So there were more Daemon players than Blood Talons......... there were perhaps as many Sisters armies as Blood Talons.....

Off the top of my head i know there was 1 sister, and one BA with talons, he ripped up Calvin one game near the end of day 2. So ya, not common in competitive lists. :]

That gottacon list probably includes tervigons and that's a unit I just won't run so no point for me really, but might as well post it so everyone else can see it.

Why the pure distaste for Tervigons? The list looks pretty varied to me.

A. I hate termagants and hormagaunts. Always have. I don't like the look of them and I don't like the idea of painting truck loads of them.
B. Genestealers are what sold me on Tyranids a dozen or so years ago when I started playing. They are my first love.

Tervigons are totally bad-ass models and the rules are fantastic but I just don't think they suit my play-style or the tyranid army I want to make.

A. Ok, I suppose. I like Hormagaunts myself very dynamic looking model right out of the box.
B. So use em, they are in lists that I have seen, and even a few are scary to nearly everything out there.

I would just think it would be avoiding Purifiers, or Long Fangs. Tervigons fill a pretty solid niche, as a pseudo transport, MSU generator, and resilient backfield scoring unit. I mean you build effective lists, and you do win with them so its not as if your handicapping yourself either way. :p

They are dirt cheap though, I would think fitting 1 in wouldnt really change your list or playstyle much at all, and painting up the little dudes wouldnt take too long, I could do it for you. :p

Maybe I'll play-test one. See if I actually hate them or not. FnP on trygons can not be a bad thing.

BTW, and this is totally unrelated, but the fact that you are 13/2/2 and you say nids are broken/underpowered slays me. What a Face

Good dice and good generalship trump lists and codices. We all know that. I get lucky a lot. Look at the dice rolls in our last game? And that's why my dice rolls with Night Lord are like as well. I roll well, my opponent rolls poorly.

Yup. Looking to play some Malifaux but may bring my 'nids just in case. Maybe try a tervigon list...but I really don't want to face 12 missile launchers.

Jon and I will be doing one first, but if it goes quick maybe we can fit another in like last time.
