As is my want, i wonder how a nid list without a single upgrade would fare. All have the basics without any purchased upgrades. I can swap out things for free but not if it costs points. am thinking of fielding the following:

Hive tyrant, talons, lash whip, bone sword, 2 guard
This tyrant is 170 points which is pretty good for its capabilities

3 zoanthropes
3 hive guard
3 hive guard

tervigon, cluster spines
tervigon, cluster spines
10 termagants
10 termagants
8 genestealers
8 genestealers

Harpy, Stranglethorn cannon, cluster spines
Harpy, Stranglethorn cannon, cluster spines
11 gargoyles

trygon

How many points does this come to?

I am curious as to how the list will fare without those Psychic powers that synergise with Tyranids.

Those Hive Guard and Zoanthropes will need to work overtime.

Good ambitions Spiv, I say give the list a go - better yet, against someone using the same restrictions! Let's see how much we rely on upgrades.
