I'll be attending my first mega battle sometime soon and the requirements are a 500 point flash army.
I'm super noob to this and was curious if anyone would be able to enlighten me as to what a decent Nid setup would be for my first mega-battle.
I have 16 Hormas, 12 genestealers, and 3 warriors as of now. I can pick up a few models (not too many) this week.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated
well, genestealers cost a lot of points and are not good for small games. They take up about half the points already, and I'm not sure if you have space for any more models within the point limit.
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
I would suggest the following:
ScyT + RenC
2x broods of Leaping Gaunts with ScyTal, possibly an extra Biomorph. I'd try to make the Gaunt broods at least 14 strong, 1 Hive Node per brood.
If any extra points remain... Hmmm. Either add a Warrior, increase Gaunt brood sizes, or add a small brood of 'Stealers for additional CC power.
I would suggest in having RenCs in one form or another... You will need them to deal with possible vehicles and heavy infantry.
Since You're unlikely to have enough RenCs to arm Your Warriors with, an alternative would be:
ScyT + DSpitter, 1 in brood ScyT + VCannon
These You can get from a single Warrior box, and the weapons should be able to deal with most light vehicles at range. If You wish, You can spend points on AdrG WS + I to make these nastier in CC.
