so I have been dragged into a 2k 50 person tourney at the end of the month. Now normally my eldar would be getting some use but I have decided that this is a good excuse to paint up my bugs. This tourney has a fair few rules on army comp, sportsmanship etc and the standard missions are what will be used. So with that in mind here is my proposed army list.
Hive tyrant w/hive commander
Tervigon w/scythes, cluster spines, sacs, glands, catalyst
5 Warriors w/deathspitters
2 x 18 Hormagaunts w/sacs, glands
11 Genestealers w/broodlord
I think this will go ok against most lists, it will be all about mutual support and disruption. It also gives me alot more options for reserving, deep strike, outflank etc. Anyways thanks in advance and I really appreciate any advice ideas.
Need more anti tank. At 2k you can expect a landraider and you will not cope well, so add at a minimum of 6 hive guards, you need those thropes in a pod and I would make that tyrant a flyrant by giving him scything talons and wings, how you make up those points is up to you.
Cheers I realise that it is limited in it's shooting, but hive guard are going to do very little against an AV14 tank. Glance at best means not much. The Zoans are going to be hiding behind the tervigon until in range of all those high AV targets. Apart from that I will be relying on what bugs do best shredding thinkgs in CC.
The hive guards work their magic on transports (Which almost every army will have) Plus they can be used to pop those pesky walkers I speak form experience here your zones wont work their magic if they footslog, and if they do any experienced player will RUSH them. You need to put them in a spore so it can remove the tank in the first few turns of shooting, or your big bugs will get destroyed.
