The Tyranid Crusher Stampede is a 40k Army of Renown for the bugs with rules restrictions and benefits. Obviously, this army is geared towards getting the big monsters down on the table without as much need for small support. The rules are just really cool and it will give you tons of survivability and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to field a ton of giant bugs!
These were spotted over on Imgur here from a copy of White Dwarf 471. Let’s jump into the leaked rules!
New 40k Tyranids Crusher Stampede Army of Renown Rules Spotted!
We said you won’t get much infantry support with this army! You cannot include anything with less than two wounds or anything that has the Swarm keyword. Not only that, you then have to include a monster for every unit that doesn’t have that keyword. However, the benefits are pretty big, just like the army!
All units that aren’t monsters get a 5+ invulnerable save right off the bat. Then, for your monsters, you get the ability to control objectives much easier as it counts the wounds instead of models and a damage reduction of one.
Tyranid Crusher Stampede Warlord Traits
Some pretty interesting traits, the first gives you more attacks for any unit within six inches. Then the second is only a three-inch aura, but it improves the survivability of your Warlords and makes units flee easier. The rampaging beast adds D3 attacks which can be pretty strong considering how important those attacks can be.
Tyranid Crusher Stampede Stratagems
There are more than this and we know these are kind of hard to read. The first one is 2 CP and will give you a ton of extra power against an enemy vehicle or monster. With 1 added to the hit roll, wound roll, and the damage roll. If you need a big baddy taken out, this is the stratagem!
Terrifying Charge is very interesting when you’re against hordes. With -3 Leadership, you should be able to pile on the casualties for only 1 CP.
Giving a 4+ invulnerable save to your big monsters is pretty nice. However, Aggresive Surge will add attacks, and again, when they are so impactful, it really becomes worth it. The third power, which you can see at the link below, lets you re-roll a hit roll.
