Re: How to deal with Nids?

So I've had a game where I proxied a riptide as an Y'Vahra and I actually won that. The Y'vahra cannot be charged, because of it's flamer and it deals just so much damage. Maybe I will get one in the future :/ Bear in mind that this is exactly why some 'Nid lists include a GSC Magus or two with Mas...

Re: How to deal with Nids?

Yes. Lictors using the stratagem Pheromone Trail can no longer deepstrike Infestation Node Genestealers, which was essentially the only use for that strat. Also, Tyranids stratagems and relics have been clarified not to work on GSC. Additionally, 4xBoneswords have been clarified to only give one ext...

Re: How to deal with Nids?

Hey there! Primarily-Tyranids player here. Tau may be currently underpowered, but they're seemingly designed to counter 'nids, so this matchup is perfectly winnable with some smart listbuilding. Here's what you need to know! Synapse is the ability that prevents Tyranids from taking Morale, and what ...

Re: Thoughts on the New Tyranids

You do know that I posted about this right before you did this. Seriously, write in the right post... I am aware! However, everything you wrote seemed to pertain to 7th edition rather than 8th edition- a very different beast. As such, I thought it was best not to intrude on your thread, but rather ...

Re: Thoughts on the New Tyranids

Thanks for your thoughts, Panzer! I'd like to address them one by one, as you did mine. Your thoughts on Kroot Hounds are revealing. It's true that they're not much use against shooting armies. However, if you're not even willing to spare 40 points for Kroot Hounds to help counter assault armies in ...

Thoughts on the New Tyranids

Hey there. First-time poster here. I was a Tyranids and dabbling Tau player in 7th edition, and now I'm teaching a Tau buddy the 8e rules. It's a much harder matchup for Tau in 8e than it was in the last edition, when they could get away with just standing still and shooting Tyranids off the board, ...
