On todays menu, Tyranid warriors.
The sneek peek site in the White Dwarf announced one fine day new models for the tyranid range. Depicted was the a plastic tyranid warrior. That was the time I came back to 40k and back into the hobby after my puberty hiatus.
I LOVE the Warrior Model. It is such a unique design, and though I am currently wandering different paths in the hobby, the warrior is still one of my favourite models.
In 4th Edition, there were severall way to play Tyranids. Hivefleet Moloch initiated a pure onslaught of Big Bug Armylists, called the "Godzilla Army".
I wanted to have something different and came up with the warrior list.
Unlike any other troop type, warriors could be used as HQ-selection, as Elite-selection and, having wings, as Shock-selection.
My Idea was to max out the numbers of used warriors. For that, I gave eah unit a different role on the battle field. One unit was for the ranged assault, while the other one was equiped with CC weaponry. I figure it is easy to pic out which is which.
