    2 1k Lists

    Ok, so we're going on deployment and looking to have a 40K gaming group, right now the points are set at 1K to start with. The armies other people are taking are Eldar, Chaos SM, SM, Tau, and IG. I'm taking Nids, here are two lists I made up. Tell me what you think:

    Flyrant- 203 w/ Adrenal Glands, I/WS, Toxic Miasma, Winged, Scything Talons x2, Warp Field

    Tyranid Warriors (5) 194pts- 4 w/ TL Devourers, 1 with VC and ST, all with Ext Carapace, Enhanced Senses, Toxin Sac

    Spinegaunts- 18 - 90pts
    Hormagaunts- 16 - 160 pts
    Genestealers- 8 - 160 pts

    Heavy Gun Fex - 193pts - w/ VC, BS, Ext Carapace, Spine Banks, Enhanced Senses, Reinforced Chitin

    Total: 1000pts, 49 Models

    Zilla List
    Mixed Tyrant - 173 pts - w/ ST, VC, Enhanced Senses, Adrenal Gland I/WS, Toxic Miasma, Extended Carapace
    Tyrant Guard (2) - 90pts
    Brood lord - 80pts - w/ Extended Carapace
    Genestealer Retinue (9) - 180pts w/ Extended Carapace
    Stossfex - 204pts - ST x 2, Flesh Hooks, Toxic Miasma, Tail Mace, AG I/WS, Tusked, Thornback, Reinforced Chitin, Extended Carapace, Bonded Exoskeleton, Symbiote Rippers
    Heavy Gun Fex -193 - same as above
    Spinegaunts - 8 - 40pts
    Spinegaunts - 8 - 40pts

    Total: 1000pts
    Models: 31

    So what do you think? I think I'll have alot of fun with either one, but would like some opinions and input (I'm the only Nid player in the group, and haven't played 4th Ed yet)

    A very solid Sky Tyrant. Beware Force Weapons with this guy. Try to get him Toxin Sacs if you can, so you can one-shot-kill toughness three models (like Eldar Farseers). You might consider making him a Sky Devourer (2x twin-linked devourers, enhanced senses, toxin sacs)

    Decent... but unless you're buying them toxin sacs, I'd drop the twin-linked Devourers for a Deathspitter / Scything Talon combo. Not only does the deathspitter make them a threat to some vehicles, but the blast template more than makes up for the one (average) that will miss, as you'll probably be hitting multiple models.

    Solid... I assume (based on cost) that the Genestealers have extended carapace? They'll definitely need it.

    Good Carnifex... if you're short on points, drop Spine Banks. With the short range on Spinebanks, they'll probably never get used. Use the points you save to get him something that'll help if he gets assaulted... maybe Toxic Miasma or Adrenal Glands.

    Ick... :/ I really advise not trying to make your Tyrant multi-role. Drop the Scything Talons for Twin-Linked Deathspitters, and drop some of your CC upgrades (Adrenal Glands I) for Toxin Sacs. Not only will that keep your Tyrant a CC threat if he gets assaulted, but it'll make him a definite threat as he fires 2 strength 8 shots, and a twin-linked strength 7 blast template every turn.

    Consider taking Lash Whips against armies where your Tyrant is likely to be assaulted (so, Space Marines / CSM / maybe Eldar).

    Good brood... but I'd actually reduce the number of stealers in your brood lord's retinue to about 5-6. The brood lord's a big model and can be hard to keep in cover if he's got a large brood with him.

    Beautiful Fire Magnet / Baitfex. Be sure to get this guy Toxin Sacs, though. People fear S10 instant kills.

    Can't go wrong with Spinegaunts.

    Two really solid lists for someone who hasn't played 4th edition yet. Most of my suggestions are aesthetic (Spine Banks really doesn't help your Bombardment 'Fex, due to the short range... it might help if things get close, but if you're using it, you're probably about to be assaulted... and if you never fire it, you're wasting points. :/ )
