Anyone heard much in terms of rumors of a new 5th Ed Tyranid Codex?

Default Anyone heard much in terms of rumors of a new 5th Ed Tyranid Codex?

Guys at my local shop have been throwing around December as the target month, and I heard the possibility of a new plastic Trygon kit probably converted to an MC rather than Gargantuan.

Not heard too much else though, anyone have better than my sketchy details?

The only rumors I've heard/seen were a fake codex summary PDF. I wasn't aware of any date.

The Trygon thing has been floating around ever since I got into this hobby about three years ago. However, the Apocalypse rulebook adds some weight to the rumors. You'll note that, inside the Maccrage battle report, the Trygon has a different tail, head, and somewhat different chest than a normal one; insanely difficult conversions for very little payoff. This could mean very little, but, at the same time, one of those scratch-built Stompa's in the very same book eventually became the base of the plastic Stompa (note the similarities in the 'skirt&#39, so the Trygon could be an early prototype. But that may just be my fantasizing.

December-ish doesn't sound out of the question, given that Planetstrike is July and Space Wolves afterwards. Still, Necrons or, maaaaaaaaaaaybe, Dark Eldar could squeeze themselves in there so there's not much I can say. I'll be happy when I hear it, though.

Rumours on Bell of Lost Souls:

Space Wolves will come late this year.
Dark Eldar are probably the ones after that.
Necrons and Inquisition are vying for next year, but probably Necrons first.

Tyranids won;t be getting a codex for a fair while yet. Definitely not this year, probably not next year.

GW might throw in some fake rumours to get us exited, like they did in 5 ed. In The old GW website they said that everybody in a squad gets an attack in cc, regardless of distance from base to base contact, but I live in England and some over seas country might of had different rumours...

I need a new codex for my nids, necrons and chaos marines. lol

I'm also hoping for a new one for Tau just so i can stop mass killing them. And plus their codex is a bit complicated, i've been enjoying the simplicity of the new codexes.
