I havent started putting together my nid box (which ive had for two weeks). im not sure if my nid thinking is up to snuff, so... im going to post some units im thinking of fielding in a 1500 point game then i'd appreciate some suggestions.
tyrant will probably use a vc and be a shooty hq.
enhanced senses, extended carapace, shadow of the warp, tox sac, scytal, and tox miasma
i will also field 5? warriors as an hq choice.
4 deathspitters, 1 barbedstrangler, enhanced senses, tox sac, scytal
probably 4 cc warriors
rending tox sac devourers enhanced senses both adrenal glands extended carapace
maybe a lictor not sure if its worth it or not
anyhow... How does the tyrant stack up, the warriors? i want to make a balanced army.
I'm in a similar quandary with my box.
Most people go for either a flying cc tyrant or a shooty walking one with tyrant guard. I'll be doing the second, since modelling the wings is a pain. Most of our stuff is more expensive in the new dex', so i would be very carefull not to buy things you don't need. So, maybe skip the miasma on a shooty tyrant, etc.
Also, the army box comes with 6 warriors, not 5.

im not to worry about price of stuff, i just dont want to get an army put together and find out it sucks. i also play chaos and tau.
Well its not that the army will suck its just that it won't be what you are looking for so you will expect different things to happen with it and then they won't and will most likely lose. like say you have all terma gaunts and a hive tyrant and some warriors and you expect tou outshoot and out assult the other arly chances are pretty good you won't accomplish that but if you have say hormagaunts and a hive tyrant and some warriors chances are vary high that you will out CC them for sure but you just gotta rush forward without fear of death.
There is no such thing as innocence only varrying levels of guilt...
Space Marine army (Black Phoenix)-1400 pts un upgraded
Tyranid army : postponed
for the shootly tyrant... loose the STalons and give it either a BStrangler or TLDeathspitters and loose the tox miasma as you will probably not get to use it very often. Use shadow of the warp only if you know your opponent are using lots of psykers... otherwise Catalyst, Psychic Scream are both good... or replacing one shooting weapon with WBlast.
On your HQ warriors... add ExtendedChar on them.. they'll need it. I think VC will do better than BSrangler... but if you do fight alot ork, IG and DE then it might be good. Also if you want better chanse to hit make them TL:ed...
On your CC warriors... I'd say loose the devourers and enhanced senses and get 3xStalons 1xLashWhip and leaping on all of them. As they're gong CC they'll need all speed then can get, and w/o leaping you'll mostly fight like in round 3 or 4... with leaping in round 1-2. And Devourers arn't worth it IMO... yes you've Ax2 attacks... but at a cost of -1S, AP- and bad range.
Hm... you'll need to field as many homagaunsts as you can to be a meatwall infront of everything. Maybe leaping rippers just to take hits. Buffed strealers are nice too... (Acid Maw, ExtendedChar, STalons, Shuttlers and TSacs = Monster stealers from hell ^_^ )
Save the RC/Devourer combo for winged warriors as these have better movement
all this is making alot of sense, thanks alot. i do face orks, alot and ig alot, but i just like the barbed strangler anyhow, is the vc that much better? ill have to go leaping on 1 squaq of warriors then. ill drop the devourers and enhanced senses on em, i dont know why i did that. drop miasma.
ok my genestealers are gunna have extended carapace and scything talons. seems slightly cheaper and way rending friendly.
