Welcome to Librarium Online!
Currently, I have a very oddball force. My brother bought the Battle of Maccrage set, and I found a 50% liquidation sale of (I think) old models that were cheaper than current ones with base price. I bought their entire 'Nids set (except for one Hive Tyrant), which wasn't much, but leaves me with a very oddball army. Here are the models I have:
- 2 Hive Tyrants
- 6 Tyranid Warriors
- 18 Genestealers
- 10 Hormagaunts
- 7 Spore Mines
I am fully willing to buy whatever I would need to make this a decent force, but I wasn't sure where to go with it. I thought maybe going with a Godzilla list, with a bunch of 'Fexes and 'Stealers. Or maybe just add in Zoanthropes, Biovores, Lictors, Raveners, and just have a very oddball, loner-type list. It would seem pretty unique (at least, in my opinion). I want my list around 1000 to 1500 points, so a pretty medium-size swarm.
So, what do you suggest I buy?
Well it all comes down to how confident you feel.
Armies that specialise such as shooty swarms and elite swarms (i.e warriors stealers raveners etc.) tend to be difficult to use as they are low in numbers or that shooting is not the tyranids strongest mode of attack.
It was suggested in WD that you should get numbers up, in the form of many small gaunts squads before adding biomorphs. You have lots of synapse for the 10 gaunts that depend on it. With many gaunts squads you can capture lots of table quarters and present a problem to your opponent in which one to shoot.
Lots of FoC rolls as well.
Raveners and Zoanthorpes are good buys to though!!
