So the Codex is out and this is my first list I've hammered out. We start with Two Trygons in reserve with hormagaunts and genestealers as well as rippers and the Flyrant with Scythes of Tyran. The rest sets up in the backfield laying down firepower. Malanthrope gives shroud and Nurothrope casts catylist on exocrines. Termagants are for screening. everything in the behemoth detachment that needs to make a charge has adrenal glands meaning we only need a 8 inch charge re rolling failed charges (except for genestealers who cant have them for some reason). So far the list has preformed fairly well making my friends space marine army fear the great devourer. Any suggestions welcome.

Its probably pretty tricky, but see if you can fit a unit of 6 Hive Guards into that list. Kronos Hive Guards with the shoot twice stratagem will absolutely DELETE armies off the field. Also, since your opponent cant even shoot at them if you deploy them properly out of LOS, they are nearly unkillable the entire game long. Believe me, I've seen games where the other player literally autoloses because they cant ever reach the 6 Hive Guards hammering aways at their army.

I've been rolling some dice and you're right they do delete armies and units off the table. The problem is finding room in the list. What would you suggest taking out for 6 hive guard?

Have you thought of substituting the Exocrines for 3 units of 3 Hive Guard? I know it's a drop in toughness and wounds, but it would allow you the option of fielding an additional threat that would have to be chewed through for the same 432 pts you would pay for 2 Exos and would allow you to target units out of LOS @36" if you choose the Impaler cannon which means you will nearly always have the chance to shoot at something and whittling down threats.

Even so, it looks like a pretty solid list.

We've done some point crunching and playtesting and came up with this new list. I have taken out both exocrines and replaced them with some hive guard. I also played with the hive tyrant loudouts making one anti tank and the other anti infantry. Any thoughts on this new list?
