thats only 12 flesh borer shots...
cool army though.8Y
doh !!!! ;?
I fixed it thanks
Thank you for your reponse.I had 8pts left over that is all.why the ws upgrade?devourers heer are not twin linked
I am not sure what you mean here. I purchase two guns of same type so that makes them twin linked.I did not have the points for fleshbores plus their job was to tie up troops. To keep them off my shooting tyranidsthink about fleshborers hereYep some bolter rape going to happen but I had played it both ways and not seen huge difference maybe because I suck on rolling saves.these guys are toast with out extended carapace (no save vs. bolters!)I usually hide them until I need them or I go for flank but sometimes they died fast like you said.expect these guys to be gone 1st- 2nd turn.. the only thing they have going for them is the bio plasm
Ilike these guys.. but think about maybe dropping one and adding 3 zoans... thats an extra 3 strong shots!
I used zoanthropes before with mixed results. I usally need them for nothing else syanpse but I have 9 warriors and 2 hive tyrants so I think I am good there.
Thanks for the comments you had some good insight on my list.8Y
I like your list, and you are correct in that buying two devourers makes them twin-linked on your warriors.
I would consider swapping the gargoyles for more raveners. I would also recommend toxic miasma on the tyrants instead of WS ... similar cost, but more valuable for buddies in same combat (troops attacking or being attacked by = -1ws).
Nids & Guard
GMail = MVBrandt
Thank for the response Mvbrabdt . I have only two raveners for now. I am trying to get some more down the road probably another four but for today it is two (lol). I agree on toxic miasma it cost couple more points and I do not have enough to give it to both hive tryants without changng something.I would consider swapping the gargoyles for more raveners.

Anyway I am look forward to this weekend to see how this army does in three games.:party2:
This would be a true "devourer doom" army if it dakka fexes instead of warriors, i personally would prefer them over warriors. But they almost cost the exact same amount so its your choice. I'd also drop a guard on a tyrant and give him wings and warp field (you cant give it EC). Its hard to get wings though...

I am currently working on changing my hive tryant to flying one but it is not done yet. In past they would let me proxy the flying with piece paper on the base saying it was flying(lol). So I will stop doing that until I get my Hive tryant done(hehe). On the machine gun fex verus the warriors for some reason they get annoy they start call my army chesse, but when I run warriors that way nobody cares(go figure). I might still change out one to the machine gun fex.This would be a true "devourer doom" army if it dakka fexes instead of warriors, i personally would prefer them over warriors.
