First off are some box sets of some old models.
The swarm loadout is a great deal if the rumored price of $170 is true. Supposedly there is a couple of new boxes of guants and hormagaunts with 20 models in the box for $33. If this is true I think I might get one of each to round out my little gribblies.
The other box is 2 carnifex While I love the look of the carnifex I don't see them being all that useful anymore. A few people using the dakkafex (2 twin linked brain leach devourers) with is not a bad gun platform if you drop it down in a spore pod. The problem is that the rumors have the spore pod being retconed out of the codex and the devourers being nerfed to S5. Again these are rumors. Maybe there is a way to make the Carnifex viable again. *Crosses fingers*
The next image is of the Exocrine next to the Tyranofex.
This is the flaw with all our big bug option. It is just really hard to keep them on the board long enough now to be worth taking. The way I have been winning is with swarm tactics. If I can overwhelm them with bodies I can get into the ranks and take out some bodies. It almost worked for me my last game against the Tau and iff it wasn't for some bad tactical maneuvers on my part and forgetting the tyrant guard. I would have had a good chance at winning that game too. It is just not a big bug game anymore. I guess before I get the model I can playtest it with my T-fex model. I just need to get a big oval base for it.
This brings us to our last pic.
Well that is all the new pictures that I have found. There was one more of the crone but it pretty much was the same pic just painted red. I am still excited about the new codex. if rumors are to be believed the advanced order will pop up Jan 4 with a release on the 11th. I feel like we are getting another balanced codex just like in 5th. This will mean that the powergamers with quickly move on to the next big thing or stick with the taudar. This will mean bargins on ebay! Woot!
