Tyranid scenery from the New Codex

So, I've been having a closer look at some of the pictures in the new Tyranid codex. In particular, I've been looking at some of the towers / spires -- the ones with the teeth sticking out of them. If you inspect them closely enough, it becomes apparent that they're all the same cast with all the intiricate details being exactly the same on each of them.

To be specific: I'm suggesting that they're all from the same mould / production process; just painted a little bit differently and photographed with different light conditions / directions. On the back page of the codex, I count at least 10 of theses toothed monstrosities reaching for the sky. Hence they've been mass produced prior to the release of the codex.

I'm wondering if these gems are going to be released by Games Workshop at some point in the future, in much the same way that we saw the fortress of redemption released? Has anyone seen them anywhere else? Just a random thought :)

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, I'm 90% sure these are the FW Capillary Towers you can see on this page:

I had the same thought about some new scenery when I saw the codex, but quickly remembered these.

Ah well, we can dream cant we! :P

well the mutter from the net is that when the battle missions book gets released then some scenery is rumored be be coming out that the same time, so it would make sense if the towers are plastic?

Rumor has it that Tyranid scenery is coming... and soon. I'm betting we're going to see the FW capillary towers in a plastic kit as well as those sweet Space Marine statues we see every where.

Thanks sovietspace -- I 100% completely forgot about the FW range!!!

oni & Anton: I hope the mutterings are right :)
