Tyranids need threat saturation but they have to be able to apply pressure to your whole opponent's army or they'll break.  They don't have that one unit that makes everything else work, they have to work together to get anything done.  Two Stealer Broods is a good start, but they have to apply pressure Turn 1 and Turn 2.  I like the Swarmlord and a Trygon for this.  Don't Deep Strike the Swarmlord.  She has to hang out with the rest of the army, do damage no sooner than Turn 3 and if you want her to live, she needs Guards.  But on the plus side, if you take a Trygon and Swarmlord, you can drop the Broodlords.  They can't keep up when you get clever on how to use Stealers.

Your Heavies can drop a Malanthrope and an Exocrine.  You don't need to go so hard on a Character model that hides behind the Exos anyway, and three Exos is just too many points.  Biovores are my personal bread and butter.  They limit your opponent's movement phase if you miss and deal Mortal Wounds.  They synergize great with a Malanthrope and Flyrants.

Flyrants are supposed to die now.  Make them cheap, make them sacrificial.  They're support units.  Most of their damage will be dealt with Smite and when you add Biovores into your army, that's a good amount of guaranteed Wounds being shoved onto something.  Talons are still helpful if you can spare the points but honestly, they don't want to do much more than fly overhead, provide Synapse to the bugs that need it and cast Smite.  Monstrous Rending Claws are free and keep the Flyrant below 200pts.  I still always run atleast one just for support purposes.

Nids have big access to Mortal Wounds and I like to focus on that when picking how to synergize my list.  Pushing Damage through has to be your top priority and lock down what you can't kill as a secondary option.  Honestly, I've also been considering a Tyrannofex as a big threat but I have yet to test that one in particular.  Swarmlord casting Catalyst on it though might be something that steals pressure away from your Exocrines, which would be a big deal.

Discussion: THE LIST / Re: 2000 point tyranid list- still learning 8th please help

What do you suggest for a tyranid list. I'm still learning and I know that exocrine are good and genestealers shred infantry. I've tried flyrants and they die too easy. I've tried drop pod with Swarmlord and it does kill things but not enough to make him worth the points. I've tried tervigon with termagaunts brood and the tervigon die too quickly. I just csnt seem to make a list that is solid.

Well it's not great.  Your most Damage is 2 from beasties that are only moderately survivable and you don't have the real threats to make your opponent shoot at other things.  You've served their target choice on a silver platter.  Heavy weapons into the Exocrines, everything else into the Genestealers.  There's no choosing what needs to be dealt with first, it's all the same units.

You have good table coverage with the Stealers, but Stealers can't lock down Fly or Super Heavies, and they do get bogged down with screen units if your opponent knows what's going on.  Deployment tricks are a must with atleast one of the units and you're just coming from the one direction.  Bubble wrap and proper fallbacks will limit the damage you can do.

This is just a spam army and as with all spam armies, there will be matchups where you slaughter because your opponent didn't bring enough tools for your strategy and matchups where you will literally get nothing done because your own toolbox is severely limited.  Things like AdMech, Knights, Conscripts and Mortarion Death Guard I expect will be hard for you to really deal with just to name a few.

I enjoy your models posts and battle reports-every time I see them, I'm like THAT is how 40K is played- nice paint models, great terrain, and a narrative battle.

Thanks for posting!

This is really great! Very happy to see you back at it. I was looking through my email in the interim, and see that you closed down the mailing list around the time of the release of eighth. It said that you were moving it over to the Warmaster newsletter. I don't seem to be getting the newsletter and can't seem to find where to sign up for it. Is it still a thing? If so, how do I get it?

No word from YouTube, and I suspect there won't be. Just a generic email- account closed, no way to appeal, no way to even reply.
