I'm trying to put together a brood for a tournament with a 1500 point limit. This is a horde style brood, with about 1001 points accounted for. I need help and or ideas for the last 500. First of all, this is what I have to play with (all ready built):

HQ: Brood Lord & Retinue - 210
-Brood Lord w/EC & TS
-6 Genestealers w/EC

HQ/Elite: Tyranid Warriors - 144
-3 Warriors w/EC, ES, Leaping, TS, FH
-1 VC, 2 Death Spitters
-1 Rendering Claws, 2 Scything Talons

Troops: 16x Hornagaunts - 160

Troops: 20x Termagaunts - 120

Troops: 6x Genestealers - 115
-Scuttle
-One with Feeder Tendrils

Troops: 6x Genestealers - 115
-Scuttle
-One with Feeder Tendrils

Heavy Support: 2x Biovores - 110 Max
-Typically Bio-Acid, can switch to others.

Total: In the general area of 1000 points

Generally my tactics have been putting the Broodlord near the enemy and have him sit back for synapse. In goes the Horns and Terms, followed by the Genestealers from the side. Tie everyone up and then have the stealers eat some lunch ;-). Gotta Love rendering. And I know the hate of biovores in general, but have them sit in the back and lob mines and they'll make their worth or be a tasty target.

I was thinking adding some more stealers and gaunts, possibly a few more warriors. I almost want to look at raveners, but I'm not sure.

Comments and suggestions about the next 500 will be readily accepted, and I'll even post some ideas after I get them, but I figure it never hurts to ask for help. Thanks.

Good Hunting.

Idea for the rest

Been Looking, Here's what I think for the rest:

Replace the earlier troops with:
Troops: Genestealers 184
8 stealers w/EC, scuttle

Troops: Genestealers 184
8 stealers w/EC, scuttle

Troops: Genestealers 115
6 stealers w/ scuttle, 1 Feeder Tendrils

Troops: Termagaunts 168
28 gaunts

Troops: Hornagaunts 240
24 gaunts



And Add 3 More Warriors:
Elite: Tyranid Warriors - 142
-3 Warriors w/EC, ES, Leaping, TS, FH, Scything Talons
-1 VC, 2 Death Spitters


Add it all together, and we've got about 1500 points (1498 to be exact).

you can't make this unit -- the feeder tendrils have to be on all models of a brood or none with the exception being that if the broodlord took FT his stealer retinue would'nt need to as well....

Genestealer Rule

I was looking through the codex, and I think your interpretation of the rule with the stealers may be off. Looking through the other troop sections, such as gaunts it states the following:

"They must all be equipped identically." Page 41. Yes it was referring to Hornagaunts, but it seems odd for them to say that for one group and not the other.

Not that it really matters, I'm taking the feeder tendrils out anyway ;-). And yes, I've decided to put a Venom and strangler fex in the mix. I have learned the way of the shooty fex, and I like it.
