    Compensation?
    For being the ONLY race without the ability to ALLY &/OR Break the force-org chart ?
    and thus able to make some very useful -or- dare I say in some cases: Broken/OP combo's ?

    1 - Other races have monstrous creatures too.
    2 - Harpy? um yeah, for the rich Nid player, maybe 1 model won't suck as much as it used too.
    3 - Nids have too many of their better units under the Elites slot. and not enough room on a force org chart to take em.
    4. Nids have taken repeated and almost deliberate beatings from the Nerf Bat and feel like the abused puppy that no one wants of the 40k universe.

    I think the harpy ought to get a 'new model' exemption from that though.
    I don't agree with that viewpoint. The Tyranid codex has a lot of awesome in it. Especially with these new rules. Carnifexes are Back, Baby! 5 re-rolling to hit, no make that 6 from rage!, str 10 attacks that go at I4 through cover. oh, and a plasma cannon.

    Uhh, ever race can break FoC at 2000pts (open another FOC), you just can't ally. Hyperbole demeans us all.
    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    I'm curious if you can ally your own race? that way you could get more out of your hq slot (which the nids have a few good units in), troops (again, decent troops...) and then grab that elusive elite slot that the nids are so desperate for.

    According to this pict by the OP, your army cannot ally with itself:

    uh...
    so, you give up 1 HQ for another... HQ slot. And unique creatures, are still Unique!
    hmmm...

    So, now I can take 2 Hive Tyrants! Oh, wait, I could already do that...

    I don't see how this changes things...

    ah bummer. I guess at 2k you're able to start a new foc anyway.
