Really hoping the New codex does not suck

Really hoping the New codex does not suck

Post by TyrantEatos » Thu Jan 09, 2014 8:05 pm

So after looking all over the internet I came across so leaked pics of the new codex. After reading the pages it seems like it will not be the codex I was expecting. I really hope I saw a fake one. In a few day I will no for sure, but right now Im scared.

It's not looking overly promising. The loss of Scything Talons re-rolls, BRB psykic powers and Mycetic Spores will be huge, but almost all the things we still have seem to have gotten a little better. Not nearly as good an update as Tau or Eldar, but (possibly) still better than what we had before

well whatever way it goes it looks like Tervigon spam is gone. Lost a mastery level, synapse explosion was doubled in range as i understand, only unlocks with a FULL unit of termagaunts, termagaunts spawned by tervigon cannot move the turn they spawn, can only run or shoot, increased points cost, loss of biomancy...pretty huge nerf.

The loss of scything talon rerolls makes the Trygon i was gifted for Christmas to start my new Tyranids army pretty bad...so I'm out, time to choose a different second army.

bone swords are ap 3
the newer units just look kinda stupid
not as bad as the stormraven but still pretty bad

If allowed Id use the 4ed edition book

Got the book :)
boneswords are ap but got life drain (on a 6s to wound = instant death) also in monsters obviously are better with ap2

Crushing claws are the tyranid´s powerfist with +1S ap2 armourbane..

Seems awesome the book really and some funny rules..

I'll play a few games before making up my mind, but I'm really nervous about this. It looks like this codex is even more restrictive and punishing than the last.

*Scything Talons no longer give re-rolls.

*Spawned Termagants can no longer move or assault.

*Tyranid Prime, Rippers, and Hive Guard get points increases for no reason.

*Trygon Tunnels still don't work, and Mycetic Spores are gone now.

*No more Biomancy for anything.

*No 2+ save for anything that isn't a Tyrannofex.

*The only Existing units that got better were Tyrannofexes, Carnifexes, and Venomthropes. Everything else is the same or worse.

It does indeed. Also worth noting, I actually do have the codex in hand, I'm not just repeating rumors. If anyone has any questions I'm happy to depress you further. :(

well then........looks like they will be dusty a lot longer
Maybe just maybe they will add the pod and doom back in later like they have been doing with things like cypher

the tyranids are trickier to play, no more amateur to pop a win out of this.
Still they got worst really in most units, not the same cheese.

Now you want to win with nids? or go all monster mash and get enough psykers to get luck on the Fnp to buff all your monsters or go the obvious horde and swarm your oponent..
Horde of non tervigon types....
