Mornin gents!

So im looking at getting into Tyranids and was wondering if you guys think the units in the Battleforce are a good start....or do they have a few useless units?

Total Tyranid newb, so any opinions would be great!

My buddy got the battleforce and it gave him a decent platform to start off, though he is only using the meele gaunts and not the shooty gaunts that come in. If you want to play with just the battleforce you will sadly have to keep two warriors out of play as they can't be fielded when you turn the third one to your HQ warrior. A quick fix to this is buying another set of warriors, you now have 5 in a brood and the HQ unit though that is dropping another $30 and the battleforce is the most expensive battleforce I have seen. Another fix is buying another HQ unit, depending on which one you want will be your extra cash cost to field the full battleforce.

Overall I think he is pleased with it and was a good starting point to build an army.

to be honeast Tyranids blow,i took on a 30 man unitt of meele gaunts, with just 5 jump pack guys and i killed them all but 1 on the least round,i allso killed everything but 2 troop's,the saves they have bad,the olny thing that is wroth its points is the wrom thing that comes out of the grand and thats its it allso has 6 wounds on it so thats not bad, Tyranids arent bad becasue of how mant wounds they have,but i killed everthing he had but two troops and thast becasue of there saves are bad,but it is all in the dice and luck,i have olnt faced them once so ya.

Grammar, and spell check. For the love of god, use them.

Secondy, dont listen to this clown, because he rolled well and took out 30 gaunts with "5 Jump pack guys" What exactly where these jump pack guys equipped with by the way? To make 30 attacks? AND 30 wounds? Smells like BS to me.


Tyranids are a strong army, they have poweful choices, good synergies, as for their battleforce, it comes with mostly useful units, the Hormagaunts are rarely used, but everyhting else is good.

Then your lieing. first of all, I dont even think Templars have a vow to re-roll wounds. Second, 5 Assualt marines, with 2 CCW, on the charge make 3 attacks each, so you were making 15 attacks. Even if you could re-roll. you couldnt of killed 30. Try again.

A nicely upgraded Nid army is one to fear, especially if you are Tau and hate CC.

The starting battleforce will be a good platform to go from unless you go for straight MC Nids, you don't get any in the battleforce so you might as well start from scratch. Also Amazon is a great place to buy the battleforce as they are cheaper than straight from GW.

wow ok they do have the vow its called, ACCEPT ANY CHALLENGE.NO MATTER THE ODDS,it has the enemy Special rule. Look it up ok and i olny had 3 attcks for one round,then it went down to 2, and i only had 3 jumper's atfer the first round he killed the other two.Allso he had fearless and he lost every combat phase,by 2 ,he had to roll for his saves on those two,and he failed them the whole game thats is what happen to the 30 meele grunts.
i allso killed all of his HQ and stuff like i siad he olny had 2 troops letf at the end of the game.
No lie and it wasnt his first time useing them.I think he lose because he didnt roll good at all i olny lost my two troop's the whole game swear to good on my life that really happen.
but dont belive me idc your nothing to me.

You swear to good? Well I hope good gives a shit.

And it gives the preferred enemy special rule. Look it up. It re-rolls to hit.

Maybe you should specify, because it is pretty obvious that would happen over three or four rounds. Genius. Just saying my five RAS owned his 30 Gaunts sort of makes it seem like you think you just owned them.

Dont apologise to me, its in the forum rules, if you have any up to date internet, it should be built in.

In regards to the OP, you might be surprised of what you find if you just google Tyranid tactics, or even use the forum search, some articles might be old, so some things may no longer be relevant, but the general strategies and ideas should be the same.

Your just making useless posts, for xp? Do you mean rep? Or just a higher post count. Either way you arent contributing. So it is a waste of other people's time to read them. How considerate of you.

I dont get mad very fast. and I could care less what you think of me, or what I mean to you. You mean nothing to me either. And I never said there was. But your making posts just for tha sake of posting. By your own admission. Its a waste of other people's time to read them. When your just trying to up your post count. You learn by reading and assimilating. Not talking out of your ass about topics you have no idea on.
