Default Building My Very Own Endless Swarm - (:

alright,
ive been looking everywhere for some inspiration to what to actually get for my tyranid army, although im not actually going to be using this army to play a game with, it is going to be mostly to showoff so people are like WOW! :O
I went on youtube, as im also your common ' youtube junkie ' but yeah so i went on a search through youtube to look at some other peoples ' WOW ' armys for some inspiration and i came across a video made by ' miniwargaming ' ( youtube account name ) and really what they are aiming to do shocked me and i said to myself "woah i must try this myself " and now im hyped to start this army, and its going to start as soon as possible. So heres my idea.

6x Tyranid BattleForce = $900.00
- Per Box : 1x Carnifex ; 8x Genestealers ;
8x TermaGaunts ; 8x Hormagaunts ; 3x Warriors.
- In Total : 6x Carnifex ; 48 Genestealers ;
48 Termagaunts ; 48 hormagaunts ; 18x warriors.

3x Tyranid Gaunts = $150.00
- Per Box : 8x Termagaunts ; 8x Hormagaunts ;
1x Ripper Swarm.
- In Total : 24x Termagaunts ; 24x Hormagaunts ;
3x Ripper Swarms

1x Trygon = $139.78
- In Total : 1x Trygon

2x Hive Tyrant = $170.00
- In Total : 2x Hive Tyrant

8x Raveners = $264.00
- In Total : 8x Raveners

3x Zoanthropes = $99.00
- In Total : 3x Zoanthropes

3x Lictor = $99.00
- In Total : 3x Lictor

3x Tyrant Guards = $99.00
- In Total : 3x Tyrant Guard

1x Brood Lord = $33.00
- In Total : 1x Brood Lord

1x Scythed Hyrodule = $152.27
- In Total : 1x Scythed Hyrodule

Cost Total : $2106.05
Total Units:
- 6 Carnifexs
- 48 Genestealers
- 72 Termagaunts
- 72 Hormagaunts
- 18 Warriors
- 3 Ripper Swarms
- 1 Trygon
- 2 Hive Tyrants
- 8 Raveners
- 3 Zoanthropes
- 3 Lictor
- 3 Tyrant Guards
- 1 Brood Lord
- 1 Scythed Hyrodule


i'll keep everyone on this forum posted and im using my current couple of models to begin this army ill be using my designed colour scheme; im calling them ' hive fleet devourers '

Colour Scheme As Follows :

Body: Bleach Bone
Carapace: Blood Red
Carapace Highlight: Chaos Black
Hooves: Bubonic Brown
Claws: Chaos Black
Claws Highlight: Blood Red
Flesh Bits: Scorpion Green
Eyes: Blood Red
Teeth: Blood Red
Base: Goblin Green ( with Grass Flock )

Going To Increase this list as im also aiming to buy a barbed herodule as well just so i can have both herodules but anyway tell me what u think of me starting - THE ENDLESS HIVE FLEET DEVOURER!

Thankyou

I would highly reccomend you wait for the new Tyranid codex and plastic and metal kits to roll around. Also, and this is just my personal opinion, I think you're better off collecting a usable army, learning to play well with it, and expanding it with new units and higher model count, eventually branching into Apocalypse. Simply planning out a massive list to buy is going to make it a lot harder to maintain any momentum of assembling and painting then anyone can possibly imagine. You won't know nearly as well how you want your massive swarm equipped and and how you want to use them; personal preferences and tactic come only with time. :-X

That's a very ambitious project, but I'm wondering why you wouldn't want to game with it after all the expense and work? I'm currently in the middle of assembling my own Endless Swarm (the apoc set, 60 Gaunt/Hormagaunt, gaunts done, hormagaunts coming before the new codex is my plan) but I stopped to put together my Hierophant because the I was starting to go a little insane with getting all those little bits cleaned up and together. I'm also feeling a little overwhelmed by the prospect of painting them all once I'm finally done. So I'll have to see how it goes.

I think Droids suggestion is not a bad one, particularly with your bigger models like the Tyrants and Fexes, waiting to see what the new Codex brings is probably a good idea before putting biomorphs on them - unless you plan to heavily magnetize them.

But good luck to you either way, it'll be impressive looking if you can stay with it. Show us some pictures of the color scheme once you get a few painted up.

You may want to get the current Tyranid Battleforces. It might go the way of the Imperial Guard and you can kiss goodbye to that Carnifex for cheap.

Buy as many Battleforces as you can afford before January. As it stands, it's brilliant value, and who knows what GW will do to it come January....

I would wait for the new codex but buy the battleforces now since GW could wreck the current one.
