We were talking about the new Tyranid box set, and I promised a few more details from sources. So lets take a look at the two new monstrous creatures for Tyranids, the Toxicrene and Maleceptor.

Please remember that these are early rumors, even though I am sure that leaks will arrive sometime this week to show that these are indeed coming. I look forward to seeing the models.

Of all the recent releases, I find the design of the rules for choking cloud to be fantastic. A cloud of poison that effects open topped vehicles and those that have lost a hull point with armour bane is truly a nice rule. Not to mention that it gains instant death on a roll of a 6. Very deadly, and very sweet rules. Almost makes me want to start a second Tyranid army. It makes me want to hit a vehicle with psychic overload, and then blast it with a choking cloud.

I have added information to the previous bits, just to keep it cohesive. New info is in italics.
