The last one was January because it was I was in my first year of Uni, me and two of my flatmates talked about getting into 40k again so when January came around with usual Xmas money to spend we would start up. I had always fancied 'Nids and since there codex had just been released I elected for them since I'd always had my eye on them while my friends went wit IG and Orks respectively.

Regarding Sky fire, I'd like Hive Guard to get it and I'd also like the Tyrannofex get it, I think it's a hugely underrated unit - in part because of the other options in Heavy - so if it has Skyfire it would make it more appealing. Biovores too because I always picture them as the things from the first Starship Troopers film that blast the ships from the sky.

I have just seen this on faeit212

via the Faeit 212 inbox.
I dropped on to Forgeworld site and noticed the Harridan is ‘Out of Stock’. Odd for a made to order model. Called FW and spoke to someone about when we could expect them back in stock here’s a summary of what I was told:

Out of stock because ‘it needed work’. So they’re doing work on it.

The model that is used to make the mould needed work. That meant it had to go to the sculptor but he’s busy doing Primarchs.

At first he had no idea when it would be available again. To my question, “If I wanted to spend my Christmas money on one of these what would you think of my chances?” his chuckled reply was “I’d say that wouldn’t be a problem”.

Maybe someone with a better knowledge of how FW works and the processes they have would be able to either squash this rumour early or lend it some weight?

I was at a tournament yesterday and there were 7 Space Marine players with a mix of various Chapter Tactics. It made it more interesting to play against them, so I fully support supplements for further variation when fighting them or other races.

Not sure there is any truth in that, from what I remember, the master sculpt isnt used to make the moulds very often, I thought the process was they take a very high quality mould from the master sculpt, then produce a very accurate resin master,which is then used to take moulds from? Besides forge world working on fixing a harridan really isnt likely to have much to do with what GW is doing with nids, months can pass between the codex release and any new forge world stuff ,look at the tau and eldar codexs as examples.

Some more rumors this time from BOLS

Quote:
via Bigred over on the Bols Lounge
Tyranids
-Tyranids kick off 2014
-An emphasis on making EVERY unit in the codex viable this time around
-The army rules and theme are focused on adaptability of unit abilities and inter-unit synergy
-Emphasis on model releases will be to get out all the missing models in the previous codex
-Look for a small number of highly specialized new units to shore up 6th edition deficiencies in the army
-A new unseen big bug kit is among these

Tyranid-hunters
-Ultramarine Tyranic War Veteran Supplemental codex is the next supplemental book coming, to tie into the release and to provide worthy foes for the hive-fleets.
-BOTH digital and physical versions out in Q1 2014

And again, *nothing* in that rumour that couldn't be applied to every new codex release. I think it's safe to say there is nothing out there at present that isn't a generic new release rumour.

There are 2 rules to being a success in life:
1) Never give out all the information

I agree. I'm slowing dieing from lack of good rumours But a rumour is rumor no matter how bad it.

40K Rumors - Zoanthropes HO!
Posted by Larry Vela at 10/30/2013 16 Comments

It's about time. The first set of miniatures rumors have arrived. Here is a rundown of the purported new Zoanthrope. Here we go!


via the whispers in the wind...

First off, as with our previous rounds of rumors some ratings.

We rate these possible, coming from mixed sources

Zoanthropes

-Multipart plastic kit makes 3 models.
-Flying bases.
-3 base bodies in the kit, 2 tails are coiled, one is curling slightly forward.
-Back plates and chests are identical for the three. These are wider and slightly taller than the current model. The base tail piece has 2 tiny claws that go on, but are not normal Tyranid ball sockets. The torso has 4 arm sockets. For these models the claw arms are similar to hormagaunt claws, but shorter. Kit contains a dozen arms, most are retracted, four are extended out. All are small atrophied limbs compared to other Tyranids. Two rows of back-vents.
- Multipart heads. There are separate pieces per head to make the mouths have more dimension. One has its tongue out, curling to the side. One closed mouth, one mouth is wide open. The head plate is wider and has a spiked ridge. The brains are exposed, no eyes.
-Tail loses the current model's spiked end.
-Slightly larger than the current model.
-Fundamentally an evolutionary kit from the current Zoanthrope to meet the requirements of injected plastic production.

~Hmm, so this set of descriptions is ONLY for the zoanthrope, but I'm betting there is an alternative critter in that kit. Venomthrope maybe - or something entirely new?
Have at it
