Two test games in, feels like Tyranid assault is dead in the water. But Tyranid shooting on the other hand is improved. -_- i like shooty nids but sucks when I need to decline challenges cuz my guys can't take on characters from enemy armies. This is a revision of my first 'test' list which had more assault elements in it, switched those out for more shooting. So anyone else play testing their nids to figure out the best way to 'evolve' their army?

I find that the lack of flesh hooks on the key assault units seals the deal on assault. The high initiative gets shitted on by enemies hiding in terrain.

Tyrannofexes are quite nice now.

Electroshock Grubs is awesome!


My original list had more upgrades on the walk tyrants Indescribable Horror; Old Adversary which were largely useless.
Aswell as another 10 man unit of genestealers with toxin sacs, which like the rest of the stealers got stuck striking at i1 thanks to terrain.
Also had adrenal glands on the tyrannofexes which proved useful in getting them to the enemy faster to use the flamers thanks to fleet but i feel like maybe it is not absolutely necessary tho it was nice.
