Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just started playing WH40k. I choose to play nids because it was either them or dark eldar because my friends already choose the other races.
But this one kid wastes me every time I play. His heavy weapons waste 75% of my army before I can even get within asualt range. We are all poor as hell so We play low points. I have ravener, a brood of both hormagants and termagants. Old one eye and a warrior brood of 3.
So we are starting to bulk up to more points and I need to know what to add to my army so I can get down to his heavy weapons team before he blasts through my crappy armor
I don't know, but why did you put an Old One Eye?
I don't know. Because I had no idea what I was doing and he looked so dng cool. And I only had to pay 25$ so I thought it was a good deal If I ever wnted to use him.
Ok well for the moment you should take him out and add a Hive Tyrant and after a Carnifex...(I think that the Red Terror looks cooler than the Old One Eye, and he can swallow (not the powerfirts))...
Someone who has more experience than me might help you more
Well, how many points do you play? It looks like your games that you have played where no more than 750, not very good for a Tyranid player. Tyranids need at least 1000 points before they can start to win battles(in most cases). I like how you put the Old One Eye in there. He is very good against enemy fire. Rememeber you can only use a Red Terror in a 1500+ point army. Anyway do you have the codex yet? Also dont use just one Ravener, it wont do anything and die in one turn.
If your going to use warriors give them at least a 4+ save...But I would rather have a Tyrant instead of warriors. How many Hormagaunts and Termagaunts do you have? Infact just list your whole army. In my experiance with playing the Tyranids is that Termagaunts suck. Use Spinegaunts(they look like termagaunts but with 2 fist thingies). Spinegaunts are cheaper and are just as effective, plus if you shoot(which gaunts hardly ever do. If you had a choice to shoot or assault, you should assault), they dont get an armor save. Spinegaunts are worth 5 points, while Terms are worth 7, it adds up fast.
Tell me what your IG player uses, I can help you more if you need it.
Did I miss something? I know it doesn't say that in the codex. Is it in the Chapter Approved book or what? Let me know please, thanks!they dont get an armor save.
And as far as tyranid strategems. Seek cover asap lol. Actually, keep Old One Eye too, b/c he can take the punishment and has the chance to stay tickin. If anything, he should draw fire from your enemy's troops while you rush in with your horms/terms.
I don't know about the spinefist thing.
I'd mutate some terms myself, so that they have the +1 st (toxin sacs), +1 init (adrenal glands) unless they are already higher in Ini than the IG, and whatever it is that increases their WS (I forget).
Also, jsut b/c your friends already field other armies, doesn't FORCE you to have to choose from the Nids and Eldar. Choose whoever the hell you want, and if they have a problem with it, stomp them in a battle .
"Can you put that in a memo and title it '***** I already know!'"
Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
It's ok, I really like tyranids, it's just that the guy I'm playing against has these hardcore heavy weapons that blast the crap out of me.
I was thinking lictors and ravenors that can get down there fast and draw fire while gaunt reinforcements come and do their damage. it might just work...
Well yeah, get yourself at least 2 more raveners...
I never liked Raveners. All they do is look cool, but one round of fire against them and they are gone.
When I said that they dont get an armor save, I was refering when the Spinegaunts shoot. They wound a normal Guardsmen on a 4+ and its a AP of 5 so...
Heavy Weapons hey? Thats a toughy. Is he tank based heavy weapons or troop based? Also what kind of heavy weapons is he using? Hopefully not a lot of lascannons, but if so you can just swarm him.
Well gaunts have to have one weapon. The Spinefist is the cheapest. Thats why I use them. For crying out loud you have have 24 Spinegaunts for 120 points! Or 48 Spinegaunts for 240 points! Thats a lot of guys, plus the Hormagaunts...Hmmm.
It looks likehe is setting the terrain to his advantage. Put heaps of buildings on the field. Just chuck boxes everywhere, and I'm sure you'll win.
R U 0K!??!? BUHHHHST WUUUULFFFFF!!!
