Can anyone point me to a good book?
« on: May 12, 2013, 08:49:41 PM »
Lately, what with starting a Tyranid army, I've been wondering if there were any good books that prominently feature the nids. I'm not expecting any written from their perspective as even the codex fluff bits are all written from someone else's really. But I am hoping some of you can point me to some good ones (at least one?) that revolve around a conflict with them.

A more recent one is The Greater Good, stay with me, where it's Commissar Cain versus a Tyranid invasion. It sounds Tau but the Tau are a third party more than not.

You're mostly looking at the Cain series if you want good Tyranid stories. For The Emperor revolves around a genestealer cult, Duty Calls is about a 'nid invasion, and The Last Ditch also features 'nids.

From other authors, we also have Warriors of Ultramar (though YMMV as Graham McNeill is a bit of a love-him-or-hate-him author).

I would mention Desert Raiders, but you specifically said "good books" :P

Helion Rain was awesome for me. Brutal.

Try Heart of Rage too. It's gort mechanicus thrown into the mix. Not sure if that's your thing.

I think they might only be available as audio books.
