We had an interview with one of our newest members, Shane, and asked him some questions about his new army, Tyranids. Hit the jump to see the details
DWGC: So you've just recently started 40k??
Shane: Yes, about 2-3 months ago
DWGC: What tempted you onto this path of damnation?
Shane: Hahaha it's always something I've wanted to try since i was younger but i could never really find anyone else playing or had the funds to do so. Cate introduced me to everyone at the shoppe and I got sucked into the community because it was so welcoming and helpful.
DWGC: Why tyranids?
Shane: Well I've always been a fan of aliens and beast like creatures, it's the same reason i play Zerg in starcraft. I just enjoy the idea of these massive hoard like creatures devouring everything in their path.... also, the models are awesome and it has a ton of variety
DWGC: That's true. And what was the first thing you bought?
Shane: Hmmm... i think i found a 42 model pack on ebay, so a bunch of termagants hey. Then got warriors and a carnifex
DWGC: And why those ones specifically?
Shane: Simply cause it was a lot for cheap. Got a good deal. Now I'm buying specifics, back then i just needed numbers
DWGC: What's your next acquisition?
Shane: Sorry. Got distracted... I'm looking to get a zoanthrope brood next
DWGC: Need more synapse?
Shane: Lil bit, but i just really like there psychic powers and think there pretty damn cool 😝
DWGC: Do you have any goals for your army? Any tactical aims?
Shane: Well, i plan on covering all the models eventually but right now i just want something that can hold it's own and then I'll get all my fliers. One day I'll have a full flying team up and running
DWGC: Why did you pic your colour scheme?
Shane: I wanted my nids to feel like they where part of a jungle like world, where they developed camouflage. So i took inspiration from grasshoppers. I also wanted to keep an insectoid feel
Thanks Shane! can't wait to see your full force up and running!
Here are more pics of his army in progress
