i have only just started collecting Tyranids. i was wondering if someone can look over my army list and tell what i have done right/wrong, and possibly get some pointers :yes: :yes:
Carnifex-- 171 points
1st: 32 points
2nd: 30 points
3rd: 44 points
Genestealers Brood: 192 points
8x Spinegaunts: 56 points
8x Hormagaunts: 104 points
i am going to be buying a Hive Tyrant and maybe 3 tyrant guards later on before medusa V starts (i have yet to play a game) but any suggestions for a HQ, i appreciate

Don't post the cost of upgrades and wargear!! Only post the total cost - I'd change it quick before a Mod sees....
Well, it looks like you bought the battleforce, which fortunately for us is a complete army. I would do one of two things. Either buy another battleforce, or buy a couple boxes of gaunts, and a Hive Tyrant.
As far as outfitting, spinegaunts are meant to be a cheap meat shield, don't upgrage them it's a waste of points. Avoid excessive improving of your gaunts as they are best in a swarm. Making them effective individually makes them too expensive.
Give more info on what you how you want to employ your army and we can give you some better input.
Elerion I think you misunderstood what i meant about not posting the cost of wargear!
You can't say "Chain Fist Xpts" because it breaks copyright but you can say "Terminator with Assault Cannon 60pts" because it doesn't divulge the cost of individual items in your list (negating the need fo people to have the codex).
I suggest you repost your list with the wargear listed but only a TOTAL of the points per unit
Well, considering he posted Carnifex XXX pts, without going into detail on biomorphs, and that XXX isn't the base cost of a Carnie, nor is 32 pts the cost of a TW, much less 30 and 44, I fail to see why you keep telling him to revise his post HE'S NOT GIVING AWAY ANY DETAILS, and in fact some of his point totals may even be wrong. Give him advice on his army and purchase strategy.
Not trying to flame or anything Archival, but his post has been edited. The original post spell out the cost of each model and the cost of each upgrade! Do you honestly think that I would consider the current incarnation of his list as a breach of copyright?! As I said, not trying to flame, just setting the record straight and making sure we don't get in trouble with the mods.
I know it was edited, it was edited before I posted. I think I mistook your second post expounding on you point to say he should edit it again, rather than what you mean. But, y ou must admit, it's still not helping him with his army.
Fair point but the rules of Copyright cannot be underestimated. Anyway I digress....
a broodlord would be good and either some more gaunts or a fex. also give ure fex a few more upgrades (everyone likes expensive fexes)
What is your carnie and TW armed with? That will make a difference in your army. I like the HT purchase, but you should also look at building up troops. I personally think that the battleforce is the best way to build an army, but that's me.
