So I was excited when all the buzz started with 6th edition. It really seemed like it would make Tyranids an upper tier army again. Sadly as more and more of the rule book is released I am starting to realized we have been horribly downgraded from what we were. To start off with the whole allies thing, Tyranids get none. Every other army can take a bunch of others to shore up weaknesses, but not us. From what Ive seen MCs get crapped on by losing 2D6 armor penetration and are only AP3 now in CC, unless you use their "smash" attack which doubles strength and makes them AP2 with half attacks. That means a tyrant only gets 2 attacks. While were talking about AP in CC now, it seems most basic cc weapons (read chainswords for marines and the like) are ap5. That means no saves for most of our guys. We do not have access to powerfists or other AP1/2 weapons as it looks like our boneswords are down to AP3 as well. To top it all off our FNP has been raised to a 5+, even though it does allow saves on everything except instant death now. Like I said everything is looking pretty grim for us. If the rumors are true I might be shelving my Nids for a while again save for random friendly games. What are everyone elses thoughts on how the supposed new rules affect us?
