Going to go for a different approach to 'nids this time - full on assault, with a little anti-tank. I'll be playing against Orks.

== HQ ==
Tyranid Prime (1) - Scything Talons, Scything Talons, AG = 90 pts.

== Elites ==
Hive Guard Brood (2) = 100 pts.
Ymgarl Genestealer Brood (7) = 161 pts.
Venomthrope (1) = 55 pts.

== Troops ==
Tyranid Warrior Brood (3) - Scything Talons, Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs = 105 pts.
Hormagaunt Brood (15) - Toxin Sacs = 120 pts.
Hormagaunt Brood (15) - Toxin Sacs = 120 pts.

== Total ==
751 pts.

OK, the general idea for this list is to try get as close to the enemy as fast as possible. My two Hormagaunt units will be the front line, giving cover the the Warrior + Prime and Venomthrope broods behind them. The Venomthrope will give a 5+ cover save to both my Hormagaunt units to prevent too many casualties from occurring. Here's a basic diagram of how my force is going to be set up:

My Ymgarls are going to hide in some area terrain somewhere near the enemy and them play mind tricks on him - I love doing that

They are quite effective (when I've used them) and are great for character/elite/annoying gun hunting.

Any feedback is valued,
