I'm posting out of curiousness. I wonder how many of y ou out there actual perfer the 3rd ed fex opposed to the new one. I personally like the 3rd ed fex, it looks more realistic. The new one is far too exadurated in my opinion, it looks more like a demon than a bug-like alien.
i am very much enthralled by the new carnifex, and the new tyrant guard and hive tyrant too for that matter, they seem to fit more with the other models
but not, the old carnifex did give me a "its a large beetle" feel, which would be good, other then the fact that tyranids as a whole dont give me a insect feel, more of a "horde of lizard/insect/other things"
call me crazy but I like good old 2nd ed. Fexes, tyrants, lictors, stealers, rippers, gargs, termies, thropes, and even warriors. Maybe it cause thats what I own, but it's hard to beat the old tyrants, lictors, and fexes.
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
the old 2nd edition tyrant was awsome, there is no doubt to that, but i severly dislike almost all of the other very very old models
The old tyrant was as big as a warrior....
The new carnifex is much cooler IMO.
I like the new fex, though the old fex is also good. I've just always hated how the tyrant and fex in 3rd ed had their mouths closed. It looks so anti-climatic, having this giant monstrousity that isn't even roaring because it can't open its mouth to look imposing.

I'm a new tyranid player and saw a few of the old fex's there about double the size of a warrior or genestealer, I mean I've seen heavily and normally modified fex's and jesus christ these things look rediculous, I show'd them to my 2.5y/o lil brother and he scream'd it was hilarious but I mean I think that proves its point...its awsome looking and can scare the **** out of babies
Too right. I think the bonesword is a stupid idea too. It makes it look too human. At least GW could change the name.Originally Posted by CaMeLJoKeY

Yeah, in my book, sword are a cc weapon.
i prefer the new fex but with lots o converstion. i dont like the fact that he looks like he is trying to hide behind a gaunt and not being very sucessful.
I love fielding 10,000 points per-player. DECOS all the way baby.

Is it too much when you can field 20k in fantasy?
