Countdown to Counter Offensive 2: Tyranids (1979 points) by Patrick Eibel
Patrick EibelI have recently come into possession of quite a large Tyranid army. Originally, I was going to try and sell it to fund other projects, but I must admit that it is just too tempting not to keep. I will use the weekend to gauge how much I really like the army. 

  • Hive Tyrant w/ venom cannon, toxin sacs, adrenal glands (WS), lash whip & bonesword, implant attacks, symbiote rippers (160 points)
  • Two Tyrant Guard (90 points)
  • Two Lictors (160 points)
  • Carnifex w/ adrenal glands, bio-plasma, scything talons (2x) (113 points)
  • Carnifex as above
  • Twelve Genestealers w/ extended carapace (240 points)
  • Twelve Genestealers as above
  • Twelve Genestealers as above
  • Twelve Genestealers as above
  • Twelve Hormagaunts (120 points)
  • 2 Zoanthropes w/ Warp Blast (110 points)
  • Carnifex w/ enhanced senses, venom cannon, barbed strangler (153 points) 
Genestealers

The list represents most of the figures that were given to me in the army. Some choices may seem curious, like why I have taken two cheap assault Carnifexes as Elite units. Wherever possible, I tried to use the figures as I got them, so that meant not making changes to the two old Screamer-Killer style Carnifexes I received. I did add one (and potentially two) shooty-oriented Carnifex, as well as two Zoanthropes. I will be curious to see how well this army fares, especially against gun-heavy armies like Space Marines and Imperial Guard.
