The new 40k is out, indexes for every army all over and what do we meanwhile as we wait for Tyranids getting a new codex at some day?

What makes me wonder most is there here is no response at all. Are you guys still in interstellar hibernation?

Time to wake up and rustling up the spawn vats.


I must admit, I had not played a game yet and mostlikely I won't be able to before August. But my Nids hunger for new biomass and I quite like the new rule setting. On a few things is it still a bit odd. The idea of vehicles behaving like any other models is... a two edged blade.
I see the benefit from esier rules, but with such mass of LP to take down simple vehicles is no loger as interesting as before. A slight tweak would been nice. At least fliers do get that...

And we nids? We can finally embrace our genestealer children and grandchildren of the cults in true niddy ways. Even with help from human prey...

Since no one here shared some XP with us, it looks like we need to muster other hive fleet agents and look what I have found:

I had a few 750 pts games against IG. Lost both (We just wanted to try the new rules). Even though he couldn't get through my Tervigon 20 termagants blop of unbreakable rock in the first game. The second game he was extremely lucky with rolls. Took initiative, shot my 10 gargs with 1 squad of 10 tempestus and downed my flying Hive Tyrant at turn 1. That hurt quite much.

IG got some serious firepower and their orders just seem insane at the moment.

Also, the new LOS rules are rather silly. "Hey, I can see the tip of that sword on your unit. My tank fires at it and breaks it".

I do like how things run a lot more fluent now. I like the easy psychic fase. Also, I do like the change to tanks and monsters. They can be killed by a lot of infantry, but it will be hard. A lascannon hurts big stuff like hell, but feels like a total waste on infantry units. I like that change a lot.

Something that's VERY interesting, given the new rules, is that Venomthropes have the "Fly" Keyword. That makes them very, very interesting, tactics-wise.

@Teodo

I assume to make things even less complex as it is now already, they added these LOS-rules to ensure hiding is so hard that you can always shoot on something.

I've been finding it hard to pull away from playing Malifaux to get back into the 40k feel... even though one of my Tau friends bought all the new books, so I can play, but haven't the desire to yet.

Also, with the system wide "hit and run" rule (fall back I think it's called), the whole purpose behind my 150 hormagaunt army getting dug into melee becomes epically useless. When/If I do dive back in, it's gonna be a lot of games to try to learn a whole new strategy of playing.

For all the streamlining the intricacies of assault and judging what is within 1" of the assaulted unit is probably open to debate and frustration. Think about all our clawed hordes - Hormagaunts tipping over, genestealers with claws holding each other at bay and preventing you positioning them as close you can so not all the bordd get within that 1"+1" of a model. It's far from streamlined and then you'll have your opponents saying some aren't in because those stealer will just wreck pretty much anything with weight of numbers...

I've managed to get four games in with the new edition, so far. A couple of the tips I've picked up, first don't hang your characters and Monstrous Creatures out to dry. While resilient, they are not invincible. Second, we are fast. I played Tau the other night and was surprised how quickly I got across the table into him. Third, don't underestimate how important an advantage synapse is for us. Being in synapse range can mean the difference between a horde evaporating and wiping out another enemy squad.

Take a peek at this Gallery.

One of the things that other armies cannot do is deal enough damage to the number of bodies we can throw at them!
'Nids are Fast, Real FAST! We also don't eat ourselves if we lose combat now!
Instinctive Behavior isn't all that dangerous to us now, but Synapse is still important!

I have played several games and had great fun using trygons to pop large chunks of my army up behind the enemy. Beats the heck out of trying to bring a genestealer swarm across the battle field under heavy fire. Nothing says "shoot me first" like a swarm of genestealers.
