What I mean is are they like the new 'Nid creatures that came out a little while back as separate datasheets in white dwarf, just in the codex, or did pre-existing units actually get altered (pts cost etc.)? I'm asking because I need to know whether or not I need to get the new codex right away or if I'm OK as long as I'm not using any new things?

A few minor things have changed. I don't want to go into detail for obvious reasons, but certain units can now have more models. A certain elite slot which was only allowed 3 models can now have 9, lots of models which could only have 1 in a squad now can go 3. theres the fire team rule which allows +1BS if u go 3 models for a few models. It's def worth getting basically.

Cool. So it's not just the previous 'dex with datsheeta pasted in. Will have to pick it up at some point. Are Vespids actually good now?

Yes, don't expect huge changes though. I'll look into Vespids tonight but I have a feeling they haven't changed much lol I'll let you know for sure soon.

Edit: Vespids haven't changed at all.

By the way here's a link to some new formations. Your Vespids received one and it gives them infiltration and stealth (forests). So now they have stealth (forest and ruins) which is basically all the terrain I play with anyways lol. Interesting formation, wouldn't say they're good compared to the other options we have but you can run them in non competitive environments.

Cool man. Always thought they were a neat model, couldn't justify buying them though...
