It is a shame that Forgeworld has discontinued its Tyranid terrain. I was fortunate to bag me three Brood Nests before they went out of stock. They came with the some neat rules from volume 1 of the Anphelion Project. The Brood Nests could be placed down anywhere on the table during deployment. Any designated troops in reserve could then emerge from the nest. The Brood Nest had wounds and toughness values so it could be destroyed before anything had a chance to emerge. That meant the troops in reserve would have to enter from a board edge. The rules don’t exist in the current edition of the Anphelion Project but they still make great terrain pieces.
Typical of all Forgeworld models this one has an exceptional amount of detail. It adds a lot of flavour to the table top. I actually didn’t get a chance to use the actual rules in-game because it was faux pas to use Forgeworld at the time. The best part of this piece is the dynamic motion of the Hormagaunts ripping through the membranes.
The soil is incredibly detailed accompanied by spore pods at the base of the nest. I’d say your planet has a problem if these start to emerge on the landscape. Hail the four armed Emperor!
For the longest time I would peruse the internet when deciding on colours to paint an army. It’s my time to return the favour so I am posting my models. If you’d like to showcase any of your 40K models here at the Roost please drop me an e-mail. My address is on the sidebar. I’d love to show your work.
Thanks for reading.
