For those who want something beyond mere conjecture, but can't wait to hold the codex in their hands, Natfka has a new post with some "legit" rules and information:

http://natfka.blogspot.com/2014/01/w...x-in-hand.html

I would still take it with a grain of salt until actually holding the book myself. Even leaks from someone with the codex can be wrong, or incomplete.

Judging by the responses to that post, you'd think the sky is falling!

Seems like they're getting some nice point drops in their principle units. It's probably not going to be TauDar level, but it sounds like it will at least make them competitive and fun to play.

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

Hmmmm. I am dubious about these posts, if only because he says very little, and if he has the codex in his hands then why so vague and inaccurate? And it's little things like he says Raveners 'lose MTC and Acute senses', but doesn't mention if they are Beasts still, who get those automatically...

I agree with the sentiment that he seems to just be reading from the summary page at the back.

There are 3 more days to wait. Hints are nice, but he's putting such a downer on this I'm not even sure he plays nids, he's not giving any hints that most nid players *actually* would want. And his posts on the new instinctive behaviours make pretty much zero sense, when he could just *say*. Hell, I got more accurate stuff, and legally posted it here, just from reading WD.

I do agree with some of the reasonable posts underneath though. No way are they going to charge 4pts per scything talons for 'stealers if all they do is give AP6, and +1A if you have 2 pairs (which stealers can't do)...

What we need is the whole picture, because as always you can't look at any part of the Tyranid codex in isolation. Its all about how they work as a whole. I'm happy to wait with what we've got for definate, and the rest can wait until saturday.

This seems to be the issue. From what it seems he is excited be the first to share the information (what he can remember), but it doesn't feel like he has any experience with the army itself. He didn't look where an experienced player of the army would to find the important bits of information for comparison with the current codex.

Why on earth, when he says he has the codex, does he need to 'remember' it? Open the book and get it right!

Post-it note on a shop copy, methinks

Could be...according to the poster it is a club copy that he doesn't have "on hand"...the delayed nature of his posts between information seems to support that the copy is not in his hands at the very least. Whether a shop copy or club copy who knows. More accurate posters should have the book in hand tomorrow or Thursday.

At this point I know what I want to know - my Hormogaunts are still worth it, I love the new Haruspex model and will have one regardless, and my carnifexes are cheaper. The rest is all a bonus, and can wait til saturday.

Well that seals it for me. Since I'm not buying anything Cruddace has had his finger in, I guess I can't buy anything anymore.
