I'll admit I'm worried about the new tyrannids, but It seems Cruddance knows his stuff. The Trygon hole looks like a constricted version of deep strike, especially with the restriction of no assaulting the turn reserves arrive. The drop podding zoanthropes and carnifexes are what I think most armies will be worried about, but unless they have some AP 4 ignores cover weapons at range, I think my Tau can still out maneuver the Nids and escape.
It will be a bit of a slap in the face to be knocked off the top of the BFG totem pole, but it isn't the end of the world. Still am grumbling about the Zoanthropes being a terminator and one half in points. Most armies should have a way to cancel this, as it's a psychic power. Some of the older codices should be in the best shape, baring Space Wolves. The Inquisitorial model psychic hood (DH, WH, DA, ¿BA?) C:SM psychic hood, Runes of Warding, the Crucible of Malediction, and even Weaken Resolve should go a long way to stopping the psychic tank busters. I'll just trust in markerlights and rapid fire.
On a different note, I want to thank and congratulate all of my fellow Heretics for holding yourselves (for the most part) to a much higher level and not degenerating into the whining fest that BoLS comment threads tend toward.
That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.
