I would like to be apart of this.
We seem to be in shortage of rippers... (My dream is to be a Carnifex, Swarmlord! Though, sadly, there is no longer a Carni position...)

Well, beyond this thread having been dead for a long time, you need to have at least 100 posts to be a part of the Evolutionary Chain.

I might as well sign up too, since I'm here almost every day, and putting my biofleet up to date has left me with loads of WIP-pics to throw around. I'm not going to write any battle reps, but I will be doing some more tutorials. I've already made the capillary tower tutorial, and the bonesword tutorial is on its way. Many of my WIP threads have a tendency to turn into tutorials too. :D

Guestion: Is it preferrable to post tyranid related tutorials and such here on the tyranid board, or the modelling and convertion board or is it ok to post them on both?

I've never been part of a CoC, but I'll give it a try. I've been on this board for several years, and now I'm checking (and posting) in this forum all the time. I've almost abandoned my other armies since I starting playing Tyranids. Go figure. Anyways, sign me up!

Okay, everyone. Let's see if we can breathe some life into this corpse of a thread!

I have five points of business that I would like to submit to the Evolutionary Chain for discussion:

1. In order to make the Evolutionary Chain more accessable to newer members of 40KO, I move that the minimum post count be lowered to at most 50 posts, possibly even 40 posts.

2. Hive Fleet Bahamut, should he desire it, should be inducted and promoted to Termagant/Hormagaunt for his many contributions to the Tyranid Tactica.

3. Gornon, should he desire it, should be inducted and promoted to Termagant/Hormagaunt for his contributions to the Tyranid Tactica.

4. As unkosher as it is, I would also like to suggest that someone other than me submit that I should be promoted to Genestealer for my own work on the Tyranid Tactica.

5. Finally, we should allow everyone who has posted here to become a Ripper, and a general examination of all Ripper's posts and contributions to the site should be made to determine if anyone is ready for promotion. Perhaps our Termagant, FifthWind, could let us know what the status of the Big list of Army Lists has been getting many contributions?

While it hasn't seen much activity in a while (no new posts since September), the contributors as of this post look like this:

Zilverscale: 2 lists contributed
Crafty: 3 lists contributed
SpadeS: 1 list contribued
Pershore: 1 list contributed
nerzuhl: 3 lists contributed
haunt: 1 list contributed
FifthWind: 1 list contributed
Raktra: 1 list contributed
Master Titan BT: 1 list contributed
MagicJuggler: 1 list contributed

Exactly how many of the above are still active, however, I am not sure (though I can take a pretty good guess).

Assimilation into the Hive Mind?  Yes please. MORE DNA input= MORE Combat potential.  As for the hormie/termie recomendation that would be excellent.  I enjoy taking part of the community and plan to continue to contribute.  (I want to get some pics up but not until my army is more thoroughly painted.)

I thank you Gale for the recommendation, and hope that it is not solely felt.  As for the 100 required posts, I have not reached that amount.  That aside, I hope to continue to be a part of this scene. 

As for evolution, it is what us Tyranids do best.  That and eat..

I would be very interested in being part of this. I'll admit I'm probably newer to 'Nids than most here, but I have experience in the game and I'd consider myself a fine painter.

Seeing as I finally past the 100 posts requirement, I would like to request that suggestion to jump up to Hormagaunt from GaleRazorWind.  There are still several tactics that I haven't seen with any of my input on, but that might just be because they were either similar or combined with the other posters input.  (Even though some are still blank, I just assume that people are busy and not everything is done.)  Regardless though I have met all the requirements to get into the Chain, and hopefully will jump up to gaunt from the ripper status initially given.  Although I had a period of downtime on the net, I have recently started posting again and hope to continue our galactic conquest..  Nom Nom Nom..

Despite I not have reached 100 posts yet, I'm most active in this forum than the other forums of 40KO. :)
