A lot of you won't know this (or me, for that matter) but I started off with Tyranids. Way back in 3rd. So, I'm coming back sometime about Christmas. And I'm wanting to go the opposite end of the spectrum. Before I was red in tooth and claw. Now I'm wanting to cover my opponents in acid and watch them scream.
So, I was thinking. I could run
A devourer MC list.
Or a Warrior Heavy template list.
Which do we think, from the general nid community?
Both Work, atm Twin Link Devs seem to be big.
I really love TL Devourers, and running a list full of them is really fun. 5 TMCs fitted with TL Devourers is a thing of beauty.
Nothing like TL Devourers, the sounds of screaming gun lines is fanstatic ....
Sisters Of Battle "Order of the Holy Flame"
Nids "Splinter Fleet Bestia"
Depending on the size why not both? And sorry but I had to snicker at the "way back in 3rd" comment. Personally I would think a mix would be pretty effective while allowing you to have broad synapse. The past few games my units of warriors have been increasing in size (all equipped with deathspitters and 1 barbed strangler).

Both could be fun. Only problem is a shooty warrior squad is so expensive compared to a dakkafex.
Maybe if I divided it evenly. I have 8 slots. Make 4 Blast template and 4 dakka. Hmm....
I'm enjoying a mix of MC w/ dev and warriors w/ devs. Really if you go all out shooting, you can field both to your taste.
Actually basic ES/Deathspitter warriors are reasonably cheap. Maybe throw spinefists/fleshborers on them as a points-filler secondary weapon. And even without upgraded strength they're throwing S5 blast templates around like candy. Maybe add in a venom cannon for that extra oomph.
What troops would you use though? Termigaunts, spinegaunts?
Gonna give your MCs acid maw? Just curious how far you're going to push the theme.
