Default Creature Creation

Hey everyone. I'm new to the boards, but I had a couple Tyranid questions.

Since the newer Imperial Armour books, has the Tyranid creature creation changed in any way? And if not, has anyone tried building a tyranid creature?

See the rest all run around.
Quickly kill the last in line,
Hear the rest all squeal like swine.
Cut and slash and hack and slice,
Welcome to my paradise.
Lictor, Lictor in a tree,
No one's left to search for me.

Search Around... there's a place that has a calculator for making new 'Nids.

there was a ... for lack of a better phrase... VDR for creating tyranid monstrous creatures in an old white dwarf. But I no longer have the issue, and I can't remember the number issue it was.

but if you search hard enough in one of the chapter approved compendiums they reprinted it. I think it was Chapter Approved: The Second Book of the Astronomicon.

Basically if you followed it right you could create any tyranid you could dream of... for a price in points.

That calculator is awefull... minimum S/T of 5, minimum 4+ save...

I think it's 3rd ed. or earlier... it lists nonexistant biomorphs.

I think I've seen that creator site before. Thanks for all the help.

I made this massive tryanid creature, was trying to make some stats for it, but I just found out that it's lascannon fodder. I'll try to get some pictures of it up in a little while. It was my first creation.

of course its third edition, its based on the third edition codex. Just like the regular VDR is no longer really usable as it was based on third edition (one of the few reasons that I don't allow others to use it when they play me, that and it can be horribly abused... twin linked gatling assault cannons anyone?)
