Well this is my first Nid army, I wanted to start a Xenos army as I am sick of playing with Necrons in 5th Ed, they suck. I have A Death Guard army and a Space Wolves army that is in progress right now. I will start a Project log thread on them when my Thunder Wolves come.

The main reason I choose nids is I really wanted the chance to paint a super heavy and I wanted a real Apoc size force that I can keep building on. It was a toss up between Orks and Nids as I liked the Gargantuan Squiggoth, but the Hierophant just edges it for me.

So prepare for Hive Fleet Genocide (Might change the name at a later date.)

What I will be modelling/painting soon

Tyranid Hierophant Bio-Titan (Ordered)

Forgeworld Winged Hive Tyrant (ordered)

GW Tyranid Battle Force (Got)

GW Trygon/Mawloc
GW Biovore x2
GW Venomthrope } Getting in near future
GW Zoanthrope x3
GW Hive Guard

Looking forward to starting this, any Nid players care to share some tips please feel free as I know I've got a big job ahead of me and any advice will help.

I'm still wondering how to create the Doom of malantai and tyronnofex's

Why not change the hive fleet name to Hive fleet Formidionis or Formido. Both mean dread in Latin.

As for tips I have none since I do not play nids that much. Look forward to any developments though.

Hive guard work better in groups of 3. Venom as I have come to hear, aren't really worth the elite slot. I don't know about Apoc but you got no troops. Some gargoyles would be nice for your Winged Tyr. More tyrgons. Or drop them for heradoules, barbed and scyth.

I got troops with the battleforce, I want an Apoc size force but I definitely want to build a competitive army list also for smaller games.
