    Rate my tyranid infestation

    Ack, can't change thread title... should be:

    My idea for squads is:

    2 groups of 8 genestealers as the second wave, flesh hook climbing over hard cover to dine on marrow
    hive tyrant flying in to support the carnage
    1 zoanthrope with 8 termagaunts and 8 devourergaunts flanking fire
    1 sniperfex in the back hitting from long range

    Winged

    Scything Talons
    Rending Claws
    Synapse Creature


    ~Troops~

    16 Hormagaunts
    Adrenal Glands (I)

    8 Termagaunts
    Fleshborer


    8 Devourgaunts
    Devourer
    Toxin Sacs

    16 Genestealers

    Welcome!

    Warrior minimum squad size is 3. I'd advise against mixing melee/ranged warrior biomorphs. It costs way too much. Your warrior loadout doesn't match your list description so maybe that's just a mistake from copying it over from the other forum?

    For a 1250 list you shouldn't do too bad. The gaunt unit sizes seem a bit small for me, but that's personal preference. Have you given any thought to spinegaunts? You can field way more gaunts with twin-linked fire. Doesn't have the pure hitting power of the other weapon types but it more than makes up for it with shear volume. Plus it's the most disposable gaunt we have.

    Thanks TamCoan, I didn't know about the warriors, I will make changes.

    I will make them all CC then I think, and add more gaunts.

    As for spinegaunts... they're OK, but I still prefer the range on the termagaunts.

    Should I make the Zoanthrope their synapse ?

    looks like a good list. The gaunts squads really do need to be larger at say 12 each squad if you can. otherwise it looks good a second fex would be a nice addition if you can and maybe lose the scuttlers on stealers but otherwise looks to be a competitve and solid list

    Thank you grimaldus !

    - I've heard that scuttlers are great... but you don't think so ? I guess if I want to bring my genestealers in after my gaunts, I guess that's not a good idea after all ?

    - I can grow my gaunts, no problem... I think I will do that. Thanks !

    - I've been told by the group I play with that they are going to 1500 points, so I think a second 'fex might be a possibility... we'll see how much I have left after I add more gaunts.
