Did forgeworld release an 6th edition update to include the Malanthrope's Psychic level? I can't seem to find the FAQ's on their site.

In fact have they released an FAQ for the forgeworld tyranid units in general?

Rumors are FW is going to Faq everything and they will be on the GW website.. but rumors are rumors.... anyways....

It is based on how many powers it can use, Zoans can use 1 so they are 1, Broodlords can use 1 , tyrants use 1 so they all are level 1, Swarmlord can use 2 so he is a 2.... how many powers can the Malanthrope use in a single turn? and thats what level it is. Well until the Faws come out..

Oh... P.s....

If FW does faq everything then I might get and use the Malanthrope.

Taking a PoM and units of rippers (they cant be Instant kill if within 12'' or 24"?) but that opens up the nids list ALOT, making rippers and PoM able to just be used is a cool idea.

It has 2 powers it can use, so most likely be Mastery level 2, try and get Bio with FnP and other unit buffy things will make it even better... at the same points as a upgrade Tervigon for an HQ I never thought it was worth it, but now at 2K youc an take 4 HQs or just having 2 Powers MC might be worth it.

I'm not sure, it will depend on the FAQ. The Malanthrope just seems okay for its point cost. It isn't a MC or GC so it doesn't get a lot of benefits I would expect for its point cost and requirements.

TBH, everyone forgets that Tyranids have another other Apocalypse Psyker.

Oh what's its name again... It starts with Hiero, ends with phant...

It isn't that I forgot about the Bio-Titan, it just more that I have no hope of being able to afford a £228.00 (+ shipping from the UK) model, where my budget does allow for an eventual Malanthrope which regularly go for a reasonable price on E-bay.

can it use two per turn, or has two powers to choose?

If the latter is the case, bad news: every other Tyranid psyker becides the swarmlord has mastery 1.

3 to choose from can use 2 per turn, and I think 1 you can by to replace one of the 3.... been awhile sense I read the rules...


Can we use Apoc in normal rule games now over 2k? I would love to use titans in normal games instead of a whole nother rules set.

at least make a few titans that can be used in normal game play!

Like the none Garg MC ones. (or make some without that abilitly)

I would love to buy a Barbed Heirodule (spelling?) but I want to play it in normal games and will not buy it unless I play it at least once a month if not more for the next 10 years lol.

not much actual help on the malanthrope, but forgeworld HAS been FAQ-ing everything (although i havent seen the malanthrope on any yet, lots on IA9 though)

Agreed. I similarly would like to play with the truly large creatures but I can't justify the expense if I'm not going to be able to play with them more then once a year.

Barbed Hierodule is awesome. It's like a Flyrant, except with 12-ish str10 shots, tougher, and more fishy :P

No doubt. Sadly though it seems the Forge World rumors have been dispelled so the poor Hierodule will stay on shelves except for the occasional Apocalypse game.
