- A terrifyingly powerful HQ choice for Tyranid armies
- A monstrous psyker, able to wield a number of deadly bio-weapons
- Can alternatively be built as a Winged Hive Tyrant or the Swarmlord
Hive Tyrants enact the Hive Mind’s will on the battlefield, as the massive commanders of the Tyranid swarm. Powerful warrior organisms in their own right, each Hive Tyrant is also possessed of a depth of sentient autonomy and strategic cunning that makes them truly deadly foes. Every part of their body is perfectly sculpted to maim, kill, and consume – and guide lesser bioforms in doing the same.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Hive Tyrant, an impressive and incredibly versatile leader-beast that can be built to take on a variety of battlefield roles. This looming creature is a fitting centrepiece for any Tyranid army – it boasts a distinctive chitinous shell studded with chimneys, a snarling head with a cruel horn, and a hideous skeletal underbody. The kit features a huge variety of weapons options, including two scything talons, a heavy venom cannon, a stranglethorn cannon, and a bonesword and a lash whip – as well as biomorphs like adrenal glands and toxin sacs, plus other components for customising your Hive Tyrant. You can also choose to build this kit as flying Winged Hive Tyrant, or the insidious Swarmlord.
This set comprises 59 plastic components and is supplied with a Citadel 60mm Round Base. This miniature is supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
