Battle report: Tyranids at 1500 point tournament -- Game 2

So after winning the previous game I find myself on the top tables facing a Dark Eldar army.  This is the first game I have had against Dark Eldar.  My non-tournament games are against a small group of friends who either don't play DE or have yet to get them table ready.  In tournaments I've dodged them till now.  However I've been reading the codex and various forums and blogs and have my own plans for a DE army, so while not experienced I am at least well informed.

Battle report: Tyranids at 1500 point tournament -- Game 1

A new type of post for the blog today -- Battle Reports!  Something other then SpoCon musings  Enjoy!

This weekend I took my Tyranids to a 1500 point tournament at the Gamer's Haven in Post Falls, ID.  It was just a one day thing but was quite fun.  No overall award at this one, just Best General (Battle points), Best Sportsmanship (Fav opponnent and Thumbs ups) and player votes for Favorite Model and Army.  The missions were direct ports of the 2010 Adepticon Youngblood ones.

SpoCon: 1750 points. Just right?

So I am back after a long hiatus.  Shouldn't have any more long breaks between posts, at least until after SpoCon.

So is SpoCon really 1750 points?  Yes it is.  I get asked this a lot and have read or heard comments along these lines:  "1750?  What an odd point level."  I kind of agree, in that its a point level we don't see around here.  Usually tournaments or pick-up games run 1500 or 2000; the later being the most standard point level here and seemingly everywhere in the US.  However 1750 really isn't all that odd.  Here's a couple of fun facts:
