Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I am thinking of branching out from my Imperial Guard and like the look of the new Tyranid army list. I want to start small first and have put together a 1000 point list to play against my friends, Orks, Chaos Marines and Space Marines. What do people think about the following list?
HQ. 110 points
Tyranid Prime, bone swords, scything talons, adrenal gland, regeneration.
13 Genestealers, brood lord, scything talons 256 points
24 Hormagaunts, toxin sacs. 192 Points.
4 Tyranid Warriors, bone swords, scything talons, adrenal glands. 180 Points
2 Zoanthropes. 120 Points
Deathleaper . 140 Points.
personally I would drop the deathleaper, just because I think it is too elite for a 1000 points army. and it is just another killpoint for your opponent.
it also depends on against wich army you are playing.
instead of the deathleaper I would take another zoantrhope and another warrior, so these squads are a little bit harder to kill.
your list looks good apart from the Genestealers which are to expensive
here is a quick list that i have won battles with versus chaos and space marines
Prime- Rending claws, regeneration, Talons
5 Warriors- Mycetic spore
3 warriors- Talons, rending claws
3 warriors- talons, rending claws
The tyranid prime goes in the spore with the 5 warriors and lands near the enemy to distract them and create mayhem. the trygon is to burrow and reappear near enemies to also destroy valuable units/vehicles and the two groups of warriors each go with a squad of termagaunts to make sure they are in range and flush the opposition away.
i am meant to put soething clever and cool in this box, But do you know what i really cant think of anything at all. LOL <-----sums me up very well
