Hey All i have been experimenting with Tyranid soup combinations in an effort to shore up pit falls in my Nid army.

This list is going against an ork list. No idea what it will be but its going to be orky.

The snipers deal with the command structures of my opponent. I use the Grand-sires gifts to dish out 3 relics. The locus and the Patriarch are tag teaming denying over-watch. Might from beyond turns the patriarch into a battle cannon. Depending on who i am fighting the gift from beyond will go on the Sanctus or the Jackal Alphus. They tend to tag team a target using the turn they arrive to pull off a perfect ambush and hopefully pull down a high value target. The Kellermorph rides in on/with the Flyrant and clears out the chaff turn 2 when they arrive in the back field. Possibly fulling off a perfect ambush with the kellermorph because 20-24 shots is just too good.

Each Broodlord gets a unit of Genestealers and rushes to a target.

Termiguants are just there to deny deep strike and secure back field objectives. the exocrine and the hive tyrant stay within striking range of each other.

14-3CP means i have 11 command points to putz around with mostly dedicated to re-rolling sniper shots of 1. There is a list alteration i have getting rid of the locus and snagging a nexos just to farm points. but the locus feels more "heroic".

The psychic phase is also going to be bonkers. i plan on crushing any huge unit of boys by casting mass hypnosis and horror on them o get -2 to hit. ideally a dead ork leader and -2 to hit will save the genestealers.

No kidding- that’s a lot of psykers!

Do you need 3 broodlords though? Could maybe drop one and squeeze in some devilgaunts or an acid spray tyrannofex for more horde control if you had the models. Other than that it looks fun to play!

When do you/did you play the orks?

Played sunday, it was a close game the whole time. This list is suuupper fun to play. The question about who to give the gift fro beyond sniper rifle has arisen. Also kellermorphs continue to be a showstopper, i need three of these in my gsc lists.

3 broodlords is the right number unless you want to field 10 more genestealers instead on one broodlord. but those broodlords blow up trucks.

The patriarch hunted his warlord and took him down. the flyrant literally only killed 10 grots.

Using mass hypnosis and the horror on the same unit never came up but i am very sure its the way to tear down orks mobbed up just based on how effective -1 to hit is.
