Trying to abuse the dataslate.
« on: January 27, 2014, 01:07:30 PM »

1750 Swarm List

Tyranid Prime, Rending Claws, Devourer, Scything Talons, The Norn Crown 170
Tyranid Prime, Maw-claws of Thyrax, Devourer, Scything Talons 135

Venomthrope 45
Zoanthrope 50
Zoanthrope 50

15 Termagants 60
20 Termagants 80
30 Termagants 120
Tervigon, Electrostatic Grubs 205

2x Hive Crone 310

Hive fleet Leviathan Vanguard Gargoyle Bio-Bomb Formation 450
3x  20 Gargoyle Broods (120 each)
3x 6 Spore Mine Clusters (30 each)

Bastion 75

I'm loving the idea of 8 FA slots to work with. Also having 150 models charging the opponent has to be a bit frightening to say the least. It has AI, AT and AA all buit in as well. As long as the Synapse holds (and those Primes have plenty of ablative wounds) and we roll catalyst (hopefully) it should be fine all game. We will see. Now the big trick here is the bastion.You want to place it mid table with a venomthrope in it and a Zoan and a venomthrope behind it and have your list move up with great coverage and protection.

I don't have the data slate and this may answer these questions, but:

1) Buildings you buy have to be in your own deployment zone - not mid table.

2) How would the venomthrope infiltrate into it?
Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should.

actually fortifications have to be in your half of the table so thats perfectly legal.

I play a power armour swarm so wouldnt be too fazed (80+ marines against that) but would work well on the unexpecting
Slaanesh Deamons = 2000pts

Wood Elves=6000pts
Slaanesh Deamons = 3000pts
High Elves 3000pts

Possibily this. An expansion set, 1 of 3, for the new codex.
