View Full Version : Help me build my nids.

Hey all,
I'm currently putting together some big bugs for my nid army, specifically a Tyrant and a Carnifex.
The Tyrant will definitely be of the winged variety, but I havent decided on weapon load outs for either model.

I currently have:
A walking tyrant with dual twinlinked Devourers
A walking tyrant with a Barbed Strangler, Lash Whip and Bonesword
3 fexes with dual talons and other small add-ons
1 fex with Devourers and a Venom Cannon
1 fex with a Barbed Strangler and twinlinked Deathspitters

I have the parts to make
Either a Dakkaflyrant (dual twinlinked Devourers) or an assault Flyrant (dual talons)
A Dakkafex (dual twinlinked Devourers)
A Boomfex (Barbed Strangler and twinlinked Deathspitters)
A Sniperfex (Venom Cannon and twinlinked Devourers)
A Claw fex (Crushing claws and scything talons)
A Talon fex (dual talons)

Any recommendations?

Tyrant with wings and warp blast.
Fex with strangler and talons, elite/heavy support.

It gets deadly quick and spending more points can just be an excuse on spending less on genestealers. I dont understand people that would use crushing claws instead of adding another genestealer.

well, i'd definitely go with the assault tyrant. I know from experience how nasty those things can be when they really get stuck in there.

As for the Carnifex, i can't offer much advice, though i personally think the STR 10 melee attacks are pretty awesome.
