after much research and debate and reading and reading, i finally ordered my first tyranid list.
1 hive tyrant
coming from eldar to tyranid i am absolutely mortified. im used to small amounts of heavy firepower and ignoring armor on nearly every shot. i honestly am curious if i am going to be getting stomped every game, but im always up for a challenge.
i read mixed reviews on the zoanthropes/raveners/lictors but decided to try them out.
what do you think? good starter army?
I think it's a good idea for a starter army to try different units, but I would have probably proxied some of them first to really know what I wanted to buy. Zoans work for me, as they give Synapse for cheap, and pack a punch. The lone Lictor can be really helpful to get your broodlor into play in a time, so that's good in my book too. Just don't count on it dealing too much damage.
How are you planning on equipping your warriors, fexes and the tyrant?
of course i got 2 box sets. i also have possibly the best warhammer mini ordering site ever i got everything from.
dirt cheap warhammer stuff. battleset for $67 = yes please. no i dont work for them =P
as far as how im going to trick them out, im not 100% sure yet. i face MEQ's when i play, so i have to decide what would work best against them. probably lots of rending CC attacks.

Rending isnt as impressive as it sounds.
Do a small Proxie battle, stealers vs Scorpians or MEQs.
You'll see Rending is good, but not as impressive in battle as many opponants believe it is.

As of Tyranid 5th Ed. codex I have the Gaunts I wanted. I did, however, loose the sniperfexs I relied upon and they were more important then the gaunts.
im used to rending, i field harlequins and rangers regularly. i know not to rely on it, but i also know its handy when it kicks in.
Slightly cheaper. And free worldwide shipping, too, I think for orders above something like 15$. I've had great results from them, and heard stories of people buying from Australia and receiving their order within a week. Can't get much better than that.
