Based off of Chapter Master Quest
Awaken my child and and embrace the glory that is you birt... wait wrong Hive Mind.
Welcome one and all to Hive Fleet quest. Here you will play as a newly created Hive Tyrant put in charge of a Hive Fleet. You will devour worlds, crush all that stands before you and push towards the astronomicon.
But first let's determine what your Hive Fleet is like. Roll d100 for progenitor of your fleet. Average of posts will determine the overall role.

We are of medium size. Which by other species standards are still pretty big. Our ships number in the 1,000s, enough to move the fleet around the galaxy and have some offensive ships.

It is thus decided. We are Hive Fleet Hastur. Where we go, none dare speak our name for all fear us. We are silent.
We posses a genestealer that has survived more injuries than any other genestealer. By all rights he should be dead. Yet somehow he preserves on. He is the Deep One. And he may be our greatest weapon.
You however, are new to the Hive Fleet. The last Tyrant of Hastur became trapped in a tesseract labyrinth while fighting Necrons. With no way to recover his biomass he is lost... for now. As we are knew we are a basic Hive Tyrant right now, with scything talons and lash whip/bonesword combo. However, as begets from our lineage, we can spew Bio-plasma at our foes.
The Hive Fleet is currently floating in deep space between worlds, having dropped out of FTL travel when the Tyrant died. The Hive fleet was traveling to an agriworld in the Skyrex system, seeking more biomass to increase the fleet's size.
We currently possess 400,000 units of biomass. To make creatures, we use up biomass equal to their points cost on table top. Thus an un-upgraded hormagaunt costs 6 points of biomass. Deep One costs 60 units to create.
Our fleet also posses an organism unique to it, the Plasmavore. A enhancement on the Biovore template that shoots bioplasma instead of Spore mines. They cost 55 units to create.
So Hive Tyrant what shall you do? Will you continue to the Agriworld or choose a new target? And what shall you create with your biomass?

It's a nid that can work independently of the hivemind. It's the closest thing to a spy and assassin as they've got

they reproduce by implanting genetic material into a host, who then is driven to reproduce and eventually gives birth to more genestealers this way. The genestealer method of implanting genetic material is... liberally interpreted

>> No.23091369

The Skyrex system is the closest system to us. It contains an Agri-world, a Hive World that acts as the center of government for the system, and a heavily fortified military planet filled with Guardsmen.

Based on information from the Genestealer cults in Skyrex, the agri world is the most undefended, as it is farthest from the military base planet there. It will take the Navy and Guard a long time to organize forces and reach us, giving us free reign to devour without opposition besides the PDF.
Several Guard regiments and Orbital defenses. It is the military might of the sector.

>> No.23091434


Let's take the poorly defended angriworld, and consider sending our genestealers to the hiveworld.

Depending on how much biomass we can easily gain from those two sources, we'll decide if we skip over the heavily defended military planet for greener pastures or not.

The Hive World is the seat of power of the sector. It is 50% Hive cities and 50% desert wasteland. While it is only slightly more defended than the Agri-world, your genestealers say it will be more quickly defended by the military planet than the Agri-world.

>> No.23092072

Yup. Let's do it.

As far as how we use our biomass, I'll leave that to someone who knows tyranids better than I.

Obviously we're gonna need a good portion of troops that can take on fortified positions and armor, especially considering that the IG will respond to the agriworld attack with their most mobile/flexible units (their infantry), and so we'll be facing a reduced presence of those types of enemies if our plan goes the way we expect.

Based on this idea, we should send our monstrous creatures to the hive world and use mostly genestealers, nid Warriors and the gaunts on the agriworld

Upgrade our Carnifexes with the Bioplasma unless someone has a better use for the bioplasma or the carnifexes

Zoanthropes are absolutely devestating and good armor-killers so we should probably make a healthy supply of those and send them to the hiveworld, as they'll probably have the most armor and fortified positions

some what experienced Nid player here signing on.

Since we have all of our genestealer assets on the agriworld we're looking at a potential siege for the hive world. I say we have a large chunk of termagaunts supported with tervagons to reinforce and give them adrenal glands, toxin sacks, and feel no pain. have enough of those to have a battle line. Then have a couple of of plama biovores start bombarding the hive while normal biovores surround the exits with spore mines. The population should pull back into the center of the city away from the walls. That's when we have a god awful amount of mawlocks and trigons burrow their way through the center of the hive(also creating a burrow that rippers will fan out to start devouring the lowest reaches of the hive. If we can destabilize the base of the hive and tip it over, there won't be anyone in a position to fight back while we swarm through the city. Thoughts?

>> No.23092283

Delay the attack on the argiworld. When the imperials hear that the hive world is attacked, have a huge amount of genestealer cultists "volunteer for the draft" to fight back the monsters. I'm sure we can find a delicious use for them later.

