[2000] - Tyranids - Release the Kraken!
« on: December 7, 2017, 03:19:49 PM »
This is quite possibly the best Tyranid army list I've been able to come up with so far. Will be testing it out tonight.

I am rushing the ground with Genestealers, Devourer Gants that will receive Onslaught and Hive Commander, then shooting twice. After they get killed off I will Endless Swarm them back onto the table possibly showing up from a key strategic point where I'll keep the Lictor in.

The Hive Tyrant with wings can take down a flyer if needed or just drop in and be a distraction carnifex while the Swarmlord and Old One Eye push into the enemy lines.

Biovores are there to finish off units with mortal wounds and to obstruct movement lanes by placing spores around key targets.

Screamer Killers are hard to hit and form a second wave of hard hitting damage dealers after my troops engage.

Very interesting list.

Only thing off the top of my head I would change is to combine the Stealer squads to give you 20. That extra attack over 10 is very nice, and all the extra bodies can really help keep the unit more effective longer. To keep the Battalion, can split out 10 termies off that squad, or 15 if you wanna keep it even
So, what your saying is it's not your fault you look stupid by using words you don't get?
Flawless logic.
