I figured I would give a listing of what my Hive Tyrant will look like once I have the right materials.

His colors are bleached bone and Chaos Black with a little bit of gore red on the teeth and tail.

This tyrant is winged. It's a must cause I've seen what they can do and it can be horrible.

The main armor is Choas black while the rest of him is bleached bone

His biomorphs are Wings, implant attack and Bio plasma Attack.

his weaponry is a Venom cannon for his bottom limbs and a pair of scything talons for the upper arms.

For the look of evolution I want to replace his tail with something more scorpian like and add bull like horns to his head. note that the evolution stuff is for show purpose only. as for his time in the front lines I was thinking of scaring up where his right eye would be to show it's experiance in battle

At a addition to his HMP of Synapse creature and The horror I will also include Warp field and Psychic scream.

Thus far his total point cost is 196 Im not sure what the point cost would be for the wings so Im guessing he will be some where around the 215 point region.

his stand will consist of mostly gras but I want to add the remants of a human such as skeletel remains.

I haven't come up for a name for this genus of Tyrant as of yet.

any suggestions on this tyrant would be appreciated.

Greetings,

Sumireyu: Holy shiat! Now thats a monster, man even marines wet their armor when facing this yeeper creeper. We'll just have to see how well DorkBoy can sprite Tyranids. Makes me wish I owned the 'nid codex, but I'll wait till the new codex is out at the end of this year (Yup, thats a spoiler.) You could give it an ancient latin name or something like that. If it has wings something like Harpy or Dragon. You could also go for a science name like "Specimen #82: Thats a big frickkin' monster!" As -MOLE- stated Starcraft also has some nifty names.

Great story by the way, but what kind of squad (whcih army?) is mauled to death?

-MOLE-: About Mechcommander 2: Just slam two Long John artillery guns in a Atlas and fill Madcats up with LRM's. Add some shortranged AC's for the extra flavah! Now join a LAN game and shout foul language at your opponent with some extra quotes from movies. (Its the quotes that unnerve the opponent, not the foul language!)

About the weapon sets, you should have told me, because that changes the whole case. (About the vehicle, I bet you made some ultra bad ass VDR vehicles by hearing all this.) Stat line is not essential and a story is optional.


Ah great, just what we need!

KEEP THE HIGH GROUND!

Curse this Emperor damned weather. Its raining for five days straight now. At least we’ve got a roof over our heads and some stoves for food and warmth. Half my platoon is packed round one of the five stoves while the rest guard the boarded up windows, checking to see if they are there. They know we’re here and they are going to kill us all if we don’t kill them first. Bah! Let them come. Who are they? They are the traitors, good citizens who’s faith has been taken away and replaced by hate for the Emperor himself! We call them shit stains, warpwhores and traitors, but they are officially known as cultists.

“Sir! I’ve got movement on the scanner! They’re close those fraggers.” Bronski called out. He’s a good lad. I ought to give him a field promotion to corporal soon. He’s guarding the door with a lasgun and scanner. He peered at the scanner a second more before looking up in shock. “Here they come!” Trooper Bronski cried out. A flurry of lasbolts and autogun rounds impact and ricochet on our position. “Up and ready! Give it everything you got!” I bellow at the men who scramble to a window or hole in the wall and readies their weapon. I stride to the doorway next to Bronski who hands me a spare shotgun. I can see movement in the rain now. “Fire at will!” From the windows and other fire points a steady stream of lasbolts is fired at the unseen enemy. A few meters to my right I can hear the platoon’s Autocannon cycle its first round into the chamber. Corporal Dankin, the gunner, depressed the trigger and made wide sweeping arcs with the barrel as he fired a steady rippling stream of high velocity death at the enemy. To my left the platoon’s heavy bolter coughed into life, firing heavy calibre mass reactive shells with the sound of small thunderclaps at the enemy. This should be enough to keep the enemy away. They’d be dead before our ammo runs out. They’d be...

