Smile New to Tyranids, 1500 point army.

Hey guys, I'm new to Tyranids, I've been with marines for a couple of years now, I decided to move over to Tyranids as they're the army I originally wanted to do. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on this list I've written up though, as I'm certain it isn't perfect.


HQ
Hive Tyrant – Bonded exoskeleton, lash whip and bonesword, stranglethorn cannon, adrenal glands, toxic sacks. – 210

??? (I don't know what to class these as, as it says in the codex for each hive tyrant you can have a tyrant guard brood, and not class them as a HQ choice.)

Tyrant Guard Brood of 3 – normal scything talons, walking fists. – 180

Elites

Pyrovore – 135

Troops

Genestealer brood of 9 – upgrade 1 to broodlord with scything talons - 174

Termagant brood of 30 – 150

Termagant brood of 30 – 150

Hormagaunt brood of 30 – 180

Fast attack

Gargoyle brood of 15 - 90

Heavy Support

Trygon – adrenal glands, toxin sacs - 220

Total: 1429

The notes that are just standard equip with certain models are more for me than they are you, so I remember what to do when putting it together. Also, I've ordered a brood of Termagants to make a start. ^.^

nice this list will be hard for the enemy to desroy however ther is one problem you only have one synapse creature you will need another to keep those gaunts in check, prehapse a warrior brood or dropping the upgrades on the trygon and making it a prime.

Why thank you. And aye, I was thinking that when leafing through the codex. I decided to keep the upgrades and upgrade to prime. And because of this, dropped the gargoyles and replaced them with some Raveners, because that way its like a deep strike, all I need to do is leave the marker. I cut the Pyrovore, upgraded my genestealers and brought in a warrior brood of three. Here's what the list is looking like now.


TYRANIDS

HQ

Hive Tyrant – Bonded exoskeleton, lash whip and bone sword, strangle thorn cannon, adrenal glands, toxic sacks. – 210

Troops

Brood of 3 warriors – 1 barbed strangler, adrenal glands, toxin sacs - 130

Gene stealer brood of 9 – upgrade 1 to brood lord with scything talons, 8 other gene stealers with scything talons, toxin sacs, adrenal glands - 238

Termagant brood of 30 – 150

Termagant brood of 30 – 150

Hormagaunt brood of 30 – 180

Fast attack

Ravener brood of 6 - 180

Heavy Support

Trygon prime – adrenal glands, toxin sacs – 260

Total: 1498

i agree, u need more synapse, bring a warrior brood and/or make trygon a prime. u could also toss in a lictor instead of pyrovore and replace trygon with mawloc.

dont give MCs toxin sacs! it makes them LESS powerful because it forces them to wound on 4+ where they normally wound on 3+ or 2+ for the most part. adrenal glands are good though.
