I'm not impressed by the idea of supplements. It would be very easy to add some alternative FOC options into the regular codex. Like a hive tyrant with wings allowing the option to take gargoyles and shrikes as troops, at the expense of warriors and genestealers being shunted into elites (for example)

No. No no no no no. Keep moving things around like that for in supplements.

A couple of options, like the 'Tervigons can be troops if', are fine, but altering the whole list in the main book? Anyone else here remember the Chaos Codex that did that? It was a nightmare to find any rules, extremely complicated and bloody horrible to navigate.

No, have the basic rules for everyone in the main codex, and if you want to play tetris with the foc then you get a supplement that lets you do just that.

Supplements are keeping things interesting for sure. Getting ready for a game you see your opponent unpacking Tau models and start forming one strategy only to see the Farside Enclave supplement come out. For me, I'll probably just stick to the main codex for my armies. But that's a $ issue. I rather like them adding more variety.

Anyway, back to Nids. It seems the bugs gaining some kind of Skyfire is popular. How do people feel about this idea I had? Hive Guard "see" through the swarm, so if you have something in the army that is flying(FMC or maybe jump infantry), they gain Skyfire. It's a simple solution and fits the existing background.

Well, judging by the front cover of November's WD being Dark Elf reinforcements 'Nids will - at the earliest - be the january release as December rarely sees anything but a LotR / Hobbit release...

I'm not sure i understand this logic.

what does WD having dark elves preclude the Nids from getting a dex that month?

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.

Because if Nids got a new Codex, new miniatures and stuff, They would surely make it to the cover of WD instead of the second wave of the army released last month.
Furthermore, a lot of rumors have been stating for several weeks that the Codex has been pushed back to January

I was under the impression that the WD that was released here in October was Dark Elves and that the WD for November hasn't been revealed yet.

Did I miss something?

Nids have been set for January since March 1885, or at least a long while 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?
