I was thinking about the Tyranid list the other day and surprised to see there aren't more suggestions of how to change it.

Just some random thoughts...

1. Reduce the cruisers to a base point of 60pt
2. Since cruisers are growing to be Hiveships, have them be independent of Synapse. Leadership 6 for purpose of command checks, still makes the Hiveship synapse potentially helpful.
3. Allow cruisers to purchase a Synapse addon, maybe shorter range? 15cm?
4. Allow escorts to fall back to Leadership 6 for Insticctive Checks if outside the Synapse range, they're likely to fall back on instinct, but have a chance.
5. Eliminate the requirement of Hiveships/Escorts (I dislike any fleet that requires escorts or battleship class. Dark Eldar, Tyranids, SG Tau, etc Just a mechanic to sell more minis) :)
6. Oh, give the cruiser launch bay capability if the requirement of Hiveships is removed

I don't think you should be force in Hive ships necessarily but it doesn't bother me much anyways. But if you do take Hiveships then you should have to take 6 Escorts. I don't care if there drones or whatever but a Hiveship should have little escorts protecting it.

Over in the SG forums I think the High Admiralty is revised lists. Last I heard there was a new FAQ and they were pounding out Space Marines lists.

If you take a vanguard Nid list you don't have to have hive ships.

They did change things to force any hiveship to take 6 of the escorts (not the kraken) This wasn't to sell minis, but to further eliminate the whole 3 uber hive ships no one can scratch and kraken fleet lists.

Besides, lets be realistic here, who in their right mind actually buys the minis for the BFG nids? 95% of the fleets I've seen have been constructed from 40k nid bits and look far better :)

Ok, cruiser aside, I actually like the Hiveship miniature. :)

I like the Hiveship and the Escorts the Cruiser is butt ugly tho. And there are some great conversion out there. But I'm lazy and didn't even buy the Nid fleet to start. Just ended up in my game room.
