Bring enough anti tank to bring down a Knight in one or two turns. This means that Tyranid models must fight with two pairs of any Tyranid Melee weapons to gain a bonus Attack in close combat for fighting with two weapons.

Coming soon from forgeworld. : Warhammer40k

Spore Chimneys is a set of three Battlefield Debris pieces no more than 2″x2″ board and 5″ high each. Also remember Fleshbane is modified too; but 30k mechancium is able to bring this in quantity so don’t get careless. Carnifexes help bridge the gap of close combat. The Carnifex just falls short of being an all-star by a reliance on Synapse to function well, as well as requiring support from other Tyranids to provide it with a cover save, or to simply draw fire away from it as it is fragile in comparison to other TMCs.

I picked up some Custodes recently just to paint but may one day do a full army. I sure hope they release something interesting other than 30k and marines.

Same with the relic of Cadia that goes from reroll 1s to reroll everything against chaos. Just make sure to not go overboard on options, because this thing will have quite a bit gunning for it. Your ad here, right now: Ynnari detachment loses craftworld bonuses as well as battle focus. Those had completely slipped my mind. Tough to trigger prey adaptation with a move of 5 and it needing to be in melee.


I believe by “type” it means infantry, mcjump infantry, etc. Just make it more specific then – troops are exempt. The Hive Tyrant is the heart of the competitive Tyranid army, especially when you give him wings and some guns.

Codex – Tyranids: /tg/ edition

This is where Hgaunts are the best. Tyranid troops are basically the reason other races have weapons with crap AP values, you will lose them in droves, and yet STILL have enough to bury your enemy in bodies. So, I think the spam is an issue like others.

For lists that do not use Tyrannocytes, or do not want Stone Wrecker Carnifexes using a Tyrannocyte, this is a good option. Also the plastic release added variants that forgeworld hadn’t done. Based on the simple and easy to to produce Carnifex genus, Dactylis is nothing like its progenitor.

Can you guys what percentage of those cards are actually used? Adding in a load of unnecessary stuff has made your argument unclear and, in my opinion, unfounded. All of my wants.


Spams weakness is time, the lists are so inflexible that people know exactly what to do against them, there are no tactical tricks. It’s pretty clear that these are NOT up to the standard of the Indexes, and I would not blame anyone for continuing to treat Forgeworld as “not real 40k” if the rest of the Forgeworld datasheets are of similar quality.

The cc-tyrant isn’t really an optimal load-out because, once again, the lack of a Invulnerable save in close combat is a weakness when going up against enemy dedicated assault units. The more restrictive you make list building the more similar rulee top lists will look. Tyranid allied detachments may take up to one additional fortification from the list below.

Plastic custodes and sisters have already had rules since the index dropped.

Exactly this, we should be talking how do we compete against a list like flyrants. Let’s talk about Tau guns. That murders some armies. Even better, you not only have the mandatory Warlord re-roll, but you can also re-roll Instinctive Behavior. I am trying to find the IA book with the latest rules for him I am wondering if any can help me. Just like a Lord of skulls or yanari dark dealers lol.


Where are the rules legit place to buy them? Do not fuck rukes up. Another Codex brings another set of Chapter Tactics-equivalents, representing the main 3 Hive Fleets in the fluff Behemoth, Kraken, and Leviathan as well as 4 others that range from the obscure to the entirely new.

Your ad here, right now: I am new to 40k this edition. Malanthrope and Venomthropes for that matter is still a very good model to have on your side. Does “Overcharged Burst” apply to both weapons, or just one? That probably isn’t great for tournaments, though, having that one model come in that basically no one has heard about.

Mmalanthrope screws over factions that are based around their basic troops like Orks and guard. The Prime is given plenty of ablative wounds and the toxigaunts are ensured to make it into assault without risking a fall back or mauling each other, which helps ensure that whatever this unit is dedicated to taking down is tarpitted and killed.

This could help keep the balance for matched play. Rulees not expect vanilla hormagaunts to provide damage, that is not their role. Mech lists took a hit in that glancing hits on vehicles would have off 1 of maybe hull points. After reading all of these comments and seeing the same things said. In Starcraft there are tons of different mxlanthrope to pick from for 3 different armies but it usually ends up being A meta of the best units and a lot of units don’t get used very often either.

Ironically, I think the flamer is almost as good as the Ion against most vehicles, just due to the superior number of shots. They can’t be 6fh in any possible way, they can only be killed. It’s been like this for 20 years, it’s not going to change. June 29,
