I'm quite pleased about this announcement, however I know quite a few people who'd like this even more than I do.

A link to the announcement on the community site, with screenshot,

There's a video too!

I pretty much assumed Relic would include the Nids in Dawn of war 2...

But I was still over-joyed when I saw their preview on Gamespot... ;D

But... The video previewing them have didn't show any genestealers! Please don't leave them out Relic- their just as important as the gaunts, carnifexes, warriors, and tyrants are! :'(

Well from the videos and screen shots we know there will be Lictors, Carnifex, warrior, gaunts....I doubt they will leave out genestealers.

I'm interested to see how they play compared to the other races.

Indeed. However some members may not be able to see it. As DOW is likely of interest to a good percentage of the 40k playing population, I think having another thread here may be an alright enough idea, at least for the time being. In the future it may be closed down, but for now I'm content to leave it open so that those without enclave access can see the news.

Whilst I'm impressed with the detail THQ put into the Tyranids, I can't help but mention... THQ, why have you forgotten the Forces of Chaos? Why... WHY!? :'(

"I shall personally launch a Black Crusade against the infidels who dare deny Chaos it's victory!" But first, I need to hang my head in shame against THQ's forgetfulness..."
