Too bad your anti-tank capabilities in that list are practically nil.

Re: Whats your Hive Fleet called?

Hive Fleet Echidna, greek mythology, the mother of all monsters. With a lot of tervigons (who I name Scylla and Charybdis) and monstrous creatures I thought it was apt.

Re: My 1500/2000 point list...

Remember, than zoanthropes do have bs of 3, meaning they arent always going to hit. I suggest getting a second zoanthrope so it is more likely to hit, and almost guaranteed to penetrate anything (except a necron monolith). That was in the old one, they have BS4 now, but they still have to pass a ps...

Re: Tyrannofex vs Carnifex ....

Not all zoanthropes need to be podded. With the lance ability you don't need to aim for rear unless you want overkill. Psychic defenses can be a minus, but the amount you can bring in comparison to that single Tyrannofex outweighs the odds of them being shut down. Also, another benefit of walking t...

Re: Hive guard

I'm sure Mattman will correct me, but I do believe the only time your opponent will get a cover save is if their unit is actually inside or touching area terrain. Just because the terrain is between the two units does not give them an automatic cover save. Noc Exactly, which is great because it als...

Re: New nid list 2000 nid 1.1

Also the tervigon shouldn't be given toxin sacs. Since its already str 5 (6 on the charge since you gave him glands) it gets to be rather useless against anything with toughness <5. Not to mention, he only has str 6 on the charge, if he gets charged then he only has str 5 and the toxin sacs are mor...

Re: How to use tervigons?

Its also worth while putting adrenal glands and toxin sacs on it, unlike your other monstrous creatures the tervigon only has strength 5, so the toxin sacs are worth it, with the added effect that it then gives the bonuses of these to all the surrounding termagaunts, no to mention giving your termag...

Re: Nid Prime

A quick thing about the battleforce, there are 3 warriors in the set, if you do convert him to use as HQ (which is a good choice), if you want to have a warrior squad you'll need more warriors since the minimum is 3 and you'd only have 2 left.

Re: Deep Strike anyone?

I didn't actually mean putting the genestealers in the spores, must have written that badly, I meant outflank with them, its the best thing to do with genestealers, so I always assume people know that when I say use genestealers :oops:

Re: 8th ed bloodier?

The force organisation slots are taken away and the bare minimum to play is 3 units, not troops, so you can play with just one massive block of troops combining all the troops you're currently playing with.

Re: Deep Strike anyone?

I've also done some theory for lists like this, and they always seem like fun, especially if you ever do planetstrike. The only thing I would pick at is the hormogaunts in the mycetic spore, in a normal game they would deep strike, emerge, run and then... nothing, they can't assault, and if you can'...

Re: Tyranid vs Space Wolves, really need some help!

lots of fast hordes protected by venomthropes and/ or tervigon's FNP power, making his templates a lot less effective and giving you a chance to get into combat. Give your guys toxin sacs, if you have termigaunts then giving any tervigons toxin sacs and adrenal glands is a cheap way of making all yo...

Re: 2,000 Balanced

It is a good list, lots of killy stuff. Hormogaunts, with a Catalyst Tervigon to back them up are a great meatshield, if you put them in cover or get a venomthrope and they can survive a lot. For instance in my game against space wolves, against two squads worth of bolter fire, plasma guns and a thi...
