me as well, course it depends on how viable nidzilla turns out to be, If nidzilla works out well then I will be double tempted to jump in to the swarm with some nice robot proxys, if not then it's 'Daemons' of 'choas' for me.

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.

I suppose it depends on how the units perform in the next codex if this is a good deal or not, but for a guy like me who is thinking about starting a Nid army with no prior nids, seems like a great deal. Although there doesn't appear to be an HQ, which makes me wonder if you can make a Carnifex/Old One Eye an HQ now...

Hopefully should be a very good set if you want to build/expand a horde style nid army. All being well, they'll be solid choices and it'll give people a chance to get a good start on an army with a good saving built in - the old boxed set was pretty average since the Warriors and Genestealers were pretty average.

Has this been mentioned at all elsewhere as I would like to believe it was true,
however i'm finding this slightly less convincing then the fox "santa is white" argument

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?

All carnifex kit's have the option to make one eye, the plastic kit always has had the option

I was thinking they were inferring something a little more stand out one eye-ish (admittedly I can't clearly envision the pieces in the carnifex kit)

They have the options to make a carnifex with the same wargear and upgrades. Nothing out of that kit however comes close to resembling this:



Or this:



Personally I wouldn't mind a newer OOE model, but I would also prefer if it keeps the imagery of the older carnifex models. Just to set it apart as it should be.

the carnifex kit includes old one eyes damaged right hand side of his head, its been sitting on the sprue since it went into production many moons ago and as you say is armed as any other fex so i seriously doubt you will see a new kit ever, personally i dont like that era of tyranids or the previous (advanced hero quest) period, the current crop, though similar, feels much more refined and serious, that metal one eye and the "alien queen" hive tyrant just felt too goofy and the the original nid warriors and the screamer killer still make me bring up a little bit of sick in to my mouth when is see them and im not prepared.

The problem then was that the sculpting couldn't compare to the artwork. Look at Forgeworld's Alien Queen Hive Tyrant. It's brilliant, and it resembles the old artwork almost perfectly.





Nowadays Gw sculpting is up to par. They could definitely make something for Old One Eye that does his artwork justice.

The normal carnifex just doesn't do it.


And anyway, that's just what I want, nothing to do with what's actually coming out.

Puts hands over Dave the Hive Tyrant's ears (admittedly with nids the ears could be in the groin)

The screamer killer is brilliant in a kind of cartoony tyranids way and admittedly not any other way
