Is the Doom to powerful?

Ever since 6th has come out I have added the Doom to most of my lists.  He is a major distraction and usually makes up his points.  What I have heard though is that he is just over powered and cheesy.  Almost to the point of Dragio Cheesy or an army of Purifiers cheesy.

turning it up to 11..

Today is the last day of the 2 headed general league and I was lazy and I am going to use my army from week 3 found here.  What I want to talk about is my Tyranid list at 2k.  Now I hear a lot of people say that nids at 2k are great because you finally unlock 3 more precious elite slots.  I am here to tell you.  Elite slots are not the end all be all.  Lets take a look at my army and then discuss.

quick update...

So I started to work on my first genestealer. sorry about the low res.. I took them with my phone so it is very poor.  Take a look.

I am not good with green stuff and I am unsure how much better I can get it.  I thought about maybe outsourcing but I have a feeling that it would cost too much. After seeing the results maybe I should look into it.

So what do you think?  will it pass?

Happy, Friendly Nom nom noms...

Next year I have signed up to go to Adepticon.  I am playing in the Friendly 40K games and in the combat patrol.  I have not seen the rules for combat patrols yet but I have heard that the friendly games are a 1500 list and they don't want any cheesy lists.

I have devised a snake based list that I don't think is to cheesy. Lets take a look:

Prime - Lash whip and bone sword, regeneration

10 Genestealers - Broodlord, toxin sacs
10 Genestealers - Broodlord, toxin sacs
 9 ripper swarms - toxin sacs

Fast attack 

5 Raveners - rending claws, devourers
5 Raveners - rending claws, devourers
3 Shrikes - lash whip bone sword toxin sacs

Heavy Support
Trygon Prime  Bio electric pulse, regen

Nothing too bad.  I don't have a Doom or a winged hive tyrant so no cheese there.  I also didn't bring the hive guard so no cheesy S8, no cover save guns.

What it does have is a bunch of nom nom nom.  If my guys can get into combat I should be ok.

Next, I want to convert all my figure to having a snake body.  The raveners, rippers,  and Trygon are already snakes so I am good there.  For the shrikes I have some wings coming in from forge world that I will use on a ravener body so I they look similar to the new winged tyrant. My prime is going to be the red terror with different arms.  which leaves the genestealers.  I am going to attemt to use some greenstuff to make the bodies. I will post some pics when I get one done.

Any suggestions?

Ork Rumors...

So, the last couple of days I have heard some rumors on new ork models coming down the pipe

Ork Miniatures (alongside the codex)
New Weirdboy
MegaNobs - Tellyportas combo-kit
Grot Gliders - (very odd one, a 40K version of WFB Doomdivers?)
Mega Mork/Gork - (your guess is as good as mine)

Ork Miniatures (outside the codex)
New Buggy - Half-track
Flashgits - Tankbustas plastic combo-kit

Looking at these I am not very excited.  I don't need a new Weirdboy and never play Wazdakka.  I own 6 mega nobs and not sure what the cyborks is... maybe an upgrade kit like the iron hand upgrade kit. The buggy is needed as is the Deffcoptas but I don't need any.

This leaves:
flashgits/tankbusters which would be cool but not a high priority. 
Grot Gliders sounds fun/fluffy
Mega Mork / Gork  O.o  is this going to be a bigger dread along the lines of Mega Dread

These rumors come from BOLS who got them from Stickmonkey who if I remember right is not always acurate.  I would really like to start paying attention to who is the most reliable of the rumormongers.

Oh well, I am still looking for some Tau goodness but I am not holding my breath.

happy hump day.

Monday blues...

So the weekend is over and another 40k weekend tournament is in the books.  I didn't take photos or kept notes on the games so no battle reports  :( sorry.  I do have some thoughts on the raveners vs genestealer debate and I can can review how I did.
