Default Picture of a new nid!!!

Well here it is guys the first picture of a new tyranid model!!!



Aparently some of the new nids are called the following

Pyrovore: (rumored to be a fire-based biovore variant giving the nids a strong indirect fire option)
Toxathrope: (probably the bug above, and sounding like a minor variant of a malanthrope/zoanthrope based on its name, size, and appearance)
Trygon: (the big guy himself, but still no word of whether its in the codex, or Apocalypse only)


Sauce= Bell of lost souls

What is it meant to be? Hive Tyrant? it dosent much look like an offshoot of the Zoanthrope to me. I hope they continue the fluff, with the tyranids obviously winning against the orks in the octavious system

Looks closer to a malanthrope, so maybe the Toxathrope WKoA was talking about. I wonder if they're bringing out a plastic kit for making 'thropes of various sorts? A single plastic kit for making any of the 'thropes would be truly awesome....