A explosion from behind pulled me out of my victorious thoughts. As I turned to see what at first thought was a mortar impact was something far more worse. Tunnelers have breached us from below. “Frag!” I scream in panic as I raise the shotgun and blast the first purple robed cultist from his feet. “Evens keep up the suppressing fire, unevens suppress this shithole!” I rack the slide of the shotgun and blast another traitor. “Get a fragging grenade launcher up here right now! It want this hole sealed!” Besides me trooper Beck tries to bring his flamer to bear but gets a knife slammed in his throat. I slam the killer away and reach for my chainsword and in a wordless cry of hate start hacking at the enemy. Besides me troopers started stabbing and beating with their lasguns and short swords, they to shouted cries of hate, fear and anger as they butchered or were butchered. After two minutes of frantic and bloody close combat we managed to stem the tide. I limp over the hole and pull a frag grenade from my webbing. “Krak grenades at the double! Seal this hole now!” Besides me Bronski dropped an entire bag of krak grenades in the hole and backed away. “Right! Ease! Fire in the hole!” I pull the pin and drop the green grenade. Three seconds later the entire building rocks on its foundations as the frag grenade sets of the krak grenades. I gave a grim smile as Bronski stood next to me. “Sir?” I pointed to the sealed hole and the gore pattered ceiling and walls. “When we dropped the grenades there were still infiltrators in the tunnel. I could hear them cry out in terror and fear.” I turned and looked at the charnel house what was just before an Imperial position. The floor was slick with blood of the dead and wounded. Troopers were checking if the traitors were really dead with bayonets and pistols. Wounded were pulled out and treated first aid while the dying were given last rites.

Victory?

It was our victory, but paid in blood. I’ve lost twelve good men and another seven are out of action for a while. The next day we were ordered to fall back to the main compound. There we remained for several weeks until the new reinforcements came in the form of the Cadian 13th and a full company of Imperial Fists. The bloody recapture has begun...

(This story is set in the battle for Vogen described in the Codex: Cityfight. One of the most brutal cityfights in the history of the Imperium were Cadians fougth against brutal Night Lords and cultist faction in a battle to recapture the city. The Cadians won it in the end!)

Ok Lieutenant Brookman, I'll post the stats of Commander Arsh here. Here's the special rules (because there is also the official rules : a commander with the wargear directly from the codex.)
I'll post the fluff later.

LORD COMMANDER ARSH

WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
6 5 4 4 3 6 4 10 2+

Pts : 250

A Night Drinkers army of more than 2000 pts can be led by the Commander Arsh. He count as a QG choice and blah blah blah...

EQUIP : The Claws of Omega, Frag and Krak Grenades, Crux Terminatus, Jump pack, Purity Seals, Iron Halo, Death Mask.

The Claws of Omega : The origins of these lighting claws has been long lost. They have been used by the Commanders of the Nights Drinkers from its foundation.
One of them have a storm bolter mounted on its gauntlet and can been fired normally (the other one used to have one too, but have been lost) and they give a +1 I to its user (included in the stats).

Fearless : Arsh never flee, he can't make a voluntary retreat, it also aplies to any squad he join.

Commanding presence : In the start of each turn you must decide if the Commander Arsh tries calm himself and his units, or in contrary unleash his fury. Declare your choice before rolling the red thirst tests. In the first case you can reroll any 1 result. In the second case the unit move following the rules on a result of 1,2 or 3.

Well it's basically, Commander Dante with a different wargear and Red Thirst control. Suggestions ?

He's usually have an honor guard of 4 veteran, and a sanginary priest. Jump packs and power weapon for averyone.
The honor guard have a lighter gray color scheme, with black knees and elbow plates, their helmets "faces" are black too, the shoulderpad border is white, the sergent have a black left shoulderpad, the priest have is white, shoulderpads border is black, and the knees, elbow and face is black.
And Commander Arsh's "face" is smooth (Like the Iron Warrior's style even if it has nothing to do with these heretics) and white.
I'm pretty sure that nobody have understood. If you haven't I'll make a pic.

Only thing I hate about playing as Tyranids is they no longer have any transports!I remember that they made two types but they only made them for one year then discontinued them...That and the fact that GameWorkshop got tired of people whinning about tyranids and enforced the "Shoot The big one" Rule.

