Nids win. Slow, numberless, one dies hundreds replace it. Evetualy it will come down to the tyranids vs necrons. Neither of which benefit the other with victory or defeat. Necrons need life energy to feed the ctan (which nids don't have) nids need biomass which necrons don't have. They avoid each other. Once the rest of the universe is dead it will become a endless unwinnable battle. 2 nearly unkillable races.
nids are gonna win the galaxy, its just a matter of time since the imperium cant replenish their lost worlds. plus the eldar are rare as it is and dark eldar are even worse. orks will be the second to last while chaos will be eventually wiped out due to the shadow of the warp and no worshippers.
Well like Johnny Rico said in Starship Troopers "KILL EM! KILL EM ALL!" www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g82I7… Fun Fact: It is believed that the "bugs" in Starship Troopers was the inspiration for the Tyranids.
But Tyranids have been around for longer. Starship troopers came out in 1999 but the earliest record of Tyranids I've seen is Space Hulk which first appeared a decade earlier. Games Workshop have also been found saying that the xenomorphs from the Alien series are part of their inspiration.
Also is it just me or was the only asian in the Starship Troopers Trilogy in ST2 and he's like one of the first to die. They had white, black, and hispanic (in all three)with ONE asian who dies early in 2 [and no Natives in any]. Actually in MOST movies they use filipinos in place of Natives, which to me it's like a bird sh*ting on your head. You're told it's good luck, but you still got sh*t on your head. Even then I'd take a filipino acting like he's Native instead of nothing. Sorry about me ranting. Ypur artwork is still awesome.
To die in battle is the most glorious thing a guardsmen could request. And this battle, win or loose, shows that guardsmen are gutsy mother ****ers. Simply because in this picture their faces show no fear, no hesitation.
It's not a matter of it happening during the lifecycle of the game; that'd ruin the balance, and it'll never happen.
But it states pretty clearly in the Tyranid rulebook that they represent the end of the galaxy; they are a numberless horde of aliens that devour everything in their path and grow stronger as a result. It's not a matter of "if" but "when". It's pretty much a case of "Well, if the Necrons don't do it - the Tyranids will."
The Imperium of Man is weak, their STC's are fragmented and lost, the technology required to rebuild their ancient machines is lost to them - and with every day that passes, their grip on the stars diminishes.
