    2man 1000pt each tourney Tyrand & Eldar

    Hello buggy bugertons.
    My friend and I are entering a tournament this weekend. Our fist time driving up to this store.
    They are running 2man teams 1k per player, no restrictions on which armies can team up.
    So we are running Eldar/Tyranid (I'm the Eldar player).
    We are both the 'winniest' players from our store but have no idea what kind of armies we'll be facing. My friend has a large Tyranid collection.

    Anyway, I'm looking for your thoughts on what would make a great list and strategies.
    I was thinking mech Eldar with Lots of melta (3 5man Fire Dragons in Wave Serpants) and a Night Spinner. I'd deal with the enemy armor while the bugs swarmed objectives and got into CC.

    Please feel free to post list ideas and thought for both Eldar and 'nids.

    Thank you,
    -John

    At the beginning of turn 1, I spray my opponent's army with the bacon flavored spray. Then I unleash my Boston Terrier Squiggoth who then devours their entire bacon flavored army! There is no defense against her cuteness! All are doomed!

    Eldar has a fast army. I'd recommend nids go shooty-fast to complement them.

    Tyranid Prime - Bonesword + Lash Whips, Deathspitters - 100
    3x Hive Guards - 150
    2x Hive Guards - 100
    Tervigon - Catalyst, Onslaught, Toxin Sacs - 200
    10x Termagants - 50
    2x Trygons - 400

    Total - 1000

    Either that or go with the Swarmlord:

    Swarmlord - 280
    1x Tyrant Guard w/Lashwhips - 65
    3x Hive Guards - 150
    3x Hive Guards - 150
    2x Hive Guards - 100
    Tervigon - Catalyst, Onslaught, Toxin Sacs - 200
    11x Termagants - 55

    Total - 1000
    Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6
    Blood Angels 12-4-2 Daemonhunters 20-8-3
    Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2

    Interesting. I was thinking he should do more mass swarm, but he is also wanting to go high Toughness monsters. He's thinking about a Tervigon 2 Lichtors and several zoanthropes.
    There's just something exciting about going to a 'new' store where we have no idea what level players there will be and what armies we will face.

    Here's what I think he's doing with his list. We are meeting up tonight to play-test

    HQ:
    Tervigon w/Adrenel glands and Toxin Sacs

    Elites:
    Lictor
    Lictor
    Venomthrope

    Troops:
    3-4x Warriors with Deathspitters
    20x Hormagaunts
    20x Hormagaunts
    20x Termagauts

    Heavy:
    x3 Biovore

    I don't see him being very helpful, biovores, will only be effective against infantry in the open. hes not going to help you at all bust tanks or any vehicle really,
    he can't shoot much at all. the best thing he's got going for your teamwork is,

    he can hold home base
    can take up alot of table space and get shot at

    this leaves you to do most of the killing on the enemies combined forces.

    if anything he should be fielding muscle pure and simple. and I think jy has the right idea with his list that contains the trygon pair.

    those 2 will be more of a distraction, they'll take more of beating + he can aid with shooting and still dig into an objective

    That list would work well, but depending on what your eldar friend is running I wouldnt take so many hive guards, let him do the anti tank and you just worry about pure muscle as Fenix said.

    P.S Didnt notice till just then, but 200th post whoop.
