    Unit of the Week: Hive Guard

    So, another UOTW, Hive Guard seems popular around here, so talk all you like!

    As for what I do with Hive Guard, I usually only field one group of 2-3 or if I really need extra points I'll replace one of my Zoanthrope Broods with another unit of 2-3. Awesome at taking out lightly armoured vehicles and Nobz. Never go a game without them.

    Post away,

    The Warlord

    They are a good unit. Almost too good, I'd even go so far as to say that the rules the they have for when your opponent gets cover saves is almost broken. However, they are needed in every Tyranid army because in 5th edition if you don't have a dozen Light Vehicles, your not doing Warhammer right. Thus, Hive guard are the only reliable way to fight transports.

    In a 2000pt list i will have a unit of Hive Guard and a unit of Zoanthropes. Great combo.
    Army's used: Space Wolves, Tomb Kings, High Elves, Tyranids, Tau and Eldar.

    Id have to say Tyrannofexs, carnifexs and dakka creatures can also do the job. But hive guard are best.

    Cant really add much here, appart from I always run 2 broods of 3. Usually paired up with a unit of zoanthropes and they've never let me down yet.
