First of all - my Hive Fleet:

Pics from a 2000p Game in Tübingen (Nids vs Chaos):

The Game was really funny, first three turns I did nothing, last three turns I killed almost his complete fleet.
He acted smarter that any of my enemies before - he went on AAF, tried to run through my fleet and outmanouvered my Claw Cruisers quite fine. Sadly he wasn't fast enough, so my Hives and Drones got him.
Quite impressive what Nid Hives can do in Boarding actions: +7 in the boarding action (AFTER rolling the dice) -> 7 points of damage -> automatic critical hit -> hull breach -> +2 Damage -> Cruiser dead.
When my bioplasma hive crushed his Flaggship with his S14 Bioplasma Salvo (a Styx with Mark of Nurgle) he gave up and made a retreat (there was no need to test - we swam in Blast Markers that gave at least +5 to every ship making a retreat^^)

These Pics are from the Skill Con Tabletop Con in Bad Urach.
We had the funny idea of a Megabattle by throwing anything we had on the gaming table.
In the end it was ~4,5k Chaos & 3,5k Imps vs ~6k Nids & ~2k Orks.
The battle raged for 12(!) hours.

First turns Nids and Orks did nearly nothing (except taking fire).
Turn 4 it got interesting - the imperial player (don't know what Bug was in his head) had the funny idea of running AAF through about 1,5k Nids and ~2k Orks.
In 2 turns Nids boarded 4 Cruisers and 3 Battlecruisers to drifting hulks and shoot down 2 Dauntlesses. What wasn't eaten by the Nids was dakkaed down by the Orks (impressive what these Big Gunz can do on Lock-On).
The only ships that survived were the Emperor and the Dictator, both sneeking around at the table edge and too far away.

While the imperials were crumbled to pieces, in the middle of the gaming table the Chaos Players (they were 2) had the funny idea of engaging tyranids in close combat with about 2/3 of their fleet (please DON'T ask me why, the gaming table was REALLY big enough to avoid full contact).

It came like it had to. After the Nids destroyed 1/3 of their fleet and crippled another 1/3 in about three turns they gave up.

Those ships are scary and I will never sleep again.

That is one hell of a fleet. I wonder what i could make out of my nid bits box.

Very much grande nice fleet. I'll build a chaos one in, oh... about 3 years when I'm done with WE and Plague marines and Mighty empires and all the terrain.

Using some of the Space Fleet Mini's I recently acquired of course.

Seems Orks are right. Space is green.

Very nice pics, though. Especially some of those ships, very nice indeed.

Seems Orks are right. Space is green.

*G* We had black Space Gaming Tables but they were too small for about 16.000 (!) points of ships, so we had to use the green ones.

Where did you get the nautilus-type ships? I've always wanted to have some in my fleet.

My one attempt at making one with greenstuff was very, very scary (and not in a good way).

In Germany you can buy them in any toy shop.
I just ripped off the tentacles and made new ones with green Stuff.

As a budding palaeontolgist, the site of an alien craft based on the
Class Cephalopoda (Subclass Ammonoidea ) fills me with an atavistic dread. Nightmarish jurassic horror

Jepp I like these ammonites.
And the brown Hive is made from a calmar (but sadly without the two long grapping tentacles).
Need to find a Loligo for that.

Those are some crazy tyranid conversions. Thanks for the pics of the battlereport.
