Welcome to Librarium Online!
First off.. this is what I currently own, figure wise.
Tyranid battle Box
Three Tyranid warriors (for a total of 6)
Endless swarm (Buying this was impulsive.. the idea of putting all these gaunts together makes me sad)
Termagaunts and spore mines from the Battle for Macragge set
This is the basic of my list, for my 1000 point army. If you guys could throw out suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. My main opponent with be Ultramarines. His list includes a venerable dreadnaught and a predator annihalator.
Three tyranid warriors (rending claws x2, scything talons x3, venom cannon x1)
Zoanthropes x2 (warp blast and synapse)
Carnifex (venom cannon, barbed strangler, extended carapace, and the +1 wound)
The idea behind the army is for the Carnifex to lay down fire on any vehicles as the army advances. The warriors and zoanthropes provide Synapse for the swarm as it advances.
Well, you will be wanting to put out all six of those warriors (in two broods) to give out anough synapse coverage for all those gaunts (or grab some hive tyranty goodness), even with the zoanthropes I dont think you have enough.
Also, for the warrior brood you have described, dropping the Venom Cannon for a set of rending claws and giving the brood leaping or wings to get them in close a bit faster would probably be better. Or giving the other two warriors ranged weapons as well. A brood should have a clearly defined role.
The name refers to facial hair, not playing style.Originally Posted by A news vendor's stand, London, June 1940
