Feasting on the souls of unworthy opponents

Hey folks!

A Tyranid friend of mine was telling me that he was getting massacred in a game the other night, which confuses me because I can't see how a Tyranid player can lose if they understand how Tyranids work.

-Tyranids show up at a world.
-They eat everything.
-They poop out more Tyranids.
-They eat more stuff.
-When the world is entirely biomass, they ship back to orbit and move on.

If a Tyranid player sticks with this fundamental understanding of Tyranid behavior, you can't lose. Let's say that you put down your tyranid army against an enemy chaos marine army. Do the same thing that Tyranids do.

-Show up at the table.
-Start eating your opponents models.
-Poop out plastic-infused reinforcements.
-That former Greater Nurgle is now a brown Carnifex!
-Rinse and repeat as needed.
-When your opponent's army is entirely biomass, you've won the game.

Plot spoiler: You may win earlier in the game if your opponent and his army flee.

A spiky chaos model traveling down your intestine (let alone your esophagus) is not going to be good for your health. In fact I'd say that it would be downright lethal. Which would pretty much stop your world eating hive fleet dead on its tracks. Cool idea though!

I know some lists are described as poop, but this is taking it a bit far. Though it might improve any Grey knights lists you consume/excrete.

You're not. If you're worried about your opponent using 'fake' rules, you're having fun the wrong way. This hobby isn't about rules. It's about buying Citadel miniatures.

If this wasn't an original idea by me, I had no idea. Give me a link. I have always come to Dakka for entertainment.

It got locked for being in the wrong place instead of being relocated. I created it in the correct place.
