Warhammer 40k 5th Edition Tyranid Codex - [Free] Warhammer 40k [PDF] [ EPUB] Warhammer 40, is a miniature wargame created by.
The army itself is noted for being able to download a variety of deployment options, including manipulation of the Reserve Rolls, Mycetic Spores, the ability to reroll the table edge from Outflanking, and other options to complement conventional Deep Strike and Infiltration options; the Tyranids therefore have a degree of flexibility in building a force which operates in a manner besides simply lining their force opposite the opponent's guns. Likewise, they possess a fair amount of support units, capable of either buffing or debuffing units as need be, or otherwise acting as force-multipliers to the army as a whole. In melee, the Tyranids operate off numerous cheap infantry, complemented by larger and far pricier Monstrous Creatures; the former are exceptionally point-efficient at taking out enemy infantry, and when properly supported will defeat most anything in close-combat on account of their high initiative and mass of Poisoned attacks. In some cases it is a good idea to make assaults into cover using heavy linebreakers like Trygons since the overwhelming majority of Tyranid units every Troop Choice in the codex lack Frag Grenades. This said, the generally Fearless nature of Tyranids means that if one is not careful, a well-executed multicharge can overwhelm multiple Broods and pile up the No-Retreat Wounds.
Instinctive Behavior: If a unit is not within Synapse range at the beginning of their movement phase, and not falling back or participating in H2H, they must take a Ld test. Pass: The unit acts as normal for the turn Fail: They revert to Instinctive Behavior, depending on type. Lurkers: Unit may not move, must shoot at closest target. If no enemy units are in range or LOS, they Run for the nearest piece of cover.
If already in terrain, they do nothing. Models within 12" of a Synapse Creature count as being within Synapse range and are Fearless. Models within Synapse range do not have to test for Instinctive Behavior. It has the potential to harm enemies in close combat, but only when it is wounded, which means sacrificing the damn thing is its only positive use. The only way this unit could be of use is dependent on how Games Workshop FAQs Acid Blood to work, in which case it might work as a sacrificial gimmick for killing enemy deathstar units, but armies based on gimmicks seldom work.
Ask Lukas the Trickster. Venomthropes: Venomthropes would be kind of a beautiful choice if they weren't in the highly competitive elite slots. Ymgarl Genestealers: The fluff behind the Ymgarl Genestealers doesn't really make a lot of sense.
They're creatures that can, at will, make themselves stronger, thicken their own carapace, or turn their limbs into tentacles, which stretches the limits of plausibility without "lol, warpmagic" explanations. It's a gimmicky way of altering the units' stats, frankly. In any case, they're basically just genestealers that mutate and hide in terrain for deployment. When they appear from reserves, they pop out of the terrain piece that was marked for them and they can assault afterward.
They ambush the way that Lictors ought to, and they wouldn't be a bad choice if the elite slots weren't your best source of anti-tank.
Taking one is a decent choice for most players, even with Hive Guard trying to crowd into all three slots, the disruption they give denying where an opponent can deploy their heavy-weapon infantry in cover is worth it.
There's a reason why Space Wolves choose Wolf Scouts, and that same reason is why one unit of Ymgarls, even a low number of them like , is a decent choice.
Zoanthroapes: This is another unit that any player would be a fool not to consider investing in. They are arguably some of the best anti-armor units in the game right now, using a S10, AP1, Lance attack to punch through nearly any heavy armor on the field.
They also have a S5, AP3, blast template to throw at Space Marines that get too comfortable with their good saves. Three full broods of them can lay down an truly epic amount of mental dakka that will fuck up the shit of everything and anything in front of them. The only drawback to Zoanthropes is that their attacks are psychic, so Psychic Hoods can mess everything up, and that their lance attack is short range, only 18".
They can be dropped into play with pods, though. Troops[ edit ] Genestealers - Genestealers are very solid units. They can easily shred plenty of enemy units up to and including Baneblades if you can get to their rear armor in close combat thanks to rending, high initiative, great weapon skill, and an acceptable number of attacks.
However, despite all this, they aren't really the core player of the army. They come with infiltration built in, so their best use is often to keep the enemy bottled up. A squad or two of flanking Genestealers will cause most players to give pause to spreading out to the edges of the board. Give the Broodlord adrenal glands and it can pop landraiders. All things considered you can't say many bad things about Genestealers. Thankfully, they can be fielded in pretty large numbers, not quite as massive as that of Gaunts, but enough to pretty much swamp anything in front of them.
Almost nothing in the game short of AV 14 armor survives more than one turn when faced with a full genestealer brood with a broodlord. Hormagaunts - Hormagaunts, due to being cheap and having cheap access to poison, are among the most devastating attackers in the Tyranid army.
