Compiling a Tyranid Library, part 1 - Unit and FOC reviews, list themes

I haven't really liked any of the accumulated tyranid knowledge I've seen on various forums as entries are often outdated (pre- vs post-FAQ), so I decided to compile my own. Keeping this list has been very helpful for me, so I thought it might be worth sharing.

Obviously- all credit should go to the original authors.

++Research Archive part 1 follows++

...Units and FOC reviews

...Army list themes


  1. Good Lord, insane amount of information there! I'm actually considering nids as a 3rd army now. Congrats for converting me from a bug hater!

  2. Yesss - protect the brood... misssion accomplissshed =)

  3. Great job compiling so much advice and information, that's an excellent resource you've provided. It's been a couple years since I did anything with my own 'Nid collection but if I ever get back to them, I know where I'm going to find the help I'd need. Thanks!

  4. Hopefully all of this helps...

    Find some none gaming related stuff in there. But there is stuff by Raptor1313 and some other bloggers.

    There is also the 'Nid reviews by the guys from Dark Future Games. I haven't added their stuff to Imperial Life yet. But you can find it here...


  5. Messanger - thanks for the links; I was planning weaving your responses to gmorts' posts in a future post. This is one of the best ones I have in my list so far:

    I hadn't seen the Dark Future Games reviews - most look pretty good.

    One of these days I'll get around to my meta analysis of all of this analysis /grin

  6. More than happy to help. It was why I went through and collected a bunch of 'Nid articles in the first place... my feeble attempt to counter the stupidz of Warseer and Dakka.

    The more exposure of these articles the better our hobby will be.
