Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I've just recently started collecting Tyranid army.
I currently have 2 Battleforce box, 3 Zoanthrope, 1 Lictor, 1 Hive Tyrant, and the Tyranid models from the Battle of Macaragge box... as well as the Tyranid bits including a Wing for my Tyrant.
I am wondering, which model should I pick up next? I need some suggestion please :x I have zero clue.
I also made a 1200 point army list from the models that I currently have -- here
Thanks alot in advance! :yes:
So you have
1 winged tyrant
3 ripper bases?
This is a pretty good start. The only thing I could suggest is a Broodlord or Tyrant & Guards. I have posted some comments in your army list.
A few more gaunt boxes couldn't hurt, either. Gotta love swarms and swarms of fodder.
like poptartsninja said, you can never have to many guants (i'm still getting some more guants and homries and gaunts combined i got like 70:tongue: )
hive fleet of tyranids-2000pts
bad moonz orks-1500ptz
Orcs clan Red 'Eads-1000pts
For me it would be a broodlord and extra stealers for his ret. I prefare a stealer heavy army than a gaunt heavy one. The definatly get an extra lictor or two to back up the one you already have. And extra Fex's cant hurt! Finally Id add 3-6 Raveners and a brood of 8-16 gargoyles for experimentation!
Broodlord, another box of gaunts, raveners.. :ninja:
That's alot of stuff to get, but I love the Raveners.. I've had it proxy against a friend and it worked out marvelously.
I think you should concentrate on having some more tactical flexibility. You really are lacking ant fast attack and fast attack is very good. Raveners would be good. Give them rending claws as well. You could also try some winged Tyranid warriors to support your winged Tyrant.
As for what to buy next... I think you have plenty to make a 1500 point list... let's see... yeah, you might even get 2000 out of that. I think that next, assuming it's all put together and painted (and primed models don't count!) (I hate playing against spraypainted armies) you should go out and play some games. Learn about your army, what units you like, etc. Then in six months from now, you can buy some more stuff.
Really, what units don't you already have? Broodlord, raveners, gargoyles... isn't that all that's left? Oh yeah, biovores :x But my advice is, don't get anything else until you play some games. Then you can decide for yourself what else you need.
Tyranids: 2500 pts
Imperial Guard: 1000 pts
Witch Hunters: 1000 pts
And, no, I dont work for GW... though I think it maybe a good career if you ever get to work in the headquarter. (doing something you enjoy while earning money is never a bad thing)
*slipping off subject* Okami, japanese for forest child right? Anyway, cool sig pic, i like alot and wanna know what its from or if youve drawn it yourself! *Swift boot back onto subject*
I bought 1 battle box, 1 fex, 2 thropes, a broodlord and the macragge boxset and bought cheap models from ebay (16Gaunts 16stealers and a tyrant) And I struggle to fit them into a 2000points list! Looking at your list your fairly similar to what i have, id be surprised when you add up your biomorphs and models if you can keep it under 1500!
