I 'accidentally' started a Kraken Nids Army whilst the lockdown, Space Hulk & Space Hulk Deathwing was how I originally got into the 40k hobby and the lockdown seemed like the ideally excuse to finally paint up the Stealers I had, one eBay thing led to another and now I'm left wondering what to add...

...I have all the Broodlord, swarmlord, Flyrant (magnetised arms), biovores, troops/swarms in the list below but from what I read I am leaning towards the Neurothrope, Zoanthropes and Exocrines to add once my I've finished the batch painting!

I do like the kraken scheme and ethos but a Kronos detachment for the heavy support might be a smart move? I've a lone Tyranid Prime/warrior that could allow for that in the list...

Ideas and comments welcome!

Zoanthropes work really well in a kraken list, since they can move, advance and maybe use movement stratagems before the psychic phase, you can get them into position to use smite. I tend to take psychic scream in unit of 4+ to deal 3D3 mortal wounds per turn.

Exocrines are incredible, but really want to be in a kronos detachment. The re roll 1's and symbiostorm really push the Exo's potential. Dont forget to use pathogenic slime for flat 3 damage. I also give my Exo's dermic symbiosis for the 5++.

Old one eye loves a kraken list, especially with swarmlord, They're a great double act. As long as you can keep OOE character protected while he crosses the board, he'll smash just about anything in combat. Don't let anything swing back, he can dish it out, but he can't take a beating.

Thanks IronDredd, I hadn't considered old one eye, I like the idea or a very assault focused brood, I'm tempted to ignore shooting almost entirely on a rule of cool basis...

...one problem... Flyers/aircraft, I really need the Flyrant to earn it's points there...
