What's New Today | Games Workshop
First impressions: I need to go change my underwear..... I've been reminded today why I love love love the great devourer!
Harpy: At first I was disappointed that its look was just that of a flying carnifex. Then I realized that it was a flying carnifex. A FLYING CARNIFEX. I'm okay with this now. I think they did that so the biomorph heads could be used on it. At least I'm hoping so cause that's awesome!
Hive Crone looks promising though. The little bugs on it and the idea of a hive... I'm thinking its attack will make more nids.
New bioweapons: I saw that the hive guard got some sort of new gun. It looks, really interesting I guess? Looks like a gun with an implant attack or something.
Hive guard look very much like a shield which I think is okay. They look like their purpose which is what nids are suppose to do. Are those mini crushing claws?
Looks like the warriors now come with lashwhip and bone sword options which is good. Prime looks very prime like. I think I see a tail biomorph maybe?
Deathleaper is now an HQ choice? That's interesting!
Hive guard and Tyrant Guard are in the same box... which means there's a ton o bits in that box! Me wants!
Okay, so now can I just gush about this thing for a moment?Haruspex / Exocrine | Games Workshop
I don't really care if its some over priced, gimick that will still fall instantly to a GK Hammer. I want this abomination of nature to be the spear head of my army!
Its also an elite choice meaning that if you want a godzilla list, its not competing with carnifexes, Trygons, or Tryannofexes. For non zilla lists it will have to compete with all the other elites though which might be tricky.
I'm hoping with the inclusion of the Haruspex that a full assault nid list is viable again.
I'm excited. What are your thoughts?
Just saw this from the harpy description, "It is a creature perfectly adapted to aerial combat, able to wrestle enemy aircraft out of the skies. "
Nice airplane.... om nom nom nom!
