Tyranid 'Loc List' Update with Defence Line

Nick speaking,

Even though my Defence Line is Necron themed, I plan on trying it out with some of my other armies as well. I figured that if my Nids were using a Necron looking Defence Line, it wouldn't look that odd, as the rest of my gaming board is based on Necron terrain anyway. So until I get myself a pukka Nid Defence Line, they will have to use a Necron one that they found on a the battlefield instead.

The list I want to have the Defence Line in is my 'Loc List'. The list has worked well so far, but I think it could really benefit from some cover saves on the Hive Guard, Tervigon and Termagant blob. Now, I don't own a real Tervigon, as my one is converted up, but judging from what I can see with the sizes of the new Tervigon model and the Defence Line, they will be 25% in cover behind the line? If any of my fellow Nid players could confirm that for me please, that would be great.


Here is my original 'Loc List' which after a few comments from my followers, was due for some changes anyway...

One comment was for the inclusion of Hive Commander on the Tyrant, and I like this idea. It will allow me to reserve the two Mawlocs if they find themselves in danger of being taken out turn one. I won't have to worry about burrowing them from the off, as it will almost guarantee they will come out on turn two from reserve, bar rolling ones. It will also get my unit of Devil Gants and other reserves out nice and early as well. To make way for the Defence Line, I will be dropping a unit of Hive Guard and reducing the other two units down to two in each. I think two units of two will be ample enough to do what they need to do and it leaves me an Elites slot open for DoM. The rest of the tweaks were just a few Gants here and there and Death Spitters for the pods, which I have previously found to be quite useful and was an easy way to spend the last few points. 


Here is my new 'Loc List' after all the tweaks, battle reports to follow...
