Imagine the terror of holding the line against a massive pyramid horde

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.

not anymore, necrons (for the most part) are cracking down on tyranids for how dangerous they are. I play necrons and in games I let them get close, my army is CC heavy

I dont tink that will work

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.

Looks like the tyranids have a nice meal served up for them.

Go nids I am a dummy! 
Sambonator Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014
hmmm i would bet that the imperial guard would at the last second before they would be wiped out would blow up the planet so im going with no one wins 
Kyrasia Featured By Owner May 20, 2014
Imperium, because the Imperium can't have a massive loss, else GW would have to advance the plot and they don't want to do that
Drakon-Fireblade Featured By Owner May 9, 2014
Hmm from how close the Nids allready are i would say they win. I have played them very long and if they get THAT close to imperials the poor Humans get slaughterd.

Sargeant Anderson looks up from his weapon.  His cold steel blue eyes bore into the Rookie.
"The 'nids..." He says, "They're like a disease."
With a quick motion he slides the action of his heavy stubber back and then rams it forward.
"And I've got the Throne-damned cure right here."

lol tyranids win. do you think they give drugs to guardsmen so that they are still chilled out no matter the odds
Killeraholic Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2014
I love the guard look at us while his brothers are fighting haha he is like: ''Greetings from Cadia IV, love you mom''
Now do this picture from the other direction ;)

Well like Johnny Rico said in Starship Troopers "KILL EM! KILL EM ALL!"… Fun Fact: It is believed that the "bugs" in Starship Troopers was the inspiration for the Tyranids.
Jammex Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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.
superbatprime Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Uh no...

Starship Troopers is a novel that was written by Robert Heinlein in the 1950s... far older than the 'Nids.

Did you really think Hollywood ever has an original idea? lmao...

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.

This is one of those moments that you just drop the Flashlight-Guns and run away... Let the imperial navy handle the situation.

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.

I want to see a Guardsmen butt stroke a termagaunt off balance then plunge his bayonet into the things side while firing.

Bad-assery right there.

The Cadians are a fine and upstanding army with years of army experience against the most ruthless and evil enemy in the known universe.

The Tyranids are a numberless horde of aliens with a single-minded and fearless need for food.

They will win.

It is in their very description that the Tyranids represent the end of the universe, and at this point it's just resisting the inevitable.

The Cadians may win this battle - and the next - and the next hundred after that...

... but the Tyranids will win in the end. There is no stopping the swarm; only delaying.
commissar-pijjin Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013  Student Writer
they could get a bunch of titans to step on them that could work
Rythmear Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Until the Titans get destroyed, eaten, and all the squished Tyranid biomass re-used to make more Tyranids, while the priceless and irreplaceable weapons of the Imperium are digested and lost forever.
commissar-pijjin Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Student Writer
i dont think games-workshop would ever let the tyranids get so powerful that they'd be better than even their beloved space marines so uh 
Rythmear Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
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.
