So far I’ve been showcasing monstrous creatures from my Tyranid Hive Fleet Kodiak. Let’s take this up a notch and include a gargantuan creature- the Barbed Hierodule. I purchased this model around the time Apocalypse was first released. Apocalypse made it easier to field the model. People were not so accepting of Forgeworld models being used in games back in those days so thank you Apocalypse for breaking the ice.
When I assembled this model I was impressed with how large it was. Nowadays, not so much. Games Workshops plastic kits have evolved and improved a considerable degree. Put the Tervigon/Tyrannofex beside this beast and there isn’t much of a size difference. There is no comparison for detail though. Forgeworld still wins hands down in that category.
I remember this kit being a pain in the butt to wash. It’s important to get all of the releasing agent off otherwise primer and paint will not stick. There are a lot of nooks and crannies on this model.
I don’t get too many games in with this model and I really should change that.
If you want to showcase any Tyranid models drop me an e-mail. My information is on the side bar. I’d like to showcase your work. Thanks for reading.
