Is it possible its a new unit (a Broodlord Prime)

Doesnt Shield of Baal list 6 new Datasheets and 6 new formations? There were only 5 new kits in WD so far...

Maybe it's an uber brood lord. I doubt that they would change the make up of the genestealers squad in the codex. But stranger things have happened. I hope it's still a squad upgrade. I have 140 of the buggers and 2 space hulk brood lords. I'd love to pick up a few of these new ones.

Its not out of the question. They've already changed Zoanthropes with the new kit by upping the number of models in a unit up to 6 and adding the Nuerothrope upgrade character.

I was just thinking that. I'd like to see more Primes, and removing the Broodlord as a "sergeant" upgrade would just be silly.

They certainly couldnt make the genestealer unit worse by changing it.

Not that GW would necessarily care, but it would totally invalidate the large numbers of Broodlord models people have purchased over the years. Besides, having that enormous thing be the new "sergeant" would be awful.

Awful how? lol. It's a big snippy clawed brood leader beast- with psychic powers too I might add.

Don't get me wrong, I like the model. There are a few reasons why I don't want it to replace the current Broodlord, and would prefer it as a "Prime" (HQ). The main one is that I don't want every Genestealer brood to have a giant walking among them. Also, if it replaced the current Broodlord, the model would not suit the rules unless they changed them. If they made it as scary as it should be, then every Genestealer brood would have access to the super-Broodlord, and it would invalidate actual Genestealers even more (they would just be extra wounds for a miniature Carnifex).

Imagine if Dreadnoughts replaced Space Marine Sergeants. That's kind of the problem.

What is the thing near the centre, to the left of the Tervigon?

Any more silly than when they changed the HQ Broodlord and made 'im a Sergeant?

The thing between the Tervigon and the Termagant brood? Just looks like a Hive Guard to me, the rest of his brood is hiding behind the rubble and termagants to the left of him.

There were only 5 new models, but the Zoanthropes received a rules update, so I believe they will be the 6th Datasheet, with 6 Formations rounding it out to twelve. Also, the fact that there are already six new datasheets, and 6 new Formations means the listed total of twelve has been reached, since I doubt Nids will get another book anytime soon. I'm going to go ahead and say we aren't getting any new units (like the GMC mentioned a while back) for a long time. But, I would expect new models, like the Broodlord, at some point when they release a campaign box.

Aye, the datasheets are:
- Toxicrene
- Maleceptor
- Tyrannocyte
- Sporocyst
- Mucolid Spore Cluster
- Updated Zoanthrope Brood

And we already know of at least he existence of these formations (although not their exact rules):
- Skytyrant Swarm
- Hypertoxic node

So that leaves four more formations, warlord traits and a detachment. Maybe some new relics?

Well thats several easy ways of getting 4 Flyrants into one CAD + Formation.

I knew the drop pod formation was too good to be true though.

Edit: That Skytyrant node is disappointing, Why would you want a Majority T3 hive Tyrant that cannot fly?

Detachment is the best!!!!!! 3 Flyrants without self-allying!!!!!

Also a gargoyle unit with a Hive Tyrant upgrade is interesting. A little sad that they reprinted the Skyblight Swarm instead of a new formation

Hypertoxic Node seems really great.

Allows you to take the venoms without wasting a slot, in addition it doesn't specify the HT has to be walking, so you now get your Tyrant with Instant death.

It even improves the Toxicrene... Seems pretty good to me!
