The daemons showed up while the Nids were busy doing other shit. There is absolutely no motivation for either side beyond "Oshi they are suddenly there RAHRGIAHRGAKHDFKAFIQEWURI)T"

is there even biomass on daemons? or are they just warp entities
>> Anonymous 10/24/08(Fri)20:53 No.2872476
Maybe the Hive Mind sees the psychic entities as a threat to its own psychic dominance?

Actually, its more like Daemons would fight nids. The Chaos powers are really pissed off that nids are eating up all the warp generating sentients in the galaxy.

because there are juicy, delicious sorcerors and cultists hiding behind said demons

chaos is like a lobster, break away the inedible outer crust with enough force and you've got yummy, squishy meat on the inside just waiting for a bit of butter

Two reasons for Chaos:

1) to protect their source of existence: sentient beings
2) just to have something to chop up (e.g. Khorne)

Two reasons for Nids:

1) self defense
2) they're in the way

Simple really, deamon incursions are mainly random, but emotion weakens the boundary between planes. The raw fear generated by a tyaranid invasion of a hive world would make a good catalyst for daemons crossing over.

So tyranids descend and start noming the outlaying settlements. The hivers fear coalesces in the warp turning any psykers in the city to gateways. Daemons pour through slaughtering the citizens. Once the Tyranids make it to the cities they come face to face with Daemons. Neither side is driven by diplomacy so they just start ripping each other apart.

So begins the most epic fight of all time....Rippers vs. Nurglings.

Berel tended to his field as he always did. He had not seen the sun for days and so ravaged was he by the disease that ran unchecked across the planet he could scarcely lift his tools, but to him there was nothing else. It was with a resigned bitterness that he fulfilled his duty even as others around him failed in theirs. News had come early that great space-faring aliens named Tyranids were approaching, and even though the ruling class attempted to quell the information to avoid a panic the news had gotten out. At first preparations had gone well, but then the Grey Fever broke out in the water supplies, and the Planetary Defence Force was reduced to a skeleton crew in mere weeks. With no aid forthcoming from elsewhere the Governor and his families all fled the planet, and left the people to a fate of being devoured or wasted away from disease.

Berel spat a great wad of greenish phlegm into the soil, and watched the bright light trails in the sky marking the planetfall of the Tyranid force. No guns had greeted them from space, and the farmer seriously doubted there would be any raised when they landed. Yet even as doom came and Berel worked his daily duty for the last time, a small voice in his heart cried out for saving, the voice rising till it spilled from his lips. All across the world others did likewise, dropped to the greatest moment of despair in their existence till hope was snuffed out.

Great biological killing machines burst forth wetly from blossoming spores as the Tyranids prepared their bloody feast. If any were strong enough to hold a gun there were none who could hope to stand before the multitude that landed un-opposed. With the final nail in the coffin of the people, the world's population threw back their heads in anguish and cried out for one last time before they died, for someone to aid them.

There was a silence across the world as the cries of all faded out, as the Tyranids moved silently to their instinctual duty.
>> anonymous 10/24/08(Fri)22:22 No.2872873

No they are not. Tyranids in the picture much like tyranid players rely on acting like bitches to win their days. Those guys always put all fucking terrain (woods or craters) in the middle of the board so their gaunts can move unmolested and always move their dudes 2-3" too much. If you call their bullshit or go mechinazed they baawww you off the table.

Today I took two vindicators at 1000 pts and this tyranid guy startet to gobbling like a fucking turkey.

TL;DR : The baaawmind can fuck it self.

A humoured and joyous laugh boomed across the planet as the very stuff of reality rippled and broke, and a great war host strode out from tears wherever the xenomorphs massed as an army. Discoloured and rotted banners fluttered in the stench-laden winds that began to whip across each battleground, great drums beat alongside horns blowing a flat war-dirge, and nowhere could a person go without hearing monotone voices counting in unison.

Battle joined with the screaming of beasts from beyond the galaxy streaking into lines of slowly advancing plague-warriors who bore swords just as ruined as their bodies were. Yet as they were struck by wave after wave the aliens broke against a line that retaliated in slow and measured strokes. A simple knick or a spray of bile, and even these creatures who were created for the harsh suffering of war were reduced to disease riddled carcasses on the ground, their broken and bubbling forms being stepped on as the combat line advanced.

