You're probably about 2 hours away from me then, unless you live in between Lex and Louisville.

There any good groups up that way?

Exocrine - Range and BS and some other factors make this an unreliable model at the cost. 6 Plasma shots sounds really good until you realize most turns you're going to be missing with half of them. Still, it's not terrible, you just wish it had a way to get a higher S than 7 on the alternate mode.

Tyrannofex - Basically better, but still an underwhelming unit. Hey look a 2+ save!

Heavy Support Summary - Kinda meh, but maybe the best FOC area? Maybe? There's some potential for various lists in using exocrines, maybe tfexes, carnifexes and biovores. None of them are great units, however. You might actually spend like 50 or 100 bucks getting this up to speed, I guess?

So as a whole what we have is a codex that basically does what the last one does, but does it less well. The psychic powers were all nerfed, most of the good units were nerfed, the units they tried to make into the "new hotness" are not actually the new hotness at all.

IF you're an extant Tyranid player, the nice thing is your investment to make the best reasonably decent list is probably going to be pretty light. In terms of using the rules to sell more models to existing customers (their primary sales model), this looks like a substantial failure on Games Workshop's part. Even players who find ways to be decently good with Nids aren't going to really need to buy many new models to do so. So I guess that's kind of a plus.

We have a 100. Auto win!
The attack goes so incredibly well, the slaughter will be infamous in Tau history. Tau ships dies in droves to the attack, and even the drones we send out in practical suicide charges come back alive and well, while the Tau drop like flies. Our Broadsides melt away at the Tau Hulls, sucking many of their crews into the cold reaches of space. Our Razorfieds tear their shields asunder and our Hive Ships finish the job. The Tau fleet lies in ruin, only the Flagship still remaining, attempting to escape as it is swarmed with drones. However as our more valuable ships pulled back, the shots from nowhere returned and began opening fire on our main fleet.

A fine idea. After all, the only reason that attack creased was due to the shear multitude of ships emerging from the warp. What shall we have aboard the boarding pods?

Avergae = 3.
We are a splinter Fleet. While we can't exactly crush everything in our path, we are a huge threat and can grow ever larger. Just make sure to avoid lark Imperial Fleets.
Next roll a d10 for size. Also please reply to the post you are rolling for so I don't mix up ones from past rolls.

While I have always wanted to try BFG I don't think anyone at my FLG store plays it and I don't think my friends want to be dragged into another game only a year after I got them into 40k.

Fools! As you bicker and fight my Hive Fleets draw ever closer. All shall be devoured... except the Necrons and Daemons. The Former gets to hang out in a dead galaxy and the latter you guys can just stay in the warp for all I care.
