Oh my GoD! Surprised

I chose Tyranids because I thought it to be a good army to start with due to the few choices compared to other armies and still be challenging in game play!

Now I am glad because I was starting to think I chose the wrong army but I love the bugs and with all the new additions I don't even know where to start with designing my new army!

But I bet I will have lot's and lot's of fun doing it! Cool

Can we skip straight to February now scratch

The news/rumors are a combination of Warseer, Dakka Dakka, but mostly from the BoLS.

I don't think that even the stores have a preview copy yet... I keep checking the KK to see.

Tail weapons? Gone, head biomorphs, gone except for regen

Hormagaunts

Special Rules: Instinctive Behaviour - Feed, Fleet, Move Through Cover

Swift: Hormagaunts have very strong hind legs, with which they pursue their prey in a series of further jumps.
When a unit of Hormagaunts run, roll three dice and the highest result determines how far they move.

venom cannon (36" S6 AP4 assault 1 blast, -1 on vehicle damage chart)

special rules

(deepstrike rather than shock troopers, based on everything else that has it)
fearless
immobile
limited awareness
transport spore

limited awareness:
Mycetic Spores possess only rudimentary intelligence, and will attack anything they can find. Mycetic Spores are not subject to instinctive behavior. At the beginning of each shooting phase they automatically attack the nearest/next enemy unit unless they are locked in close combat.

transport spore:
Same gak as the trygon. Deepstrike from reserves, roll to scatter as normal. If the scatter would take into impassable terrain or onto enemy models then reduce the scatter to the minimum needed to prevent this etc.

Can transport up to 20 infantry or one monsterous creature. When the spore lands, the unit must immediately disembark. Place the models so they are within 2 inches of the spore. Any models that cannot be placed due to impassable terrain or enemy models within 1" are destroyed. Units may not move or assault on the turn they arrive but they may shoot as normal (or run).

immobile: Mycetic Spores cannot move after arriving on the battlefield. They may not seek protection (go to ground?) voluntarily or involuntarily. It may not consolidate at the end of an assault.

Death Leaper

comes with:
scything talons
rending claws
chameleon scales
flesh hooks (basically frag grenades, but also lets the model make a 6" S6 AP- assault 2 rending shooting attack)

It's After Me!
Move through cover
pheromone trail (1+ to reserve rolls and deepstrikers within 6" do not scatter)

What Was That?
What The heck?
Where Did It Go?


chameleon scales:
Unit begins in reserve even in missions when it isn't normally possible. When the unit arrives from reserves place it anywhere on the battlefield but more than 1" from an ememy model. The unit may not move or assault, but may shoot as per normal (including run).

It's After Me!:
pick an ememy chracter model at the start of the game and roll a d3. That model's leadership is reduced by the result for the rest of the game or until the Death Leaper is killed.

What Was That?:
All enemy infantry within 12" of the Death Leaper roll one less dice when moving through difficult terrain, to a minimum of one.

What The heck?: Enemy units that wish to target the Death Leaper must first make a check as if the Night Fight rules are in effect.

Where Did It Go?:
If the death Leaper ends its movement phase more than 1" away from an ememy model, the tyranid player may chose to merge him into the shadows. The death leaper is removed from play and placed in reserves. It may/is deployed the next movement phase as per the Chameleon Scales rules.

Termagants -

Spike Rifle: The spike rifle is a living tube of bone lined with muscle that contains a series of harpoon like sodium(acidic?) spikes. These spikes are accelerated so greatly that they have, even at long range, sufficient force to pierce the body of a target. Those who aren't killed immediately often bleed to death when the spikes are removed as they are covered with sharp barbs which can tear the blood vessels in the victim if great care is not taken.
Range:18" S3 AP- Assault 1

Strangleweb: (Colour text goes here, couldn't be bothered translating it)
Range: Flamer Template S2* AP- Assault 1, Pinning

if the blast scatters onto empty ground place a spore mine cluster and follow the spore mine rules for it etc etc.


Piercing Shriek:
The harpy's cry is so loud that its victims can do little more than shield their ears when it attacks. It counts as being equipped with frag grenades and the enemy unit attacked by the harpy halves their initiative (rounded up) for the rest of the close combat.

Unit type: Monstrous Creature

Weapons and Biomorphs: Hardened Exoskeleton, Teeth and Claws

Options:
May be given the following:
- Adrenal glands
- Toxin sacs
- Regeneration

Terror From The Deep: When a Mawloc enters the game following the rules for Deep Strike and lands where there is already another model, no roll is made on the Deep Strike Mishap Table, but instead the following occurs:

Place the 5-inch blast template directly above the point at which the Mawloc breaks out of the ground. Each unit affected by the template takes a number of S6 AP2 hits, which corresponds to the number of models of the unit that are wholly or partially under the template. Hits against vehicles will be directed against the rear armour. Any surviving models are moved the minimum distance to the side of the template while keeping in legal formation and avoiding impassable terrain. Units that were locked in close combat before the Mawloc's attack must, if possible, be kept in base contact with enemy models. Otherwise, however, opposing models must be no closer than 1 inch apart. Vehicles, even if immobilised, retain their orientation when they are moved. Any models that cannot be moved from the area covered by the template are destroyed. After all casualties have been removed and all models have been moved, replace the 5-inch template with the Mawloc.

Reburrow: A Mawloc can decide at any point in its movement phase to reburrow, as long as it is not bound in close combat. In doing so it is removed from the table and placed back in Reserve. In your next movement phase, it can automatically return to the table following the Deep Strike rules. Note that a Mawloc cannot arrive via Deep Strike and reburrow in the same turn.


