Happy New Year! And now time for a Winged Hive Tyrant

Happy New Year all! This post is a scheduled one: I'm probably celebrating like the rest of you!

Here's a Hive Tyrant I painted up over Christmas: a rescue job that I bought off of Ebay, and which has turned out very nicely.

He's in the Behemoth colours to match the rest of my army, but I couldn't give him the weapons I wanted (he came with the lash whip and bone sword already glued on, and try as I might I couldn't remove them). Bizarrely, he has no spiked front plate on his exoskeleton: the original builder perhaps didn't like them!

Here's his whip - ready to strike...

Here's a shot of his enormous wings. This is a pretty huge model, and sadly that means he almost never gets a cover save! (Unless he becomes a Flying Monstrous Creature, of course...)

Here's a nice shot of his carapace. I really like painting models in the Behemoth scheme: it suits the monstrous creatures really well.

Here's hoping for a nice new codex and a basic gargantuan monstrous creature unit in the New Year!

Happy New Year!

  1. Lash whip and bonesword is a decent combo for the Sky Tyrant formation(?), the one with a hive tyrant and two formations of gargoyles that become one big super formation.
