I ranted about 6 months ago about how badly the Tyranids needed new models. The model lineup is great, but has huge holes in extremely important places. Today we've seen leaked photos of upcoming models that makes this hive overlord extremely happy.
Hive Tyrant / Swarmlord
Since the Finecast™ pricing debacle I've been very wary of new models from GW. GW's prices are rapidly approaching the break point for most hobbyists. The list of prices for Tyranid stuff:
Tyranid Hive Tyrant / The Swarmlord 3-Mar-12 $53.75 New Plastic
Tyranid Tyrannofex / Tervigon 3-Mar-12 $57.75 New Plastic
Tyranid Boneswords Pack 3 x 'Pair of Boneswords' 3-Mar-12 $19.75 New Resin
Tyranid Lash Whip & Bonesword Pack 3 x 'Lash Whip & Bonesword' 3-Mar-12 $19.75 New Resin
Deathleaper 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $24.75 Repackaged Resin
Old One Eye 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 Repackaged Resin
Tyranid Biovore 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 Repackaged Resin
Tyranid Spore Mine Cluster 9 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $24.75 Repackaged Resin
The Red Terror 1 Fig Box 3-Mar-12 $41.25 Repackaged Resin
Tyranid Ripper Swarm Brood 1 Base Clampack 3-Mar-12 $13.25 Repackaged Resin
The tervigon is a little less than a land raider, which is the worst. Tyranid players usually want to field two to three tervigons - most marine players are lucky to field one land raider. The Hive Tyrant is still overly pricey, but hardly anyone uses one anymore.
The boneswords and lash whip packs are extremely pricey as well. They should be plastic and come in three pair for $10 or so. Equipping a six man tyranid warrior squad with bone sword and lash whips would cost $124 for a 270 point troop unit. Absolutely terrible.
I'll definitely be picking up two tervigons and a tyrannofex when the models launch, and I'll definitely be picking up some bone sword packs for my shrikes... but man. GW can really grind your gears.