Honestly when it comes to eating the agri world we can just drop a shit load of rippers on them and then have a couple harpies with bio plasma swooping around blowing up any resistance.

>> No.23092405

As the Guard is most likely to send infantry forces to the Agri-world to defeat our cult, I think it would be best to create some lictors out of our biomass and send them there as support units.

As for the military planet, as it is a heavily defended military outpost, we should expect armor and a lot of fortification, so we should build some more Carnifexes and potentially a Hierophant or two.

For the epic success of a second 100, the Genestealer's assault goes swimmingly. The Deep One and his retinue of genestealers managed to hijack a baneblade from the Imperial Guard base, blowing up several war machines on their way to the imperial palace. They blow down the door and rampage through the building, causing havoc and destruction as they go. They reach the landing pad where the Lord Generals and high ranking members of the Guard are attempting to escape. Realizing the Baneblade has run out of ammo, the Deep One does the logical thing. He rams the Baneblade into the escape craft, causing a massive explosion. And from the flames emerges the Deep One triumphant.

The Invasion is more of a slaughter. Caught completely off guard, the humans defends are completely wiped out in a matter of weeks, with little casualties of our own. We now possess 1,500,000 units of Biomass. The worlds are nearly sucked dry of all life... when suddenly a massive warp portal appears. Out from the portal appears a fleet of ships. Chaos ships. Our old nemesis has caught up with us. The Chains of Torment Chaos legion caught up with us. They are led by Chaos Lord Ralgar the Vengeful. Long ago the Legion was part of the Iron Warriors legion when our fleet interrupted his siege of a space marine homeworld, wiping out the chapter before he had the chance to. Since then he has sworn vengeance on us, to hunt us down and wipe us out.

If these are marines from the Iron Warriors chapter, we don't want to fortify or get into any planetary fight with these guys if possible. Taking the fight to them in their cramped ships where fortifications and artillery/bombardment aren't a factor is the best strategy.

"Emphasis on artillery and mechanized warfare means that Iron Warrior forces often fare best in siege warfare and armored advances on enemy territory."

"Where possible, field fortifications will be used. Iron Warrior doctrine includes extensive use of fortifications to occupy the maximum number of opponents while using the absolute minimum number of troops."

"When an Iron Warriors force launches a planetary assault, they begin with an intense orbital bombardment"

>> No.23094667

We decide to go on the offensive, launching countless spore mines and boarding Spore pods onto the oncoming fleet. We manage to take out several ships. However more are coming and coming. He seems to have gotten some other legions to join him this time. Worse yet, Chaos forces have begun to teleport onto our planets. Daemons and Chaos Marines have begun fighting our ground forces.

>> No.23094688


I agree about assaulting them before they get a chance to set up a siege or bombard us, but when we choose which tyranid forms to attack them with it's probably worth keeping this in mind:

"n combat, Iron Warriors are terrifyingly adept at both ballistic warfare and close-range melee bloodshed, and use a mixture of the two to slaughter opponents in vast numbers. The typical Iron Warrior is armed with a powerful bolter, plasma gun or other such ranged weapon, as well as a close-combat Power Blade or chainsword."

So melee combat isn't necessarily our best choice, although our overwhelming numbers might make their close combat abilities less of a factor.

Find the next tasty system. Ideally one that has a strong-ish Imperial presence, so that we can play to our stealthy strengths, and potentially shake off the Chaos Marines.

If the chaos forces follow us, it'll hopefully incite conflict between them and the Imperials. While they're fighting, we infiltrate planets with lictors/genestealers and then begin our all-out attack on whichever side is the victor of the Chaos-Imperial conflict.

Alternatively, we stick to our primary goal and search for other Nids to gain their biomorphs - specifically toughened carapaces.

Here's my vote. We're specialists in camo and bio (aka we blast them with plama guns from point blank range) we should focus on striking hard and fast, then leaving so our opponents don't know where to focus.
I think we should focus on sucking up what biomass we can by harrying the enemy fleet with decoy fleets(aka hollowish bioships that are half stealth so the enemy had to spend a god awful amount of time fending them off.
While this happens we have genestealers sneak aboard all the fleeing civilian and military ships(from hive and military world).
We proceed to have small fleets roughly 25,000 units of biomass each go and do hit and run attack on nearby systems to draw the chaos space marines off our trail. We then retreat to deep space while we seed the asteroids in this area with a few sleeper cells of nids and bio ships (it's really really hard to see a ship that's gone dark in BFG) after the chaos marines leave to follow the decoy fleets they wake back up and go digest the remainders of the worlds before regrouping with us.

By having the genestealers sneak aboard fleeing ships they will go infest other worlds. Once they become a large enough cult they will broadcast a psychic beacon that the world is ready for harvest. We use this to help us choose the next targets for us as well.
