I was over in the rumours and previews thread, and reading through the 40k GT rules, i found the following:
under the army list section the following can be foundHuh? What's the deal with Rippers that they aren't allowed to be mutated? And what's the definition of mutated anyway? are they still allowed to take the biomorphs described in the codex?Personalised hive fleets will be allowed. For the purposes of this
Tournament, Ripper Swarms will be a geno-fixed species that may not
be mutated in any way. Any mutable genus creature used must be
WYSIWYG and its characteristics should be explained clearly to all
Am i missing something or did ripper swarms become broken powercreatures while i wasn't looking?
From reading it, it looks like they are talking about the 3rd edition codex where you could make your own hivefleets by making new creatures from mutable genus creatures, such as gaunts, and then you could have mutations in squads, such as one rending claw per so many wounds.
Maybe they copied this from a year or two ago and forgot to change this? I don't know. Many of the things that they are referencing such as mutable genus, geno-fixed, mutations, aren't mentioned in the new codex and aren't relevent any more. I really don't know what else to say, it looks like a big typo.

I suggest you email them and tell them they have it wrong. It wouldn't be possible to ban biomorphing these days anyway as it would make many Tyranids useless.
i figured as much, since none of the terminology made sense with the 4th edition codex. seems like a pretty massive typo. If i was in the UK, i'd worry about it more, as is, i'm pretty sure they'll catch it, or people will ignore etc. In fact, i don't think i'd know who to contact even if i tried
