    <_<

    I have been playing the greenskins in Warhammer for about 4 years. And now im starting to really get into 40k and i have about 1300 points of tyranids, (im still painting most of it) and i am just wondering what other people think about tyranids and what you all think is the nastyest tyranid unit. Ive played a little and read a lot, (as far as 40k goes) and I have loads of tactics in mind to use... but im still wondering about which>

    units and tactics different players have been crushed by or won with

    :rofl: just looking for IDEAS and such

    o&#39; and who do you think is the toughest opponent and easyest opponent for Tyranids generally?

    Welcome to the Mob&#33; ...Er, Swarm&#33; (Y)

    What&#39;s this doing in the Ork forums? I&#39;ve already reported it to a moderator, so hopefully it will be relocated into the Tyranid forum where it belongs.

    As for Tyranid units and tactics, why not read the posts pinned in the Tyranid forums, "Newb FAQ on Tyranid Units" and the Tyranid articles?

    I love the nids first of all, customization was hte main thing that brought me to them. To answer your questions...
    Favorite Unit - Hive Tyrant
    Least Favorite Unit - (personal preference here, they are still very useful) Tyranid Warriors
    Favorite Tactic - Bring in swarms of gaunts to tie up their units and block LoS until the big guys can get there
    Favorite Enemy - Tau
    Toughest Opponent - CSM

    Hope this helps.

    No... only TMCs can block line of sight. Everyone loves gaunts though.
    My favourite Tyranid would have to be the lictor. They have that &#39;scare the crap out of you&#39; feel that the tyranids have lost, which will hopefully be reclaimed by the swarm once the new codex is released. Everyone knows what you can thow at them now; it just sucks. Even the evolve-your-own rules are common knowledge.

    That said, I am a firm believer in the ideal that you can never have enough gaunts. Never enough...

    My favourite food would have to be sisters of battle. Mainly because my old man plays witch hunters. Crunchy on the outside, soft meat in the middle. Mmm.
    Least favourite? Anything with an AP value :lol:

    When the gaunts are in BtB combat, the BtB combat blocks LoS.

    Everything i like, i like b/c they earn their points back and help win they game(range, str, ap or whatever) , those that i put as dislikes i thought were pretty ineffective b/c of low toughness, and high points cost.

    favourite unit- hive tyrant because they rock in close combat and when armed with 2xVC can rock at shooting too&#33;
    least favourite unit- none, after the tyrant, i like them all the same.
    favourite tactic- do you even have to ask that? SWARM &#39;EM&#33;&#33;&#33;
    favourite enemys- tau because they&#39;re always a challenge.
    toughest oppnoents- also tau, as said they are always a challenge.


    i chose &#39;nids because the gaunts, tyrants and warriors all look so cool and you can convert like mad&#33;

    once, i decided to go shooty against tau- HUGE mistake, but swarming in the next battle was a HUGE success.
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.
