    Id remove adrenal glands from the termigants, keep them within range of the tervigon and they will benefit from its toxin and adrenal meaning you save more points. Unless of course your outflanking with your tervigon, but if that is the case i would probably run more termies on the board. maybe spore the zoanthropes too but with this list you might not want to seeing as how you dont have alot of synapse to move up with the rest of the army.

    You see the only problem with keeping the termies with my tervigon is that if he gets killed he is going to hurt most of those gaunts. I figure I have him walk up spawning gaunts to have more scoring units to hold objectives but the main idea of this army was to just wipe out the enemy. I was going to keep the Zoans and the Hive guard together that way the HG stay in synapse and they will be my main tank hunting units. The mawloc will pop up as many times as possible maybe hunting termies since it's AP 2. The units of gargoyles and Tyrant are going to run out in front of the army and CC everything. I'm running two units so they can assault multiple targets. Running Genestealers cause they rock, and the trygon prime was going to be guided with the termagaunts until it fleets away from them. And I'm thinking of outflanking the Tervigon. Suggestions about this strategy?

    ok so how about this, run two hive guard and two units of two zoanthropes, spore the zoanthropes and drop them turn two and focus fire the heaviest tank, they will take alot of the fire and probably die turn two but keep the hive guard back with the tervigon to protect him from the faster vehicles because he is very important due to the fact your running him with catalyst and onslaught

    foot those guys up the board instead with the termigants, have the hive tyrant and gargoyles assault together for the cc and dont outflank anything but the stealers. your mawloc and trygon should pop turn two unless REALLY unlucky. Just hit your opponent in waves which looks like your army is supposed to do.

    I think you could have good successes with this

    Now the only problem is modelling a mycetic spore to be able to use in a tournament

    well you need something revolting to look at, unclean and smells bad. How about an annoying little kid? . Jokes. For a better mycetic spore, i am sure that i saw someone posted a link for something that looked like one. Why not create a new thread named mycetic spore and the forum may come up with past threads that asked abotu making mycetic spores.
    thanks

    I'm actually stuck in the same boat as you right now, i gotta a tourney coming up and want to use spores but havent any at all. Iv been looking at large plastic fruits such as pears and potentially modelling those into spores iv even heard of people using beer/pop cans to make theres even coffee cups without handles and modelling them with green stuff.

    Mr. Potato-Head! Perfect size and you can pick one up for around 6.00USD. A little mod work, paint it up and you're good to go! Plus you can store his "angry eyes" for use as needed!

    Hasn't Navarro done a mycetic spore? I can't find it though.
