Nid'bits....

Post  Guardian Angel on Wed Oct 14, 2009 9:08 am

Hey all,

I stumbled upon some new Nid rumors.....no idea how reliable they are....

--> Genestealers = Elites. However, Broodlord HQ makes them Troops.....probably like the Warboss rule for Nobs
--> Warriors = ?? (but I am guessing Elites). However, Hive Tyrant makes them TROOPS!!!! yikes.....all Tyrants and Warriors armies....could be fun.
--> Gaunts = 3 points, Hormaguants = 6 points. they are trying to push the Horde side of Nids
--> Alpha Lictor?? No idea what this is supposed to be
--> New Psychic powers

One of the hero types from Dawn of War 2.

Good to hear.. these initial tidbits are really promising.

I love the idea of warriors as troops. 3 point gaunts and 6 hormaguants are definitely needed to be in line with the other horde type lists.

Id be pretty dame scared if a couple hundred hormagaunts lined up in front of me.

Not to mention if they all had Without Number!!! lol....

Why do I have a feeling that we will see a line of synapse creatures from his deployment to frontline to become standard formation for a Nid player?

read this on BoLS today

Pyrovore: (rumored to be a fire-based biovore variant giving the nids a strong indirect fire option)
Toxathrope: (probably the bug above, and sounding like a minor variant of a malanthrope/zoanthrope based on its name, size, and appearance)
Trygon: (the big guy himself, but still no word of whether its in the codex, or Apocalypse only)

with a pic of a new creature

One of the funniest things was in the comments on BOLS regard to this post.

I believe the guy wrote something along these lines:

Pyrovore, how original.. I can play this game!

Boltothrope - A Zoanthrope that shoots bolter rounds from it's mouth.



I dont know why, I found that damn funny. I really hope they'd create better minis thatthe current biovores.. those things are god awful ugly and look completely out of place in the nid line. They are pure garbage.

I think the new model here looks pretty cool though.

The model in the picture is supposedly the new Venomthrope (Toxathrope in German, as per the original)

Plastic gargoyles are almost 100% confirmed. Not to mention it would be bloody stupid for GW not to release them as plastic kits. Metal models on a flying base? No thanks.

The Trygon is ubiquitously confirmed for the new codex.

Termagants and Hormagaunts have been split up into different boxes, probably 8-12 each. US MSRP is around $24 per box (more price hikes, yay...). Expect Canadians to pay even more because of the outdated exchange rates GW uses.

Genestealers = Elites. However, Broodlord HQ makes them Troops.....probably like the Warboss rule for Nobs
This one has been debunked, and as such, I won't believe it until I have the print copy of the codex sitting in front of me.


I had an entire product list stolen from DakkaDakka and Warseer complete with MSRPs and product names, but I can't find it. If I stumble upon it I'll post it.
