  • Congratz to Mike and Doug who won the Twin Linked GT! Way to go guys, and props to OmegaPrime for running a great event!
  • Shout out to Mierce Miniatures, who produce some of the cool miniatures I have ever seen, the Banelord and Banelegions lines. If you like Fantasy minis, check them out. Warning though, some of the minis are a bit risque and definitely intended for adults.

Rules Lawyer

  • So here is a rules lawyer question about ‘Nids. How do psychic powers work for them?  The FAQ states that all but the Swarm Lord are mastery 1. With Swarmy being level 2. But you can purchase extra powers from the Codex or roll from the rule book tables. If I purchase a second power for say a Zoanthrope, can I then roll twice on the table? Or take a codex power and one roll, etc etc?  Does this then make him mastery level 2 or is he still level one but I can choose 1 of 2 powers to activate each turn?  Any help would be much appreciated and I am sure other new Tyranid players are curious too.
