Nice win for the Nids. Though I would say anything that wants to fight nids head on in CC will be suicidal because it brings out the full potential of the army Smile

Undoubtedly, means my list might just work. Very Happy

@jake, actually reading the BR above proves strategy plays a big part too. Taking on two DC units at once IS suicidal, even for Nids.

Joe had to divide them up in order to assure victory Very Happy

Yes, the strategy is called divide and conquer. In order to do that you need to know your enemy's strengths and sacrifice some units to bait/draw them to split their force.

Anyway Dann, your genestealers always can't kill and always die wan. Maybe they just hate me. Sad

My 2nd game vs the space marines concluded that i have problem vs AV armies.
He had 1 land raider redeemer, 2 razorbacks and 2 rhinos. Only 5 AVs and I had a hard time. If it wasn't for his mistake not able to take down the trygons, I would not be able to take down the land raider.

With that in mind, i've decided to move away an all 2+ reserve army to have a hybrid of both below:


HQ
- Swarmlord
- 1 Tyrant Guard - Lashwhips

ELITES
- 3 Hive Guards
- 2 Zoanthropes with Myceptic Spore

TROOPS
- Tervigon - Catalyst
- 10 Termagants
- 7 Genestealers - Toxic Sacs with Broodlord - Toxic Sacs & Scything Talons

HEAVY SUPPORTS
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands
- Trygon - Adrenaline Glands
- Tyrannofex - Rupture Cannon, Cluster Spines, Dessicator Larvae

Total: 1749pts



So I'll have Swarmlord, Tervigon, Tyrannofex and Hive Guard deployed. The rest will deepstrike/outflank.
This list should be able to handle most AV lists out there.
Now i have a dilemma. Instead of the Swarmlord with a Tyrant Guard, should i just get a normal Hive Tyrant with 2+ armour and Old Adversary (Preferred Enemy) for more survivability and support? Or should I just get a Flyrant, freeing up the points for a Tyrant Guard for 3rd Zoanthrope?

Options are as below:
- Swarmlord with a lash Tyrant Guard = 345pts
- Hive Tyrant (Hive Commander, Old Adversary, Armored Shell, TL Devourer) with a lash Tyrant Guard = 340pts
- Flyrant (Hive Commander, Old Adversary) and 1 more Zoanthrope = 340pts

What do you guys think? Which option complement my list?

Tested the army vs Subahan last Friday. Though the Tervigons have 3 biomancy spells but since they are psyker level 1, I can only cast 1. So is a bit wasted. The only master level 2 is swarmlord. And fielding him does help the army. 2nd turn 2+ to arrive for my Dooom of Malan'tai. Sounds awesome to me! Smile

With Swarmlord, something have to go. 1 Tervigon have to go. The question is should the Flyrant or 1 Trygon go. I needed some air defense so thought to keep the Flyrant. So decided to remove 1 Trygon and 1 Tervigon. Additional points used to increase the size of the Hive Guard units.

Below is the updated list to test out. Smile

HQ
Swarmlord (3 Biomancy, 1 Telepathy)
2 Tyrant Guards
- Lash Whips

Hive Tyrant (2 Biomancy)
- Wings
- 2 x TL Devourer

ELITE
Doom of Malan'tai
- Spore Pod

3 Hive Guards

3 Hive Guards

TROOP
1 Tervigon (2 Biomancy)
- Cluster Spines
- Scything Talons

10 Termagants

HEAVY SUPPORT
1 Trygon
- Toxin Sacs

1 Trygon
- Toxin Sacs


Total: 1750 points
