A seemingly numberless horde of ghastly super-predators, adapted bio-weapons optimised for the kill - the Tyranids emerge from the cold darkness of the intergalactic void. They hunt, kill and feed endlessly, stripping the galaxy of all organic matter they encounter, ravenously devouring every morsel of life and leaving nothing but dead, scarred rocks in their wake.
This is a great-value box set that gives you an immediate collection of fantastic Tyranid miniatures, which you can assemble and use right away in games of Warhammer 40,000! Youäó»ll receive a 8 Genestealers, armed with rending claws, a Broodlord, armed with monstrous rending claws and a Trygon, armed with scything talons, toxinspike and prehensile pincer tail äóñ this can optionally be assembled as a Mawloc, featuring distensible jaws in lieu of a toxinspike.
The Biovore is a squat, bloated creature - yet no less deadly for all that. Deep within its lumpen form, the Biovore nurtures a clutch of Spore Mines - living bombs that blanket the enemy in acids, poisons and shrapnel-sized pieces of chitin. A Biovore launches these Spore Mines through the air towards its enemy, where they detonate not on impact, but when it senses the proximity of a non-Tyranid life form.
When it comes to artillery the Tyranids are sadly lacking. This is where the Biovore comes in, as it can launch Spore Mines high into the air, dropping them amongst your opponents where they will either detonate with a spectacular blast, or lurk innocently until something gets too close (or pokes it with a sharp stick). This ability makes them very useful for securing objectives, which they can pepper with spore mines, making your opponent's job of capturing it just that little bit harder.
This pack contains one Tyranid Biovore - a finely detailed resin cast kit that comes in eight components (including three spore mines), and is supplied with one 60mm round base and three 25mm round bases. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly - we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.
When Tyranids invade, the Broodlord leads his followers into battle, often appearing from sewers or hidden vents to cause untold carnage amongst the enemy army. Incredibly dangerous as with all Tyranids, the Broodlord towers over many, presenting a bulky silhouette of muscle and claws. There is little that can stand in the way of this monster and his attending brood.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble one Tyranid Broodlord, and is supplied with one Citadel 75x42mm Oval base.ŒæView full product details
Carnifexes are living engines of destruction, towering monsters of unyielding armoured chitin and knotted alien muscle. A particularly notorious example is the much-feared äóÖThornback.äó» Created by the Hive Mind to excel as much at range as in the crush of melee, the Thornback can launch a volley of spines from its dorsal thorax with lethal force, and can wield an array of ranged bio-weapons.
This fantastic value set contains 2 Carnifexes, to be assembled as the Thornback Brood. Each Carnifex comes with two pairs of scything talons, a pair of crushing claws, deathspitter, devourer, stranglethorn cannon and heavy venom cannon. There are 5 alternate heads, and the tail has the choice of thresher scythe or bone mace.
This plastic kit contains 110 components with which to make 2 Carnifexes, assemblable as a Thornback Brood, Carnifex Brood, Screamer-Killer Brood or Old One Eyeäó»s Brood.
The Deathleaper was created as Hive Fleet Leviathan's ultimate assassin, but it is much more than that. The Deathleaper is a terror weapon, one created to utterly undermine the enemy's morale and break their will to oppose the swarm. With strong instincts and a relentless skill it is a monstrous predator that toys with its prey.
Ever wondered why Jones is acting strange, or Corporal Brown keeps looking over his shoulder? It's probably because, out of the corner of their eye, they've seen the Deathleaper skulking in the shadows. Even when your opponent thinks they've got it cornered, it can suddenly disappear, only to reappear somewhere else entirely - normally right behind something very important that they don't want to lose. It's fast, deadly and covered in blades, what's not to like?
This pack contains one Deathleaper - a finely detailed resin cast kit that comes in nine components, and is supplied with a 40mm round base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Super Glue and Citadel Paints.
Gargoyles are often the first wave of a Tyranid swarm to be seen in battle. Thus a Tyranid attack is preceded by the beating of thousands of membranous wings as Gargoyle Broods descend upon the foe; blocking out the sun, and spitting death from their fleshborers and caustic venom from their fanged mouths.
This box set contains 10 multi-part plastic Tyranid Gargoyles. Models supplied with small flying bases.
Genestealers are legendarily ferocious close combat opponents, with lightning fast reflexes and deadly claws, capable of ripping through adamantium. They have their own brood telepathy enabling them to function outside the range of the hive mind.
This box set contains eight multi-part plastic Genestealers, and includes a host of additional components allowing you to represent a number of weapon-symbiotes or biomorph enhancements. Models supplied with 25mm round bases.
