Data File Editing New Tyranid Codex Rumors

Hey for those interested in play testing with the rumors of the new Tyranid Codex

I am in the process of 'editing' the Tyranid data file for Army Builder to fit with the new 'rumored' point costs and stats. This makes it easier for anyone that wants to build up an army list and do some play testing.

WARNING: This is only for people who are like me very eager to play test and try out our new toys. Even if all the stats and points/abilities may be completely different once the Codex is finally out.

Everything in the data file will be set up to fit in with the rumors as well as my own personal speculation for example the Hive Tyrants extra abilities i set to be worth somewhere around 10 pts each i have absolutely no clue but i figured a 10pt price tag on each isn't all that bad until we get the actual book.

And also i set the spike rifle and strangleweb to be interchangeable at no cost from the standard fleshborer on a gaunt. Since there's no current rumor as to what they will cost. Obviously they probably will be once the codex is out.

I already did some of the work on it, anyone else want to lend a hand?

Sorry... good luck with it though! I've got enough to do with actual books/bugs. Also, no new GW materials will be released in the files until 30+ days after the official release.

Yeah i figured, i've been trying to figure my way out through the authoring kit.

I have a million questions it's pretty complicated so this is just something to hold me up until the version you guys make comes out which should be like 5x better
