So, when the new Tyranid codex came out back in January 2010 it had several effects on me.
Most of them unpleasant.
It let me down in a big way. I had all these models and then had to go out and buy even more models, because they pretty much outdated a chunk of the ones I had.
I had a magnificent Nerd Rage (and people who know me can attest to this, please don't) and stopped playing wargames for about 6 months. I then slowly got back into things, enjoying my hobby more as I knew it was something I wanted to do, something I really enjoyed.
I haven't looked back since then... not until this months White Dwarf. The new Tervigon / Tyrannofex model looks stunning.
So here I am blogging about how I am going to start this new army... this will be my third start of a Tyranid force, and fingers crossed the way I am going to do it should work better rather than worse.
1. Get my hands back on a codex
2. Find out what people do and do not use on the net
3. Build a list using the stuff people don't use
4. Scrap that list in favour of one that works
5. Buy the models in small manageable batches
I intend to build my 'Nid army one step at a time, posting what I have bought and then posting again a completed model/unit before moving onto the next item on my list.
The end aim is for me to build a list I am happy with, so I will have some decently painted models, and I think that by buying models slowly things should work out a little better for me.
So any advice, hints or tips as to what to use or avoid in the 'Nid codex, feel free to drop me a comment!
