Preview Video Bat Rep: NEW Tyranids vs. Ultramarines

We just got done filming a video bat rep! The NEW Tyranids vs. Ultramarins! This game will air at 9am PST on Monday morning, but for now, take a look at the lists and make your predictions!

This list features the Jormungandr hive fleet adaptations and Warlord Trait on what many would consider to be an unconventional Nid list. It features units built for melee and shooting who walk up the field with both a -1 to be hit thanks to the Malanthropes and +1 to their saves due to the Hive Fleet adaptations. It also utilizes the Jormungandr tunnel networks to potentially bring a large number of units in from reserves.

Pablo’s Ultramarines list features a lot of no LoS required firepower, Bobby G and a Land Raider Achiles. Kind of an off-the-wall list, but interesting and it certainly packs a punch!

            I like the idea of including a patrol of a Neurothrope and 1-2 Rippers for guaranteed Psyker disruption, as well.

            As Kronos, of course.

    Definitely an interesting tyranid list, Reece. No Swarmy, genestealers, or hormagaunts this is actually one Im curious about. RG style list. Glad to see you dusting off those trygons but I feel like you are missing out without givng them the behemoth hive fleet. Those 2 squads of gaunts could tie up a lot of stuff on a charge and melt some armor. Pablos Achilles and Thunderfire is going to rip right through the cover bonus IMO so youre really gonna need to get those charges off.

      Yeah, exactly. I was trying to show people that you don’t have to take the “good” units and still make a solid Bug list. Plus, Jomungandr has a lot of tricksy stuff it can do which is fun.

        Loving the short BRs keep em up but definitely leave up some uncut ones for people who want to see the full tactics once in awhile as summaries dont always show the full mechanic to how you are using your units. Both are perfect for when I sot down to paint up a new unit.

    I had some one point out to me today that biovores of kronur miss the give you a spore mine of kronus. You doing need rippers just spore mines.

    Look forward to seeing this fight as well. Haven’t got to play much yet. Liven my gaming lif though you guys right now. Keep it up.

    Yes! A Tyranid battle report without the Swarmlord! Hooray! I’m glad there are more Tyranid players out there that can enjoy a competitive battle without Swarmy. Now if we can find some Ultramarine players that will go to battle without Bobby G…

      I love me some Swarmy, lol, but you don’t have to take him.

      And Pablo has actually never played a game of 8th ed where he didn’t use Bobby G, lol.

    How is the thunderfire cannon 121, 55 for the cannon 45 for the techmarine. 2 servos flamer and a plasma cutter I get 140?

      Techmarine Gunner is base 26 points + 40 for harness + 55 for cannon.

        Really must be missing something in the space marine codex

          There is a difference a techmarine and a techmarine gunner. The gunner is 26 points and is listed in the heavy support section. Pablo is accurate with his TFC at 121 pts.

            yeah i found it, never noticed it before. definitely pulling it out and putting it on the table now. i think it is better than a whirlwind

    Why is the tervigon 225 points? I thought Pablo said they were free

    Reece,
    Whats the sauce on the song from like 22:50 to 26:30?

    Also I liked your thinking with the tervigon. I still think it is a bit overpriced but my bet is that GW really really did not people to be able to spam them and get a whole bunch of free units. Seems pretty solid anyway.

      They don’t make units for free, they replenish existing units for free. And I don’t know on the song, that is all Mariana.