Hive tyrant psychic powers

The Horror
This psychic power is a shooting attack that automatically hits a single non-vehicle unit of the enemy within 12 inches. The unit must take a moral test or fall back. No effect on fearless units.

Life-Drain
This psychic power is a shooting attack that automatically hits a single non-vehicle unit of the enemy within 12 inches. The unit suffers d3 S3 AP2 hits. The tyrant recovers wounds equal to the number of wounds caused by this attack, up to its maximum wounds.

Nerve-shock
This psychic power is a shooting attack that automatically hits a single non-vehicle unit of the enemy within 12 inches. Until the start of the next turn, the Weapon Skill and Balistic Skill of the target unit is reduced to 1.


Psychic scream
This psychic power automatically hits all non-vehicle units of the enemy within 2d6 inches. Any unit hit must take a leadership check. If the test is failed, they suffer a wound for each point the test was failed by, with no save allowed.

Trevigon psychic powers

translators note: a tervigon comes with Domination for free and may also purchase any of the others.

Catalyst:
This psychic power is used during the movement phase. If it succeeds, one friendly model within 12 inches has the feel no pain special rule until the beginning of the next turn.

Dominate:
This psychic power is used at the beginning of your movement phase, before tests for instinctive behavior. If it succeeds, the synapse range of the trevigon is extended to 18 inches.

Frenzy
This psychic power is a psychic shooting attack that hits one friendly unit within 12 inches automatically. this unit can run and shoot in the same phase. it may do so even if under the effects of insintctive behavior feed. However, this unit still may not assault after running unless it also has fleet.

Broodlord psychic powers

translators note: Broodlord gets both for free.

Aura of Despair:
This psychic power is used at the beginning of your assault phase. if it succeeds, all enemy units within 12" suffers a -1 modifier to their leadership. If there are multiple broodlords in range of the enemy unit, the effect is cumulative.

Hypnotic Stare:
This psychic power is used during the assault phase, after moving models into base contact but before resolving any attacks. If it succeeds, choose an enemy model in base contact with the broodlord. both players roll a d6 and add the leadership value of their respective models. if the broodlord's result is equal or higher than the enemy's, that enemy model may not make any attacks until the following assault phase. this only effects models with a leadership value.

The Parasite of Mortrex
comes with
injector (wounds of 6 cause instant death)
rending claws
wings

Special rules:
synapse creature
host body
parasitic implant
independent character
shadow in the warp

Host Body:
ripper swarms that are within 24" of the The Parasite of Mortrex do not have to take instinctive behavior tests.

Parasitic Implant:
Each model that suffers an unsaved wound from the parasite must take a toughness test. If the test is failed, roll a d6. At the end of the combat phase, place this many ripper swarm bases within 6 inches of the The Parasite of Mortrex. Any bases that cannot be deployed due to impassible terrain or enemy models within 1" are destroyed.

"The Sarge is acting strange...":
Every single outflanking unit could conceal a soldier who is inflected with a Ripper Parasite. At the end of the movement phase a single model (of the owner's choice) in each of these outflanking units must take a toughness test. If the test is failed, the model is removed immediately as a casuality and the tyranid player may place d6 ripper bases within 6" of the victim. If the victim was/is in a transport vehicle, it is assumed they were already outside or thrown outside before they died. Any bases that cannot be deployed due to impassible terrain or enemy models within 1" are destroyed.

I was under the impression that the venomthrope makes the unit charging a unit take a difficult terrain test, and that there was another effect that caused a toughness check, which causes a wound.

Until you have a 'dex actually in your hands or the product is released, all rumors should be taken with a "grain of salt"... just like the rumor posted today about the Inquisition.

yes I did see a review on the new codex from BOW, it seems to me the Carnifex got gimped; no stat line enhancements and with an I1 that means stay away from power weapons so they are basically going to be used for meat walls I guess since I believe they come in Units of three now.

For the gaunts they have replaced WoN my favorite attribute to gaunts with a new spawning biomorph for Termagants rolling 3D6 for number that spawn but if you roll doubles of anything you get nothing! NOTHING!

Like Dume said though I don't actually have the codex in hand and I am sure that there are, and I am looking forward too, other new things in there that will have us all playing a new style of Tyranids I just hope it's not "Hive Fleet Space Marines" meaning the game play with drop pods and all the rule changes will be like a space marine army in Tyranid clothing! Come on if I wanted to play space marines I would just buy them instead!

WRONG! The ability you speak of is for the HQ unit the Tervigon. It spawns 3D6 gants per turn during the movement phase. Its not a bio-morph(or if it is it only applies to this unit) when you roll doubles the unit is created but you are unable to produce any more gants for the rest of the game.

Its not going to be like space marines at all. We still lack the protection of a cushy +3 save.

yea that's it!

And for the Carnifex I guess it can be used as fire support or support attacks but I have to wait until I get my copy this weekend i was just ranting a little bit lol!

But I am sure with the Trygon and other adds even the Gargoyles It is going to make an interesting army to play. Sooooo many options!

I still can't wait!

Can't wait to see them babies painted! bounce

The codex looks cool after a quick glance (I had meeting last night) but I'm hoping to get a better look today while I'm at work (sorry work).

I assembled a couple gargoyles. FABULOUS models.

body, 2 wings, chest piece, 1 piece head (NICE) and the gun/arm. 7 total pieces. Pretty easy assembly, very few mold lines. They look great.

I still say the tyranids did not deserve a codex update there are so many more armies that need one badly.

Did they need one? Certainly no. But they are a great looking army and sell well so it is understandable that they move them up in the development cycle.

I hope that Crons are on the door step soon.

I think we see crons near Xmas. I know some Dark Eldar fans are hurting to see an update for them as well. Only makes sense the top races get updates first.
