750pt Nids List

Nick speaking,

Every so often my buddies and I will get together for a fun four way battle. We find the easiest mission to play is Space Junk, where you have random, centrally positioned objectives that scatter about. We tend to play 750pts with a minimum of one troop and one HQ, and of course random player turns. Usually, it is a great time to field something that you just want to try out for a bit fun...


Imagine a Deep Striking BA's Land Raider into the middle of the board, or six bare boned Eldar Grav tanks for some fun. Actually, it was one of these games that I first used a Tervigon, and this is what I want to use to expand my 750pt list, after all why play with 750pts like everyone else? Lets get two Tervies on the table and play with 1000pts instead! Well, I don't know what the mathammer is on how many Gants two Tervies will make on average, but you must be able to get 50 out on a good day?

This is the list I have come up with...

1 x Tyranid Prime
1 x Tervigon
1 x Tervigon
10 x Termagants
10 x Termagants
2x Hive Guard
2x Venomthropes

I deploy the two Gant broods up front and around the sides, the two troop Tervigons go behind them, and the Prime joins the Venomthropes behind them, with the Hive Guard deployed to one side, keeping within range of the Prime in case he has to join them. Prime will move between these units depending on who needs help with wound allocation.

Unlike my previous list where I have DoM coming in with a pod, this list will have to move as a massive blob, generating as many disposable troop choices as possible. Hive Guard pop vehicles, and Venomthropes does the usual with the 5+ cover save etc. I basically start off the game moving towards the nearest enemy, and by mid game start getting into position for the objectives in the centre.

What would you use in a 750pt, all on all, fun game?

  1. Biovores. Nine Biovores. And I guess some Hive Guard also because they're awesome and I like screwing up 4+ save guys. But I love Biovores way, way more than their statline should allow.
