In anticipation of the new Tyranid wave, I'm gonna get a HiveTyrant/Swarmlord kit.

Since I already have a Forgeworld Hive Tyrant, I plan to make it as my Flyrant by using the wings from the kit.

Next I will make a Swarmlord. I always like the fluff on him among all the Nids special characters.

Is a waste not to play such beautiful (Flyrant) and cool (Swarmlord) models. Therefore I have changed my list to have both.

HQ
- Swarmlord
- 2 Tyrant Guard - Lashwhips
- Hive Tyrant - Wings, Old Adversary, Hive Commander, Bonesword & Lashwhip

ELITES
- 2 Hive Guards
- 2 Hive Guards

TROOPS
- Tervigon - Catalyst
- 10 Termagants

HEAVY SUPPORTS
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands

Total: 1750pts


This army has +2 to reserve roll. I can put everything in reserve and 2nd turn 2+ to come in. Smile
Hive Tyrant and Swarmlord will support each other. Tervigon can re-roll outflank targeting the weakest side of the opponent.
What do you all think? Smile

I would say, weak against space wolves or dark eldar or anything that can overrun you. Considering your two hqs and hiveguards are going to be deployed on turn 1 or you want to put them in reserve, they will pick those out first. Second, you would have a hard time be reaching units inside terrain. Maybe you should add a tervigon to get more guns.

I kinda know how your list works, it just needs more range power and the small ones.

thanks for the thought and i do agree on the bad matchup against DE and SW.
then again, we are talking about nids here. they are the underdogs! lol. why so serious? if can win against them would be a bonus. haha!

my original list had 2 tervigons, they are not scary and just creating nuinsance to ppl. not to mention if the game is KP, is a bit waste of the points taking 2nd tervigon.
this is not from theory but from actual many play testing with them.

apologies for writing too much. It's a norm for me and I'm not being serious, just formally giving an opinion, unless you just want me to go 'your tyranids' pew pew not enough, more onomnom of doooom~~' I'd be fine with that too.

Jokes aside, so you've play tested the second list? I'm curious as to the result because my original plan was similar.

hahaha.. sure.

i just gave my list some thought and to further improve the list capabilities, i'm swapping out a Trygon for a brood of 7 Genestealers lead by a Broodlord.
Since I'll only need to come in on 2+ and able to re-roll my Outflank, why not take full advantage of it by playing Genestealers right? Furthermore, they are TROOP choice. Smile

HQ
- Swarmlord
- 2 Tyrant Guard - Lashwhips

ELITES

- 2 Hive Guards

TROOPS

- 10 Termagants
- 7 Genestealers - Toxic Sacs with Broodlord - Toxic Sacs, Implant Attack, Scything Talons

HEAVY SUPPORTS

That list looks more deadly compared to the one before. Should try it out.

I had a game with this latest list yesterday at Forge.

HQ
- Swarmlord
- 2 Tyrant Guard - Lashwhips
- Hive Tyrant - Wings, Old Adversary, Hive Commander, Bonesword & Lashwhip

ELITES
- 2 Hive Guards
- 2 Hive Guards

TROOPS
- Tervigon - Catalyst, Toxic Sacs, Scything Talons
- 10 Termagants
- 7 Genestealers - Toxic Sacs with Broodlord - Toxic Sacs, Implant Attack, Scything Talons

HEAVY SUPPORTS
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands

Total: 1749pts


1st game was against Alvin's Death Company army.
Mission: Capture and Control
Highlights:
- Despite 2+ to come in, 1 Trygon and 1 Hive Guard unit were both not in. Trygon went down first on the following turn.
- Alvin's army was separated into half as he sent 1 stormraven with its cargo attacking my swarmlord, flyrant, tervigon side. His other stormraven on his other side got greedy and was using its missiles to shoot the first trygon, so didn't move much.
- I then got lucky with my Hive Guards shot down his shooting stormraven, causing his cargo to footslog.
- I further delay his reinforcement by sending a sacrificial Hive Guard baiting them to move away from my main force.
- 2nd trygon came out and was easily took down by his 1st stormraven's cargo.
- But I had Flyrant, Swarmlord and 11 Termagants assaulting them. I first cast paroxysm on the death company. Then my Swarmlord grant furious charge on the Termagants which has Poison Attack from a nearby Tervigon. My flyrant itself has Old Adversary which grants Preferred Enemy within 6" to my units. Cool synergy right? The Death Company was wiped out.
- Win for the Nids! Smile


Thoughts on the list:
- Thinking of changing the Hive Guards to a unit of 3 Zoans on a pod for better tank hunting.

yea, the termagants were like supergants.
they all have re-roll to hit with Preferred Enemy. Then re-roll to wound at S4 poison attacks. (due to Furious Charge)
