and orks can shoot (*cough* lootedtank *cough*) like a mutha.

Tyranids, their only long range equivalent is maybe a Biovore?

'[deepunkown']i say nids beacuse ork is the only CC (close combat) army in DoW and we all know how to counter it...so we really need another good powerfull CC race

True more cc's would be good but like the orks we'd soon no how 2 counter them, and no1 would play them anymore. BwsTom

Tyranids can't be countered perfectly. THEY'RE FUCKING TYRANIDS! THE ENTIRE POINT IS THAT THEY ADAPT TO THE ENEMY'S STRATEGY, STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES! They're not just an easily counterable CC army, DEY lz 73h pwnz!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, using logic, Tyranids would be a great addition. Who wouldn't love an army which can shoot decently, scythe hack and rend decently, and do both moderately well at the same time? (IG die-hards, probably.) But I digress - Tyranids can be specialized like Eldar or can be versatilized (I'm not sure if that's a word) like the Space Marines. Of course, the TT issue still exists on whether specialisation or versatilization is the way to go, yet I'm going to have to agree on the former in terms of DOW. in Dow, you really can't use all of a unit's skills (melee and gunny) at the same time. If you're in close combat, you can't fucking shoot. Yet it begins to differ from the table top here in that other units can shoot into a close combat!

So thus the tyranid strategy would favor a slightly overpowerment of Spinegaunts, Hormagaunts, Carnifex (plural) and Genestealers, with a shitload of Zoes to blow the crap out of anything. (Zoanthropes: For you TTs who 4get the stat line, WS 3 BS 3 S 4 T 4 A 2 W 2 I 4 Ld 10 Sv 2+ and the most likely taken TT power is Warp Blast, either focused or unfocused (Assult 1, Strength 10 ap 2 or Assault 1 blast, Strength 5 AP 3). From the Old Codex. BUT I DIGRESS AGAIN.

The point is, Zoes can blow the crap out of nearly anything. So we know that as of now, the Tyranid Modders have in mind a specialized feel.

Relic has 1 specialized race and 3 versatile races. And IG just- "Left! Left! Left! Right! Left!"...don't try to specialize but aren't versatile. One would assume the feel of a nice specialized race would be good. (Assault Marines aren't "specialized" to da maxxxxxxxxxx0lz in that they have fucking boltpistols! No guns is true grit!)

So hacking away with pilferers of genetic material and blasting away with femininely-named psykers seems the way to go.

I've explained the strengths and weaknesses of Tyranids somewhat.

Now it's time to marinate teriyaki style, roast rotisserie style, and then microwave to completion the Necrons.

I personally think Necrons would be a bad addition! We've all seen eldar and we've all come to know that Banshees could overwhelm and overpower Necrons in melee! Orks, same thing. Chaos, jump infantry. Space marines, jump infantry.

"However there are close combat specialists among the necrons!"

Well there are a lot fucking more which exist amond the Nids. I think it's time to give the bad bolter noises and animations a rest and instead pick up the hissing, gurgling and screeching of the race which with no doubt should be chosen.

I'll leave you on this note - take a look at the poll results and see for yourselves.

As for now I'm leaving this thread in order not to waste more time writing long winded responses.

Tyranids would still be so much better than necrons, but coz necrons are in W.A. its 99% certain they'll do necrons next.

How about both? If relic leaves the races alone and really hauls ass, they can do it. (Nid bases and model quality should both be SMALL/LOW!)
