Tervigons that can spawn hormogaunts, who can charge after running? And you can choose for doubles not to run out? O.o

I think my brain just melted with happiness. *If* it's true. As WHW won't have the codex til it's release shipping, which will be just before it goes on sale, and no tours go through the Studio any more, which is the only place the codex will be right now.

Yes, that Tervigon stuff looks insanely too strong to be true. It's already powerful to spawn Termagaunts that can charge anything within 8-18" the turn they arrive, I can't see it being Hormagaunts with Poison and the charge bubble 12-27" (Holy moly if those Adrenal Glands + Bounding Leap rumours are true that's a huge threat range for Hormas)

Furthermore the Exocrine weapon has already been stated by multiple rumours to be some sort of giant bio-plasma canon (S7 AP2), right?

I'll temporary leave my cave to comment on those.
personally I'd expect something accurate in the coming week i.e. something this pile of text is not.

Flesh Hooks are assault grenades and d6 S6 ap5 rending and precision shoots.
Second looks like wishlist. Cannot imagine 9 Tyranid Warriors throwing 9d6 precision shots - can you?

Adrenals Glands give Furious Charge and the +3" run.
Opposes all what we know for example about Horms = disproven.
Unless there are different effects for monstrous creatures and such and different for little fellas,

Harpy:
140 points
Cheaper.

Fast Attack unit
Yes.

Also carries spore mines
Yes.

Born in the Skies: Can't be grounded
No idea.

Crone:
170 points
Cheaper.

Fast Attack unit
Yes.

"Exocrine":
Heavy Support unit
3 S10 ap3 shoots or 1 S10 ap2 large blast ordnance
Nope. Six small shots, one large, but not that strong.

Hive Guard:
New gun is Spike Cannon, S7 ap4 2 shoots with Skyfire, enemy must reroll successful grounding tests
From the description of the weapon I doubt it can be skyfire. The weapon, but it doesn't mean that the unit will not be able to from its basic gun.

Lost Blinding Venom
No, still have it.

Hormagaunts:
5 points
Bounding Leap is charge after running
No it is not.
.
Swarmlord:
Mastery Level 3
Yep, what I said before.

Venomthropes;
30 points:
Nope. Add quite much to the cost - about the cost of a Marine.

I know nothing much above what we already know by this point, but clears some air.

(brrrtttt) why so vauge? we all know by now whats coming out, so why not just cut it loose? not like a few days early is going to affect the quality of the sculpts.

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.

That's something I see quite a lot on the internets and it bugs me a little bit: the internet community is NOT all of GW's consumer base. Probably not even the majority of it.

Then again it is true that, contrary to the last few teasers I remember, this one does not even show glimpses of the models to come.
