Hey peeps, am new to Warhammer in general, but I really like nids so I want them to be my first army. But I have some problems with finding a great list that I would love to play, there are 2 reasons for this problem: 1: metal models, i really hate thoose metal pieces, am lazy and like plastic and second: converting units that aren't for sale from GW.
For Nids there are a hell of a lot of models that are metal or need conversions, and me not being a handyman at all gives problems. therefore i want a good fun list to play with only plastic models beside the hive tyrant i want him flying around anyway.
A being a complete noob, I made the following 1500 points list:
Hive Tyrant: Regeneration, Wings, Hive Commander, Bonesword and Heavy Venom Cannon.
22 Genestealers, they are the core of the army, while the opponents wants to get rid off my big guys these guys are making there way into combat and slaughter everything, just equipped with rending claws and nothing else
2 Carnifex with: Crushing Claws, Heavy Venom Cannon, Regeneration
1 Trygon with Regeneration
1 Trygon Prime with Regeneration
if am correct this is 1498 points, i just know am gonna get bashed with this list therefore i need some help!
First I would drop all the regen from your monstrous creatures. Then I would get rid of the crushing claws on the carnifexes. If genestealers are not in reserve, switch hive commander with old adversary. Also split the stealers into 2 groups and maybe upgrade to broodlords. I would also recommend giving the tyrant 2 sets of scything talons or 2 sets of devourers. I know you don't like metal (i hate it too) but hive guard are a must. Definitely add a few of those bad boys in there. Oh and if the tyrant is flying ahead where is some synapse for the fexes?
Above poster said it all. I would consider getting some gaunts as well as stealers. Stealers die very easily over range.
Regen is just too expensive for how random it can be. A buddy of mine used to use it all the time and when I would fight him it almost never did enough. One successful regen really only means one more las cannon or missile shot. Most decent armies should have enough heavy weapons to put an extra wound or 2 out there. Plus getting rid of it saves up some of the points you need for hive guard.
theres this nice thread in the army list section called the tyranid army builder well a few of the great minds have gathered to answer and help most if not all of your questions as well as give out some fantastic advice
also for future reference army and army lists, belong in the army list section
I suggest you take a peek over there I'm sure the thread will be bumped over there shorty anyhoo
*moved to army list section*
