    Tyranid Kill Teams?

    Im going to be making a tyranid kill team but im not sure which troops to use, i can create a background for them easily and a history but its actualy choosing my 160 points worth of troops that will be confusing. Anybody out there got a kill team they can give an example of or any advice on making one? Thanks

    Probally the best troops to use in kill teams for the nids are genestealers and are also the most fluffy anyways. So you probally should base it around them more then anything.
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

    I thought about that. Theres alot of variety in genestealers but i wanted some shooty guys too like termagaunts and i thought hormagaunts or gargoyles would be faster and therefor better for the game. Now ive exhausted all the possible legal options and they all seem equal to me.
    I got another question too. Are synapse creatures needed or does the kill team pass all tests of those kinds because of the rules?

    Consider a small brood of Spike Rifle or Strangleweb gaunts. 'Gaunt snipers just screams "kill team" to me.

    That sounds tempting actualy. Id like to make myself one where each tyranid in the team looks like an individual, which is a very difficult thing with tyranids. A spike rifle would certainly help one of them stand out

    I might also stick in a few genestealers with extended carapaces though.

    If you want the most fluffiest killteam, take 2 lictors.

    It breaks alot of the rules of kill teams i think. Has to be 5 to 12 models and only single wound creatures are allowed, which is why im stuck with gaunts, genestealers and gargoyles.

    nope, it was mentioned in WD that Nids are allowed a kill-team of 2 lictors, it doesn't break any rules, I'll check which WD it was.

    Ooh thanks, it'll be interesting to try, if it doesn't work i can always make one out of gaunts and genestealers. Lictors dont seem to give it much variety i would think, but i wouldn't know. Ive only been wargaming about a month.

    Can't find it but it's the 2nd UK WD that's dedicated to the nids, it has a warrior on the frontpage.

    ***edit, just found the bloody thing, it's UK WD 307***
