“Tyranid Warriors are fast and powerful, with the capability to be strong at ranged combat or in close quarters in a similar fashion to the Hive Tyrant. Tyranid Warriors are the most adaptable of all the Hive Mind’s bioforms. They are creatures from the blackest of nightmares, unstoppable killing machines with pulsing ichor for blood, needle-sharp teeth and darkly gleaming eyes that reveal a terrible intelligence at work. A Tyranid Warrior stands twice the height of a man, its carapace protected by a thick chitin.”
One of the most exciting expansions of Hive Fleet Dragur and probably the reason I got into Tyranids in the first place – Tyranid Warriors!
Back when I started building these late 2018, definitely it was the ‘rule of cool’ that applied and they weren’t an optimal choice – I didn’t care as I loved how these models looked, how they were put together and have been a pleasure to paint.
It just so happens they are pretty awesome for their points in their 9th edition codex 😀
These take a long time with all their bits to paint, however, I’m very happy with the result and look pretty striking on the table.
These Tyranid Warriors are on their supplied 40mm bases which doesn’t give that much space for extra decoration, however, I managed to squeeze a couple of guard bits and bobs (and the odd hand or two that leaves it to your imagination if it is still attached to a buried body or if it has been severed off!) and a Blood Angel helmet again for the HQ choice – the Tyranid Prime.
I took additional time to do these as I cut off the arms (after plastic gluing them into the sockets…not fun to remove) and decided to magnetise them. Like Carnifexes, I think this was a good move as they are very customisable and have a ton of weapon options (you never know what might be good in future releases).
