Welcome to Librarium Online!
<hi all. Ã*Â´m new in the universe of 40k. i have some ideas for a 1500 points army. i wonder what you guys think of it.
1HT winged( 2x ScyTal ADrWS AdrI ToxSacs AdrI ExtCar PSychic blast EnhSen Psychic Scream)
1HT ( EnhSen ToxSAc ExtCAr VCx2)
1 Carnifex( EnhSen VCx2 Ext Car)
3 Biovores( Bio-acidx2 Poison)
somebody help me ot make a nice army!
dont double post, use the edit button
its in the bottom right.
Back from a long adventure.
second is fine but first needs a little help1HT winged( 2x ScyTal ADrWS ToxSacs AdrI ExtCar Catalyst Psychic Scream)
1HT winged( EnhSen ToxSAc ExtCAr ScyTal VC Catalyst)
give it 2 ST all biomorphs wings extcar and wb itll be 189 points
is best used in 2-3 id drop the biovores for another of these and more points for leapers/stealers
1 Carnifex( EnhSen VC ScyTal)
Id give him all biomorphs ExtCar 2 VCs so he has great tankbusting and can hit easier/do more dmg in cc/strike before fists/hit easier in CC
Id either drop him or the walking tyrant due to 1 TMC per 500 pts etiquette but you dont have to its just manners
id drop a brood of spinies for more leapers and on the hormies give them AG I and AG WS instead of the basic hormies only having WS gland
Id make them into 1 brood of 9 and get more leapers

However, please bear in mind that this is an international forum... The people who'd answer Your post might very well not be around within the timeframe You're on. Thus please don't post pleas for answers within a mere half an hour to Your original post.
Also remember to read the long sticky topic "Newbie FAQ on Tyranid Units" if You haven't done so already.
Winged CC Tyrant: I'd ditch Catalyst and take EnhSen + WBlast instead... Pure CC simply can't hack it, and the Tyrant can be one of Your most accurate ranged creatures! Even Winged it should be able to more than make up for the points spent on the EnhS + WB.
Catalyst I don't take because all my creatures which can take AdrG I have them... Better to strike first rather than simultaneously. Thus unless You find Yourself repeatedly assaulting enemies in terrain, I'd forget about Catalyst.
Winged VCannon Tyrant: Forget the VCannon on a Winged Tyrant... You'll reach CC so soon that the VC will be a waste of points. WBlast suggestsed above is much more effective for Winged Tyrants, since it costs less and still allows maximum CC effectiveness.
Lictor: Fun, just remember that they rarely kill their points worth... Their main use is as a distraction, drawing fire away from more lethal parts of the swarm.
Hormagaunts: Decent enough, though I myself prefer Mutable Genus Gaunts. Mine are Gaunt + Leap + AG WS + AG I + ST.
In 1500pts I'd suggest a minimum of two broods of Leaping Gaunts with 16-24 models per brood... I find Leaping Gaunts are essential for my tactics.
Hive Node essential.
Spinegaunts: Solid cheap mass, but too much of it... I prefer the faster Leaping Gaunts, and field a single brood of Spinegaunts.
Hive Node useful.
Genestealers: Can be useful, but need Leaping Gaunts to support them... Namely, Gaunts engage the enemy in CC, blocking LOS to a majority of models and thus 'Stealers get closer with less casualties.
I wouldn't field them in minimum-size broods.
Carnifex: I'd take the works... For a VCannon Shooty'Fex at least EnhSen and ExtCar, but I also tend to take the ToxS and both AdrG for good measure.
Bioweapon configuration depending on how much points You want to spend... VC + ScyT is what I call a "Lesser Shooty'Fex", and is decent enough against a singular AV13-14 vehicle. The "Greater Shooty'Fex" packs 2x VC for the best potential long-range anti-vehicle firepower the Tyranids can get.
OOE: I find 'Fexes too slow to rely on to reach CC, and thus advise against them... I'd drop this one and spend the points elsewhere.
Biovores: Solid, though I'd suggest getting a third one with Poison & Bio-Acid as well.
