Its right it isnt a dual kit. Also it looks like they are on 60mm bases.

They got the broadside treatment....Its hard to judge as ive just seen the front of the box, but they do look bulkier and more squat than they did.

I wonder if it's a Hive Guard/Tyrant guard duel kit?

Is it just me or does the one on the left look slightly larger?

I got tyranids as part of a package deal from a mate, however I still struggle to like them, they've kind of lost their fear inspiring nature to me, would be nice if this book brought it back to me.

Tyranids
Looks like I was a month out with Nids release date. expected release date 30th Nov -7th Dec. Second wave releases got removed if you haven't already noticed. Expect second wave release's to start in approx 18-24 month after all codex's and army books are complete.

I find it really hard to imagine they'd make that Hive Guard kit and not have Tyrant Guard options in there since it would only take an additional couple of arm options. If not, then they wont be selling many old Finecast TG anyway, since they'd be the easiest kitbash in the world.

I'm not really buying that we'll be waiting a further 18-24 months to release some of the models either (unless it's replacements for existing things such as Warriors), given the missing 'nid models were what started all of the problems with wave releases in the first place.

Tyranids Release Dec. 7th: Reports Coming In

Lictors are lurking, gene-stealers have infiltrated the bureaucracy, and we may be in for a serious infestation. Tyranids. Anyone got the number of the nearest Chapter of Space Marines?

I have been getting reports now, several in fact, that are all saying Tyranids are indeed set for a Dec 7th release date. If this is the case, its going to be a huge release. With the many different confirmations I am finally coming around now.


Please remember that although I am getting these, these are still rumors. I am just reporting what I am hearing. Here are two of them.

via anonymous sources on Faeit 212
the info hes recieving from distributors and GW is that tyranids are being shipped for Dec 7th release.

Just got the confirmation of tyranids for dec!
liky links from NAtfka


Following this up:
When was the last time Gw released a codex/armybook in December? Feels like ages ago, or did I miss some recent one? The policy has been no books December since Xmas is wild enough but that might be gone now?

I was thinking Hive Guard would be the best spot for anti-Flyer weapons. But that looks more for dragging vehicles closer to assault, like a Magna-Grapple. But that doesn't really make sense for Hive Guard to have.

I've seen what you quoted around. But I don't think those are 60mm bases. The shot appears to be at an odd angle but assuming the head size is similar to current Hive Guard, those are 40mm bases. And while hard to tell, given the angle again, if say that box is no bigger than the Centurian kit. Dual kits with 3 guys on 40mm bases seem to be gaining popularity. The obvious exception being Wraithguard.

could be 50mm like the centurions.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Regarding the grapple, it's entirely possible they yank flyer, for grounding checks or change flying modes.

I'd like the release to be December, but I really don't mind either way, I've put some of my money aside in any event.

Lets add some more info and further confirmation shall we:

Quote:
December is Going to Be Crazy: Tyranids are Coming

The Tyranid invasion is here, and its hive fleet will be visible for pre-orders November 30th, hitting us on December 7th. I resisted and denied it was possible as long as I could, but their signature was masked. One can only hope that with this pre-imminent threat hitting us early, that the aforementioned Escalation and Stronghold Assault will also be made available. (although I can see these being pushed back to January now)

We have had lots of rumors lately on exactly what is coming, but I went back to dig up some of the more reliable ones that I have had here on Faeit 212, just to see what was going to happen to the bugs. Now these were from playtesting and so may have changed. However, these are very reliable on exactly what direction the Tyranids are going to be taking.

Please remember that these are rumors from back in August.

First up though, I want to mention that a very solid source has confirmed for me that December is definitely going to be Tyranids. That makes just too many sources confirming this change in the line up. I have to go with it.

via a strong source here on Faeit 212 from back in August
Tyranids, at least at current can ally with themselves essentially.
They have the standard:
2 HQ
6 Troops
3 Elites
3 Fast Attack
3 Heavy Support

And can take an optional

1 HQ
2 Troops (not minimum 1, up to 2, but instead MUST take 2 and then...)

And if they do, it unlocks
1 Elite
1 Fast Attack
1 Heavy Support.

Only an HQ from the core can be warlord.

Then the diversity comes into play.

Hive Fleets now have different rules (think chapter tactics). Your secondary brood can be from a different hive fleet. Not representing two fleets working together, just similar evolutionary strains.

There are also army wide FoC changes based on your Hive Tyrant. Wings give you the option to take Gargoyles as your compulsory troops (so max 2) for instance. Bonded carapace let's you take Carnifex's as elites as well as heavy support (but can't be more than a certain number of points, so they end up kinda baby).

They have some really cool adaptations for skyfire.

Warriors can be purchased as sergeant style upgrades for gaunts and gargoyles. They get the biomorphs of the brood and are not attached like wolf guard.

Tyrannofex will see a points decrease.

Pyrovore will see torrent.

Ranged biomorphs contribute to a model's close combat.
Melée biomorphs enhance a model's ranges attacks.
You take some biomorphs that affect both, like +1 str to both.
But having a gun makes melée better and having melée weapons improves your guns. There's some new synergy there. Mostly for big bugs.

Psychic ability is a lot worse than what it is now, but it'd be difficult to explain and just upset people who don't have the whole picture.
Cred to Natfka again
