Campaign starting this Thursday, with the above army sizes. You have to turn up with 3 lists and you can't include anything in the lower lists that isn't in the larger ones.
So here is my initial set of lists:
Hive Tyrant - 170
1 Tyrant Guard - 60
Zoanthrope - 60
3 Tyranid Warriors w/ Deathspitters - 105
5 Genestealers - 70
24 Termagants - 120
20 Hormagaunts - 120
Biovore - 45
1K list add:
Twin-Linked Devourers w/ Brainleech Worms for the Tyrant - [unposted]
1 Tyrant Guard - 60
2 Hive Guard - 100
1 Zoanthrope - 60
1 Genestealer - 14
1.5k list add:
2 Warriors w/ Deathspitters - 70
3 Genestealers - 42
1 Broodlord - 60
Add Adrenal Glands to Hormagaunts - [unposted]
1 Biovore - 45
1 Trygon Prime - 240
I'm hoping that this will give me some balance over the 3 levels, the Biovores are something I've not tried before, so I'm looking forward to seeing them perform.
Unfortunately I don't have time to carry out conversions for Tervigons, Harpies or Tyrannofexes at this point in time, but I do intend to look at all 3 in time.
1. Okay. In the first list remove the genestealers and the thrope. Just straight up get 2 hive guards and put the rest of the points into maybe an upgrade for your tyrant.
2. Looks good, dont bother adding in a thrope here either, all left over poitns go into the additional stealers or biovores.
3. In the third list add toxin sacs not adrenal glands to your hormagaunts. All other points pump into biovores.

Spot on advice, will certainly be taking it into consideration. Assuming I drop the Stealers and pick up a Hive Guard for list 1 (1 Zoan, 1 HG) what would you recommend the other 20 points goes on? Devourer w/ Brainleech Worms for the Tyrant?
I have to admit to being confused over the preference for Hive Guard over Zoanthropes. Marine killing blast attack and tank killing lance vs 2 S8 Bolter shots.
This may be a question for a separate thread, but I've always found that the Thropes outshine the Hive Guard in every game. Am I missing something?
hive guard are sturdier, ie harder to kill, and more reliable. They can't be instant deathed, which makes a HUGE difference. Also physcic defence can completely screw over zoanthropes. However, I personally run both, because zoanthropes are great against heavily armoured vehicles. Depends on how much anti-pysker is in your local meta-game.
Hive Fleet Barbarossa: 1700 points
Lizardmen: 1500 points
The worst game I've had with the Thropes was against another 'nid player. SitW played a big factor, stopped me getting my warp lance off which would have obliterated his broodlord and left the game at a draw. Not sure that the HG would have performed better as 2 of them had already been slaughtered by a Trygon Prime.
I feel a re-match challenge brewing!
