750 Tyranid List

Here is my list for the upcoming escalation league later on this month. I've only played a few 500 point games with Tyranids so if this list sucks please let me know and what I can do to fix it.

Head Quarters:

Hive Tyrant W/ Heavy Venom Cannon
Paroxysm and Leech Essence


Termagants x10

Termagants x10

Tyranid Warriors x3
Scything Talons and Devourers

Genestealers x10
Scything Talons

Heavy Support:



  1. Hey, love the enthusiasm!

    If you don't mind me making a suggestion, 750 is a super low point total to try and pack a tyrant and a trygon in.

    Your Tyrant with HVC is 195 points, and the HVC isn't really that useful.

    For the same point cost, you could grab a Prime with Lashwhip/Bonesword which would wreck the face of just about anything else in such a low-points game, and you'd have enough points left over for a unit of 2 Hive Guard!

    your Prime could go with your Warriors then and everyone could benefit from the Alpha Warrior rule.

    Your main prob with this list is you can't pop transports/tanks/dreads. Those two hive guard would go a long way, and so will the Trygon if you keep him. But I'd suggest that if you can free up the points, rending claws + toxin sacs for the Genestealers would let you glance rhinos to death and make you a much more realistic threat to, say, Terminators, with the armor saves you'd deny.

    Maybe drop 1 stealer to allow the rest to have toxins and get the re-rolls to wound against MEQs with their rending claws.

    For more, please visit me at Men With Toy Soldiers,

    Hope you don't mind the plug :)

  2. Thanks for the input. The major reason I'm trying to squeeze in the Tyrant and Trygon is thats what I have on hand. Lately, I've been trying to take my own advice and "be happy with what I have". I'll defenatly take your suggestions into consideration though, if the wallet allows!
