Tyranids - What do we think?

Nick speaking,

So, after two weeks with the new Codex, what do we think? Well, that was supposed to be the title of this post when I scheduled it a few weeks back, but I have to be honest, and say that I had no idea back then of the shock and horror, that the new Codex was going to bring. So instead, this post is just going to be a little update to where I am at with Nids...


I don't really want to get into the actual Codex too much, lets face it, there has been so many talks and reviews of this latest book already. Mostly bad of course, but there are a few die hard players that want and will make the Codex work and I hope to be one of them. From my stand point at the moment, I have read the book and have been very disappointed with all the changes we now face. Not only that, but all my favourite units and styles of play that I found so much fun are now no more. From what I can tell so far, I seem to be looking at a totally different set of minis to make the Codex work.


I currently have a lot of Eldar hobby projects going on, including painting my Wraithknight, and this release has done nothing to spark any interest in getting my Nids out, if anything, it has done the opposite, even with the new cool minis that have come with the release, for the very first time ever, I am going to shelf an army, at least for a couple of weeks anyway.

  3. I played 1500 points of the new bugs against necrons last night and I had a blast. I favour horde armies and having gants at 4 points and hormies at 5 meant having 120 little guys with plenty left over for the big guys. If you set your brain to disregard any post that has the word "meta" in the title and just focus on who you are actually likely to play against in real life, it becomes a fun, relatively balanced and scary codex (just like all the others)
