Alright, after quite some time I'm trying to get myself properly back into 40k. I saw some of Forgeworld's stuff and I'm going to try use the models with some slight modifications to make them WYSIWYG. I'm not really worried about having an extremely hard list, just something that's cool and fun to paint without being horrid

Hive Tyrant
Wings
Twin-Linked Devourer with Brainleech Worms
I'm unsure on Psychic Powers, apparently Biomancy's the way to go? 245

Hive Tyrant
Wings
Twin-Linked Devourer with Brainleech Worms 245

Harpy

3 Hive Guard

4x10 Termagants with Devourers

is there anything I'm missing, is this viable?

No tervigons - troops or otherwise - overpriced MC's at 1200pts, not many numbers or any ability to get extra numbers? What do you think?

But seriously, I'm amazed by just how little GP has written. On a scale of 1 to Gorechild's Protege, this is nothing. It's like a Heavy Incinerator with which you've just rolled a 1 to wound.

All of these things just smash you unforgivingly and theres nothing you can do to stop them. Its completely stupid to take this army the way it is, you will degfinately lose every game no matter how good you are.

A Tervigon would strengthen this list a lot. I'd take one troop tervi instead of the second flyrant at this level (or just drop harpy).

And while I do like Devourer wielding Termagants, I also argue they are too expensive to buy in bulk. I reckon take one squad of 10 with Devs, and then increase your numbers by taking 60 Fleshborer-wielding Termagants instead. At least then you'd have 76 models, which is starting to get to the size you'll need to survive long enough to hold objectives using nids...

If running a Harpy I'd also like a swarm of Gargoyles, just cause it would look pretty cool!

Congratulations to Dan Gilmour, High Lord for 2013.


Due to RL time pressures (an exciting new job), I am taking a break from running Lords for at least the 2014 season. Thanks for all your great support over the years and I hope to be back for 2015. Stay tuned for a new look event tba mid winter in Sydney.

I don't know. If you'd paid attention you would've noticed that I haven't played in about 6 years. Top job welcoming people back to the hobby

Perhaps something like this

Hive Tyrant
Wings
Twin-Linked Devourer with Brainleech Worms 245

3 Hive Guard

troop Tervigon
apparently Catalyst is a good choice? 175

10 Termagants with Devourers

15 Gargoyles

18 Termagants

18 Termagants

20 Termagants

EDIT: and 1 Harpy

this bulks me out to 86 models, is this enough?

Also yes, that list is better Alex. Although i'd probably try and turn the squads of 10 and 18 into one squad of 20 with devourers, or even going hormagaunts. ######ing filthy with catalyst they are wink.gif

edit:would also be worth looking at a 2nd unit of hive guard, at 1200 most armies wont be fully meched up, but it lets you pop transports easier smile.gif

I'll try out two lists, the first one and then a more CC oriented army, say

Hive Tyrant
Wings
Twin-Linked Devourer with Brainleech Worms

3 Hive Guard

troop Tervigon
Catalyst

20 Hormagaunts

20 Hormagaunts

20 Hormagaunts

15 Gargoyles

Harpy

I imagine cats would LOVE space marines.

I can just see an Ultramarine going on a quest to find a lost cat, and coming back COVERED in cats, due to the solar heating of his armour, and the heat from the power pack.
"Oh! Mister Marine! You're back! Did you find Mittens?"
'I have found many cats, citizen. I am unsure which one responds to 'Mittens', however.'
"Um... He's white, with black paws!"
*marine reaches back, and peels a cat off his shoulderpad, holding it carefully between two massive fingers*
'Is this Mittens? It matches the description.'
*mew*
"MITTENS! YOU FOUND HIM!"
*marine nods in acknowledgement, and strides off, still covered in cats*
'Come, felines. I shall locate milk, for thy purring pleases my senses.'

It does.

But GW won't allow Nids allies, so we still have the counts as genestealer cultists thing happening like in 5th instead of the whole - hey look, now I can actually play my army with the army I was proxying with this other army wooo!

@Mephiston, your last list is illegal. You need a unit of termagants as troops to take a Troop Tervigon.

You didn't mention anything about 6 years plus.

Furthermore you joined the forums on February 8th 2010, i.e. 2.5 years or so ago. Hardly any statement saying definitively how long you've been away from the hobby for, and all evidence points to active in 5th edition at a time where it started to get fairly predictable in what most armies had to be competitive.

Top job in being a douche because you can't take feedback and suggestions well.

Hey look, multiple other people have stated you should take more then one unit of Hive Guard, have you done this? No. Great job paying attention to feedback!

Seeing as you are so put out because you haven't played since early 6th edition, follow this link to Kirby's summary of Tyranids in the 'Nidzilla' aka 'T6'R'Us' style list and the transition from 5th to 6th in terms of a competitive armylist:

Transitioning to 6th - Nidzilla

Read the article. Bam, you will have caught up considerably for your time away. Of course, you could ignore the link and just have a go because feedback doesn't agree with you, but whatever.

This thread is all kinds of weird.

To start with, Mephiston got offended by a fairly unremarkable post, and had a shot at GP for not reading the thread properly (Ok, not so weird - this is WAU afterall). Then GP returned serve, with an amazing display of self control (the longest paragraph is only 3 lines!) and Meph obviously can't hack it so now we're going to have a closed thread, and a new thread in which GP is asked not to post?