I mean truely what is worse? A swarm of flesh and bone creatures even though terribly strong yet mortal or a legion of Necron who can revive during battle!?

also I decided to show case one of the hero's from the Tyranid Codex. Yes they have hero's aka Champions.

Old One Eye (If I would of had 10 more bucks he could of been mine :( )

Ws Bs S T W I A Ld Sv Pts
4 2 10 6 4 2 D6+1 10 2+ 164

Bio-Weapons Scything Talons and specially mutated Gigantic crushing claws (D6 attack in close combat +1 if chargeing)

Special rules- Tyranid Monstrous Creature, Gigantic Crushing Claws, Regemerate ( At the end of each Tyranid turn Old one eye regains 1 wound to it's total of 4 if it is killed mark it's spot roll D6 at end of turn if 4 or high it gets back up with 1 wound remaing 1-3 he stays down)

genus is Carnifex

you must have a 1,500 or less point army to have this bad boy in your ranks. ONE MODLE PER ARMY he is a heavy support choice.

Here is the little info it gives on how Old one eye was found.

"It must have been buried in the ice for centuries, perhaps since Hive Fleet Behemoth crashed on the shores of Macragge, perhaps longer. The thing was hideous to look upon, and obviously dead as Savlar. Some heros of the Imperium must have stuck a plasma pistol in it's eye before being torn apart, leaving a scorched crater as big as my head. We burned it out of the ice and secured it to our trans-crawler, back at Cannis there was a amnesty on Tyranid specimens for adeptus Mechanicus and we reckoned we could get a mammoth bounty for it. Halfway back the crawler started rocking and horrible cracking, screaming noises came from the back. Now Im no space Marine, neither were jax or Kardre, and I'm not stupid either. We just jumped out and ran. The thing was quick though, I was the only one that made it back."

Last testimony of Ariul Horst, Archaeo-pirate

Whenever Tyranids infest a planet you know one thing for certain: You're doomed... Unless there are some magical space marines around with black armour (Deathwatch, not Black Templars!) nobody can stop them! You can do two things: Flee and duke it out in space with a large fleet or trying to kill them of on the surface of the planet. Remember the invasion of Macragge? Though the Ultra Marines survived their first company is utterly destroyed.

Necrons are in my opinion a bit to god like. Most of the troops in a Necron army are: Fearless, able to revive and have super weapons that can knock out tanks with ease. Then there's that monolith thing that can pop up anywhere on the battlefield with the abilty to f*ck up tanks and teleport even more Necrons in.

Tyranids are a nightmare to face for a Guard commander like me. It's not the "Oh, your men are sooo puny shit I always hear from fragging marine players" but try holding out against an entire army of claws and rending teeth! Sure the shooting phase will take out several models, but in the end they will hit the line like a ton of bricks. I find the "shoot the big one" thing, though for 'nid players risky, a ideal way of still getting the upper hand, especially for weak WS armies like Guard and Tau. (Though a squad of Guardsmen could still beat the shit out of a Firewarrior unit :D)

Fear not, rumours has it that a new Tyranid codex will be out soon (Soon is a GW term for "2 years or less") but I don't know what kind of changes there will be.

Sadly Im going to have to rebuy most of the stuff for my army because I got tired of painting them and my dogs got into my room...The Tyranid Hive fleet Found true terror in the mouth of my dogs lol only a few remain I have a few of my guants left 3 ripper swarms 1 warrior and 12 genestealers. Thankfully I never took my Tyrant or his guard out of their box.

but I got to thinking and this whole hive fleet will be seen for their evolution over time all beings will have the scorpian like tails but only the higher ups will have the horns.

The name of the hive fleet will be T-1079

as for the new genus they will be known as tremor

Tremor Hive Tyrant
Tremor Warriors
Tremor Guants

This genus is named by their strange behavior of slamming their tails on the ground before battle causeing slight tremors across the surface.

Mercy? What is Mecry? Does it taste like Bone Marrow!?

I must give praise to all the marine players out there for their determanation and quick thinking. I have seen alot of Games where the marines are out numbered and almost ground to the bone but yet manage to fight on to victory in the worst conditions. I've noticed that the space wolves seem to enjoy this type of setting the most.

