Is this a tease? A lord of war? Do you have any other info?

It's a tease! There is no other information other than that picture and that Trish Carden is sculpting it.

If that's legit then it's probably our version of a Titan.

It's definitely legit. It looks like it's going to be bigger than a Tyrannofex. My guess it will be WraithKnight/Riptide size. Looks amazing!

I kind of hope this is the giant genestealer in the Space Hulk video.

That's nothing like a Stealer.  Stealers have feet, not hooves, and rounded heads instead of dinosaur heads.  Fluffwise, the Broodlord is as big a Stealer as you get.  No, this looks more like the mother of all Hormagaunts.  Powerful hind legs, thorax biomorphs.  Only thing that's confusing me though, those legs aren't traditional Tyranid evolution style.  The feederbeasts haven't had legs like that since 3rd edition and nearly everything on this is screaming out 'retro'.  The only sprues it resembles are the 3rd edition Warrior and Gaunt frames.  So I'm going to throw this out there.  What if it's a scaled-up model of a smaller bug?  Everything is saying 'mock-up' so maybe this is just for display and modelling purposes and the real beast is going to a normal scale Nid.

I don't think Forgeworld does Scale models. I think that will be the size of it, I also can't see the Forgeworld making small bugs. This guy will be a big bug, I have no doubt about that. The thing is what kind of bug. What does the Tyranid book lack right now? Fast moving Assault bug? Or a Giant bug to combat Wraith Knights, Riptides and Imperial Knights? There is no point making a model for which there is a different beast already doing the same job in the Codex. It needs to be different to get people to buy it.

At any rate, I'm excited :)

I'm curious if it may end up being the Dominatrix.  I can think of worse choices for a new model.

What the hell is a Dimachaeron? Reminds me of a giant Lictor.

If only GW would hire the folks at FW who clearly love Nids, let them make the next codex :\

TBH, I'm not really that impressed with it. I was excited when I first saw the glimpses but not now I see the whole model. It looks too Gangily for my liking, much like their Titan. i prefer my Tyranids bulky and full of muscles :)
