I was looking at the tyranids page on GW last night to check out some of the models my brother was considering. (I just wiped out his space marines so hard that he is starting a new army) I noticed that the Hive Tyrant was missing, so are they redoing the model? A mythical second wave maybe?

It's still on the UK site.


Products disappear from the site all the time (and then re-appear later) - it rarely means anything.


EDIT:

Still there

My geography isn't great, but Minnesota isn't in the UK.

The Tyrant is indeed missing from the US site:

(EDIT 2: Of course, the link won't show that without changing the country in the bottom right corner of the GW site first...)

Well, there are those rumours circulating about a Tyranid second wave in February.

@ Lord Damocles: Ah yes, didn't notice that :p But I would not think any more of it :) Still one can hope....

Ok so I *AM* being picky here - models plural it says. One model missing in one country's website. Pedantic - Moi?

Anyone else think this was yet another (albeit justified) thread about the lack of Nid second wave... :shifty:

Obviously it's an embargo against North America, to punish the upstart colonies, since the model has only disappeared in the US and Canada stores.

I said models because I don't know the tyranid line, so thought maybe there could be more missing.

And it wasn't really about the lack of the second wave. More that I thought that maybe it was finally happening. But since it was just the US site the hopes are gone.

How accurate are those February rumors? I'm just about done with my IG and DG model wise so I was looking to pick up nids since no one plays them around here. 6th ed could change their viability quite alot too.

the tyrant was moved to the fine cast range if that helps

Even if the tyrant was being released in finecast, that would more likely be part of the finecast process rather than an indication of a second wave.

Weren't there also rumors of one of the plastic wave 2 models being a hive tyrant/swarmlord kit which included wings?
