That Harpy looks close enough to mine that I'm happy to field a new with my old.

The new big things? I'm so glad I've asked for GW vouchers for christmas... :biggrin:

If the tentacley thing is (as I expect) the Haruspex, then it's chances of being a transport are small.
The Exocrine is a long range tank hunter, the Haruspex an assault beast. The Malefactor was the transport critter. Doesn't mean that they may not have built in an ability, but it's unlikely.

I think it's awesome Nidzilla players have more scope now though. Several new options are better than one huge thing everyone will take :biggrin: Not that I play nidzilla ,nor have a fondness for huge gribblies.....

I just *really* hope there's scope for having more than just Tervigons as troop MCs.

That big dude with the SM helmet gives me the impression he's gonna be a one off character, like Old One Eye. Don't know why, just something about the sculpt makes it look more inividualistic than your normal Nid MC.

That Nidzilla army I nearly started with the last codex might just come through this time.

I so want an alien like army but even those tyranids don't seem to do it for me. Perhaps if they brought back the Genestealer Cult I'd be more inclined.

If this was done with the Hive Guard / Tyrant Guard dual box, I'm sure you can remove the shoulder plate (see the Hive Guard pic) to make it look more like the current Tyrant Guard.

The big bugs look awesome, I'm definitly going to include an Hexocrine or Haruspex in my army, can't even decide which one yet.

I also like the way the Harpy turned out, even though I have never been a fan of flying tyranids.

Death from the skies! I'm so looking forward to the new 'nids.

You can actually do Genestealer cult using the current Codex. It just lacks in tanks, and requires a bit of imagination ;)
Termagant stats cover guardsmen/hybrids quite nicely.
Genestealers are good as they are.
Hormogaunts cover your fast combat hybrids.
Warriors can be stand ins for a number of things - heavy weapon teams, etc
Raveners - rough riders.

And that's having only thought about it for 2 minutes...