Even though Tyranids come in full force with no mercy I have seen many a marine go head on with only their boltgun and a few grenades and wipe out a small portion of the swarm before meeting a grizzly but honorable death.

To the marines I salut you for such a well fought battle and the fact you taste so much better pissed off meh heh heh.

its a good site, but you could make it better by joining the NG fat-net, it's in your login page, all you have to do is put some html stuff on the bottom of you'r page and you can get rankings and stuff on NG.

hey LT. Brookman, sry i haven't responded, my account was stolen and it took me a while to get it back.
about those stories i ain't very good @ making stories, so if you don't mind i won't make one.
hey why don't we see if we can get together or somthing, to have a fight, that is if we are all close enough to eachother(probably not but it was a nice idea).

yes well no matter what sum marine players saybout ur army it would still suck to be on the other side of that new fire support u talked about on page 3(of posts)

slso there's been alot of marine bashing lately >: |
i'd like to remind every one-

I come with a cry of help. I feel the need for Warhammer and 40K players to unite, to put aside the petty rivals between our armies and unite!

and Sumireyu, marines taste better pissed cuz by then we're covered in left over gore of ur Tyranids. gives us a lil seasoning. also nice new sig Brookman, i assume u have sumthin against megaman lol :). an how r the sprites coming? u gonna tell us about ur big plan soon?

the trouble is having a realistic enemy.in mine i was gonna fight Tyranids, but it woulda been a small force(fat chance) so i gotta think up sumone else to kill in mine.

hey why don't we see if we can get together or somthing, to have a fight, that is if we are all close enough to each other(probably not but it was a nice idea).

i live in Florida an i'm pretty sure at least one of u is from a different country.

About the logo I'll be short. It's hard to get an central idea for this, so lets get a central agreement for this.

Think of this: When I scream Warhammer 40.000! What is the first thing you see?

Just give me a straigth short answer.

What I see before me is a dark gothic image of Cadians fending of the Tyranids. Thats 40k for me, dark, evil and unforgiving. It reminds me of the GW motto: Remember! In the 40k universe there are no good guys!

The logo would be best in black and white, but with a space marine. Thats the first thing most people will think of when they hear the word Warhammer 40.000. In my case a Ultramarine. These guys are from the most neutral chapter around.

But, this is a group. Let's press the issue and throw in those ideas!

I've got nothing against Megaman, I just needed a easy target. But as soon as there are more sprites I'll change it to a Space Marine for fun. Only the marine won't feel the bolt hitting him. (He would probably reply with something like: Har har har, very funny. Quit before I get all evil on your ass...)

As for my magenta level project.

Have you guys ever heard of the word combination "Spritecomic?" Here's an example of one of the best around!

That’s what I'm aiming at with all these sprites. Since the beginning of the summer vacation I've been churning out and refining my story designs I made while at school and in the vacation. At first my "plot" was to create a series of sprite movie based on my stories, linking them together as episodes to create a running story from multiple POV (points of view). But seeing as flash wasn't that easy I thought it would be and the chance that most people here on Newgrounds in general aren't waiting for a dramatic series, but more or less waiting for "Stickslayer XIII", "Dress up *Insert name of famous movie actress who poses naked here*" or "Ultra Gore Bloody Supah Deathmatch Which Is Not A Dragon Ball Z Rip-off Like The Rest!" It would be probably be blammed by 13 year olds. (Yes, I am a pessimistic person)

But anyway, I've been seeking council with DorkBoy and he agreed to sprite for the comic. As for the main story itself, it's unknown to me as of yet. I have some humorous and serious scenes penned down and sketched out, but they need to be placed in the correct line of events.

The project has been christened "Heroes of the Imperium" just as my previously ditched flashproject. It won't just be featuring the lackeys of the Emperor, but almost every other race in the 40K universe (Uhm, except for squats, I totally hate squats.) hence I asked what your main character in your army looks like, some for cameo's, others for a serious part in the story line.

(This is not just a project for fun and entertaining people, but also as a personal test, to see how well my plot and writing skills really are.)

