Drafting a Winning Tyranid Genestealer Army List

genestealers

Theme armies are very popular in Warhammer 40k.  Genestealer lore goes back to second edition with the advent of Genestealer Cults.  I played Tyranids back in 2nd Edition, and had a Genestealer based army for a good chunk of 3rd edition.  I love the thought of building a competitive Tyranid army based around a large contingent of Genestealers (39 of them to be exact).  This list uses the same concepts in my Tyranid Null Deployment TyraNull article, but replaces the Mawlocs with Genestealers.
