    Tyranids 2000pts tournament

    Recently made up this new army list. A CC army using gaunts as a meat shield (spinegaunts) or to rush in and tie up enemy squads (hormagaunts). Main killing force will be the genestealers (der), tankbusters are the fex, zoans and any rending. Has good synapse with the warriors being able to keep up with faster squads if needed. But chances are I'm over looking some weakness! Help would be much appreciated.

    I Really like your list, A Lot of genestealers and huge units of gaunts. nice...

    Winged warriors seem a little too fragile to me. their lack of armor makes them rather easy to kill if someone manages to evade the two huge Hormagaunt waves heading toward their front lines (and the genestealers of course).
    then again looking at your list another time i realized that you could use the fast synapse support. keep them safe in cover untill the enemy is tied up =P.
    Hive fleet Phantom- 6000 and growing still....

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatly I'm all too familar with how weak the flying warriors are, they normal stick to cover giving synapse til they have the chance to take out small weaker units (like snipers etc). Orginally I had an extra slightly bare shooting hive tyrant and another 3 flying warriors but decided to remove them for the hormagaunts (replacing 20 spine gaunts with them) im hoping it will pay off and they'll tie up the enemy while more bigger things get in positon (*cough* genestealers *cough* love em ).
    Smite the enemy, thank the aillies!
