I always like to plan early so I can have the models done. Its a few months away, yet I am totally torn on what to take... I have not played a game in almost a year too, so I am VERY rusty.

It's going to be Hi-lander style, and I loooooooooooooove playing Tyranids that way, BUT, I always feel so underpowered and tend to get frustrated with things like Grav Centurions that can smoke an MC to pieces. I am also more experienced with Tyranids, so I wouldn't be bumbling with rules as often. I wonder if a Hi-Lander format would make the Tyranid life easier. Your only alowed one unit with a D weapon, so I think that's a bonus too.

On the other hand, when I go to this event, what I am really competing for is the Best Painted/Display. While people love my Tyranids, I feel I have a more solid chance of winning it again with my Chaos, as my Chaos pieces really showcase my conversions more. There is a few folks with some stunning paint work that go to the event, and the only reason I got it last year was because he won best overall. On the downside of Chaos, I would need to hammer in a lot of games to learn the Chaos Marine side of things. I also feel I may have stronger abilities with the forces of Chaos too.

Stuck between Tyranids or CSM/Khorne Daemonkin.

Hard decision. I would vote for tyranids as i really love em.
But if you would have to decide between nids and orks, then i would go for orks....
