    I've heard rumors floating around the forums (not this one , strangely enough) about 4th edition , and supposedubly (sry for the spelling) assault armies will get weaker and less useful , and tank armies will get seriously broken.

    Hmm... assault getting weak. thats already bad for us

    Tanks getting broke.. thats even worse , 'cause not only are they already good against us , but we don't have any for our own use.

    just looking for everyone's oppinions

    What kind of rumors? They cant just decide to make assault garbage and not give us anything in return. That would destroy our army completely. That wouldnt make it out of playtesting.

    Good job im moving out of tyranids when iv got another 100 pts of models.
    i'll hold off forming anew army if 4th edition is coming before january.

    Can you get warriors to join tyrant guards and then the HT too forceing anyone shooting to attack the guards instead., or could they pick the wariors out,

    Can u mass thw whole army into one unit? , i dont think you can.

    Well, I have a friend who plays Eldar and constantly complains about how horrible they are compared to Dark Eldar, Tau, Necrons etc... and he consistently beats everyone in our little group (who play Tau, Necron, etc...).

    My point is, people will complain about the rules that go against them and not point out the rules that may go for them. In the TAR, TMC's are vulnerable to the powerfisted Vet Sargent, but no one points out that your gaunts will no longer be shot up because you won an assult.

    Its far too early to see if 4th edition will kill mass assulty armies, and I hope that GW knows enough not to break one of their existing races, no matter how popular or unpopular they are.

    And even if the rules go against Tyranids, you can be sure they'll release a new Tyranid codex that will fix all those problems. :w

    Lets hope theres new models to go with it :a (dont they ahve 40K emoticons).

    if someone constantly wins and keeps it up , have u asked to use ur friends army?
    , they are obviously not aprieciating the game for what it is: "A GAME".
    When i start to win alot i hold back to find out why im winning and then present adive on how they can counter me at full str.

    wither that or he can afford the expensive models like wraithlords etc...

    What do you mean? Why would TMC's fear the powerfist of the Vet? T6 should prevent them from insta gibbing yes?

    TMC's, under the new assult rules, cannot assign attacks to individuals like they could under the old assult rules. Therefore your expensive Tyrant (or 'Fex or Red Terror or whatever) winds up facing a 30 some odd point marine that has as many wounds as he does friends, since they will all die first. So the powerfist, which ignores armor and has a good chance to wound, will stick around till the end of the fight and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Under the old rules, you could target the powerfist and get it out of the way first. Under the new rules, you can only target IC's and MC's, not regular characters.

    Make sense?

    Yeah it does - but you can still avoid that. Its not the end of the world just means we have to be a bit more careful when we charge up.

    hmmm well i have a gut feeling the tyranids are gunna get a revamp next year, when it comes to the codexes....there are 2 armies in current need of a revamp
    Nids (tooo many unclear rules) and oddly enuff Spacemarines, with the advent of the new chaos codex the vanilla loyalists have been left a bit behind.

    as a hunch i think shoot the big ones will change, theres been so much kick offs from players on how unrealistic the rule is...GW cant keep there heads in the sand anylonger and like the Terminator rules for the space marines, i reckon GW will come up with some sort of rule that will make nids fair to play as and fair to play against.

    on a positive note, theres a good possibility Seeding Swarms will be made Legal
    no more asking for your opponents permission to seed in

    as for the new assualt rules... i hope they dont make it into the new edition of the rules,they kinda negate the use of shock attacks from elite troops, keep the old combat rules PLZZZZZ

    theres all sorts of rumours flying around the net about nids at the moment
    some good and mostly bad so i gues its just a case of wait and see

    1 rumour is new stealer models

    SO what Do you guys think?
    what changes do we want for the new edition?
    what do u think will happen with the nids?
    Will we be all selling our swarms and starting a wood elf (tree puff) fantasy Army
    I Dunno, you tell me
    Army of the heavens, my army waits in hell
    To battle on the earth, for all the souls who fell

    TMC's are always considered characters for purposes of allocating attacks. Says so in the codex.

    Yeah, you've got new genestealers in a few (months?). Rumor also has it that the new genestealers will also be in the 4th boxed set.
