Default What do you expect, as a Nids player (or facing Nids) to survive a battle?

Oh yeah...I don't expect much of my army to survive by the end of the

battle...

All Tyranids newbies - Hormagaunts and Termagants are there to die.

Tie up the enemy, get in some casualties, and whatever else happens is...umm....

average.

I dunno. I literally don't expect anyone else to be

there at the end of the battle, except for maybe my Tyrant and/or Tyrant Guard if they&#

039;ve gotten into combat.

if im playin with 3 troops (16 hormagaunts,

16 termigaunts, 12 genstealers) a tyrant with the two gurads, maybe 3 raveners, a

carnifex, and a lictor... i would expect some genstealers to live, the tyrant maybe one

gurad, 1 ravener, lictor (with luck) and maybe 8 gaunts in all... but its fun

Yeah, we&#39;ve been doing that...as a result we now have about

double the threads.

Hey, I&#39;m not complaining, at this rate we&#

039;ll have the same/be rivalling the amount of threads as the Eldar or Tau forums!

Keep going!

On the topic however...see the Battle Reports section, under

"500 point Campaign" for exactly how much survived my battles. It&#39;s

not much in any except for vs. the Eldar player.

I think the problem with new players is they get scared as soon as they

start loosing figures they dont realise that loosing models is part of the nid way, not

like other races were every model is essential

Precisely, our race does not think. Throw your troops at the

enemy! Watch them die! And know it is all part of the Hive Mind&#39;s way.

But what DO you expect to survive? Me, I reckon if I win (which is the

scenario here), my stealers, as they&#39;re high impact guys that should have done the

damage, and thus standing over the fallen bodies of the prey. My Tyrant and Tyrant

Guard, the same.

This if off-topic: They should remain this Tyranid Online instead of

Tau Online at this rate.
