Default "Minions" Tyranid 1500pts army

"Minions" 1500 pts
2 HQ, 6 Troop

85 Small, 5 Monster

Tervigon x2 (HQ) 430 pts
Toxin sacs
Regeneration
Catalyst


Tervigon x3 (Troop) 645 pts
Toxin sacs
Regeneration
Catalyst


Termagant Brood x2 (Troop) 280 pts
28 Termagants


Termagant Brood (Troop) 145 pts
29 Termagants


Reserves:
56 Termagants


85 Termagants, and 5 Tervigon's to spawn more. Even at an average of 9, that brings it up to 130 of the little ankle biters. If doubles get avoided on a few of the Tervigon's spawning, you're looking at 150+ Termagants easy. All with poisoned attacks; and most likely Feel No Pain as well, they quickly overwhelm in a 1500 pts game. Best thing is, easy to maintain being only 2 model types, and cheap to build being all plastic. And it's always fun watching guardsmen, Eldar, even Marines trying to gun down that many at once.

When you say serious, do you mean competition serious or another kind of serious. You biggest weakness is armoured fliers. You have no real counter to this kind of threat, a helldrake will be a massive head ache.

I'd strongly advise picking up something that has a reasonable chance of shooting down a flier or two.

Even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I'm there waiting... and your not coming out alive!

good good, looks like an interesting list. The hive guard will definitely plug the gap, best of luck with this list.
