Buddy of mine shared this with our gaming group this morning - but didn't respond yet as to where/how he found it. I'm seriously hoping its real, and that Nids are getting another new dex (that looks to be done at least partially well, based off of this small but impactful paragraph)...but I could easily see this being fake.

Anybody out there have more info?

I believe it, because I'm sure they've figured out they need to do something pretty major to rebalance MCs against the now ubiquitous grav cannon. I also wouldn't be surprised if catalyst buffs FNP and warp field can be handed out as a buff to other nids by psykers.

That right there would fix warriors and shrikes, make zornthropes, tyranid primes and trygon primes a nightmare, and be maddening on horde armies (my homagaunts have fnp?). Completely insane.

Here's too new book rumors and fixing our everything.

I am a bit hesistant because of the way it is worded.
I would expect it to be worded like:

Any model with the Synapse Creature special rule has the Eternal Warrior and Feel No Pain special rules.
Any friendly model from the Tyranid Faction within 12" of a model with the Synapse Creature special rule (including the model itself) has Feel No Pain (6+) and Fearless special rules.
If a friendly unit from the Tyranid Faction is falling back and is within 12" of a model with the Synapse Creature special rule at the start of its movement phase, it automatically regroups

They have made it very convoluted with the way they wrote it up now (granted, it is the tyranid codex, so that might still be the case), but what pains me more...
They use the words 'tyranid codex' instead of 'tyranid faction'. That seems wrong.

Yeah, but it really isn't that major a change. It would be a smart change to breathe a bit of life into nid units across the board. At the moment it only feels like flyrants and mawlocs work, because setting foot on the table is suicide. It's a long time since a 200pt trygon could pop up next to something as mundane as a unit of dire avengers and survive a turn to get into combat.

Compare with the necron reanimation protocols buffs, and it really is a pretty tame. A necron decurion can get a 4+ reanimation protocols on most of the units.

Now every marine unit in an army can get objective secured, nids really have to go get them to clear them off objectives and score. That should mean lots of bodies on the ground that don't die super fast... we either need lots of free stuff, or something that makes everything we do take much tougher.

I've seen other codices word rules as "... units from codex: <faction here>..." so saying codex instead of faction shouldn't necessarily be a warning sign.
But yeah the wording doesn't seem like it's gone through the the standard editing and formatting. Though to be fair the digital copies have pretty horrid formatting as it is :roll:

It's been confirmed as fake, another nid player messing with our hopes and dreams. To be honest I'm relieved, I'm sick of all these re-rolls that are beign introduced. Of course I'd like it to be true but I'd actually prefer a reduction in these sorts of mechanics as it just slows the game down and nothing seems to die.

Well BOLS has more rumors about possible Q1 Nids making an appearance.

http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2015/10/ ... anids.html

I'm interested in this possible Biovore/Pyrovore/Psychvore kit. And the dominatrix rumor rears its head yet again.

It looks like the various hive fleets are going to start coming out of hibernation. We have a new biomass of rumours and leaks to look forward to. =)

Maybe Pyrovores will actually get that Torrent sans a pipe relay.

Let's get these forums churrning again. =)

Yeah, part of why I am rushing out some of the old backlog! I hope this comes to pass!
