Thing is limits come and go. This edition Hive Tyrants are restricted back down to 1; next edition they are wide open again.


GW tends to react to feedback in a very wide swing when they do. It creates big shifts in things


Builds going invalid is why I say that any model warrior sized or bigger should have magnetic arms. Especially when Tyranids are like tanks in that their roles are defined by their weapons which can come and go in popularity, effectiveness and legality on the table.

I do very much agree its disheartening when a build isn't just made a bit less effective by slight changes in the rules but is outright removed or invalidated or made super impossible to take.

I'm still building my last Hive Tyrant with the Fleshborer Hive arms from the Tyrannofex. Rules or no, that's my "double double devourer" Hive Tyrant.

Honestly consider how popular that model was I'm kinda surprised GW invalidated it. I mean I know the reason is management policy instead of rules; but its a clear example of gap, esp since they did technically sell the arms AND as they are putting FW into the main GW site one would have thought a simple set of twinlink devourers would have stuck around to facilitate the official nature of a model build that's been popular since, well, forever

The option isn't part of the kit. That's the only reason they need.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the only reason that the Carnifex can still take double twin Devourers despite only having one pair on the sprue is because them come two to a box, and therefore technically you can still make the config by combining both sprues.

I'd settle for an update to the Tyranids Legends document to include the now-missing items.

This thread deserves to be resurrected due to the current CSM codex leaks being proven correct. No Jump Pack Lords (EVEN THOUGH ONE EXISTS), Chaos Marines are stuck doing the Loyalist "no more than one of each weapon because that's all in the kit", Chosen lost any ability to take Power Fists, and the Terminators are about as expected.

Can't wait to see the defense for this one!

Nah, they'll get their own book 2 years from now. In the meantime they can use BA or RG rules.

the jump pack lord isnt sold by GW anymore...

But yeah, loadouts and loss of jump pack HQs is sad

Good thing theyre things that you can easily not care about. I know i'll still be running my jump HQs and that my termies will have their mono combi loadouts still.
rest of codex seems pretty fun

Doubt it. Legends will continue to be poor quality non-rules, people will just dump the old models and move on. Or quit the game entirely.

Frankly it is better to have the uit completly squatted, sorry canned, compared to ending up in legends.
with the former atleast you can use count as freely, whilest legends is just... honestly legends needs to go it is that bad.
