    New Codex 1500 point Army

    So here is what I am going to be trying for my first time out. Originally I was a shoot nids sort of guy but I am trying to adapt to the new nid environment. I think I will try a shooty list eventually but for right now I think this is what I will try to play with during 1500 point games. I need to play test the trygon which might get bumped down to a regular Try and that will give me plenty of points to get EC for the tyrant. Questions or comments are welcome.

    In my experience you only need to upgrade to a trygon prime if you need the extra Synapse, but it doesn't seem an issue in your list. I'd cut that, and give your Flyrant some firepower. TL-BL Devourers are great on him, and it's probably what I'd get.
    Also, you are low on kill points, so you can risk splitting up the Hive Guard if you want to. The more units you have, the more flexible your army is. It means more kill points for the enemy, however, so if your playgroup gravitates towards annihilation you may want to avoid that.
    I've had no luck with rending claws on Warriors, so I'd either try to get boneswords for them. That could be an alternative to the Devourers.

    Thanks for the Comments Lemt. I believe you are correct and will take your advice bumping down the trygon prime to a regular. Points saved from that I think I will toss to my tyrant for EC and or Devs possibly regen for one of the big nasties. Currently getting my Mawloc built w/ magnets and all the fixings and waiting for my other trygon to come in that I ordered. I'd like to have this army play tested by the end of the month.

    Yeah no 2+ flying Tyrants this time. Makes me sad. But Warriors should be equiped with Boneswords at all times. finally we can skip all this roll a 6 power weapon stuff and just give our bugs power weapons. Lots of high WS high St attacks (AG if you want to strike first and wound on 3s against MEQ's) with power weapons is awesome. Bring me those terminators heads! Better yet, just eat them.
    I dream of a day when a chicken can cross the road without anyone questioning its intentions.
