Default Whats the best Tyranid army?

What army do you prefer?

I prefer a shooty army, with most units able to handle assault and a few close combat troops. I don't like hormagaunts because they arn't very good in cc, and this is mainly why my army is shooty.


I edited the other poll you made and merged it with this one. No need to have two active topics about the same issue at one time. ~Gada

There is no best "tranid" army. If you're asking to min/max a Tyranid army then you're out of luck cause every army has it's strengths and weaknesses in the field. Also, some armies will make you the black sheep of the area. Especially if you're not a good sportsman about it.

With that said, you should just ask which type of Tyranid army do people prefer to use.

I run a 100% CC list, but that's just because I'm weird like that and I like the fluff more than winning battles.

Hybrid lists remain the strongest in my opinion, Nidzilla isn't as good anymore in my opinion. However, Genestealers are a necessity in almost all Nid lists as they're the most hard hitting unit we have access to.

i play for fun and i love themed lists. Winning ios fun, but over-rated.

I use an all ripper army, it's built to draw, but i'm lucky if i do, either way it's still a blast to play!

Blindmage, ripper army would count as a swarm in my books. Feel free to post more comments all!

He's not talking about a ripper-heavy army, he's talking about a 100% ripper army. That falls under the fluffy and I-wish-I-would-see-it-on-the-table category.

You should take a look at the battle reports and see how some of these army builds fared in-game.
I even made a battle report on the 'all out genestealer' built and it was fun, I even won.

However would i recommend it? Hell no. The list can be too easily crushed if things aren't going in your favor through out most of the game.

I did a 1k list with BL, 3 lictors and everything else Genestealers. I went up against an Ork boyz list with like 6 squads of 30 boyz. There was a LOT of killing, but I wiped the floor with him.
