View Full Version : Hive nodes
2nd Nov 04, 1:58 AM
hey all i've been playing battle of macrage and been using the tyranids. They own! thing I love about them is their ability to respawn from infestation markers and hive nodes. In other war 40k battles are you alloud to use hive nodes/infestation markers to respawn your guys?

Not yet, you may well get these rule in the next Codex:Tyranids though.

O cool hope so!, what does the hive node do anyway? is it just used as scenary in a normal war 40k game for the time being?

uh, yes, if you want it to be scenery....
Hive Nodes are really used more in the game to prevent your gaunt type creatures from running from battle, as it ups their leadership to 10 from 5. While a very worthy upgrade, it pales next to just having a synapse creature nearby, since synapse creatures prevent ALL leadership and morale checks. Of course, everyone knows that and tries to kill your synapse, but that's a differant matter....

thegreyman - Your wrong, check out the battle box. Hive nodes are pieces of scenery and have special rules in some of the scenarios.
Your thinking of the synapse node mutant you can take in custom Tyranid armies.

Correct, I am wrong in regards to Macragge, but my answer was the topic of Private Lynch's second question, if Hive nodes did anything in 40k games outside of Battle of Macragge. Outside of Macragge its just small scenery.

aww I want special rules for em :S, does anything alse in the tyranid army reproduce warriors?

Not yet, but i'm hoping we're gonna get super cool stuff for the nids in the new codex... honestly, when the marines score a 4 shot 6 4 24" Rending weapon, something is definatly gonna change for the better for the bugs.

Well if it does im diffinately going to pick up a nid battle force or a group of nid soldiers! :).. btw when is this new codex going to come out?
5th Nov 04, 2:31 AM
Last time I heard it was around January or February, but in GW-speak that means June or July
5th Nov 04, 7:57 PM
ok will have to wait till then, on the brighter side now i can consintrate on my catachan army! :)
Jan. Feb of 2006!!! no way is it comming out this upcoming Jan.!
Why? because the marines are wrapping up just about that time... :Slap:
6th Nov 04, 3:06 AM
wtf? were does it say 2006 in his post?
16th Nov 04, 5:25 PM
WHAT! I was under the impression that the Nids would be coming out around begining-mid summer :werd: . I'm confused... :screwy:

not soon enough is all that maters!
I haven't heard anything about how it is going to be. and if they spend as long with Space marines as they did with Chaos it will be a while.
17th Nov 04, 3:02 AM
I heard an Ork codex was coming out but dont know when. I like stuff that is sharp and pointy...especially tyranid talons. All i can say is that us oz boys get things later dammit. Anywhoo, hopefully there will be some new units for tyranids.

The buzz is Nids get first crack because they are in the boxed set for MacCragge. And odds are it won't be too long, (spring/summer maybe?), unless they have been writing them concurrently in which case Feb might not be so unrealistic.
After that, Eldar and Orks will get new codicies, but who knows when that'll be.

would fit with thier fluff (purestrain 'stealers are good warriors) but thats far to cheap points wise. Im sure two of those could bring down a terminator and they cost the same.
14th Dec 04, 5:05 AM
Yas, but they have no shooting ability.
14th Dec 04, 11:37 AM
Well I have heard Feburary for the Codex Tyranids because they are trying to release it around the time of the new Tyranid Carnifex model which is supposed to come out in febuary and this is coming from GW Managment.
