    Need help for tourny, 500 & 1000pt Nids

    As the name suggests my 500 and 1000pt Nid lists needs some help :/

    HQ:
    Hive Tyrant -Wings, Scything Talons
    230

    Troops:
    20x Hormagaunts -Toxic Sacs
    160
    3x Tyranid Warriors - 2 with Deathspitters, 1 with Barbed Strangler
    110
    8x Genestealers
    112

    Elites:

    2x Hive Guards
    100

    2x Hive Guards
    100

    Heavy Support:

    Carnifex -2x Devourer with Brain leech Worms
    190

    That comes to 1002 points.


    As for my 500 point list im stumped. I would like to include as many of those models as possible, but I do know I will need some more models, such as a Tyranid prime or a tervigon. Anyway thanks in advance!

    At the the points level you are playing at I think you need to use a prime not a tyrant. Can you not use a warrior model?

    Fex's are ok but trygon are generally better. That said you could run a mini fex star byt associating the warrior prime with the carnifex. Give the prime a deathspitter and you have a nasty unit that shoots alot and can get cover saves. Stick regen on the prime and assign it wounds 1st.

    This saves you about 135 points. In an ideal world you would drop the warrior squad and take a tervigon (catalyst, ad and ts) and 10 gaunts, skimming the slight points shortfall from stealers or horm's. Failing that I would bolster your troops with more horms or stealers.

    500 pts is Terv again (this time as HQ) at 195, 2 hive guards (100), and a couple of stealer squads (205's worth). Inflitrate the stealers unless the board is small in which case outflanking can be fun (nowhere is safe if the board is 36 inches wide.....). You could drop AG and TS from the tervigon and get another stealer or 2. Probably worth doing that at this points level. If you dont have a tervigon model you can use I am ou of ideas, particlarly on the 500pt list

    Just my 2 peneth

    at the 1,000

    I'd say drop the tyrant or dakkafex, a prime with boneswords and a DS will complement your warriors much better and save you 135 which would be better used (I think) on more hormies or warriors other than that I think it looks fine,

    At 500 a Prime or tervi HQ is a must I'd say get 2 zoeys stick the prime with them and fill the rest of your points with gaunts
    (swarmy love)

    or fill it with whatever you like but a prime or tervie is a must
