Tyranid Rumors

New Tyranid Codex CoverNow that GW has announced the release of the new Tyranid codex for January rumors are flying! Some people who know people that were at Games Day UK have said various things - some great and some are intriguing. Rumors are flying about what will be in the new codex and what new models will be released: plastic Trygon (very likely), a plastic Harridan (who knows?), Malenthrope able to be used in normal 40k games (good chance... will be nice to use mine more often), plastic gargoyes (would be very nice and a very good probability), new metal biovore (pretty good possibility), and new army builds.

Here's my take... I can see them adding the Harridan, Trygon, and the Malenthrope in the codex. The IG codex has stuff like the Medusa, Manticore, and Deathstrike Missile. Those are all Forge World models but you can convert your own or buy the FW kits and have rules to use these in a regular game. Now as for plastic models, we'll have to wait and see. I'm very excited for the new codex either way. Cruddace did a great job with Guard without reinventing them. He really brought out the way they should be played... keeping the flavor but adding some new things and taking out some old. So keep your fingers crossed he does the same with the new Tyranids.
