    HQ choice for horde

    I'm thinking of starting tyrnanids the list I was thinking of would be tervigaunts/gargoyle, tervigons, venomthropes (for cover), zoanthropes/hive guard for anti tank. I would like to use the tervigons as core but I'm not sure which Hq choice would compliment this army

    you can just use one of the tervigons AS an HQ choice if you would like. It might be expensive, but a winged HQ unit (prime or HT) might help give your gargoyles some bite/synopsis. Prime would probably be better b/c it would be a ton cheaper, could actually join the unit for a many wound synapsis unit (in effect) and would look cooler, imo, when surrounded by these little beasties. Just my two cents. Use it to buy something else if you so desire. =)

    If you're using gargoyles, I think a winged tyrant with old adversary is a great addition to such a mob.

    Warrior Primes also make great HQs for horde armies. They're cheap, giving you more points to spend on those gribblies, yet they still pack quite a punch. Because your shooting is so important to a horde list -- moreso than in one with more MC muscle -- I would definitely look to take one of these guys and attach him to a unit of zoanthropes or hive guard for babysitting and bodyguard protection. He can absorb a few wounds -- especially instant death wounds from missiles and lascannons -- and threaten anything that might want to get into an assault with your squishy shooters.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think i'm going to go with a Prime or two. ( The hive tyrant is awesome but I think he's too pricey for my list)

    Primes can't have wings and can only be attached to a unit of Warriors.

    As for the origianl poster. Take the Parasite of Mortex, the ability to add more rippers to your horde is something I think you'll like.

    Yes, I know. You'll note my recommendations for the Prime had nothing to do with flying.

    Incorrect. As an Independent Character the Prime may be attached to almost any Infantry unit. Hive Guard and Zoanthropes are both Infantry units and therefor may be joined by 1 or 2 Primes if you so desire. I outlined why I think this is an excellent thing to do.
