Postby Astroth » Fri Feb 07, 2014 12:26 am

So just found out about you guys and when i heard about this event i wanted to join.

Just got hold of a bunch of tyranids that i just primed white (pics will come soon)

And here is my list 1000pts.

Hive Tyrant; Wings regeneration, 2x Dev DONE
Image
Termagaunt x10 2 devourers DONE
Termagaunt x10 DONE
Image
Hormagaunt x10 DONE
Hormagaunt x10 DONE
Image
Warriors x3 1xVC DONE
Image
3x Zoanthropes Februari Challenge DONE
Image
3x Hive Guard Impaler Cannons DONE
Image
3x Venomthropes March Challenge DONE
Image

Pretty sure it wont do well but alot of cool models running about!

I also have unpainted a Carnifex, 3 more warriors, 4 Rippers 10 genestealers and a Trygon.

Oh and with these rules can i use my Trygon? I Really love the model for it but i read somewere that monsters with a bigger base then 60mm round cant join?

Pics with date and stuff will come up later today (stuck at work atm)

This is my inspiration
