And mine is bigger, and older
By Zerosignal's request I hereby post my analogy between "Avatar" and 40k
Glad to know I'm not the only one who thought that
Come to think of it, 40k tau are definitely cooler If some kind of chaos marine analog is not inserted into this movie I will be sorely disappointed.
That Tau model is friggin' sick.
Yes it is... Definitely the most accurately reproduced and appropriately "dark" Warhammer 3d model i've yet seen
It actually makes them look like alien warriors, instead of happy-blue-commie-goat-men.
I hatehatehatehatehatehatehatehate Tau Railguns
^ Aw, why? Just because they're 72" ranged, S10, AP1 monstrosities attached to quickly relocateable grav-tanks?
That sums it up.
AND pulse rifles.....and other Tau shooty sticks of doom.
It's awesome - I wonder who painted it?
Tau = Unfair squishy little manga bastards.....I constantly lose to them and their pulse rifles.....
Dude, I totally feel your pain.
I have beaten them in the past but I really need to be lucky with terrain placement and/or field some horribly gribbly units specifically to take care of them. Those gits with the jump packs are ESPECIALLY annoying....however if you can get hold of them in hand to hand then Tau pate becomes the order of the day
It looks more like a rendered 3d model than a painting to me
And also; Tyranids > Tau. Sure, the tau have their fancypants weapons, but the 'nids move so fast it doesn't matter Especially on smaller tables
^ And fluff-wise the tyranids are going to win anyway
Very true. I have to say, i'm really liking the newer 'nid list. I hadn't really seen it until a couple months back when I picked it up, but they really did improve it over the last edition.
And most importantly they brought back the absolutely incredible looking Hive Tyrant from however long ago
They've got the new codex coming soon, yes?
I only know this because my brother in law is a Tyranid playing FIEND! I think he's got about 5000 points...?
I dunno about a new codex, I'm about as in the loop as something thats not in the loop at all...
Seeing as most Tyranid units are pretty cheap pointwise, that's gotta be a HUGE fuck-off army.
Didn't they just release a new codex a year ago or so? I remember some big stink over a statement in the new codex that basically said that the emperor only had a few hundred years left. Given my dodgy memory though that could have easily been the last codex
Yeah, it's pretty massive. Might be closer to 4000+, but I'll have to ask. It's mostly a SEA of Hormagaunts (like 80% of his figures), three squads of Termagants, a few squads of genestealers, a Broodlord, a Hive Tyrant, three Carnifex, a Hive Guard, a Zoanthrope, and 2 Licthors.
He obviously doesn't run all of that straight out, but he subs in bits and pieces depending on the game. I'm sure I'm missing a few, but I'll see if I can snag his army list next time he comes by.
Yep. Here she is:
Codex: Tyranids | Games Workshop
They're making the Broodlord a troop choice (I believe), remaking a lot of the figures as plastic, and making a different Battleforce (similar).

What what what??!? Holy shit
