Default Intro Tournament

Hey all, I need a bit of help from the 40k community here. In my town I have about 4 friends who play 40k, and at my church there are about 8 kids ages 10-14 who want to learn how to play. So my plan is to host a little intro tournament for the kids, with two kids playing under the supervision of one of us "older" guys. The kids will have their choice of armies to play so we really aren't limited in that sense, however we don't have access to any dark eldar, or inquisition. Each game will be roughly 200 points in size and we'll play as long as the kids are interested.

So I need a little help from you guys. I need lots of lists ready so the kids can play any style that comes to mind. If anyone wanted to help me here they could post a fair, uncomplicated 200 point list for any army with the exception of the two listed above that aren't available to us. We aren't worrying about the force organization chart so this will be squad vs. squad combat. Models are no issue as we have essentially everything for every army.

An example of the type of list I'm looking for is something in the range of; 10 space marines divided into combat squads with one heavy weapon, or something to that effect.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.

Quick and Dirty Tau Lists:

Devilfish Assault: 12 Fire Warriors, Basic Fish. 200 points.
Warfish Assault: 8 Fire Warriors, Warfish. 200 points.
Fire Teams: 2 squads of 8 Fire Warriors, each with shas'ui and bonding knife. 190 points.
Wave o' Kroot: 20 Kroot, 10 Hounds. 200 Points.
Helios Strike Team: 3 Helios Suits. 192 Points.
Combined Arms: 2 Deathrain+ suits, 6 Fire Warriors with Shas'ui, Bonding Knife and Markerlight. 191 points.
Static Force: Sniper Drone Team, 12 Fire Warriors. 200 points.
Rolling/Flying Thunder: Hammerhead with Ion Cannon/Sky Ray, Piranha with Fusion Blaster. ~190 points.

And I think that should be enough Tau lists for 200 points…

I would shy away from vehicles...sure, they are cool, but anything tougher than a rhino is going to be difficult to take out in 200pts, and anyhow, they tend to soak most of the points.

I wouldn't worry overly much about adhering to legit squad sizes, just make it fair and fluffy, and avoid using stuff that'll require special rules, where possible. Get em hooked on the basics first.

Quickie guard list:
Squad with lasguns and a flamer.
Chimera
HW squad with autocannons.

Two squads of ten fire warriors
8 plague marines one with flamer one with melta gun


Neat idea for an intro.

Here's some Tyranid lists:

Ranged Brood:
Warriors x3 [Deathspitters, Scything Talons] = 78
Termagants x10 = 60
Termagants x10 = 60
Total = 198

Assault Brood:
Genestealers x6 [Feeder Tendrils] = 102
Genestealers x6 = 96
Total = 198

Mixed Brood:
Warriors x3 [Deathspitters, Scything Talons] = 78
Termagants x12= 72
Ripper Swarms x5 = 50
Total = 200

*If you are willing to ignore Synapse rules just to give them the basics:

Mixed Brood:
Termagant x9 = 54
Genestealers x6 = 96
Biovore x1 [Frag] = 50
Total = 200
(This would help to know Barrage rules...)

Mixed Brood (2):
Termagants x8 = 48
Termagants x8 = 48
Genestealers x6 = 96
Total = 198
