Ork Waaaaagh Vs Tyranid Hive Fleet?

    Draigo is a single character horribly wanked by Ward that is further boosted by being a Grey Knight, the ultimate character in W40K for the most wank. However, Nids, on a whole, are largely beaten down and have poor showings in most works considering, that as something that can only be portrayed as a villain, will almost always lose.

    Also, 90% of a Space Marine Chapter is a small price to pay for the destruction of an entire Hive Fleet. Very small in fact. As stated previously, the danger of the Tryanids comes not from their lethality, they can be destroyed with sufficient forces. Their danger stems from how they plunge whole sectors of space into darkness as they jam Imperium communications and prevent defensive forces from rallying, and allow other factions to attack the area with little trouble to themselves.

    Nids and Orkz are on par. Both Nids and Orkz adapt to the battlefield, so while the Nids might be getting bigger and meaner with every battle (plus the Swarmlord may show up eventually), the fighting itself attracts Orkz from all over the galaxy, or even from beyond the Milky Way.

    The worst thing that could happen to the Nids is a lack of biomass, which would literally starve the Hive Fleet to death, but given that more and more Orkz are driven to the planet with every passing day, this wouldn't be a problem.
    The worst thing that could happen to the Orkz is that the Nidz just fall back, in which case the Waaagh! would radically lose its power and the various Warbands would promptly start infighting. Given the more sufficient Nids, this also is unlikely to happen.

    I do dislike that in a setting that purports itself the GRIMMEST of GRIMDARKS there is a character who does nothing but win, on the back of being the bestest of the bestest of a strain of people who are speculatively made from the genetic material of what is arguably the most bestest ever.

    Draigo a git.
  4. Draigo was created because ward was told he couldn't bring guiliman out of stasis.

    we both agree here
    tyranids is the dragon that heroes slain to establish themselves and in the end the bad guys will not win as abbadon has already experienced (13 black crusade damn)
    no power armour beats plot armor

    btw there are no reports of other races attacking a sector plunged by the fleet
    and behemoth is still around gathering biomass eheh

    p.s. draigo has crumbled before slaneesh

    we're here for that
  8. It matters not for what orks or tyranids fight for because in the end all the bloodshed and all of the fighting will please the Blood god KHORNE!

    Orks vs Tyranids has the potential to be the perfect storm. It's the exact type of war the Orks love to fight, close and personal, bashing each other in the face forever. It's also a very rich source of biomass for the Tyranids since the WAAAGH brings more and more Orks all the time. So there's no way they'll ever run out of biomass.

    Perfect storm.

    the big problem is: tyranids are not really arrived in this galaxy, BUT isn't needed to kill ALL tyrandis, only the sufficent quantity to let the hive mind decide to om nom other galaxy give more biomass with less effort. But another problem is the emperor. Tyranids are attracted like a moth to the astronomican.
