Looking closely at what little you can see in the very poorly taken pics in this age of "even my daughter's toy phone takes better pictures than that", these appear to show prices for things like warriors and hormogaunts (no-one takes them without toxin sacs) having not changed at all.
Exactly. Even Genestealers' cost stays the same, yet their stats are unchanged.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

I doubt this is an actual "leak". But, hey, we'll know in a couple weeks.

Well it's certainly not a leek anyway

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?

New Pics.

First the Tyranid Swarm box. Not too bad for $170.


New Crone pics.



And finally the dual-Carnifex kit.


Definitely thinking of grabbing that swarm box and a couple Carnifex boxes depending on how the book turns out.

I *really* hope Carnifexes are viable this time. I love my 'fexes, and have 5 waiting to be assembled. I remember when they could be elites if they were below 90 points...

Please, please make them more like Dreadnought choices...

I find my 'Fexes still quite useful bailing out of pods behind Leman Russ tanks. But, well, I'm crazy.

Tyranids are going to have 3 supplements: Leviathan, Kraken, and Jormungandr. It is going to be a swarmy one, a nydzilla one and an infiltration one. But GW hasn't started to write them yet so anything may come.
There are advanced, basic, experimental, etc biomorphs.
Shadow in the Warp is a 12" bubble of -4 ld for enemy psych test, but also grants units the 5+ to deny.
No way to make Warriors viable, according to him the Eternal Warrior rumors are wrong.
Toxins Sacs may be the same, according to him the wording was poison 4+ to the attacks, not making any distinction between CC and ranged.

Flesh Hooks are assault grenades and d6 S6 ap5 rending and precision shoots.
Adrenals Glands give Furious Charge and the +3" run.
Scything Talons give an additional attack.
No Doom of Malan'tai, Parasite and Mycetic Spores.
Regeneration gives IWND.
Catalyst gives +1 to FNP and IWND.
Venom Cannon is S9 ap4 2 shots.
Deathspitter is back to being a blast.
Barbed Strangler is st6 ap5 and must take a S test or take d6 st4 ap3 hits.
Stranglethorn Cannon is the same but S8 and pinning.

These sound promising. I'll be sad to see Parasite go, can't say I'll really miss the Doom though.
