Default "Be The Predator" article needs to be rewritten badly!

I was just thinking, ya know that tactica in the tyranid section of the main site, the "Be The Predator" one? Well, it's SERIOUSLY outdated. It still uses the third edition codex, and really needs to be rewritten. If the author of that article is still here, could he PLEASE make it using the fourth edition codex? A lot of units have changed, mostly for the better, and I think some updated point of views would be great.

It says it's out-dated. We have tacticas for each individual unit, however, since the new codex is so much about customization it's hard to write an article like Hive Custodian did for third edition. Moreover, he hasn't visited TO in nearly a year, so he can't write it, and I don't know anyone that has the time to write a new one, even though it's nearly impossible to do because fourth is so different from third.

So, in short, it's impossible to do it, we don't have anyone to do it, and we already have enough tacticas to replace it.

I do have that labeled in the stickies as [OUTDATED]. After we've finished the current tacticas (Need In-Depth Information? (Units & Tactics)), I'll ask TO if he thinks they're website-worthy.

I know it's outdated. I asked TO if I could update some of those articles, and he said I could. Of course, this was before school started. In short, I'll get around to it eventually.

Guys, essentially, anyone is more than welcome to write whatever the hell you want. That's why we're a forum. It just depends on how well it is received.

I have lots of uni at the moment, but I'm on holidays after today. After I've caught up from the uni work I missed whilst I was in hospital/on drugs, I may finish the Gargoyles tactica - but i want to catch up on some Real Life and sleep first.

What's Real Life? Is that a new game or something?
( I think someone should actually make a game called that, and take real pictures and put them on the back of the box and people will go 'OMGZ THE GRAFICS IS AWWWSOME!' and when you get it home it just has a note that says "Go outside.")

As for writing stuff... I'm prolly not gunna crank another out until thanksgiving. No holidays til then and I'm taking a break from 40k to an extent. Burned myself out and what-not (played roughly 100 games in 2 months)
