'Nids

Post  Lore Weaver on Sun Jan 12, 2014 2:24 pm

Abuse Puppy has some fairly solid analysis of e new book.

He gaffe'd on Shrouding though (if one model has it, the whole unit gets it).

I think Crones start off the board and hope to alpha with the vector strike...

The 2+ t–fex seems good.

4pt guants seem good.

Zoo's are alright.

Flyrants are okay.

I'd say it's on par with the CSM code\xl better troops than CSM, no Heldrake.

I got an FAQ question already, Crone has 4 missiles a flamer and a beefed up vector strike. according to rules he can vector strike and fire 1 weapon. does he work like a normal flyer letting him fire 2 missiles as well?

Since Flying Monstrous Creatures are not "Flyers" as per the vehicle BRB rules it is still bound by the two weapons rules for Monstrous Creatures.

They are not terrible. Although better hope you don't bone those attacks. I hear mishaps are bad  Razz 

Double sadface though, apparently in addition to all the downsides to swarmlord he lost forcing opponents to re-roll successful invulnerable saves.  Crying or Very sad poor swarmlord.

Indeed.

Although it'll be interesting to see in the coming weeks how they perform.

I love that in that battle report, they're talking about how horrible Tyranids are, but he's playing a power tourney list taudar monstrosity, and he got seized on... And he had hardly any synapse... Oookay reecius...

Ya, still shouldn't get pants'd that badly though. Really highlights how bad T5 with a 4+ save is. Might have to start Crone's off the board for them to live. Not sure on how one would protect synapse either. A bunch of Hive Guard maybe?

Like I said, it's a lot like the Chaos Space Marines book.

Mawloc's, Crones, Exocrines, Terrorfex's all seem good.

Heavy Support should be maxed out every game for the 'nids.

I still think the swarm army is playable too though. 90 'Gaunets and 3 Tervigons || Bare bone's guants too, that's a lot of things on the board for cheap. Then 3 Tervigon rolls gives you a decent shot at getting Catalyst. Then take some Zoanthrope's, maybe an electrostatic grub guy????

I dunno... I don't have a copy of the book to read yet, besides the peak I took at Jordan's copy.
