    You'll probablt need more synapse. you only have 3 squads. You're warriors are also illeagal. you can only have either a VC OR BS. i'd suggest gunfex's (BS and VC) and also equiping one of the tyrants iwth wings and giving it 2X TL Devouers. a mobile shooty death thingy is very handy.

    That looks like a good list. I'd love to try it out. The only thing I would change is swap the 2 Tyrants weapons with the Carnifexes. A Tyrant armed with 2X TW devourers is lethal. ON average your 2 Tyrants shoul kill 6.2 space marines a turn if in range. Thats 100 points of your enemies gone per turn.:shifty:

    IMO I like my Carnifexes to have venom cannons rather than the tyrants because of their strength anyway. Plus, you save points this way.:tongue:

    It's a dangerous list. There are a couple of problems. Most of them have already been mentioned. IMO you definately need more synapse coverage. And the warriors are illegal, (find a couple more points and split them into two units, maybe).
    Now, here's the kicker, this list would probably do really well the first couple of times out, but, most armies can outshoot 'Nids and once your opponents figure it out, they'll mulch ya.
    BUT, it would be fun to use. Who expects a 'Nid shooty army.
