The Carthaginians have been delayed by my brown primer running out, but a new can arrived from Warlord Games this morning, so it's off to the races again.
Kelvin and I are aiming for 500 point armies to start with. Consequently, I'm looking at the new Tyranid codex with a view to coming up with a reasonable number of Tyranids to paint over the summer.
So, here goes with the initial army list, which helps me to establish what I need to paint/assemble:
Tyranid Prime with Barbed Strangler and Scything Talons (90pts), accompanied by:
Tyranid Warriors (2) with Deathspitters (+10pts) and Scything Talons = 70pts
Genestealer Brood (11) = 154pts
Genestealer Brood (10) + a Genestealer Brood Lord (+46pts) = 186 pts
Only 500 points, but it gives me my HQ slot and both basic Troop slots for the army. Plus the Brood Lord can act as an additional synaptic creature once more weak-minded critters like the Termagants get added to the mix. From tiny acorns and all that...
NB: Kelvin has a kickstarter project on the go for an adventure he is writing for Lamentations of the Flame Princess. You can read more about it here. All support greatly appreciated, as there are 19 days left.
