Were there any new Tyranid formations in Apocalypse or any other recent supplement I may have missed? Because for the last 6 months or so there have been 3 new Leviathan Carnifexes with red faces in the museum on the EM army shelf that weren't in the last codex, nor the 40k rulebook. And if the book is due for release in november, it's been done and dusted about that long...

I've got pics on my desktop somewhere, I'll see if I can dig them out, or I'll get new ones on wednesday

These are the three I meant. Have they been in any publications I've missed?

Ah, I don't have the latest Apoc book. Though - a Crusher Brood? With only one set of crushing claws? Current rules have a Brood needing to all be armed the same...

Some new rumours:

Quote:
via the Bols Lounge:
Release will emphasize new plastic kits.
Every missing model will ship with the release.
Smaller amount of new unseen models, higher amount of reworked existing models.
All old metal models replaced with new plastic kits (aka NO finecast survives)
Roughly 10+ new models in the release (including replacement kits and combo-kit build options)
January 2014

That's been true of every release for a good while now...

All via BOLS
Quote:
Hivefleet (Big Bugs - not real title 2014)
Focuses on Monstrous Creatures. Book adds variant rules for deployment and FOC changes for units like the Carnifex, letting you take them in both Heavy and Elites, plus the ability to operate independently. Hivefleet balances this with some prohibited units, and the inability to go first in any mission.

Hivefleet (Fast Bugs - not real title ???)
Focuses on high speed fast-moving bugs. FOC changes to emphasize these units such as Gargoyles as Troops, new abilities and special rules for Ravenors, while Gants get minor enhancements as well. This hivefleet is balanced by prohibiting "traditional" walking Monstrous Creatures. A new flying HQ unit is included.

Genestealer Cult (???)
The first "hybrid supplement" - this book will be a combined book for IG and Tyranids. It allows both codices to ally, but heavily restricts units selections on both. Look for smaller "infiltration bugs" such as Genestealers, Broodlords, Lictors and such from the Tyranid side while the Guard are very heavily restricted on units and heavy equipment. The list's HQ must include a psyker warlord from either the IG or Tyranid units allowed. A new psychic power list is included.

If true, those Tyranid supplements sound interesting. But I just hope the codex is fun to play. Supplements are just icing.

Not much of an addition to what's already been said, but:

I feel that flying Hive tyrants will become quite formidable in the new book. Unless GW stops the tradition of them being the solution to pretty much everything. Ha.

Can we take a stab in the dark on the supplement books names?

There are three major hivefleets, Behemoth, Kraken and Leviathan.

Behemoth was 'swarmy' as evidenced by the the fact that fluff on the first tyannic was stresses just how many there are.

Kraken was the infiltrator, I remember that much.


leaving Leviathan as the big bug guy.

love the idea of supporting swarm and Nid-zilla style play. if i can field a army of all monsters, i may just start that robot nid army a bit earlyer then i planned too.

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.
