Well, not for you Imperial players.

 

 

This video seems to tease at a new Tyranid codex being announced on the fourth of January!

If you listen carefully, you will hear a sound effect that sounds very similar to one used for the Tyranids in DoW2.

 

I'm very excited! Hopefully they won't fuck it up this time...

And make Carnifexes good again. Putting the cost the same as a fucking Land Raider was not on. At all. Fucking Cruddance...

 

Woo!

You mean ....... my Tyranid army might be useful again?

Maybe... Maybe...

 

The 3 main things I want are as follows:

 

1. Fix the Carnifex pricing

Seriously, Land Raider level point cost and all they really did is give Carnifexes +2 Initiative on the charge? The bonus doesn't help anyway, because you're still going after anything that is a Space Marine (the most commonly used army, in my experience) or Space Elf.

 

2. Give Lictors the ability to charge after they appear. they need it

Because of the current assault rules meaning Lictors will get first strike against anything that isn't a greater daemon or Space Elf, no one's gonna be stupid enough to charge them when it's a lot safer to blast their face off with short range firepower.

Even then, if a Lictor charges, it's gonna be torn to pieces by overwatch fire because they are very frail. Maybe giving them protection against the overwatch (more on this in a second) would make them more viable.

People will bitch and whine, but it makes complete sense from a fluff point of view. A lictor isn't deep-striking. It has been in the ambush position for days, waiting for its target to show up. All the Lictor is doing when it shows up is removing it's camouflage and taking people by complete surprise.

 

3. Protection against Overwatch!

One of the main reasons (at least for me) why Tyranids are so terrible in 6th is all down to the overwatch system. As an army, numbers are one of the only things we got over the others and overwatch allows them to negate that pretty easily. The other "horde" armies, Orks and Imperial Guard, have ways around this. Orks have higher toughness, with makes them better than us at taking less wounds and Imperial Guard have better armour, plus they don't tend to be charging much anyways.

 

All of our "ambush units", the Ravener, the Lictor and the Genestealer are all far too fragile, but making them tougher would balance it the other way.

 

Hmm... that's all I got for now.

 

Here's hoping for galaxy-wide feasting!
