Warseer Battle Report: Picture analysis: Tyranids vs Orks, 2500 points.

What a long title! This is from MagicJuggler via e-mail.

Hey. Didn't get to finish the game against Pokeylope, but did this one against Orks. It's rather sad really. 2500 points and I had:

2 Hive Tyrants each with Bonesword/Lash Whip, and Heavy Venom Cannon, and a Bonesword Guard for each. The Tyrants had Paroxysm and Leech Essence.
3 units of 3 Hive Guard
3 Tervigons with Toxin Sacs and Cluster Spines. 2 had Onslaught and Talons. One had Catalyst.
3 units of min-strength Termagants
3 Tyrannofexes with Rupture Cannon/Dessicator Larvae/Cluster Spines

His army consisted of:
A Big Mek
4 Battlewagons
2 units of boyz; one is Ard-boy'd.
A unit of Nob Bikers
A unit of Burnas.
2 Deffkoptas with Buzzsaws and Rokkit Launchas.

He got first turn, plinks a wound off a Hive Guard. This is the end of my Turn 1...see any Nob Bikers? They died to being blasted by Venom Cannons, then torrented down by Impalers. The Deffkoptas died to assault too. And there's enough bubblewrap to keep me shooting for another round or two. He folded that turn anyway. Basically, it's an underrated army against a *very* overrated army, and the results weren't pretty.

Everyone complains that Nob Bikers own and that Tyranid shooting sucks...yet as MJ points out, he can wipe them in one turn. I would like to know how many Nob Bikers there are and there is a heap of terrain on that board lol.

Thanks MJ for this send-in.

No wai, Nob Bikers are totall t3h pwnz0r.

Typical shitty Ork army vs a nice bug list, excellent work. I'd love to see what Warseer says to that.

Did I miss anything from this crappy BatRep? o.O

There were 10 Nob Bikers in the unit.

One of the Battlewagons had a tricked out Nob unit. The other had 15 Burnas. One had 20 Boyz, another had 20 Ard Boyz.

There really wasn't much to it; I had initially expected the game to go longer as the guy had just finished stomping a Tyranid list that went for the 1x Hive Guard/1x Zoanthroape/DOOM OF MALANTAI!!!!!!!!! setup...but that didn't turn out to be the case...
