    Ok guys this info is from the guys who know so listen up. It has been confirmed that one eye and red terror are out the door, fex's will all have regen as standard, ravaners will have rending claws as standard and will be able to deep strike, stealer are to be made better with poss st increase or T. The last bit of gen i got is an over size stealer call a brood brother, not sure of its format but could be like the old fat stealer (can't remember it name) or a 3rd 4th gen stealer all that was said it will be a MC , this may well be the Nids new char. So thats what i got today what do you guys think as most of it was on here in rumor form apart from the deep strike and oversize stealer.

    If it lives it will be consumed

    sounds interesting,

    though I find it a pity they are removing OOE and RT, I really like those 2.
    If the codex comes uot and they are left out, we should have a proper burial for them.

    Anyway back on Topic.

    A new TMC sounds nice, though I have no idea of what it might be.

    Good dig BTW

    Oh crap, they're getting rid of the redterror, i just bought one today, and i've had O1E for a while, so i'm gonna have to burry them! :huh:
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.

    on page 32 of the current codex, it says that older models are appropriate to use. I'm not sure if this is a tourniment legal rule, but I'm sure they'll include this in the new codex as well.
    I am with stupid /\

    The old models will be fine to use after the new Codex. The O1E can be one of the new Fex's and the RT would just be one of your Raveners.
    Don't worry, it's only kinky the first time...

    You should still be able to use OOE as a fex with those claw things and ST, Ive seen many fexs with the OOE claws and devourers or ST in the new codex and stuff... So just use him as that a mutant fex with Regen and Big ol' claws bascially what he is now but now you have the option of giving hima vcannon well at least thats my thoughts on the situation. Regen as atandard on fexs though... does that mean it wont be a mutation to piut on the HT? or will it still be an option... if not we better get some dam inv. save with warp blast!

    Ravenors deepstriking sounds like Red Terrors tunneling ability has been absorbed into the hive, maybe this means the swallow hole rule has also been absorbed... ^_^

    And a fat stealer :lol: sounds interesting! A new TMC to replace the old ones I guess, so many questions about this new creature this raises though. I mean can this thing infiltrate as stealers can? a "brood brother" suggests it may lead a squad of stealers? Wonder what it will look like? fat stealer is a bit vague...

    All in all this is some real nice research you've pulled together nottoc! Very well done on extracting the information from GW HQ. So then, what interrogation tactics did you use to get this big scoop!

    Sounds great. I hope they keep the stealers at about the same point cost, that would make them a lot better than they are now.

    Would love to take all the cerdit for this but this info is second hand as its my friend who would knows the person who works at Nottingham but thats all i can say about him, as this info shouldn&#39;t be out :unsure: with ref to the stealer he said it would be oversize and a MC it was me that thought it may be like the old fat model that sat on the throne (genestealer cults) or a 3rd or 4th gen, i got the feeling there still working on it but i can tell you that all the rest of the models are done and dusted and have been for a month or two. I&#39;m now hopeful we will get the codex sooner than later but i can&#39;t confirm that just hope.
