Its not great news... Mawlocs can be used on invisible things which is nice but the cult is listed as AOC instead of BB which makes them much weaker IMO.

Another nail in the coffin from GW for the nids and their ally. :(

There's more. Units re-entering the field after they get recycled through formation rules (endless swarm, sporefield, that formation with gargoyles). Gargoyle venom + toxin sacs... we're still not doing too great

I just hope the next codex makes good on the promise of "every unit viable"

I re-costed the entire nid codex in 30 minutes lol (I have played 100's of games so I hope/feel/think I was fair and did not make them OP). I sent it to a few people to review and then I want to send it to GW lol. Then if they just fix/update some of the special abilities they could have it out soon!

I would love to post it here but I can't because it includes points costs, before and after...

Regarding the Trygon Tunnel: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, that is so stupid. Let us be able to put units in reserve specifically for the tunnel. It's just a waste of ink and paper to have that rule around. Has anyone ever really used it in a game?

I've tried it with the endless swarm but it added very little, used it like once or twice...
