Tyranids: Deathleaper

This is my first Nid Special Character model. The Deathleaper never caught my eye as much as the Red Terror did in the past, but when this bug became part of the regular codex I got one to try it out. So far he has seen action in one battle and died a brave bug to Tau Commander Farsight. I will have to keep trying him in other games when I have the space and points to deploy it. This bug will be the top bug of my new Lictor force now. It was a fun side paint project at least, maybe next time around they will bring back the Red Terror.....

Tyranids: Lictor Brood

Lictors are a great deep strike unit if you have some points to spare. I was lucky to score 2 of the special edition Lictors from the last army box set, when I got one in my army box I bought and then later on in a random buy online. I also have the standard lictor that is sold in the current line. I think this will be the limit of my lictor force for a good while. Sneaky Gitz!

Tyranids: Ravener Broods

Time to expand that new Fast Attack selection with another unit or 2. When I first got the last Tyranid army box set I got 3 Raveners in the set, which I didn't do much with at first. As I gathered more units I got 3 more raveners, but these were not complete. So I split the ones that were complete with all arms and made the others into a rending claw unit. So I was able to field 2 units of 3 raveners each. of course I've been told this is too small a unit, but I will have to give it a try when I can and see how they perform. I'm thinking of teaming these guys with the Trygon or Mawloc, sounds like fun!

The Slashers....

The Rending Crew....

Enjoy! :)
