PostSubject: ard boys nid list 2500pts   Sat Oct 06, 2007 10:46 am

this is the list i am thinking of running in the semifinals the problem is i am not sure if i should switch out some of the genestealers for some meat shields aka spineogaunts the fact that i dont have to worry about synapse is really nice and rending is always amazing if i lose a squad that is major point loss what do you guys think.

I say keep the 'stealers. The only real problem you would have with them is facing AP 4 multi-shot weaponry.

Again, work it out statistically.

Hormies roll in with 72 attacks, half hit, 36 roll to wound (str 4 right?), 18 wounds, of which 1 in 6 fails, so 3 casualties.

Then any Deathwing player worth his salt ignores one of them from the apothecary.

So two casualties, and that is IF the hormies made it all the way there without a single casualty. Not very likely.

Now, it can happen... but if your dad had no outstanding rolls Ryan, then the Deathwing player had some very bad rolls.

OK... Done defending myself now,

I like Hormies myself, but I don't think they fit very well in this type of nid list.

When I put this list together for Dan I was thinking the same lines as you Matt. It's a 3 out of 10 chance to wound. Hormies are nice, but rending improves over all conditions. NO SAVES!

Trust me.

I've tried them all in different morphs and scenarios.

The naked Genestealer is by far the best point for point Troop selection that any Tyranid player can field. Any upgrades purchased are wasted as you're just better off buying additional Genestealers.

Ryan, this is like the 50th time I've had to tell you. Go back to the cheese discussion and read away.

haha, good way to defuse.

Now I'm sure Dan was looking for some feedback on his list, so back on topic please.
