Blackmoor goes to the LVO rocking 1750 points of Tyranids

Well, back in the day I was quite the Bat Rep maker. I would go to all of my GTs and take a ton of pictures and write detailed battle reports. I have slacked off now that I have the 11th Co Podcast to vent my thoughts, but I seem to have done ok with Tyranids at last weekends LVO so everyone wants to see some more details on my games.

So here it goes! I did not take any pictures thinking that this would not happened, and this is what I get for it.

My list:
1750 points of Tyranids

Hive Tyrant
TL Devourer
Hive Commander

Hive Tyrant
TL Devourer
Hive Commander


30 Termagants w/15 Devourers (Outflanking)

25 Termagants w/12 Devourers (Outflanking)

10 Termagants

Fast Attack
Hive Crone

Hive Crone

Heavy Support


Comms Relay

Here is the strategy:
Hide for turn #1 and hit them hard with everything I have turn #2. 

Although it changes due to the circumstances I start on the table with 2 Hive Tyrants hiding behind the Bastion, the 10 Termagants inside of it, and the Tervigon in some cover. If I can hide them, and they will not get the crap blown out of them, I will start my Hive Crones on the table as well. I outflank the Mawlocs and the large Termagaunt squads. Since I have 10 units I have to start with 5 on the table, and 5 in reserves.

The goal is to fly forward on turn #2 and hit them with 4 flyers, 2 outflanking Termagant squads shooting devourers at them, and then 2 Mawlocs doing what Mawlocs do. That should overwhelm them with targets and they can’t kill everything and I can then assault them on turn #3.

Independant Character's 2014 Hobby Progress Challenge

Oh blog, how I have neglected you! Now that I am on the 11th Company Podcast somewhat regularly I say all I have to say over there, and so I do not have to use my blog as a soap box.

So I have commited to the IC's Hobby Progress Challenge and for the army I am going with Dark Eldar. I love the look of the new models and they will go well with my Harliquin themed Eldar army.

I have been meaning to take part in the last couple of HPCs but I never got around to it so I thought I would give it a try. It is my hope that it will help motivate me to paint some models.

The List:

Baron Von Hellion
12 Hellions w/Helliarch
12 Hellions w/Helliarch
10 Scourges
4 Beastmasters
1 Clawed Fiend
4 Razorwing Flocks
5 Khymerae

The list is not a competitive one, just one to paint some models. Also they have it were your first 1000 points have to be a Zone Mortalis army, and they have special rule of what you can, and can't take. For the next 1000 points you can take vehicles and allies so I get to expand more to where I want to go.
