Ok I'll start with explaining what this thread is and what the hell it is supposed to do.
In this thread I want people to post what they have equipped their TMC's with, their role in the army and if they have been tested in battle, how they perform on the field.
Then other 'nid players can give critisism towars them and tell people how they feel that a TMC should work by maybe just add or remove a thing or two from them or just put up a new one that they think works much better.
Most people have different opinions considering things like this and while some people like to take lots of cheap, for example fexes, another player maybe wnats to take one or two big powerhouses! This will lead to many differrent ideas and combos and will create a little "library" full of information regarding the new TMC's!
The thread is supposed to help New Tyranid players to get a grip on what is good for what on a TMC, and also other players who simply just don't have a clue about what to give their expensive little toys...
Well I'll try to get the ball rolling with one example that I intend to maybe put into my 1500 pts list that can be found here.
Hivefex; Biomorphs: Encanced Senses, Spine Banks
Weapon-Symbiotes: Two pairs of Devourers
Total: 118 pts
This little bugger can get away with having Spine Banks modelled on him if you play against fairly open opponents (friends etc...) and can therefore be used as an Elite choice in games of 1500 pts and more, whilst if you have an Heavy support slot open and 5 points left, give him the added Spine Banks for some additional punch! And best of all with him, he's dead cheap!
So some comments on him needed and some other TMC combos!
Hope that gets the ball rolling!
