    2000 Rending Army

    Themed army close to the genestealer cult (since most of my troops are indeed genestealers) but this is more towards what I would expect tyranids to send at heavily armmed enemies. Sneaky sneaky is the tactics needed with this one I believe.

    1997 Points

    HQ:
    Broodlord 105
    Fleshhooks
    Acid Maw
    Ex. Carapace
    Toxin Sacs
    10 Genestealer Retinue 244
    2x Rending Claws
    Ex. Carapace
    Toxin Sacs
    Fleshhooks

    Elite:
    3 Lictors 240

    Troops:
    12 Genestealers 276
    2x Rending Claws
    Ex. Carapace
    Toxin Sacs

    12 Genestealers 276
    2x Rending Claws
    Ex. Carapace
    Toxin Sacs

    12 Genestealers 276
    2x Rending Claws
    Ex. Carapace
    Toxin Sacs

    5 Ripper Swarms 70
    Leaping

    Fast Attack:
    6 Flying Warriors 246
    Toxin Sacs
    Ex. Carapace
    Rending Claws
    Scything Talons
    Adrenal Glands (I)
    Adrenal Glands (WS)

    4 Ravaners: 160
    Rending Claws
    Scything Talons

    The Red Terror 104
    No rending... Just my favorite tyranid...

    Any friendly advice would be very welcome and just in case I do realize these guys will get shot to high *ahem* if they are out in the open. Luckily most of my games consist of a decent amount of terrain like trees. This will only be used in friendly games as I dont plan on playing in any tourny's any time soon... this is only my 2nd army... and I'm not even finished with my first :w00t:

    Lose the Acid Maw its not really worth the rerolls to wound on the first round your high strength makes it unlikely that all won't wound anyhow.

    Somethings wrong with your point calculations. Consider swapping the TS for Scything Talons you'll cause more wounds and more rending.

    Maybe give them devourers so if you plan to deepstrike them you can fire on your first turn with 24 str 4 shots rerolling to wound rather than just sitting around. It also gives them something to do if your advancing towards your enemy. Also split them up into three groups so that the enemy can't concentrate there firepower to wipe them out.

    2000 Points

    Broodlord 93
    Toxin Sacs
    Flesh Hooks
    Ex Carapace

    10 Genestealer Retinue 250
    Fleshhooks
    Ex Carapace
    Scything Talons

    3 Lictor 240

    12 Genestealers x24 = 288
    Scything Talons
    Ex Carapace

    12 Genestealers x24 = 288
    Scything Talons
    Ex Carapace

    12 Genestealers x24 = 288
    Scything Talons
    Ex Carapace

    4 Ripper Swarms x10 = 40

    6 Flying Warriors 5x27+24 = 159
    Scything Talons
    Rending Claws
    5x Toxin Sacs

    5 Ravaners x 50 = 250
    Rending Claws + Scything Talons
    Devourers

    The Red Terror 104


    Also split them up into three groups so that the enemy can't concentrate there firepower to wipe them out.
    I dont think I can being that I've already filled my 3 Fast Attack choices...
