    New Apocalypse Boxed sets

    First of all, why has no one mentioned these yet? second of all, the hive mind brood comes with 1 have tyrant 4 zoanthropes and 4 tyrant gaurds, correct me if im wrong, but what sense is there in putting 4 tyrant guards in a pack with a hive tyrant that can only take 3? and third, which, box/boxes are you planning on buying?

    Who says you cant take 4 guards? This is apocalypse, there are no FOC's and no minimum/maximum restrictions.

    Heh to tell the truth I really want the endless swarm and the 5 carnifex one as I can finally be able to build my all devour army 8X . Though I first have to see how expensive each one will be before i dig my self a hole debt I can't get out of...
    Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

    in the description it says 'This boxed set contains enough plastic components to assemble 120 Tyranid Gaunt or Hormagaunt models. All models are supplied unassembled and unpainted.'

    This means you could either make 120 Termagaunt, 120 Spinegaunts or 120 Hormagaunts?
    So it is not going to be regular gaunt box x 3,75, where you only have enough spinefist for half of them (actually 9)?
    Sounds nice but it took me long enough to have the 32 Spines painted I own now, and there is still work to do on them.
    120 is just insane.
    Though fielding 600 points worth of spinegaunts is a tempting thought.

    another ting that caught my attention is the description of the boxes.
    Are the a give-away of coming apocalypse rules?
    Like will there be rules for DS-ing those Carnfexes?
    And this 'Hive Mind-Box' pretty much sounds like there will be rules, that you can have a psychic choir with 1 HT and 4 Zoans, in which all of them benefit from the presence of 4 HT-guards.

    OTOH this might just be some fluff.

    Apocalypse is a place we nid players can really shine.

    You can field 6 full slots of gaunts at a 'meager' 2500.

    Imagine 3000 and higher, with no force org.

    I can see a lot of people fielding something like 40 squads of eight gaunts without number.

    And still having enough points left over for synapse, carnifexes, and the like.

    Troops have special bonus's too. A full brood of gaunts (32) will gain an overwhelming number bonus. That means if the enemy scores over a certain number of hits against your gaunts in a single round, they run out of bullets for that round! Nice.

    I've read somewhere that the endless swarm and the 5 carnifexes will cost 160€ and the hive box 120€... I don't know the costs in dollars, but around 200-220$ for the first two and 160-180$ for the last I suppose

    This looks great! I'm hoping that the thrope/tyrant loadout creates an extended radius of synapse or some other bonus(es). Or perhaps a souped-up version of the warp blast?? Take that, pesky titans!

    Will there be additional rules for deepstriking other units than carnifexes? Carnifexes would be great to strike in, but I miss the old days of seeding swarms... It'd be nice to see a revival of the rules.