This I already know:
+ The Tyranid warriors of Sumireyu have an interesting genus that has a cool morale effect. These will be encountered many times throughout the comic (With your permission of course.) by the Ordo Xenos and Space Marines as they wish to examine and try to terminate this Hive fleet.
+ The Space Marine commanders and warriors with the crapload of equipment you stated will be used. They won't die or anything (that) bad will happen to them. They'll get to blow some shit up and slay some baddies and one or two will play a role in the storyline as they accompany a Inquisistor or one such important character.
+ The Space Marines will get most of the glorious battle, but, seeing as they have little emotion left they are not the greatest material for emotional scenes and such.(Though I have read the two Ultra Marines books about Uriel Ventris, Space Marines must remain the emotionless warriors who alone can stop the darkness!) Hence the Imperial Guard, civilians and Sisters of Battle will provide more of a humane side to the slaughter. (But not with the usual "I love you Sister Merity!")
+ The wanderer will also be a important character, but he's classified for now. Or else I'd give away spoilers. All I can say is that he carries a crapload of weapons and gear (Sniper rifle as you already saw, a powers word, bolt pistol and bionics.)

What I wish to know:
+ Input from you guys is much wanted. Anything is helpful! Marine names, planet names, Traitor names (as you can notice I'm really bad at inventing names of my own. So, if you hate a guy or gal, let me know, he'll probably die in a horrible and painful 40k death!), psychic powers (Don't over do though), human factions (I.E. Such as the Kell-Morian mining company)
+ Storyline suggestions? Or just a cool idea for a single comic? Let me hear it.
+ Idea for comical relief? A comic can't be all serious and blood and gore, it also needs some comical relief once in a while. (Though blood, gore and a joke usually get along nicely? Brother Cloten anybody?)

As of yet, its all still in the planning process. DorkBoy is still busy spriting but also has to go to school soon and has a job besides that. I cannot promise a exact date of when this all will begin I'm afraid.

If I can get a good beginning around the end of autumn its go time, at the utmost around Christmas.

As for then, please send me any kind of idea's possible. Anything is helpful.

Until then!

What I meant with shooting the Marine is this little statistic. It takes around 30 lasguns in rapid fire range to take down a single space marine (Thats 60 shots, but they have to roll to hit, which is a 50% chance of hitting the marine. Now comes the saving throw. Whee! Look at all the dice roll, it must be about forthy...) So how much harm can a single laspistol do? Not much with Space Marine. He's only annoyed, hence the "Har har har, very funny. Now quit it before I get all evil on your ass..." thingy.

If it was a evil Necron, I'd grab a plasmapistol and roast his shiney ass!

Think of this: When I scream Warhammer 40.000! What is the first thing you see?

Just give me a straigth short answer.

k well i think of space wolves ripping up chaos space marines on an abandoned hive world.

but we could have something like a bird's eye view of a massive battle with all 6(that what i think it is anyway, let me see..:Space marines, tyranids, necron, Imperial Guard, Tau, Chaos space marines) facing eachother.

hey people, me and a friend of mine(who also does WH40k) have thought up a new WH40k species and my friend, wjhos real good at drawing, has made some sketches. i'll see if i can scan some in. but don't laugh(please) and we've thoguht of a name: (don't laugh) triplasmoids. what you think of it?

Be my guest they will prove a challnge lol and Im glad you find them interesting....most people just go straight off the bat trying to figure out how to kill my creations before even seeing their pure potential in battle. ( Im a penicle and Paper RPG player too )

+ Idea for comical relief? A comic can't be all serious and blood and gore, it also needs some comical relief once in a while. (Though blood, gore and a joke usually get along nicely? Brother Cloten anybody?)

All I can say is "What truely goes through the mind of a tyranid who will be abosrbed back into the hive mind."

Guant "Here we go again back and forth spewed and sucked jesus this is sounding like a porn flick...anyone seen my speedos!?"

k..nice idea but why a chaos space marine clock? you're like lt.brookman you don't understand the way of the space marine, see all space marines are powerfully inhanced, so normal heros would become so much extra powerful that they need all of those weapons to satisfy their armies and weapons list, or otherwise they would look like shit, especially space wolves who need to see their commander first into battle, crazy idiots!but very dangerous.....
