Tyranid fandex v1.1

By TheGravemind

So now that I've played a few games with the new Codex, I still think it is on par with the 5th ed book, and has the same feel to it. I didn't like the 5th ed book that much, especially not in 6th edition.

So I went to my happy place, and I made a rough draft of a Fandex for myself.

The relics don't exist and are just place holders, the biomorphs rules are left in comments. Anything that isn't listed probably stayed the same. Feel free to give it a read and let me know what you think.

The Chili Waaagh apoc game

By TheGraveMind
The Wardens of Truth (Dark Angels) fight the xeno (ork) menace. I rushed to get bikers and the rest of the army assembled and primed for this event.

The Invincible Screamerstar...on a day the Chaos Gods were fickle.

By Newbreed

Hey everyone!

Newbreed here to talk about everyone's favorite list Screamerstar again.

I recently had the chance, along with TheGraveMind, to participate in a local tournament (Trial by Fire) allowing EVERYTHING from both Stronghold Assault and Escalation.  This to say the least.  Overall it was a great time run by a great local TO.

If you want to see something less focused on Screamerstar I suggest you catch his post on the Back40k blog!

Tyranids Vs Tau

By TheGraveMind

So the week before the new codex came out, I got a game in against tyranids with my tau. I talked to one of the other premier Tyranid tournament players and we set up a game. I hadn't faced him running his Nids before, and as a Nid player gone Tau, I wanted to see how I could handle it.

Tyranids Day1

By TheGraveMind

Ok, so the new book is out, and everyone is lamenting over the nut punch that has occurred. You can read that about anywhere. I'm going to try and go through the book, and give you a summary of where the hope is.

Tyranid unit leaks

By TheGravemind

Seems tyranid information is hitting the web.

Imperius Dominatus has a good summary of a lot of things.

And Dakka dakka forums have pictures from a spanish copy if you want to confirm points costs and upgrades and such. Here

Overall getting a great sense of meh, but we'll know soon enough.
