This kinda came out of left field. According to a source on Faeit looks like Mat Ward is set to pen an upcoming Tyranids Book.

Plus apparently more chatter about some new units, and changes to existing units as well.

Standard disclaimers apply here kids as this is some heavy stuff… -MBG

From Faeit
Tyranids. Seen much of these lately on the tabletop? Not so much for a while now, but they are still out there. Here are a few rumors giving us a loose time frame for a codex release, as well as some new units.


Please remember that these are rumors, early rumors at that, so please apply as the author mentions.

Q4 2013 40k goes to Eldar supposedly, so will be early/late Q4 2013/Q1 2014.  May be Q3 2013.  Not entirely sure.  There will be a codex release and there may be a WD/model release earlier.  That would push the codex back though.

Kit released for harpy that will make a second FMC – current playtest name hydra.  Harpy will remain anti-infantry, hydra to be anti flyer/vehicle.
Synapse will go back to giving eternal warrior – and instinctive behavior will be radically changed.
For other new kits – nothing major.  Prime plastic kit, shrike upgrade pack, and lastly, a new MC that is built off of infiltrating and will have a snacking rule similar to the fantasy ghorgon.

next two Rumors should be taken with even more salt then normal – there will be multiple large plastic kit that is a multiple option kit that can make warriors/zoanthropes/lictors, one that can make venomthropes/raveners, and one that will make biovores/pyrovores and one for tyrant guard/hive guard.  The finecast models are getting changed up a bit – will move to plastic.  Also, some of these kits may be condensed into one box.  Secondly – Ward is writing the dex.  Extra salt here folks – extra salt.

 Once again, keep in mind this is a long ways off and these are playtest rules.
