While sat here on nite shift trying to sort out a new army list i see that most nids have a BS rating of 3, even creatures that don't even fire like the broodlord and the Guards. Now why oh why would the Warrior get a BS of 2 , yes i know you can upgrade them but there one of are main HQ's, gaunts get a better BS than them :huh: even Ravener who are mainly cc can shoot better, to me it makes no sence at all after all these are some of are most switched on troops they are synapse and have a stat line close to a SM bar the BS !! What are your views on this ?
If it lives it will be consumed
I'm pretty sure its because they have to be upgraded to make a desent army to work.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces
In a way it will save you points if you decide to go for CC warriors. But I see your point.
Here are some Tyranid items I have going on Ebay!
*nods* Looking back to 2nd Edition, Warriors and Carnifexes were certainly better shooters than Gaunts. Zoanthropes were even better.

it seems that way, doesnt it.
I seem to remember Bio-plasma from Carni's being lethal in 2nd edition. They should've made it so he basically has a bio acid spore mine in his mouth
that would be lethal enough, me thinks.
Maybe it's so that you can have a close combat squad without spending extra pts on the BS?
"If a ninja does anything anywhere it won't make a sound, but if it does it's probably gonna be the last sound you hear."
I think Everyarmy are worst in 3th edition. However i think the bio-plasma should be like flamer cause ..... itÂ´s funnier
Well it really goes with the fact that the tyranids are getting more and more customizable so they are giving you as many options as you want.
About the bio-plasma, I do think that it should have a flamer template because it is like a lightning bolt or a fire ball but that would be waaaaaaaaaaaay to good!!!
old topic I know, but still...
wouldn't a flamer template, fires straight ahead in CC almost hit nothing? at most u get i think 3 models...still better than one, sure but still....