Per point spent, they deal more damage, survive more wounds, and can even run across the board faster than anything else that can compete with them. Their only major drawback is a troubling susceptibility to No Retreat wounds and a stark lack of frag grenades. However, keep them from fighting with inopportune targets and get them Feel No Pain from a Tervigon and these little bugs will really tear it up on the battlefield.
They can also equip adrenal glands to glance tanks and transports into submission on the charge. Plus, you can field them in absolutely massive broods, rivaling full sized guard platoons in sheer size.
Rippers - Tyranids have numerous traditional weaknesses, among them are blast templates. Rippers, being swarms, take double damage from blast templates. Having a toughness of three, they are morbidly weak to Instant Death as well. To say they are good for anything would be a stretch.
And if your Rippers are running low, just move off into some of your newly spawned Rippers and keep going on. Termagants - Termagants are pretty much nothing compared to hormagaunts and genestealers. Their guns are short range, their ballistic skill is average, they fight as well as Guardsmen in close combat, and their saves are worse. In fact, they cost just as much as a Guardsman does, and since Termagants can't ride transports there isn't much that can be done with them.
However, for every one brood of Termagants downloadd, one Tervigon can be downloadd as a troop choice, and Termagants receive all kinds of irrational buffs from being next to a Tervigon. Therefore, despite their mediocre to poor abilities, they actually aren't uncommon in the 5th edition. Like Hormagaunts, they can be fielded in numbers so large the gameboard will look like an unending sea of bugs.
Warriors - Warriors are also a solid unit, but they have one problem: Instant Death. However, hit their squad with a Demolisher cannon and they all evaporate.
They have access to power weapons, have decent guns, have good weapon skill, and overall have some pretty reasonable options.
It's just not a good idea to make an entire army composed of Warriors since small numbers and being no-brainer targets will hurt them. Fast Attack[ edit ] Gargoyles - Gaunts with wings, effectively. They are, in quite nearly every way, just Termagants with wings. They have the same stats, the same weapons, and the same problem with No Retreat wounds. However, aside from the 12" movement, there is one exception: gargoyles wound enemies during the to-hit rolls as well as during the to-wound rolls.
Every six they roll to hit becomes a wound with armor saves allowed essentially Necron Gauss weapons that allow armor saves and can't get glancing hits on vehicles. Throw in poison and gargoyles become some savage monstrous creature hunters great for fucking over other tyranid armies and chaos daemons. Sadly, they aren't too fantastic against much else; they are really very average models for survivability and output, so while it doesn't hurt to have them around, they also don't always help.
They are, however, an excellent unit for a Parasite of Mortrex to join. Harpies - Harpies are jump infantry models of debatable use. They don't come especially cheap, costing as much as a tervigon, and they aren't very strong or tough for the cost. They come equipped with a twin-linked, S6, large blast and can be upgraded to a twin-linked, S9, small blast, but the S9 gun does less damage on the vehicle penetration chart it is still great for insta-death delivery.
Getting one assaulted would be a disaster, so they're really only as useful as the gun they carry, and that's a matter dependent on your army list. And they're one of the last two units in the army to lack a model so if that affects your choice Raveners - Raveners are very similar to Warriors, but they're faster, have higher initiative, have more attacks, are more fragile, and can't climb stairs.
Ultimately they're ok. They aren't as good at fighting as a swarm of Hormagaunts, aren't as tough as Warriors, and get expensive when equipped with ranged weapons, but their Fleet move and 12" charge range do give them a niche to fill.
Ideally, they're harassers, designed to make unexpected long range assaults into exposed heavy weapons teams or infantry who think they're safely controlling an objective. The main thing to worry about with them is Instant Death and getting caught in the open.
Can't take power weapons and ranged weapons together for some reason. Otherwise nearly identical to Warriors, described above.
Sky-Slashers - Rippers with wings. Not better in any way, but now with the added weakness of taking dangerous terrain checks if they use their jump move while in terrain! The wings almost negate the cover bonus the Rippers get for being swarms. Otherwise, see Rippers, described above. Spore Mines - Floating basketballs that explode when they bump into things.
Also, they deepstrike before anyone deploys. This makes them pretty much useless, since any enemy with any kind of strategic experience will just tank shock them on the first turn.
However, if used with dawn of war deployment, they are essentially a big middle finger to the enemy.
Since they deepstrike before deployment, and in DoW you can't deploy within 18" of an enemy model, you basically create a 36" wide buffer where the enemy can't deploy. Needless to say, annoying as shit. The mines, when they hit, each create a S4, AP 4, large blast, and when they don't hit they will actually land on the field and remain present until they are shot or wandered into. It's not exactly what one would think of as "heavy" support, but it is probably among the best ranged anti-infantry support in the codex.
The only problem is, one has to ask if more anti-infantry is really what one seeks when such is the strength of almost every other unit in the codex.
