This seems to be all over Facebook but i've not noticed it on here yet, so I thought I would post it up. It's from page 83 of the new Escalation book apparently. People reckon it's the new Tyranid Prime model. What do you reckon? Does look different enough to be something new.

The one in the middle has vents down it's back and different looking adrenal glands. Might just be a conversion though.

And the rumors keep on coming.

Tyranid Warriors available in both HQ (Tyranid Prime)and Troops.

- HQ Warriors function as the Prime's retinue, and do not deploy separately.
- Prime + Retinue may deploy in a Mycetic Spore.

Troops Warriors are mostly unchanged.
Updated Biomorphs.
Adrenal Glands is much improved.
Warriors cheaper in points. (75pts base for unit).


Harpy-Eirnye

- Arm design is similar to the Forgeworld Harridan.
- Wings attach to the body via 2 sets of arm slots.
- Back 2 pairs are for the wings.
- First pair of arms is reserved for various weaponry/gribblies.

If they can deploy in the Nid version of a drop pod presumably that will be in a new kit then.

Given the Prime is just a slightly better Warrior, it's entirely feasible it's based on a warrior with better armour upgrades. The picture of the warrior with th different armour plating in the middle of that pic may be the Prime, given it's an EM shot it's unlikley to be a personal conversion.

However, it's also just as likely to have been made with the new plating options on the new sprues. They have had the new ones for a good long while. And new character models in the recent past have tended to be fairly stand-out...

I guess what I'm saying is I think the new Prime will stand out a bit more than that.

I'm hoping the rumblings about something akin to a Malefactor are true...

I'm unconvinced but it would be good were it to happen, which reminds me I have no idea where my haruspex is........

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

It would make a good kit instead of another "huge thing, even bigger than the Trygon that won't fit in cases"...
