Tyranid Skyblight List

Post  Skyblightmare907 on Wed Apr 02, 2014 7:04 pm

So I just got back into 40k and can't help but notice this brutal skyblight formation that just got released for nids, it would allow you to have 3 flyranta, 3 crones, 2 harpies, and 3 gargoyle troops with secure objective special rule and return into reserves after being killed on a 4+....

Selection Rule Summary:

* Fearless (Warhammer 40k rulebook p35)
* Instinctive Behaviour - Feed (Codex: Tyranids p33)
* Instinctive Behaviour - Hunt (Codex: Tyranids)
* Instinctive Behaviour - Lurk (Codex: Tyranids p33)
* Living Bomb (Spore Mines Only): Each Spore Mine model is treated as an individual unit. Spore Mines are always ignored for the purposes of any and all mission objectives. Spore Mines are not subject to Instinctive Behaviour, never go to ground (voluntarily or otherwise), run or fall back. At the beginning of the Tyranid Movement phase, each Spore Mine moves D6" in a direction determined by rolling the scatter dice (Tyranid player chooses the direction if a hit is rolled).If a Spore Mine suffers a wound, touches an enemy model, impassable terrain, or it ends any Movement phase within 2" of an enemy unit, it immediately explodes. Place the central hole of the large blast marker over the Spore Mine and resolve any hits at a Strength 4 and AP of 4. Spore Mines that drift off the table or into a friendly unit are immediately removed from play. (Codex: Tyranids p48)
* Psyker (Mastery Level 2) () (Warhammer 40k rulebook p41)
* Raking Strike: A Hive Crone’s Vector Strike is resolved at Strength 8.
* Shadow in the Warp: All enemy units and models with the Psyker, Psychic Pilot or Brotherhood of Psykers
special rules suffer a -3 penalty to their Leadership whilst they are within 12" of one or
more models with the Shadow in the Warp special rule. (Codex: Tyranids p33)
* Sonic Screech: When a Harpy charges into combat, all enemy models in the combat suffer -5 to their
Initiative (to a minimum of 1) until the end of that Assault phase. (Codex: Tyranids p43)
* Swarms (Warhammer 40k rulebook p43)
* Synapse Creature: Models with the Synapse Creature special rule have a synapse range of 12". Friendly
Codex: Tyranids models within this synapse range, including the Synapse Creatures
themselves, have the Fearless special rule. If a unit from Codex: Tyranids is falling back
and at least one of the unit’s models is within a friendly Synapse Creature’s synapse range
before the unit moves, the unit automatically Regroups. (Codex: Tyranids p33)

Be careful with that list, since all gaming stores/clubs in this general area including our own will NOT allow dataslates in tournaments, so just a heads up for tournament play. But from a non tournament game standpoint it looks like a brutal list, and even if you took out the skyblight formation and added something else it would still be a solid list.

Good thing you mentioned that before I went and dumped money on more FMC's, those crone/harpy models are like 80$....
