The Purple Tide was stemmed!
Paul and I got together for a 1750 point game of Take and Hold. He's a good sport, and when I won the game it was as enjoyable to him as if he'd won himself. I played his Tyranids before and it was as great a game as this one. Anyhow, pictures abound!
Paul's Tyranids are painted incredibly well. I loved looking at them.
BTW I fielded my Wave Dragon. I don't put it on the table very often; it's basically a Wave Serpent with four flamers (Str4) instead of any long-range weapons. It makes short work of hoard armies but it also has to get right into harm's way to do it. So it's a trade off. It's nice and red though, and I like red.
