We have 2 armies: Tyranids and Necrons. Our question is this:

What can a swarm look like ? Should they be all together with weaker ones up front and stronger in the back ? Should they be the strong ones in the centre, surrounded by weaker ones ? Does it make any difference ?

The reason for asking is our concern for 'flanking'. We've read our rule book and the definition of what a 'swarm' looks like and/or should be structured is not there. this would help in our battles - of course this question applies to the Tyranid army.

Thanks in advance for any advice on 'swarms' : :a

Tough one. You want to form your swarm so that the parts of it make contact with the enemy at the most advantageous point. What's the most advantageous depends on your goal. You might have the weak ones make contact first to tie up the enemy's strong units so you can charge in with your tough guys. In that case, the weakest would be out front. You might also want the weak ones to shield some of your tough guys from incoming fire while moving across the board, again weak ones first. However, as you move closer, you might want your tough guys to engage the enemy first since the weak ones will get destroyed by certain tough enemies with no gain. That means the tough guys move to the front as they close. A good all around option is put the cannon fodder in front as shields, once you're close, charge the tough guys out from the ranks of the weak ones to engage the enemy.

swarms are multiple models an a 40mm base but if your talking a bout army formation than it doesnt matter cause your opponent will shoot the medium size or larger ones
