Welcome here requeim.

Click here to see what makes the Death Leaper a little different.

I'm not a huge fan of the rules and I believe that if you wanted to use one in game, you need your opponent's permission.

I do, however, like the converted 3rd edition model that they made for it.

It was in the old codex. The new codex did away with the special characters, although many of their abilities were integrated into the "normal" list. That's why it's only with opponents permission now.

Death Leaper did reappear during the Medusa IV campaign and had a usable entry for Nid players. You should still be able to download the campaign booklet...

http://uk.games-workshop.com/tyranid...-characters/1/ theres the rules for all 3 of the nid special bugs. old one eye, red terror, and death leaper. as far as im aware they are official and you do not need to ask for permision as they have minimum points level (in the case of old one eye maximium) needed before you can field them. i believe they are exactly as the old 3rd ed versions...

edit- correction you do permision to field them

Ok thanks. That's too bad since I would like to field the red terror. Now I must digress and read this new found material.

i was looking at the death leaper today and was thinking it would be nice to have even if just for a lictor in a different pose.
