Tyranid Warrior

The Tyranids, also known as The Great Devourer are an extragalactic alien race with the sole purpose of devouring all forms of genetic and biological material in the Galaxy. They do this in order to reproduce and evolve. All Tyranid technology and weaponry is entirely biological and is engineered to suit specific means. Every living creature in a Tyranid Hive Fleet, from the smallest spore to the largest hive ship is directed by the Hive Mind. The Tyranids are seen as one of the gravest threats to the Galaxy. They seek only to consume all organic life and cannot be reasoned with or deterred from its objective. Worse still for the Galaxy, thus far the Tyranid Hive Fleets that have been encountered are merely the furthest stretched tendril of the main invasion fleet that is still traveling in the void of space.

The origins of the Tyranids is not yet clear, aside from the fact that they are not native to the Milky Way Galaxy and have only arrived recently. This means that the Tyranids have traveled for untold millennia to reach this galaxy and although they are able to travel faster than light using Hive Ships called Narvhals, this is slower then warp travel which is utilized by most of the other races. It is unknown which galaxy they originated from, how long they have existed or how many Galaxies they have devoured.

The Tyranid Strategy of battle is "quantity has a quality of its own" from the millions of Hormagaunts and Termagaunts to the giant hulking Carnifex, and perfer to swarm their opponets with overwelming numbers. The reason they have chose to come to the milky way is ultimately unknown, however many believe they are drawn by the Holy Emperors psychic presence in the warp. They may have also come simply to feed anew.

The first recorded presence of the Tyranids was in 745.M41 on an ocean world known as Tyran. Hive Fleet Behemoth cut a bloody swath straight into the center of the galaxy until they were finnally defeated during the Battle of Macragge by the Ultramarines chapter. This feat, however, caused the Ultramarines to suffer devastating losses which would take centuries to replace, even the chapter master was left wounded. In 942.M41 Hive Fleet Kraken emerged from the edge of the galaxy and began the slaughter anew. The brunt of this new attack was borne by the Space Marine Chapters known as the Scythes of the Emperor and the Lamenters; the former Chapter was almost completely destroyed. However the Fleet was finnally destroyed during the Battle of Ichar IV at the Eldar Craftworld Iyanden. In such a short time later, however, Hive Fleet Leviathan came out of seemingly nowhere, and just when the strength of possibly Holy Terra would be tested, Hive Fleet Leviathan was distracted by a large Ork empire. It is likely however, that they will come out of the battle stronger than ever, having absorbed ork genetic material.

Description Edit

Tyranids

Tyranid Invasion

In short, Do you love swarming your opponents with squad caps that go through the roof?! Do you like keeping the pressure on your opponet 24/7?! Do you like having huge armies of full organic material completely invincible to those pesky Lascannons and anti-vehicle weapons?! This Race is for you! The Tyranids have upgrades for almost every unit, being able to turn even the lowly spineguant into a destroyer of worlds. Tyranids are mainly a very melee focused race, however they have plenty of options for ranged attack, and you can turn each of your squads towards a certain specialty and have all types of enemies covered. Their biggest weakness, however, is the fact that they are all organic and they are extremely weak to fire and anti infantry, not only that, but their listening posts dont have any turrets on them, instead they have toxic miasma, which is similar, but not quite as good since it requires them to be fairly close to the structure. The Tyranids do not have a dedicated builder unit. Instead, the hive mind is used to build structures and is capable of building multiple structures at one time. Tyranids have global abilities they can launch from their hive mind to disorganize their enemies for power. You can also launch THREE super weapons from there, each are devastating in their own right. They include the Bio-bomb, which is a large explosion dropping down three turrets and spreading toxic miasma, They also have a meteor storm, which does a devastating amount of damage and spawns captillary towers which give resources. Their final super weapon allows them to call down the hive fleet, allowing a huge cloud of toxic miasma to spawn where you can create units for decreased costs, Although it requires feeding it enemy units. You can also launch multiple biobombs from the superweapon, allowing for total base destruction.
