Ben's utterly insane Tyranid Highlanders

Post  Spamus Eatus on Wed Feb 18, 2015 5:34 am














Since this is a non serious business event I'm going to be downright silly for this one.  I'm not going to put in all the details on this list, just the basics.

HQ
Flying Tyrant W/2x brainleech devourers

ELITES
2x Zoanthrope Brood

Malanthrope

TROOPS
30x Termagaunts

Tervigon

FAST ATTACK
Harpy

Hive Crone

Dimacheron

HEAVY SUPPORT
Mawlok (formerly a carnifex)

Exocrine

Trygon


1750 points, Eight monstrous creatures  I admit I was giggling a bit making this list.

Edited to squeeze in more MC madness

What's a Dimacheron? Forgeworld jigger?

Does that make 4 FMC's? I wouldn't call that silly at all! What out for my lootas though :-) S7 AP4 10-30 shots :-P Harpies don't like that.

It is the big creature from FW. Has a fair number of interesting attacks with different profiles. Frontline did a review when the FW book dropped. Falls under the almost good enough to be competitive. I think the only big issue is that it is a little slow and doesn't have an invul save. Blenders stuff up good though.

He messed up the leaping thing, I'm fairly certain.  A Dimacheron may Leap in the move or assault phase, and when doing so, ignore terrain.  So, if you are in cover I can still get my full 2D6 charge range, with rerolls from fleet. Here's the rules for the big guy on my googledrive:

I really really like this guy and am almost positive he will wreck face.

After reading the actual rule it does seem pretty amazing. Lots of ID attacks and stuff. Nasty!

I'm having to wrack my brain to think if I can even field anything that could handle a circus like that. So many vectors I have to worry about: Mark and his ObjSec, this Kaiju Invasion...

Yeah, that's a ton of MCs... And I am in same boat as to how I am going to handle that...
It's very scary thought, and that .gif quite accurately describes it haha
