    Need Suggestions on my 1500 point list (first timer)

    Hi

    Ive been reading the various lists and ideas people have had on the forums and have taken on advice mainly given to you guys by Heirodule. I thought it time to see if my list is actually any good and if any tweaks need to be made to it.

    I have played in 2 local competition and come 3rd and 4th with my list and im fighting mainly GK and IG. Im very new to the game (been playing about 2 months) so please bear with me if i miss something.

    The List:

    Hive Tyrant x1

    2xTL Devourer w/BL
    Leech
    Paroxsym
    Hive Commander

    Tyrant Guard x1

    Hive Guard x2

    Hive Guard x2

    Zoanthropes x2
    Mycetic Spore

    5x Warriors
    Lash Whip & BS
    4x Deathspitter
    1x Strangleweb cannon

    8x Genestealers (vanilla)
    1x Broodlord

    16x Hormagants
    Toxin Sacs

    20x Termagants

    1x Tervigon (Troop)
    Catalyst
    Toxin Sacs
    Adrenal Glands

    Currently im walking the warriors up with the Hormagants offering some fire support and obviously giving them chance to get into assault once the Horm's have been dusted.

    Walking the Tyrant up with the termagants and the Tervigon as a second wave or i will move the tervigon onto an objective spawn termagaunts before moving with the main force as described previously.

    Hive Guard walking up behind this wave also taking out vehicles and multi wound chars where possible.

    Zoans deep strike behind armour (I took out a land raider on sunday doing this )

    Ive toyed with the idea of using Biovores or a Harpy, but i wanted to know what you think and how i can change the army/tactics to better suit what im up against.

    Thanks in advance.

    GK and IG.... Ouch. For the record, thats probably the toughest two armies in the game right about now, so its gonna be a baptism by fire for you.

    That being said I do like the list. Nothing in it screams bad, and it looks pretty well rounded on the whole. Congrats!

    The only thought I do have is with the warriors. Depending on the GK list you may find lash and bone is overkill. You could go with dualboneswords and adrenal glands, same points but hits slightly harder on the charge, and very handy for killing those pesky paladins. Also theres no such weapon as a strangleweb cannon! It seems you've got confused between the venom cannon, barbed strangler and the strangleweb (which is on guants only.) I think youll be wanting the barbed strangler in this case.

    If you could get a copy of the GK and IG list, then we could probably tailor it slightly against the two armies, but what youve got at the moment looks pretty good as an all round list. Congrats!

    Cheers for the reply and it is the barbed strangler reason i took the lash whip and BS is due to the GK getting to strike first at I6 with the ones carrying the glaive's, i wanted to get as many hits in as possible before he has a chance to ID me which GK have a habit of doing (even with SitW he still manages to cast his force weapons), i will try the dual boneswords and glands though see how it works out, and ill see if i can get a list from the GK and IG players.

    Whats your thoughts on escalating this to 2000 points, i was looking at another brood of hormaguants 20 strong, a Trygon prime and some biovores/harpy.

    again i appreciate the feedback

    For expansion Id look simply for 2 trygons (if you could scrimp the points to make one a prime then feel free) and some biovores. Should do nicely.
