1850 Close Combat Nids

now for something completely different from my other list(s):

Code: Select all
hive tyrant           240
lash whip + bonesword
adrenal glands

3 tyrant guard        165
adrenal glands

tervigon              225
crushing claws
adrenal glands

haruspex              175
adrenal glands

venomthrope            45

venomthrope            45

10 genestealers       160
adrenal glands

10 genestealers       160
adrenal glands

3 carnifexes          405
adrenal glands

trygon prime          230

total                1850


the list has a couple repeated choices (genestealers because they're really cool (though not particular points efficient) and venomthropes because they're the only way to keep the genestealers alive to try to get across the board) and has the glaring flaw that it absolutely can't do a thing against flyers. i think it would make for an interesting game having all these fleet close combat bugs charging across the board. i'd be really interested to see how many of these dudes would actually get across the board against a nasty shooting army like tau, eldar, or marines. i think you could also have a really sweet slugfest against another close combat army like demons. all in all, i think the list is probably significantly less effective than the shooting lists (i guess that's just how nids are now, sadly) but it's fun to really take a theme and run with it :)

My first impression is that it would be a fun list to play. It is almost a White Dwarf kind of list. I don't know about 3 carnis, maybe 2. Do you hate hormagaunts and all the other little creatures?

i considered putting some hormagants in the list (in place of the second unit of pantsthieves) but i didn't initially simply because i don't know how many i have and can't be bothered to count them right now :lol: in all honestly though, i do think the big monsters are way cooler than the little ones :P

this list makes me wish i owned raveners :P

yeah... a "medium bug" list would be really cool... massed Raveners, Warriors, Lictors, Venomthropes, etc etc... but you'd go broke buying them all! :)
