Welcome to Librarium Online!
i want to make a good foundation for a soon to be large nid army but i can decide what to take i was thinking of......
Broodlord with a retinue of 11 each armed with rendering claws and sything talyons. 290
Worrior brood all with sything talyons 1 with barbed strangler 3 with rendering claws. 100
Three Lictors. 240
16 gaunts with spinefists. 80
16 gaunts with devourers. 112
11 genestealers 176
plz cretique my list an let mr know how to make it more effective...
I think you need to look over your codex..... 100 points for 3 warriors sounds a bit low...not to mention you will NEED to give them some upgrades....same goes for your genestealers and your broodlord with his retinue.
Extended carapace the stealers before scytals. And spinegaunts are easily the best, if you have the models.

ot four worrior acutally if u look at it
The numbers are right....its just that everything on your list will be dead by your opponents second round of shooting.......possibly even his first, if the dice gods favor him.
Not putting extended carapace on your warriors and genestealers is inviting a big L to your win/loss record.
Also DevGaunts are very impractical....if you want to wound on 6's you might as well scrap the idea of a Tyrannid army and think about Orc's......i hear the Gretchens are cheap and have the same effect as devgaunts.
reduce retinue to 5 or 6. Infiltrating 12 models is hard & you may not be able to infiltrate & the whole unit will only move 6'Originally Posted by johnnyhorswellShooty warriors are the worst 'nid shooty unit. look at a 'fex with 2 devourers or make them a leaping CC unit.Originally Posted by johnnyhorswellThese are excellent at taking out light armour. Lictors are very fragile in CC. Take only 1.Originally Posted by johnnyhorswellThis looks good. I would change the gaunts with devourers to hormagaunts. You want the extra speed. I find 8 genestealers with EC to be good brood.Originally Posted by johnnyhorswell
Think about taking a Zoanthrope or 2. This would give you some extra synapse and hard hitting range attacks.
