Warhammer 40K Tyranid Codex Sneak Peeks

The Hive Fleets are nearly upon us, and snippets of the codex have leaked past the watchful eyes of the Inquisition

Hive Fleet abilities all seem pretty solid. Behomoth is great for Deep Strikers, Kronos is great for Gun Lines, and Jormungandr increases overall survivability.

Faction Abilities

Strategems always add some interesting curve balls to throw your opponents way.


New Psychic powers, so you can do something other than Smite

Psychic Abilities

Genestealers gain a new way to get onto the board with “infestation” and Acid Maws will ruin anyones day.


The Index version was rather lackluster, but the Codex Carnifex gets some real love.


Carnifex 2

The Swardlord’s prehensile tail is now an additional attack, and bone swords do additional mortal wounds on a roll 6+

40K Rumors: Blue is the new Pink, Horrors that is

Blue Horrors are back in 40K, after being lost in the warp for years. For those of you don’t remember, there was a time when a Pink Horror would split into 2 Blue Horrors upon it’s death. GW, strong with nostalgia, has brough this phenomena back, and upped the ante to boot.


Now, not only do Pink Horrors split into 2 blue horrors upon their death, but Blue Horrors now split upon their demise as well. Replace each slain Blue Horror with a Brimstone Horror base (2 models, 1 base.)


Brimstone Horrors were introduced into the Warhammer Universe earlier this year when they were included in the Silver Tower Boardgame. At the moment, Silver Tower is the only official channel to aquire Brimstone Horrors. Rest assured, GW will capitalise on this and release them in their own box shortly.

Munitorum Armored Container Cache


Each container rolls in at 40pts and has Storm Bolters, the ammo dump upgrade, and the Promethium rules that popped up in the Promethium Pipeline.

They are each setup seperately, so you can pretty much wall yourself in for 120pts.
