OK, I'm still trying to get together a nid list before going out to buy stuff, and then came across the fact you can take tonnes of gaunts. Here is the list I drew up. Oh yea, the gaunts are armed with fleshborers because thats how I'm going to buy them, plus fleshborers aren't bad.

So there it is. 192 little guys, and 15 medium guys. I'm just asking if this list would work OK. I know alot of you are going to be like "Warriors suck 'cuz of the FAQ", but I'm still on the side that they rock, cheep synapse providers, and theyrs still more st 8 weapons than st 9+ fielded. If my opponent fields lots of st 9+ weapons, I'll just hug cover.

Personally, I'm a bit worried about your A-T capabilities. First, give all your warriors rending claws. That'll help against power-armour and tanks. I also find that 'Nids are better with assaulting then shooting, so I would switch out a capable of broods of Gaunts for some Hormos.

It works, but not nearly was well as you would think. The problem comes in that the way you are going to win a lot of games is the fact that you have 200+ models in a 1500 point game.

What I would recommend is making three broods spinegaunts, freeing up 96 points. I would also drop the EC from your HQ warriors, freeing up 18 more points, as well as drop a squad of elite warriors, freeing up 66 more points. Then drop 8 spinegaunts, giving you 40 more points. In total that gives you 220 points. Spend those points on 3 zoanthropes with warp blast and synapse creature, and rending claws for all of your warriors. You still have 203 models :P

Although, be warned. this list is not nearly as powerful as it was in previous editions. With new shooting rules, they can pick off your warriors and zoanthropes. Which i don't find to be right. I don't care how well trained you are, if ~200 gaunts run at you... you panic and shoot the gaunts. Right?

Great army. I'm always telling my bro that he should get tonnes of little guys. But no he has 2 hive tyrants and 4 carnifexs in his 2000pt army. Oh i forgot. 2 groups of 8 gaunts. He dosn't seem to relise that when i kill them he loosees because monstrous creatures dont count as scoring units

Lol, I play a godzilla list and I know carnys count as scoring units. The only time they don't is if you knock them below 50% of their wounds.

Now, go play some rematches with him.
