Default Confused..

Ok heretic I need your help

I play Black Templars and have something like 2-2.5k pts, Im not sure but its enough but with GW and this hobby IT'S NEVER ENOUGH!!!!.. I also finished my armoured battlegroup (except for paint and the rulebook) so Im kind of stuck on what I should buy next..

I really want to play Tyranids and knowing that they will be getting an update next year Ive decided to just build something purely based on the models I like so Im thinking of buying either a Hive Tyrant, Trygon or 2 zoanthropes

But I also love my Templars and I feel I should buy 2 land speeders...


Help me heretics, youre my only hope!!!

I think 2500 points is probably about the time to try a new army. I'm always baffled when I see people continuing to collect armies that have gone way past the 2,500 point mark. At that size you've got enough to field various kinds of 2000 point lists, and 1000 points of options for changing a 1500 point list. I think anything you don't own by that point probably isn't worth bothering with or you would already have bought it. Maybe that's just me.

I'd go with the 'nids. They are a change from your Templars, and like you said in the eventual future they are getting updated.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I'd go the speeders, finish the force off and probably wait for Nids to come out before jumping on them. Although it might be better to stockpile a couple of boxes of Gaunts in case of a sprue recut that drives the price per mini up (like Cadians).

Neither. Buy Draigo and his awesome buddies of awesomeness...

(For the record I voted Nids, because diversity helps you understand your opponents better).

Neither. Save your money in case BT get rolled into the upcoming SM release.

'Nids. variety is the spice of death and all that stuff. plus itll give you a different thing to paint instead of armour and tanks.
