Tyranids up for preorder

New models are up for order. Most of the new stuff looks pretty sweet. The harpy looks terrible though. I don't know who at GW keeps telling them to make flying goldfish, but every new flyer they try to make seems to be very short and and not aerodynamic at all. The front could be ok, but it seems way too bulky and short to fly.

The Harpy's wings seem too small. I think that's what makes it look kinda bad; it couldn't possibly lift itself up on so small a wingspan.

Yeah yeah, logic and 40k don't mix, whatever. Aesthetically speaking it's off.

I love the big ground beasts, they look like good editions.

Maybe aerodynamics have changed a lot in the future, and fat with small wings is the best.
