i am new to tyranids and am aiming for a 1000 points,my army list is as follows so far:
HQ: Hive Tyrant with scything talons and rending claws, Adrenal glands ( I and WS), Toxin sacs, Winged. Psychic power :Warp Blast. =178
Elites : 3 warriors with ST and RC with EC and leaping. = 105
Troops : 16 spinegaunts = 80
:16 hormagaunts = 160
: 8 genestealers with EC =160
Heavy Support : Carnifex with venom cannon, barbed strangler, ES and EC and RC. = 188
Total = 871
Any ideas, advice and constructive critism are welcome.Also what would you spend the remaining 129 points on ???.
Thanks in advance
- I would drop Warp Blast on the Tyrant and add Warp Field instead. You want a CC tyrant in CC all game long so you should only get one Warp Blast shot if you play him right. That's too expensive for a single shot. Warp Field will give you a 2+/6+ save which will always help.
- Why take rending claws on the Tyrant? Are you planning on using him as a tank hunter? I prefer to bring two gunfexes for anti-tank and tool my Tyrant for pure troop killing power (2 x scything talons).
- I would spend the rest of your points on troops. You can never have too many Gaunts running around. At 1000 points every model really counts so more spinegaunts could help for shooting and as cannon fodder.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
Which army are you going to go up against? SM, add the I upgrade to those warriors. Hitting them first is nice. Keep them leaping.
My opinion on shooty fexes is BS, VC and ES, thats it, the extra points for the EC is nice, but he is gonna be a heavy weapons magnet AP2 weapons, so it will be rendered ineffective. Maybe throw in a couple more gaunts and split them up. If you do that get another squad of warriors for synapse. But keep the gaunts cheap spinegaunts = Xpts a model is perfect. EC on the genestealers.

I Play BlackTemplars but a mate of mine (War Boss Ghark) has the tiranid cod and I like reading them to better my strategy and I've always liked the Zoalanthropes with synapse and warp blast to provide you with a tank hunter and all the gaunts used as a meat Sheild until everything gets into combat and they are soon overwhelmed
I can be 2 things at once.
Gods gift to the world, and his biggest mistake
Drop warp blast for warp field, a better save is what you need. Replace the rending claws with another set of scything talons and trade in the adrenal glands for toxic miasma.HQ: Hive Tyrant with scything talons and rending claws, Adrenal glands ( I and WS), Toxin sacs, Winged. Psychic power :Warp Blast. =178I would divide these guys up a little to spread out your troops, at 1k, you can have smaller broods and do fine.Troops : 16 spinegaunts = 80
:16 hormagaunts = 160
With the remaining points a lictor and a ravener, that or more gaunts. Spinegaunts are best.
Legion Of Everblight: Abyslonia
Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
A thing that would be very useful would be a lictor or ravener. The lictors are very useful for taking out elites, while raveners are good for light armored infantry. I personally depend on them for tactics. You might want to consider adding one of the two (or both) to that list of yours.
That's me when I have too much coffee in the morning. Watch out!!!
If you can find the room for the I adrenal gland, that would help this unit a lot. It isn't that expensive, but it will take out a couple extra guys and save the warriors some pain.Elites : 3 warriors with ST and RC with EC and leaping. = 105These looks good.Troops : 16 spinegaunts = 80
:16 hormagaunts = 160
: 8 genestealers with EC =160I would suggest taking off either the EC or the RC. I've found that most carnis can do fine without two defensive upgrades, especially in a 1k game with a tyrant also. It'll save some points for the more expensive tyrant upgrades and the warrior ones.Heavy Support : Carnifex with venom cannon, barbed strangler, ES and EC and RC. = 188Personally, I think that the list is a little lacking in firepower. While it has several cc beasts, the carni is the only shooty unit. For 120 something points, you could fit in a unit of ranged warriors (3 with a VC, 2 DS, ES and EC) or two thorpes with warpblast. You could also go for more gaunts or a ravener, but personally I like to have more ranged firepower available than one carni.Any ideas, advice and constructive critism are welcome.Also what would you spend the remaining 129 points on ???.
