Now that I have my first Tervigon completed, I need to have a look at Termagants! I currently have forty of them, but if I'm going to end up with five Tervigons, I know that I will need a lot more. This doesn't worry me, as I am sure I will be able to beg, borrow or steal more of them, or worse case scenario, just get them from eBay! I have a nice and simple colour scheme as well for my Nids, so I am not even worried about painting up one hundred plus Gants!
The only trouble I see is how to distinguish the many different Termagant broods that will end up on the table? I have been thinking long and hard about this and the most obvious way is to paint up lots of eighteen strong broods in different colour schemes! Eighteen models is the maximum amount a Tervigon can spawn in one turn. But that would mean on a lower spawn count of say, twelve models, six Termagants would be wasted? I suppose if I the spawned a small brood of six or less later in the game I could use them, but I am thinking you will end up with a lot of odd numbers and a bit of a miss match.
I hope I am making sense? I don't really want to have a load of Gants that can't be used, after all, I need so many to make it all work in the first place anyway! Maybe I am worrying about nothing, but if I painted all one hundred plus Gants all the same, like I would like to, how would the broods be distinguished? It was bad enough when I played with only forty unpainted Gants, I even had one brood facing backwards to highlight the brood on the table!
It's fair to say that I have never played, or seen being played, a game with five Tervigons and a ton of Gants, but I am sure there would be a lot of confusion on the table. I know that the Gants will be shot down or killed in the assault during the game, and they can then be recycled, but you can't rely on that. The last thing you want to do is run out of Gant models on a good spawning day!
So does anyone out there use a Tervigon heavy list and have any experience with this problem? Do you have any advice or answers that can help me with my Termagant troubles?
