I havent played 40k for about 6 years. I played with a small group of friends and family (7 of us) and we all stopped playing fantasy and 40k at the same time for different reasons. Last year we started up fantasy again. Now me and my youngest brother want to get 40k going too. But the problem is he doesnt have the time (or money lol) to work on more then one army. So I was thinking I'd surprise him with two small fully painted armys, Tyranids and Blood Angels. We were watching a battle report last night which featured these two armies (or whatever they are called in 40k, dont remember) and I've always been a fan of Tyranids and he happened to think BAs looked great!40K Army: Other
So the brainteaser: I'd like for you savvy 40k brainiacs to help me put together two balanced lists that would only be going up against eachother, countering eachothers strengths and be generally fun in a casual way.
I was thinking 750points (for starters at least).
Since this will be a side project of mine (working on beastmen atm) I wont be getting any codex for a while, and it wouldnt really help me put together a balanced force anyways since I dont know anything about the current 40k edition. No need to post any points costs as per forum rules, and cost for models is no issue.
Would really appreciate some help on this one =)
