I've done some packing to my miniature collection and came across my really old Tyranids..again. They looked accusingly at me for putting them in stasis. I did an inventory of my Tyranids and made an attempt to see if i could scrounge up enought points to bring them to 1750 pointage that my gaming group is playing at.
A quick check yielded the following bug count:
1 Hive Tyrant armed with Venom Cannon and Scything Talons
2 Tyrant Guard
5 Tyranid Warriors (1 with Venom Cannon & 4 with Deathspitters) All with a set o' Scything Talons
1 Carnifex (with 2 sets of Scything Talons)
I also wanted to try if i could squeeze in all the different 'Nid minis into a 1750 list. I wanted some variety in-game.
Have come up with the following list:
Ye Olde Tyranids- The Forgotten (by me heheh!)
1 Hive Tyrant 220pts
Hive Commander, Heavy Venom Cannon, 1 set o' Scything Talons
2 Tyrant Guard 130pts
Lash whips upgrade
2 Zoanthropes 120pts
1 Lictor xxpts
30 Gants 150pts
10 Gants 50pts (these are from old starter set. I forgot the name)
27 Gaunts 162pts
9 Genestealers with Broodlord 218pts
Broodlord has Acid Blood, Implant attack and a set o' Scything Talons
10 Genestealers 140pts (old plastic blue ones)
5 Tyranid Warriors 185pts
1 Venom Cannon and 4 Deathspitters, all with a set o' Scything Talons
Bio Plasma, 2 sets o' Scything Talons, in a Mycetic Spore (Mycetic Spore bought from Taka toy fair)
2 Biovores 90pts (I look forward to painting the Spore Mines)
So that is actually 1750pts on the money :) Not too sure how this will work out in game, but i think its gonna be fun to play!
Its got all the different models in there and i don't really have to buy any new models. Well ..maybe a Broodlord, but i could just use the one from Space Hulk.
That felt good! Another complete (for now) army back into the fold lol!
Woohoo! Double posts in a day! Its been a while ;)
Comments welcome on strategies for the list.