In Apocalypse games, where long ranged ability becomes crucial due to the much larger average board size, they become far more viable as a way to deal with infantry blobs from a distance, though they lack the Dactylis' balls out firepower, they can be fielded in much larger numbers to swamp the battlefield in pieplates and spore mines. Carnifex: A perfect summary of the Carnifex in 5th edition would be "too expensive.
They have four attacks which they can re-roll to hit and a strength of nine, but their WS of three is pretty average. They can hold their own against basic squads, but one hidden power fist will ruin their day in a heartbeat or lack thereof.
Even against a five man Space Marine Tac Squad, the Carnifex lacks the attacks and accuracy to clean up its enemies before it gets walloped, and a Krak missile or two to soften the beast up will guarantee its death.
The reason for this circumstance is that the Carnifex used to be the go-to unit of the Tyranid codex in 4th edition. However, there is one important thing to consider: nothing dismantles tanks in close combat as well as a Carnifex. It's a poor consolation prize, and while we're at it we'll make it the second unit in the codex with access to frag grenades. The only time toxin sacs will have a positive effect is fighting T10 units They work better in Apocalypse games, where you will more frequently encounter extremely high toughness Gargantuan and Monstrous creatures, which make the Poison sacs a better investment, so where you would use the Trygons to sweep away infantry unworthy of your bio-titan's attentions, use the Carnifex to slap down enemy Monstrous and Gargantuan creatures.
Mawloc: Effectively a weaker, less accurate Trygon with the ability to cause damage to enemy squads as it enters play.
However, the primary use of the Mawloc is for vehicle displacement; any model which isn't killed must be moved to make way for the Mawloc to move through, being auto-destroyed should they not be able to escape; while the odds of killing a vehicle in the open with this are relatively minimal, the Mawloc can find use in disrupting vehicle formations, making it easier to rearshot vehicles, assault them, or pull them off objectives.
This makes anti-castling its primary use. Overshadowed by the Dactylis in Apocalypse games. It exemplifies everything that is wrong with the new Carnifex pricing and then compounds it to make a model so costly that it hurts the entire army just by being there. I can also roll one additional attack for every original attack that hits, but it can't roll new attacks generated from new attacks. Unfortunately it does not out perform a normal Carnifex with crushing claws by much, and it is out performed by Trygons for less cost.
In Apocalypse games he becomes even more pointless. Trygon: The Trygon is a former Apocalypse heavyweight which has been scaled down for standard 40k games and is the smallest of the bio-titans and the only bio-titan to lack biocannons.
An expensive model to be sure, it is still considered one of the highlights of the Tyranid codex.
And it has a cute little shooting attack, which it is generally advisable to ignore in favor of Running. As a final note, the Trygon itself does not have the option for a Mycetic Spore, but Deep Strikes with the same Scatter-reduction rules built into its cost; whether you consider this an advantage or not depends on your opinion of Spores. In Apocalypse games, their height and toughness allows them to act like moving cover for Gargantuan Bio-titans, and due to the Tyranid's lack of blast templates, they are great for clearing away tarpits from your bio-titans.
Tyrannofex: A primarily Ranged Bio-titan; This unit is of hotly debated usefulness. Scorned by some, and cherished as an unassailable bastion of destruction by others, they are ultimately models that lack a unified purpose. Their standard build is bristling with anti-infantry weaponry, sporting two flamer templates and a short range large blast, but most people don't feel they particularly need more anti-infantry support from such an expensive unit.
What the Tyranids do need is anti-armor, and that is something the Tyrannofex provides, but at considerable cost and with remedial reliability. Fans of the T-Fex insist it is a perfect tool because it draws fire away from your more important units without flinching, while opponents detract that the T-Fex's weakness is being ignored.

If the spores touch an enemy model, impassable terrain, or suffer a wound, place the center hole of a large blast marker over the model, and resolve it as a S4 Ap4 attack. Spore mines that drift off the table or into friendly units are immediately removed from play. Orbital Deployment: Spore mines never deploy normally.
Instead, after deployment zones are determined, but before models and placed, the spore mines deep strike onto the table. If they scatter into impassable terrain or off the table, they are destroyed. Once the game starts, they move as in Living Bomb.

He can not deep strike and reburrow in the same phase. Terror From the Deep: Instead, place a Large Blast Marker at the point where the Mawloc is entering play. Each model under the template takes a S6 Ap2 hit. Vehicles are hit on rear armor. Surviving models are moved the minimum distance to the side of the template while retaining coherency.
Units that were locked in combat must try to stay in B2B with enemy models, if not possible, place at least 1" apart. Any models that cannot be moved off the template are destroyed. Vehicles even if immobillized retain orientation when moved.
After everything has been moved, replace the template with the Mawloc. Thorax Swarm "Toxic? Power Weapon. A pair Pinning makes the enemy test on 3d6.
