    I am thinking of buying some lictors from a local hobby shop that is going out of buisness. The thing is they have a lot of old stuff as well as new. My question for all of you vetrans out there is did they change the lictor when they redid all the tyranid models? If so what is the difference so I know if I am buying an old version or new?

    Thanks

    The only "useful" bit of information I can tell you is the new ones are on a round base and the old ones have a square base. Though sometimes you can't see the base through the blister, so I don't know how much that will help you.

    the new ones are easier to stick together. the new upper talons have the usuall 'stick the bump in the hole' thing where the old ones had a ridge and groove thing that is anoying to stick back together when it comes apart.

    I would get the new one, but is a lictor worth the points? Or is it just good in a big battle, 1500+ pts.

    yes i find them invalueable in 800 or less pts battles, because your apponent (if he cant detect them) doesnt move forwards alot, and on a larger table size u dont ahve to lumber them along with slow units like tyrand guards, and if your opponent is moveing units like havocs(CSM Devastators) into possition u can spring out and stop them shooting.

    If a Lictor is being used in a game should there be one in an army? I guess it really depends on how big the game is but would two be an overkill?
