Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have not played my Nids since 3rd Ed. so i picked up the new Dex and there are a lot of changes, but from what i heard about 4th Ed they are in my favor.
I would like to make a swarm army for my Nids and I know that i need a lot more models but i am not sure where to start. I will list what i have and i would like some suggestions of what more i need. Please remember i a going for a swarm list and all models listed are 3rd ed models unless stated otherwise.
1 Tyrant w/venom cannon and Talons
3 Tyrant Guard
3 Z-thropes (1 is 2nd ed)
4 Warriors (1 2nd ed) random weapons
24 Termagaunts w/devourers
5 ripper swarms
1 old one eye
1 fex w/venom cannon and Talons
I have a feeling I am in need of more gaunts (both?) and fast attack Gargoyles, but i feel that i am lacking any real ranged support and will have a hard time getting into cc with enough numbers to stay.
Id buy a battalion box for starters gives ya 3 more warriors and some more swarm items. Id also get a box of gargoyles at least. they are awsome now. I personally field in my 1850 army 60 hormagaunts broke up in units of 20. Id alos make a terivigon so you can get more termagaunts sprouting forth. so possible a carnifex box too. depends on how deep the pockets are but id start here. but thats just me.
Not a bad idea... but what should i do with the Genestealer? that would give me 32 stealers. Should I run a full squad of 20, two squads of 16, or just a 1 smaller squad?
