word is out that an Expansion for DoW is in the works featuring Tyranids (yay!).
tentively entitled: Defence of Ultramar, it will feature primarily 'nids vs Ultramarines.
Ultramar is the realm controlled by the Ultramarines Chapter of Space Marines (homeworld, Macragge).
i'm a total WH40k background nut, so this is very exciting for me. :)
OOH the secret Background of AzH! BTW, chaos are the best :P Sounds interesting, cant wait, thanks for finding it!
the Defence of Ultramar was the end of the first Tyranid War. Hivefleet Kraken (i believe).
The Tyranids attacked en masse and were destroyed by The Ultramarines, but the Ultramarines suffered incredible losses, being almost wiped out. a Space Marine Chapter features 'only' 1000 fighting men. the loss of the Ultramarines to the Tyranids would have been a devastating blow to the Imperium because they are now experts at fighting the Hive Mind.
it is one of the lynchpins of the WH40k background universe.
Sounds class. I used to paint my marines as the "Black Templars", I had a unit called The Emperors Champion or something, very cool dude with a big sword.
did you paint that? it's very good. mine had a really cool 'plastic' color scheme. ;)
Naw, just gave a google for this one. I dont think I have any of my stuff anymore, it got thrown out when I moved house, I had kind of grown out of it.
I just checked the Warhammer 40.000 webpage and the Tyranids aren't purple... Damn :/ ... This will be a great addition for the game. I do hope that they will add some other races too ;) ...
If i had a digi camera, i'd show you guys my Imperial Gaurd, my sentinels I think look especially good. I have sold most of them now, heh, they were getting too expensive to buy.
Good news by the way AzH bad news that they won't be including IG though! (As far as we know)
Hive Fleet Behemoth AzH although Kraken was the second Hive Fleet. God that sounded petty
the Tau are in the same sector of the galaxy as The Hive Fleets and the ultra marines so we could hope for them as well.
@ Apro Nids can be almost any color its all about which hive fleet it is (there are millions of splinter fleets) My nids were Red skinned with Black carapace
_Ragnarok_ @ Apro Nids can be almost any color its all about which hive fleet it is (there are millions of splinter fleets) My nids were Red skinned with Black carapace
Oh yeah! Good point! And as we have our army color painter tools I can make 'em purple skinned and blue carpaced :) .
