I stopped buying some of my 'Nids after the first FAQ was brought out (I'm so happy that that they changed it). So now I'm off to the GW shop on Sunday and I have around 60-70 pounds. So far (And I will be using in my army) I have a Forgeworld Malanthrope, Broodlord (Haven't bought his retinue yet as I don't know how many I should field), A Lictor, 3 Zoeys, 8 Hormies, 8 fleshborer gaunts and thats it. I am aiming to make a 1500 point army list and have not decided what type of army to play (Please help with pros and cons). SO help me what to buy and A little help with how to customise would be nice. Maybe a little tactics too??
===Richy=== Thanks in Advance
wait, they changed the FAQ? AWSOME! i didn't know that! are you sure?
anyway, it all depends on what kind of list you want to play. do you want a list with lots of assaulty stuff hitting their lines turn two? if so, genestealers with scuttlers and hormagaunts are for you. want tons of little guys? do spinegaunts and/ or termagaunts, plus some warriors and a hive tyrant to keep synapse up. Warriors and zoans got the nerf bat in the FAQ though, so watch out.
for the broodlord's retinue, i suggest keeping it small. its easier to hide behind cover and infliltrate closer that way.
if you get a carnifex (and you probably should, but again, it depends on what kind of list you want) i would give it guns, because besides the zoans (which die easily now) it's the only anti tank you've got. discounting LARGE numbers of rending attacks you can get with all genestealer lists.
Now go, and win victories in the name of the hive mind!!
but first wait for the advice of people smarter and more experianced than me!!
--Famous last words of Asmodean
You definetly need more basic troops, with just 16 gaunts your not gonna get far.
All in all I qwould advice for getting a battlefroce, that 16 more gaunts, 8 genestealer, 3 warriors and 1 carnifex to add to your army.
