Revised 2k Tyranid List

Here is my revised Tyranid list based upon lots of recent playtesting. Note that if I drop all the regeneration I have enough points for another brood of five genestealers and bring  my total number of scoring units back up to four (which is most likely what I will do). I am now down to only two mycetic spores. I have dropped the Hormogaunts from the list and the Alpha Warrior now runs with the Warriors - which I really like a lot... it makes those deathspitters a lot better and every little bit counts. I now have a full compliment of three Zoies and have added a brood of three Hive Guard. The Hive Guard are a welcome addition and primarily intended to pop transports and the much hated pysfleman dreadnaught. The army is still just as brutal in melee and is still uses null deployment. Gone are the special characters such as Doom and the Deathleaper... oh well they were a lot of fun but I think this list is more competitive.

Note that a lot of these modifications are based upon advice I received from Hyv3mynd - I didn't incorporate all of his suggestions but definitely the majority of them. I have using the Deathleaper a lot lately and it's an awesome unit for what it brings to the table but I think the Hive Guard are the better choice - especially versus the prevalance of heavily mechanized armies we see so often now.