The greater creatures of the Tyranids let loose their greatest powers, great living weapons that cast searing venom or burrowing parasites spitting through the counting warriors, yet they did naught but tickled the bearers of plague, the venom naught against their own poisoned forms and the maggots unable to live in the putrescent insides long enough to do any damage. These beasts too were struck by rusted blade and wasted away as though they were nothing. More spores began to rain down upon the battlefields, but the rifts only seemed to grow as waves of new and more bizarre sorts of beasts sallied forth to meet them.

At the height of the largest battle, the greatest of the Tyranid broods smashed through the lines of the warriors, its form a combination of both ideal physical and mental power that even the most durable of the counting host could not hope to defeat, and the Tyranids were guided into its wake as it threatened to bring the battle to the aliens favour and sweep through the diseased.

It was to the fortunes of the host that the great beast met with something that rivalled its power as it plunged through the ranks of the plagued. Corpulent and massive, and armed with nothing but great meaty fists the champion of the warriors bellowed with laughter and held his arms open wide to meet the charge of the monstrosity. Great chitinous blades plunged into the form of the champion, gouging deep into weeping folds and poxed flesh to no effect at all. With laughter ever-louder the giant wrapped his arms wide about the monster to lock it in an unbreakable grip, before clamping his rotten teeth around its head and pulling. There was an inhuman scream, the sounds of cracking and tearing, and then as the head of the beast tore loose the Tyranid attack faltered across the planet, and then broke as the laughing champion began to beat the brood-warriors to death with the body of their leader.

The battle did not end there, but the very essence of the plague armies seemed to carry across the planet and even into space where the great Hive Ships of the Tyranids shrivelled and died with horrifying quickness, and the people of the planet embraced their saviours as readily as the new diseases had embraced them.

Berel still tended his fields from dawn till dusk, for even though his body was shrivelled and wasted his strength seemed only to grow. He was unsure what it was he was growing now, as the great fields of his crops were replaced with bizarre pus-weeping trees that dominated the landscape. They were to bear fruit soon though, so he had been told in his own mind with words that bellowed with joyous congratulations at his honest toil.

They would bring new life, and they would spread the joy to the rest of the galaxy.

I swear to god they're just like the Tau players that HAVE TO PLAY WITH JUNGLE TERRAIN OMGZ SINCE I HAS KROOT

One of them complained to a tourney organizer because I wouldn't let him use forest as part of the terrain, we were playing a fucking cityfight. Yeah this random patch of trees? That's um... a park? No, I don't think so, I fucking helped the store build the cityscape terrain from scratch, no faggot is putting a forest next to my manufactorium.

While some 'nids players are cool, there are a lot who are shitstains with their cover. I ran over 3 nid players on my way to 2nd place in the last 2k tourney since they refused to alter their tactics against triple vindicator and flamer chosen. The baaawfest from 2 of them (I know the third one, he's cool) was huge.

That player was being retarded then. It's a game, meant to be fun.

Besides, keep the terrain where both players can benefit from it! Gaunts are only meant to tie up the opponent in CC while you try to get the bigger ones in position.

That is glorious bastardry. I take it their 'tactics' were "Deploy cover, run, get into CC, win"?
>> Anonymous 10/24/08(Fri)22:51 No.2873012
more or less. fun to deny them the cover they're too used to having.

4x flamers and a heavy bolter on chosen does bad things to 'nids.

And I play triple vindicators because I like 'em, not to be expressly beardy. I play chaos undivided with a slaaneshi tint (slaanesh lord, raptors, and noise marines)

what was awesome was a 12-strong unit of noise marines stand their ground and mow down a full squad of 12 genestealers in one turn and getting assaulted by a pack of gaunts but winning combat by a huge margin and reducing the squad to a minor danger at best.

But pretty much the Chaos Gods protecting their own ass, and or territories.

Nid's hivemind probably just happened by, a planet still has sufficient biomass to warrant consumption with/without the daemons inhabiting it.
