i will be playing this tomorrow actually. I know I'm light on troops. Meh. I'll spawn one at least probably two. And really IB in this list is not a big issue. I will be DSing a winged MC. My drool cannon/spine salvo Crone will DS in most likely. My spore mines will of course DS. I'll probably also DS in at least one or two Lictors as well (they do not scatter now). I have a lot of LS/BS and rending in the list. I need help IF I face WKs or Riptides. I'll be in tough against heavy flyer lists ( Vendettas/5 FMC daemons/Stormwing, etc.) but you cannot build for everything with Nids. The fact that i get -1 LD and -D# LD to a character is quite a nice bonus too. In the old dex that formation would have been illegal and 75 points more expensive. Lictors have a place.
