Hive fleet Leviathan would be the one if I recall, as the kryptman dude lured the entire hive fleet into charadon or something.

Behemoth definately ate its share of Orks... so did Kraken.

The whole Leviathan thing is the biggy at the moment though. Fully half of Hive Fleet Leviathan is currently trying to munch its way through the Ork Empire of (I think) Charadon.

I hope the new ork codex mentions the nid invansions, and maybe a special character with special army list (BuGG Huntaz)

Considering how fast the Orks reproduce, the Tyranids could theoretically munch on the planet indefinetley. Or at least get a lot more biomass out of it then you would normally get in a planet that size.

Another scary thought is Tyranids making use of Ork DNA. Ie, Tyranids growing from spores, or Tyranids gaining the same psychic potential Orks have.

1. Not following you here. They couldn't get more biomass out of the planet than there is on the surface and in the upper part of the crust, which are the bits they strip off when they consume a world.
2. They already have. Biovores are made using harvested Ork genetic material.

You're probably right here.

I'll take your word for it, but if that's the best they can come up with, I seriously overestimated them. The examples I gave in my first post are more scary examples. Not only would Hormagaunts be dropping down from the sky, they'd be coming up out of the ground. And they'd keep coming up out of the ground even after the Hive Ships were all destroyed.

Maybe the Hivemind can't figure out how to "Turn on" the genetic coding that lets Orks reproduce the way they do?

I suppose it's possible, but it dosen't fit in with the "invincible devourer of worlds" image very well. One of the scariest things about the Tyranids is their ability to take traits from their enemies. If you say "they can't figure out how to" it undermines their whole image.

I perfer to think they just haven't run into enough Orks yet. It's only a matter of time.
