I am a new tyranids player and i am basically working with more or less with what models i have (or close to have anyway)
Here it is.
-> Tyranid Prime - Deathspitter, Pair Of Boneswords = 95 pts.
-> Tervigon - Toxin Sacs, Catalyst = 185 pts.
-> Hive Guard Brood (3) = 150 pts.
-> Zoanthrope Brood (2) = 120 pts.
-> Termagant Brood 1 8 - 90 pts.
-> Tyranid Warrior Brood (4) - Deathspitter, Pair Of Boneswords, AG = 200 pts.
-> Tervigon (1) - Onslaught = 175 pts.
-> Genestealer Brood (7) = 98 pts.
-> Tyranid Shrike Brood (5) - Pair Of Boneswords, Scything Talons, AG = 250 pts.
-> Gargoyle Brood (17) - AG, Toxin Sacs = 136 pts.
I am planning to fly shrikes with a wall of gargoyles towards probably stationary long range shooting units. Terv (troop choice) will march with the terms and warriors in the middle and give onslaught to the warriors(+prime) so hopefully in the second turn will find themselves some trouble and the HQ tervigon will take their time moving along with the Zoans and Hive guard trying to pop some fast vehicles hopefully before they fully deploy. Genestealers will infiltrate depending the set up.
Please tell me what you think and any criticism is more than welcome, thank you.
How are you taking the Tervigon as a troops choice? If i have missed this please let me know i will surely do it.
According to the codex you can have a Tervigon as a troop choice for each Termagant Brood you have. (pg 91)
Other than that - what do you think?
The one thing I would suggest is finding the points to create 2 squads of 10 gaunts, instead of 1 squad of 18, and put the other Tervigon as a troop choice. That way you have 2 T6 MC's with 6 wounds each capable of taking objects and supporting their own squad of gaunts.
Oh that is awesome. Is anyone else thinking that you should be coupling this with Hive commander and outflanking one of these things in to play.
