Kingslayer: Hive Tyrant Tyranids Vs. Njal Stormcaller Space Wolves Warhammer 40K Battle Report- Nights At The Game Table


This weeks matchup a is fierce one! John’s Space Wolves vs.  Ryan’s Tyranids! Both armies have some hard hitting Melee units. While the Space wolves bring fantastic melee specialists, the Tryanids counter this by having more models on the board. This is anyones game at this point and will hinge on who gets the charge first. So, lets take a look at their armies.

Ryan’s List

Ryan’s army has a nice mix of units. He has a decent number of Genestealers which are backed up by some solid firepower from his hive guard. The Broodlord is a melee monster in his own right and can make the genestealers much more effective in combat. This is a solid all comers list that doesn’t have any particular weakness.

John’s List

John’s list is a familiar sight. This list leans on his dreadnoughts for accurate fire support while the wulfen move up to wreak havoc in melee.

To top it off they are absolutely devastating in close combat and will kill nearly anything they come into contact with.
