Just got my new tyranid codex. I had started playing 40k by about just before last winter with nids. Must say, lots of fun and awesome stuff! I love the fact that I can play lots of different nid armies. Must say that having genestealers with FOF really makes my herd tatic better, plus now people have to ld test to shoot at my non MC's.

Cool job GW!

I'm tempted to run an all-genestealer army to go up against my Deathwing army and relive SPACE HULK

Cool job GW!

WOO! Mark it on the calendar, some one made a positive coment about GW! :p

From what I've seen the new nid codex does look very well done compared to some codex books.

Also bucking the recent trend...the 'nid codex seems less powerful than its predeccessor!

With several points increases for the tyrant, fex, lictor and some units becoming much worse like the gargoyles, biovores etc...

Much better overall but a clear downgrade in power over when it was first released in 3rd ed.

I am happy with this Codex. It seems balanced and characterful. Now let's see how it performs on the battlefield...

It would be cool if there was a revival of Space-hulk with the advent of the new nid-codex...

Have you not seen the very cool adapted kill-team rules in the latest BG webzine? - Space Hulk (http://us.games-workshop.com/games/40k/gaming/spacehulk/default.htm)

some things may seem less powerful but it is balanced out with things like stealers can get a better save, the fex gets tons o new upgrades, and weapons are better.

As a Tau player and used to spotting Lictors automatically with any of the Suit types - how do the Lictors work now and are they affected in any way by Auspects/Scanners etc?
