Nah. Defiantly nids, because she just needs twelve other people with her work ethic and ability to run everything.

Wow you guys really need to learn how to write a Tyranid list... everyone seems to complain that they suck... My friend has won multiple international tournaments with them.... you just need to know how to write an effective/balanced list and have solid tactics on the table.

Usually Flyrant, 2 tervigons, 2 Units of 3 naked Carnifae, Boivores, units of Shrikes and a Trygon, deployed, not deep striked.

Why is it so hard to believe that Nids aren't capable of winning tourneys?

Looks like the seeds of doubt have been sewn deep.... I blame those fleshlings...

seriously though Nids are hard as fuck, you just got to know how to build an EFFECTIVE and BALANCED list, capable of dealing with any problems, and multiple different opponents.

Ron Swanson would play a straightforward IG army, and every one of his models would have facial hair.

I don't know; you can't really get much more in the way of 'big government' than the Imperium of Man.

You know, this doesn't sound like a half bad idea.

It'll still involve researching a good forty, fifty or so historical ladies of significance and working out what specific features, items or iconography to convert up for them to covey who they are.

The idea here is that every Sister is converted to resemble a female icon of real life.

Squats were Squatted because they already had Space Wolves.

Face it, Swanson would be a Wolf player. Distrustful of government, autonomous, prizing personal liberty but not at the expense of others, drinking good alcohol and eating big steaks, highly individualized craftsmanship going into their gear.

He's a Wolf player through and through.

With Nids, its all about closing the gap. Once your in combat, its playtime.

i played against a friend's 1500p nid list with my shitty gk/sm list and won by 1-2 objectives. he got 2 flyrants, 2 fexes, buff as fuck trygon prime and then some supporting units including a tervigon and zoanthropes. i feel like if you can shoot down the most immediate mc threats and preserve your troops the rest of the nid army can't do shit. but it was an enjoyable game for us both which is good.

so its kinda the same as before for nids

But he forgot the ways of the graceful giant of the space seas, the tervigon.

Man, I hope they introduce the equivalent of the tervigon for hormagants, since they're the melee analogue. It shall be called the hurrvigon.

There is a dataslate which lets you take an out of FOC 2 harpies 1 hive crone 1 flyrant and 3 broods of gargoyles with without number and auto scoring. If you take that with two HQ flyrants and 3 FA crones you can have 9 FMCs in the air on turn 1. Otherwise no nids can't win for shit.

>you can have 9 FMCs in the air on turn 1

How many points value are we talking?

Since if its 2000 or more, you can just take a double force org.

Ah, the Skyblight Swarm -- 805 points of rape (at minimum) with four FMC included.

If you leave the gargs at 10 per brood and just take the min 2 10 model broods of gaunts you come in at exactly 1850.

What could be fun is a stylised Sabbat helm that's decorated like an angry saint or (Ecclesiarchy approved) mythical beast of some kind. The Death of Antagonis describes a Canoness who has a very ornate Sabbat helm designed to resemble a gorgon.

Mediocre at best.
His Ork codex was deeply flawed, Tyranids (4th Edition) only seems good looking at it from now. The 3e one was better. Space Wolves (5th) was OP and poorly balanced,
Codex: Dark Eldar (5th) was good, Chaos Space Marines (6th) was shitty work. Chaos Daemons (6th) is everything wrong with 6th and Eldar (6th) is Crud level dependent of a handful of units and has many unplayable units.

>and Eldar (6th) is Crud level dependent of a handful of units and has many unplayable units
You don't play eldar, do you?

>> No.31383749

I think what he means to say is that due to certain units being really really good - case in point wave serpents - it invalidates a lot of the other choices. The codex itself has very little in way of true stinkers though some of the units are in a weird place - harlequins and phoenix lords, I'm looking at you.
