So last week seemed like am out of place Tyranid release, but as we get into this week it looks like we have a second major Tyranid release this year. One would question why, but here we are! This week sees the release of the Tyrannocyte/ Sporocyst & Mucoloid Spore kit, part two of this second wave of Tyranids. I have to say "yawn"...
BUT there's actually a few other releases this week that may pip your interest.
Dark Vengeance was a really popular expansion with some great miniatures - well this week we get a preview of two sets incorporating those miniatures.
Also this week, the build up to the rumoured Blood Angels release continues with two Flesh Tearers books, PLUS an interesting pic hidden amongst this issue.

The Tyrannocyte is, effectively, a drop pod. The Tyranids use it as a transport for planetary conquest - but the nastiness doesn't stop there. Once empty of it's cargo, this becomes a tank!
The Sporocyst is an agent of chemical and biological warfare. Deploying with the main force it burrows into the surface and release spores and noxious gases to decimate enemy forces.
Some good shots here - maybe they're getting the Forge World section right? Could still do with some more room and maybe some action shots.
Maybe it's nothing, but fun to see some of these things and wonder if they are clues
Sure, news of the Flesh Tearers books is nice and the Dark Vengeance sets exist, but without articles on how to paint Dark Angels or a wider look at Eldar Wraithlords this issue is pretty disappointing.
I'm sure Tyranids excite someone, so they will be rolling on the floor like an overly tired panda, but for the rest of us... 'meh'!
