The Tyranid Army that won the 2015 LVO & 2014 11th Co. GT

It’s an exciting time for Tyranid players. Sean Nayden’s Tyranid army recently won the biggest Grand Tournament in Warhammer 40k history – the 2015 Las Vegas Open. His army relied on Flying Hive Tyrants to lay down supporting fire from the sky, and a combination of Lictors and Mawlocs on the ground. The recent influx of Hive Tyrant lists is really powerful, but where they struggle is Maelstrom missions, as they have to land to claim objectives. By having Lictors, and relatively cheap MC’s in the form of Mawlocs, Sean was able to go for Maelstrom mission points with units on the ground, while letting his Flyrants stay in the air for as long as possible.
