Hey guys, I'm fairly new to 40K and I am not really sure where to start with the nids. It basically boils down to this.1. Are they worth playing? Synapse creatures seem like a huge downer.2. What is a good list at the 1000-2000 pt mark?Any help would be most appreciated.
With nids you basically have 2 ways to look at them, 1. you go swarm, with a few bigguns or 2. You go nidzilla, lots of bigguns with the smallest amount of runts. Now if you follow these guidelines you can make an effective army, i myself dont actually play nids, but have played against them numerous times and found all games to be very competitive and with a fresh codex, you can be assured they are worth playing.
If you have doubts, just proxy a few games and get a feel for the army, see what you like/dislike and what you actually need to be competitive. Also what armies your local gaming group play will have some effect on your overall list.
Hope this helps
with making a tyranid army list, you really need to look at symbiosm, as no tyranid is a gamewinner by itself. when combine with other tyranids, most units become very effective such as:
tyranid prime and hive gaurds,
hive tyrant and deepstriking,
tervigon and a couple of fexes
lictor and a couple of zoanthropes in a pod
genestealers and the swarmlord
these are just a few, and i wouldnt suggest basing you army around many of them, but would you post a list for us and give us an idea of what you like.
I thought about going swarm, but they die so frackin easy! I'll probably end up with a bigger army. I don't have a list made yet, and it'll probably take a while for me to post one. Thanks guys!
swarms are still very viable, especially with the addition of a tervigon. giving a throwaway unit FnP doent sound too bad now doesnt it?
Im playing a campaign with a swarmy gaunt army right now, so far its 3 massacre's and two wins!
