Rules for the Dimachaeron were uncovered today at 40k Open Day, and pictures are leaking across the internet of what this new Tyranid Monster is bringing to the table. Definitely a nice model.

Here is a leaked image of the new Dimachaeron rules that I thought was originally on the Mexican Ork. I didnt see it just now, so here is a different link.
