The following changes just got pushed to the TP:

  • Drop extra Hormagaunts and Termagants from +20 to +15 in the Tyranid Swarm
  • Increase the core units of the Lictor swarm to 4 Lictors, extras drop from +50 to +35.
  • Brood Lord loses Rending Claws and Talons and drops from +50 to +25.
  • Allow Bio-Titans to be armed with any two weapons (Bile Launcher, Bio-Cannon, Cluster Spines, Pyro Acid Spray, Razorclaw). Max of 1 each though, except for Razorclaws.
  • Large Tyranid Swarm drops from 550 to 525
  • Large Biovore Swarm drops from 400 to 375
  • Large Dactylis Swarm drops from 850 to 825
  • Large Exocrine Swarm drops from 475 to 450

They're a combination of the 2016 proposals, the NDC suggestions and a few more that I threw in (the last four).

If anyone's willing, I'd like to test these:

  • Decrease Tyranid Swarm Trygon upgrades from +60 to +50
  • Increase Genestealer Swarm from 6 for 150, to 8 for 175.
  • Decrease Genestealer Swarm Genestealer upgrades from +25 to +20
  • Increase Trygon Swarm from 3 for 225, to 4 for 250.
  • Decrease Tyrgon Swarm Trygon upgrades from +65 to +60
  • Gargoyles gain IC on their FF
  • Malefactors change transport to "May transport two infantry units without Jump Packs or Mounted, or one light vehicle."

One of my formerly regular opponents is looking to get into the game again, and he plays Onachus. He might be interested in some playtesting.
