Biovore Fun!

Nick speaking,

I have been playing some pretty competitive Nid Lists lately, you know, the usual Flyrant, Hive Guard and Tervigon combos. Having just finished painting my Biovores, and for a break from the norm, I thought I would come up with a fun list to use them in. First, I wanted three groups of Spore Mine Clusters in the list, after all, I want as many Spore Mines out on the table as I can, so the list starts with three groups of five Clusters and a Brood of Biovores...



  

As I am not too bothered about winning with this army, with the emphasis more on fun. I thought I might as well use Genestealers as the main Troops choice. One large beefed up brood to advance up the field with all the upgrades (gulp), and a Brood Lord to swap out for a couple of Biomancy powers. I will need to give the unit cover saves, so one unit of Ripper swarms to scuttle in front of them should keep the fun theme going nicely.



I will need a small unit of Stealers to sit on an objective in my deployment zone, and that will mean the Biovores will be short of some Synapse. So I will take a Tyranid Prime to join them and keep them shooting every turn. Now to bolster the list, if it's possible! The Large Brood of Stealers are going to be a big target, so I will run forward a Trygon along with them to try and syphon off some shots, I might as well give him Regeneration as well. Sadly I haven't been able to get away from a Flyrant in the list. I really need some extra distractions for the Stealer unit, along with some upfront Shadow of the Warp. I then end the list with a brood of Y-Stealers, just to keep the Stealer and fun theme going.

Here is my final list...
