Rangrok1k's Guide to the Tyranid Swarm

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Sadly as soon as 6th comes out this whole guide will likely need to be rewritten.

A lot of what Rangrok1k has said about these different units holds true. Tactics will be changed in part, but I think all it's lacking is the fact that the new reserves/assaulting/shooting rules have been changed.

Short answer: Now we test play and see how much things have changed.

It think things have changed a lot for the nids actually. Also if the rumor is true and forgeworld is being brought into the regular 40k game, that will definitely change a few things.

As of now, I actually don't have a 6th ed rulebook, which is why I'm far less active than normal on the forums. I'm probably going to be taking a break from 40k for a while as well (I got some friends who want to finish a Dungeons and Dragons campaign actually). I might consider rewriting this for 6th edition, but it would take a while.

1st off, monsters with 2 Twin Devourers with Brain Leech Worms

very effective against those armour 12 and below vehicles ;)

harpies actually have a use

and Death Leaper and lictors might actually be useful now

It'll be a new topic. I'll likely stick to the same format so Rangrok1k and I can both put it together.
