I am relatively new to Warhammer 40,000 , but I have already gained a decent amount of experience and knowledge of the game. A year ago I made my first Tyranid army list, and overtime until the present day it has evolved so many times and in so many diffrent ways that I can't track the progress of its evolution to 2000 points. Finnaly it has resulted into this list. I'll explain my Tactica after the list is listed.
Hive Tyrant: BS,Lashwhip with bonesword as weapons, Adrenal Glands(ws), Toxin Sacs, warp blast, toxic miasma, extended carapace, 2 tyrant guard.
Tyranid warriors: 3 broods of 3 tyranid warriors. One with venom cannon, scything talons, enhanced senses, adrenal glands(ws), toxin sacs, extended carapace, bioplasma. 2 With scything talons, rending claws, adrenal glands(ws), toxin sacs, extended carapace, bioplasma.
2 Broods of 6 Genestealers: with extended carapace.
24 termaguants: flesh borer, without number.
24 Hormagaunts: Adrenal glands(I)
Elite Carnifex: 2x scything talons, adrenal glands(WS), flesh hooks, implant attack.
Heavy Support Ranged Carnifex: VC+BS, enhanced senses, Reienforced Chitin
3 Biovores: Bio-acid, toxin or frag depending on army.
Heavy Support carnifex: Scything talons+Crushing claws, adrenal glands, extended carapace, rienforced Chitin, Spine Banks,
THis just from the top of my head so I'll update just in case I missed something or did something incorrectly:yes: . The Tactica for My Army is that the tyranid warriors will be divided, one will go to the closecombat group with the ELite Carnifex, genestealers, and hormagaunts, another with the biovores to keep them in check, and another with the termagaunts and ranged carnifex. The Hive Tyrant will be central keeping evrything under control. The other Heavy support carnifex will try to sneak in for some Tanks(good luck with that). The ranged carnifex, Ranged tyranid warrior, hive Tyrants, and biovores jobs are to support the close comat unit and keep the tanks and other dangerous ranged weaponry in check. Hopefully taking out a few tanks in the process. The close combat unit will then form a pincer to swallow the enemy units while moving through cover, the tyranid warriors will hopefully keep them in check with their synapse. When they go into close combat. I will use my Hive Tyrant's cataclyst(Bonesword) to assist them, using my Tyrant guard as the model to bring it out. So then I will slowly but surely shoot and slice the enemy with no Mercy. The elite carnifexes role is to destroy any dreadnoght, Demon, Avatar(My Dad's getting Avatar so that why I got this carnifex) and any other big creature/machine that looks dangerous. Any Helpful Suggestions for both my army And Tactics will be welcomed:yes: .
This is in the completely wrong section of the forum. It should be under 40k Armies/Tyranids/Army Lists.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
I was about to suggest the same thing, but I felt that it would be out of place to comment on that sole purpose. -
Being the fluff section, if you have a story to discuss or would like some help on building up some fluff on your army, this is the right place, but if you've mostly come for tactics and armylists, you might want to move it to the specific army forum.
Since your in the fluff forum I'll give you a quick bit of fluff advice. Are you particularly attached to that name for your hive fleet? because it is quite a bit more fun to name it after mythological monsters.
Kraken, Leviathon, Behemoth
Then theres mine (Nosferatu)
Someone on LO made Jormungand (Norse sea serpent)
Look through ancient myths and legends and find a monster you quite like and name your hive fleet after it. Hive Fleet Cerebus maybe? Hive Fleet Medusa? Hive Fleet Fenris? Hive Fleet Niddhog?
You get the idea.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Sorry about this mistake I'll just copy and post it somewhere else(My First time so.
It's alright no worries ^^ I also made the same error when I first joined.
But yes if you're planning on writting Nids Fluff - you might have a hard time due to the fact that they can't exactly speak. So usually what Tyranid Fluff-writers do is base it off the enemy's perspective. Usually Imperial Guards or Space Marines, or if you're feeling creative you can even go as far as doing it from a Tau point of view.
As for names, Hive Fleets tend to be named after mythological monsters... you might have to do a bit of research though since most of the 'big' monsters have already been taken either by official stories or by other fluff-writers.
You could even make up names like... 'Hive Fleet Gantrithor' or... 'Hive Fleet Dagron' - I dunno ^^ Food for thought.
I 'am thinking of actually naming it Hive Fleet Scorpio, but Hive Fleet Legion seems better, I' am nt sure which one to pick?
Scorpio is awesome - but Legion makes it sound too disciplined... why not something like 'Hive Fleet Garm' or 'Hive Fleet Alacran' 'Hive Fleet Devourer' maybe 'Hive Fleet Tarasque' or... hmm... 'Hive Fleet Gangrel' ?
Hive Fleet Colossus? I'm sure there are plenty of "big" mythological creatures ripe for being a fleet.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Hive Fleet Legion is perfect
"We are legion" That represents the buggies so much-words torn from the mind of a maddened astropath as the hive approaches....thats an awesome name.
