leave your zoanthropes alone for the most part. (I know about shoot the big ones, but most opponents will fire at the carnifex first).
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!

uzi was too kind to you. this forum is for ppl to critique army lists that are made. we dont know wat your style fo play is, or wat u consider fun. why would we make up a list for you? especially with tyranids where basically mold your army to YOUR OWN tastes.
<insert witty remark here>
I agree -- Uzi was too nice. Build your own list, don't ask others to do it for you. Thread locked.
