Hey guys. Seeing as I have discovered dipping and will be able to paint armeis of nids quickly one question remains.
Should I start now or wait until the new codex?
If there are going to be big changes then I dont fancy buying models which will fall out of my favour when I see new ones. Also as I only buy an army to a set, flexible list I dont relish the prospect of having a big re-shuffle.
Basically.... should I start now or should I wait to see if there are any big changes?
Well, if You want to wait for around at least half a year... Go right ahead!
If You want to start now, then the models which are in all probability not changing are the current plastic boxes of Gaunts and Warriors. Also, all accessories which are made on plastic sprues will probably remain legal choices.
This simply due to the fact that plastic molds are rather expensive, and I can't rightly believe that GW would simply abandon them. =)
Of course, even if the options remain legal, it's currently impossible to say whether or not they remain points-effective... So either You wait or assemble now, knowing that they might change in the future.

buy what uzi said, but don't properly assemble them, so pin with no glue so it holds together, but you can change weapons if the ones you use get knocked out of the list or become obselite. that's all i can say, but it should help.

Another option is to buy an army from eBay. Use it to see how you like the Nids, and if you want to invest in the new models when they come out, put the back up for auction. There are still buyers for all the 2nd Ed models on eBay, so I'm sure you'd be able to sell these models when the new ones come out.
