Looking to return to playing 40k.
I keep telling myself to start playing again, but never get around to it.
Im an old 2nd/3rd edition player.
Played a tiny bit of 4th edition.
Recently got the 5th edition book, and had a bit of a read. Still yet to play a game using them though.
Do the tyranids have a 5th edition codex?
Or do they still use the 4th edition one?
I think the last game i played was under the 4th edition rules with the 3rd edition codex.
I realise the rending ability is screwed now.
Are genestealers still a viable selection for the bulk troop choice?
I think i have a hive tyrant, 28 termagaunts, 3 warriors, 3 zoanthropes, about 10 ripper bases, and something like 90 genestealers.
Whats compeditive these days with tyranids?
Im not looking to enter any major tournaments or anything, but i want to be able to win the occasional social game.
My playgroup are the kind of people that like to brag about wins, so i would like to be able to silence them half the time.
Any tactics or effective equipment choices would be very much appreciated.
If the stuff that i have is not enough to build an effective army, then i am more than happy to spend another ~$500, and sell off some of my space marines if $500 isnt enough.
Looking forward to playing a couple of games again, its been a few years.
Tyranids are still on a fourth edition codex but there's rumoured to be a new one in the works.
Genestealers are till decent, rending may have lost some power but they can now get rerolls to hit for 1 point per model (feeder tendrils). I think nidzilla (as many monstrous creatures as possible) is the most competitive build.
Good luck and welcome back into the swarm!
