    this is a challenge i came up with while fighting at my local store. where i live i have fought almost all armies in most challenges.

    but sadly you can't win them all. so i thought why not have the nids players try to come up with the ultimate list to kill all opponents. so know the mans' night mare will be tangible in all places 40k is played. ill try most lists but try to keep them short and to the point to save time.

    try your lists an ideas until we get the ultimate fleet here!!!!!!!! :wacko: :ph34r: :a

    this would only work, if all your enemies also play an army for fighting all different races. it's basically impossible to design a perfect list, because if you "allround" and your enemy doesn't, you're practically dead already

    Ermm....

    Seeding Swarm count?

    HQ
    Tyrant w/Fleshborer, Scything Talons

    Troops
    Termagants, Hive Node

    Fast Attack
    Gargoyles

    Heavy
    3x12 Genestealers Without Number

    Deep Strike and start shooting about . You get 3 S7 shots with the Tyrant which you should be aiming at transport/vehicle side armour. Really the winning unit is Genestealers without number .

    From what my local DJ Hobby shop believes,a full genestealer army is brilliant..at the GW shop they like ripper swarms and I'd have to agree...think about it


    3 Venom Warriors= 132
    Venom sacs, Enhanced senses, E C, S T, Venomcannon

    5 x 10 scythe swarms=790 pts
    Leaping, 3 rending claws mutants

    2X4 Ripper swarms=80 pts
    --------
    = 1002 points

    45 S3 rending attacks
    129 S3 ripper attacks
    6 S7 shots
    ---
    177 attacks in a turn, not counting charge bonuses and the like from 60 models
    it follows the army list with 1 HQ and a grand total of 6 troops choices and you have 3 species
    though you may have to use proxies..because few people have that many ripper bases..but I'm probably wrong.. Or you could go with 1750 points and have 100 scythe swarms and your 3 warriors with room for maybe 3-4 regular ripper bases

    Edit:Too tired to edit my speach... there..2 troops, 5 F/A, 1 HQ/Elite
    an army

    Leaping Rippers aren't Troops anymore...

    oh...well you can't blame a guy with being off at 3 A/M...I'd change it now...but all my thought is being directed to staying awake, and learning the seeding swarm rules so I can try one out in oh..say 5 hours from now when it finally reaches 11...
    I should have gotten C/A sooner..I like the seeding swarm..the idea of genestealers without number is just too cool

    finally tried them. got sluaghtered by the dam ord heavy guard. :o but hen after the first turn i got into cc :lol: . completely mutilated his guards men into icor and goo staining the field. i think i most have killed four whole swquads with the first wave . the termies then had to run further because i killed all the closest guardsmen . but in the end he inflictated tank shock and i failed and ran. but overall i guess its the greatest cc army ever. i lost but by two points for his tank i almost killed. i inflicted four penetrating from rending but he got all 123 rolls. :blink:
