    Chaos dealing with a 'nid hyve fleet?

    Maybe its just me, but or some reason I've not heard anything about any major chaos vs nids interaction. Has there been, or could there be a hive fleet that would come close to the eye of terror?

    If I remember correctly...


    ...........O.............
    ........................TT
    .........(O)........TT
    .......................TT

    o=Eye of Terror
    (O)=galactic core
    T= Area of the galaxy where tyranids come in from.

    Could it be simple galactic geography that keeps them appart?

    I've seen a man roll 26 ones in a single handfull of dice, and Tycho die 49 consecutive times in 60 games. I've had a wolf lord never die (106 games) and a war walker kill a Force Commander AFTER its gotten both weapons destroyed. I've lived a full gaming life.

    I heard that the Hive mind feared Chaos and since Chaos Deamons just dissapate they cant get ate so the nids cant eat them. But that is hearsay from another Fourm.

    It is just simple geography (for a decent galaxy map, check out darkmillennia.net), as the first 2 Hive Fleets have come from the galactic East and the EoT is to the galactic West. Although Leviathan has come up fairly close to the Maelstrom, there haven't been any reported clashes, but that's where they'd be if there were any.

    The best actual map is in the WH40k rulebook. The darkmillenia one is more detailed i'll admit but its also been tilted slightly so that everything isn't exactly where it should be as we normally see it in the 40k universe. The Eye is actually more NW, with the first two hive fleets coming in almost directly from the east. Leviathan is coming up underneath the galaxy. So if you look at the darkmillenia map its technically coming into the galaxy from behind the map. Same goes with the rulebook map, though I know both maps show leviathan as coming in from the south, its technically not.

    It's more likely the other way around. Just because the Tyranids can't physically consume the essence of a Daemon, doesn't mean the hive mind (a vast "static field" which consumes so much of the ambient "energy" in the warp as to drown out the Astronomician) can't do so.

    Unfortunately, we don't have any reliable information aside from a few instances of chaos-posessed Genestealer vanguard broods, and one occasion where an Iron Warriors strike force infected a solitary (aka vulnerable and cut off from the hive fleet) Tyranid hive ship with the Obliterator Technovirus.

    Yet it's happened in the GW fluff on at least one occasion (I think it was the book "Blood Claw", one of the Space Wolf series about Ragnar). But again, it was only possible because the particular group of tyranids was completely isolated from the Hive Mind and left to their own devices for a long while.

    Happened in Soul Drinker too. Nurgle-possessed stealers, more bloated and a lot harder to kill than standard stealers, but slower.

    Your right Poptartsninja in "Storm of Iron" the Iron warriors use a Tyranid ship that has been infected with the Obliterartors Technovirus.
    Yes people i know that my spelling and punctuation is awful but I am product of British teaching pollicies so what can I do about it?

    The point about the Hive Mind eating Demons is an interesting one. Although its probably possible, individual demons would probably keep out of it's way, treating it as simply another really big demon (they eat each other) and a major demonic incursion would have a significant amount of attention from it's patron god, who would probably fight the Hive Mind in some way. Personally I'd guess that hte chaos god would win, but that's just me.

    Anyway Chaos God v Hive Mind in the Warp, could be a very interesting fight.
