    1500pts Tyranids semi competitive

    Ive got access to these models currently

    Winged Hive Tyrant
    Broodlord
    6 Wsrriors
    24 Genestealers
    40 spinegaunts
    10 hormagaunts
    4 Carnifexes
    2 zoanthropes

    Im trying to get some more termaguants, hormaguants, genestealers and a lictor


    This is the list I thought of doing

    Hq

    Hive Tyrant 196
    enhanced senses
    toxin sacs
    Warp field
    Winged
    2x twin linked fevourers

    I have considered dropping this guy but I believe he will come in useful if I use him appropriately. I may change him to a cc tyrant but im not sure


    Elite

    6 Warriors 191
    Toxin sacs
    6x scything talons
    5x deathspitters
    1x barbed strangler
    A squad of 3 was fairly effective when i used them primarily due to how multiple blasts are resolved, but I decided to add more survivavbility and shooting power

    Elite
    Carnifex 113
    scything talons
    barbed strangler

    Elite
    Carnifex 113
    scything talons
    barbed strangler

    Troop
    12 Genestealers 240
    scuttlers
    Flesh hooks

    Troop
    12 Genestealers 240
    Scuttlers
    Flesh hooks

    I chose flesh hooks due to flexibility. Feeder tendrils are theorectically far better but if you have to deal with models in terrain your pretty screwed. Stealers for me are hit hard enough so they dont hit back models.

    Troop
    8 spinegaunts 64
    w/o numkber

    Troop
    20 spinegaunts

    Heavy support
    Carnifex 113
    Barbed strangler
    scything talons

    Heavy support
    Carnifex 128
    Barbed strangler
    scything talons
    reinforced chitin

    1498 pts

    Any ideas to make the list better you have would be greatly appreciated

    To be honest, I like it. Boomfexes are fast becoming my favourite form of Elitefex (only because everyone at my club has learnt how devastating my dakkafex is and thus target him first) and you've got no short supply of them. On a personal note, I love Tyrants in CC as his high number of armour-nullifying attacks is too good to pass up. Back when ballistic skill meant something to 'nids, I would have always made it shooty, but now I'm digressing.

    I'd split the warriors up for two reasons. First, you can target more units, and second, you can get a bigger synapse bubble this way. If you want to give another one a barbed strangler, then you could take some of that 20-gaunt brood out.

    In fact, look at that spinegaunt brood as your points reserve. If you want to add something to the other squads you have, then feel free to reduce the number there. You might even want to consider shrinking it to another 8-gaunt brood without number too.
    If Google were a woman...I would so marry her.

    Ive decided to modify my list heavily due to experiences with it and with some of your comments in mind

    Hq

    Hive Tyrant 216
    Adrenal glands ws
    Flesh hooks
    enhanced senses
    toxin sacs
    Warp field
    Winged
    2x twin linked devourers
    Implant attack

    Can still pump out 4 attacks on the charge so ive added implant attack to make use of it where neccessary

    Hq

    Broodlord 86
    Toxin sacs
    Feeder tendrils
    Flesh Hooks

    7 Genestealers 147
    Flesh hooks
    Extended Carapace

    Ive missed this unit at times it adds synapse and the blord is very powerful considering points cost

    Elite
    4 Warriors 144
    Toxin sacs
    1x scything talons
    1x rending claws
    1x lash whip
    3x deathspitters
    1x barbed strangler
    1x scything talon

    Ive reduced it to 4 models to bring down cost as im adding extended carapace, as a drop pod full of space marines rapid fired them to death last game.

    Ive also made it a complex unit whether thats effective or not remains to be seen.

    Elite
    Carnifex 114
    scything talons
    barbed strangler
    flesh hooks

    Elite
    Carnifex 113
    scything talons
    barbed strangler

    Troop
    8 Genestealers 160
    scuttlers
    Flesh hooks

    Troop
    8 Genestealers 160
    Scuttlers
    Flesh hooks

    Reduced models to reduce points

    Troop
    8 spinegaunts 64
    w/o numkber

    removed large spinegaunt squad completely as it did nothing

    Heavy support
    Carnifex 148
    enhanced senses
    Barbed strangler
    Venom cannon


    Heavy support
    Carnifex 148
    enhanced senses
    Barbed strangler
    Venom cannon

    1500 pts

    It came out to 1512 so I had to remove another stealer from blord squad so then I had 9 points left over so I added Adrenal glands ws and Flesh hooks to tyrant plus flesh hooks to 1 elite fex

    I have also aquired a lot more stealers (kind of accidently only wanted 24 more but an old bid on a further 19 succeded and im still winning on another 12)
