    People have been talking about these coming into the new codex, I'm almost sure they will now because I saw some at my local GW!

    If they were scratch built, it was an extremely good job, these things were perfect. They looked a fair bit like the Maccrage stealers, except a bit taller than warriors and bulkier. The front arms had three claws in a ring on the hand, the back ones were standard rending claws. They were painted up in the window and looked like they were made of plastic. Very cool models.

    Yeah, just thought I'd share that with you. If thats what they are going to be like in the new codex I'll be getting some.

    Inquisitor-Scale Purestrain Genestealer.

    If it wasn&#39;t the previous... Then I&#39;m dumbfounded, because by all logic no new Tyranid models should be out yet. They haven&#39;t even announced the new Codex yet, nevermind the models...

    I can say for certain that the 4thEd Tyranid Codex won&#39;t be out before Feb... I work in a comics store and the monthly catalogue which lists new stuff coming in a couple of months (including RPGs, miniatures and GW) hasn&#39;t mentioned anything about the Tyranids yet.

    Hi, that stealer was not it. The front claws looked similar, but the back ones were different and the body was like the Maccrage ones, not the old one like in that picture.

    I was a bit stunned by it too, I don&#39;t know how or why there would be some when the nids aren&#39;t out for ages... I&#39;m going to get a better look tonight and I&#39;ll reply again, unfortunately I don&#39;t have a digi cam lol. I will ask the GW guys what it is.


    Edit:
    Ok, sorry guys. False alarm. One of them was a converted inquisitor stealer, and the others were conversions with the inq. stealer head and warrior bodies. They still looked good, one used biovore arms which looked cool...

    Anyway, they were set up with 40k stuff and the store doesn&#39;t have any inquisitor, its mail order only, so I guess that means the stuff expect giant stealers and someone is preparing early. Or he could just be using them as warriors...
