Tyranids : Hive Tyrant

      An alien monstrocity this one! This model is something completely different from what I usually paint.This model was a pleasure to model and tamper with and will make a fine addition to my Tyranids collection. I used the fleshborer hive from the Tervigon/Tyranofex kit to represent the twin-linked devourers.Well, who can say no to 12 twin linked Str6 shots? Add this to the mix and the prefered enemy special rule and you have yourself a really shooty monster. Although, it is really a shame that I have to model a close combat killer like this - I firmly believe that Tyranids and Orks have to engage in close combat, but these are the side effects of the 6th edition and I will have to live with that!
      Clearly I need more practice to feel satisfied with my Tyranid painting skills, but I believe that with every model I will become better!


  1. Impressive centrepiece for your army mate, really good job!

  2. Thank you Panagiotis!I hope the next creature to be better!!!
