Return Of The Tyranids

After many years in The Loft Full Of Lead, the Tyranids returned to the table for a game of 8th Edition.

As this is an army of mostly models from the last century (!), it was mostly Troop choices with only a few HQ and one Screamer-Killer.
There were plenty of Genestealers, mostly the original plastic Space Hulk models, but a few lead ones thrown in for good measure.

Thirty Termagants were the speed bump and rather amazingly, lots survived until the end of the game.

Tyranids sure are fast, it did not take long to get into melee and start to do some damage.

The game took a while to play as there were 80+ Tyranid models and they take a while to move each turn. It did not help that I had to keep reading the rules in a vain attempt to remember all of their special abilities and buffs.

It was good fun to bring out some old models again, I am glad I did not get rid of them years ago.
