I was just thinking, what would be the pros/cons of using a brood of Warriors instead of a Tyrant, for a HQ choice?
If you're going against an anti-tank list, warriors will serve you better as lascannon/lances/railguns don't hurt as much (1 wound of 12 vs 1 wound out of 4). However, warriors are so vulnerable to small arms fire that they are not resilient. I would take warriors in a list where the HQ played very little roll in the over all army and wouldn't cripple you to have it being targeted. Or if you were doing an all warrior list.
"The internet perceives censorship as damage, and routes around it."
Pros: Warriors are cheaper than hive tyrants.
Cons: they're fragile.
warriors look nice and have the option of being HQ for a reason, but a hive tyrant does make the force. a tyranid swarm looks incomplete without one. and they are a lot of fun to play with!
every unit in warhammer has pros and cons anyway right?
Pros of warriors:
Warriors are easier to use in fast swarm armies (unless your making a flyrant)
Warriors can be more versatile
Warriors come in larger numbers and can be "hidden" along with other warriors
Warriors can be simply devastating if used right
Warriors are good anti-infantery
Pros of Hive tyrants:
Hive tyrants are stronger
Hive tyrants can take a bit more punishment
Hive tyrants can become giant walking stone walls (with guard and such, 10W hehe)
Hive tyrants are just better att shooting
Hive tyrants are also better anti-tank
Cons of warriors:
Warriors are VERY fragile
Warriors have a tendency to get stuck between units if they're too large
Warriors is the worst thing if you don't do it right
Cons of Hive tyrants:
Hive tyrants can be very expensive
Hive tyrants are much more likely to become a fire magnet
Hive tyrants are not always as fast as warriors
Hive tyrants can't hug cover that well(but they don't need to either)
That's my Pros&cons about Tyrant vs Warrior
