This is just an idea and would be against fluff and probably called cheesy btut im just wondering if it would work.
Have just 4 species
Warriors- Venom cannon
Gaunts with fleshborer +1Bs +1S
Take broods of 8 Gaunts then 2 in each could have V cannon.
Warriors have v cannon and barbed strangler (so are flexible, i know only 1 shoot each turn)
3 Zoanthrope with warpblast
Do you think it would work?
(i am not planning on buying this just wondering what you think)
Who thinks nid MC need a 5+ or 4+ invulnerable.
You'll need an Elite selection, so regular warriors may do. And as far as your Heavy Support goes, they can't take table quarters, so I would be hesitant to use just them.
Otherwise I'd say cut it down to 3 broods and VC every gaunt you can. Up the BS and the S of the gaunts and use them for fire support. I'd also suggest spinefists and expect most of your kills to come from the Venom Cannon gaunts.
Damn, that would be expensive....
Yeah Barbed strangler is ass on a platter on a warrior. Ord blast S3 no AP? Whoooooo hooo.
VC's are good tho. BS should only be on Carnis or your Tyrant. A tyranid shooty army suffers from lack of AP. A space marine army would eat you - Thousand Suns would eat you twice and ask for thirdsies.
Could cut down on species but holding quarters is hardly a concern as i will probably never use it, (could keep models in reserve in case i have to fight super cheese army) i have more respect for the fluff than to use this in a normal game.
I have put my real nid list in the army l forum. That one is much more balanced.
wont work nids are usless without assault
It is only an idea ragnar, something i have said i wont do. It is not meant to work perfectly, or even work at all that much. Just a possible idea of something that could be tried
What were saying is, its not even worth a try. That would be like taking a Thousand Sons Army without Thousand Sons Marines.
Don't knock it until you try it.
...of course, I'm not gonna be the first to try it.
go for it! woot! i have an assault tau list that won a few times, and if it dosen't win, its fun anyway! this is a game. I can assault khorne beserkers with firewarriors and kroot if i want to, thank you very much! for this list i speak of i upgrade WS and I of my suits and give them close range weapons so that they can assault after a volley of deadly shooting! how about you're shooty nid list agianst my assaulty tau list! what a good even, game! eh? venom cannons would rip my guys apart. gaunts vs. firewarriors would be interesting to say the least, crisis suits assaulting a squad of warriors defending thier position with vcs? sound cool! yep!
I have fielded a fairly shooty Nid army for a try once.
My army list used
1 Carnifex with Barbed strangler
5 Warriors with Venom Cannon
1 Hive Tyrant with Venom Cannon
about 16 Hormagaunts
about 12 genestealers
about 16 termagaunts
I tried it verse a Berserker of Korne army. It did ok, but I did lose by about 50 points.
