>Imagine if a drop pod crashed through the NATO headquarters
That isn't the leadership.
But strategic usage of drop pods to directly decapitate the entire command structure, followed by bailing via teleporters or just space ships, then followed by orbital bombardment.
The bigger problem is that Marines has less tactical inertia than most planets they invade. They can do snap decisions and achieve orbital superiority. Meanwhile conventional leadership has inertia of days to weeks, and is mostly using physical space as a barrier to allow reaction. Which is why we IRL have things like buffer states: Just to give a reaction window of a week to several months.

Mawlocks turn up turn 2, every unit within 2" you roll for.
On a 1, nothing
2-3, 1 mortal wound
4-5, 1d3 mortal wounds
6, 3 mortal wounds

>Unexpected Incursion 1 cp
>When you come out of deep strike with mawlock, add 2, to any dice roll to determine the >amount of mortal wounds.
Which means a 1, is now 1 mortal wound, and 4+ is 3 mortal wounds

Devourers are great, however, you pay 8 points for double the shots on a paper strong model. While the fleshborers are 4pts. You can tunnel in a blolb of devourergaunts, shoot a but ton outta deep strike, then stratagem to fire again, and hope you kill something, you can theoretically get a metric fuckton of shots.

It pans out well as your smites are 24", and do extra mortal wounds, with a base 3+ invuln, most of my opponents usually target bigger, closer, melee units.

Malanthropes , are good to help with the paper thin army, can't recall points atm, don't own one..... Maleceptors can help reducing incoming strength of guns, with a 2 cp strategem, that lasts one turn, and otherwise is very lack luster I find.

Generally I try to overwhelm my opponent with choices, so they have to make a choice, and in the presence of overwhelming force, they usually trip up...Or leave an opening. However seasoned players know what to aim for and I get shot off the board

How are Tyranids in 8E? Specifically, I'm looking at things like meleefexes and hormagaunts. Are the new rules combined with independent movement distances doing well for them?

Or am I stuck running shootyfexes and the like?

Thanks for the advice. Is it better to start off with a horde of gaunts and gene-stealers, or a couple of big scary Monstrous creatures?

I haven't been able to read into 8E yet, but I was hoping that others would and be able to answer this:

Are Tyranids good now? I want to run a bunch of hormagaunts.
