Right, straight to the point, I'd like to know if this list is any use. This is a list of 500 points, with no 3+ wound or +2 save creatures nor Large/Ordnance blasts, GW nights doesnt allow them.
3 Warriors, 1 Toxin sac, 1 Enhanced Senses BS, 3 Scything Talons (Ya Rly!), 2 Spinefists (Not enough points ) 1 Venom Cannon.
3 Warriors, 3 Scything Talons, 3 Rending Claws, 3 Leaping.
My main idea is that the spine gaunts shield the warriors and hormagaunts, while they are shooting and advancing to them, I know it's not much of a tactic, but hey, I'm a beginner. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Definitely consider some Genestealers with extended carapace. Even one little brood can make a big difference against marines in a small point game, but the downside is genestealers are much more expensive than hormagaunts.
I'm also pretty sure all the warriors in your broods need the same biomorphs (not weapons, thank god), but I don't have my codex with me so I'm not totally certain. If you do drop some hormagaunts for Genestealers, try to get some deathspitters on those other two shooty warriors.
Vorsu...Welcome to the boards nice army list for 500 pts, basically i would try to avoid small games, battle patrol games as they are pretty much very unfair against our nids, they take away all the cool reasons as to why you chose to go nids (Big nasty gribbly monsters and huge swarms) And also make the army list very vulnerable to lack of synapse ie no Tyrants or brood lord because of 3+ wounds and no zoanthropes with synapse 2+ save.
I would try to take some stealers in your army due to the fact that if your warriors get killed off, your army will halt without no synapse.

You must take the same biomorphs for all warriors in the same brood. You can have different weapons.
The shooty HQ brood is nice. I think that you will want weapons with more range than the spinefists on the other two. Devourers or deathspitters are usually the ones of choice.
Definitely think about removing some of the gaunts and putting in either genestealers or raveners. You do not have enough synapse for that many gaunts. I would go with no more than three gaunt broods if you have two warrior broods. In fact, I would probably have two gaunt broods. (Spinegaunts or hormagaunts.)
You might want EC on the leaping warriors too, because they will be a high priority target for someone to rapid fire with bolters.

Oh man :w00t: ! I wish someone would have a 500 point mini-tourney in my town. This is exactly what I would run:
Broodlord w/EC = 80
9 Stealers w/EC, scuttlers = 207
9 Stealers w/EC, scuttlers = 207
For a grand total of 494
I'm not sure how long you would last, but it would be a good shot to get 500 points in close quickly. Now I'm curious. I might have to suggest a 500 pointer in my neck of the woods.
Well it seems that I have to make a new list, quickly, I think I'm pretty much in trouble then. I can't use Genestealers yet, because I only have 6 (yes, shame on me). And since this is my first gaming night, I won't be expecting much, thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.
Oh well, 3 losses, Didn't have any expectations with those players, Number 1 in the league, the unbeaten player and a good player. With the good player (Orks) I was the best againts him, got 1 and half squads dead (yay me!). Againts the ''Unbeaten'' (Eldar) he had 7 guardians standing, but I know he was just toying with me. And the last (Black Templars) was a massacre, killed 6 marines or so.
I learned pretty much in my first time there, don't attack in cover and try to stay in cover.
Live and learn.
Thank you for the tips, next on the shopping list is few genestealers.
Hey what do you have? I Kinda wonder, I mean we are giving you all these ideas but we cant really help unless we know what you can work with.
P.S. In battles of 500 point area I find 10 ripper bases to be pretty awsome-30 wounds and 30 attacks really rock for 100 pts.
Let's see.. I only have 32 or so gaunts, 24 hormagaunts, 6 genestealers, 6 warriors, 2 raveners and 1 lictor. so I used pretty much all my models in the game, next ones I'll buy, as I said earlier, will be genestealers.Originally Posted by Commissar_Malevich
And I can't use ripper swarms because they don't allow creatures with more than 2 wounds in there.
