Tyranid Swarm

Here is a gallery of my Tyranid Swarm. It contains some of the oldest miniatures in my collection, some Genestealers and Tyranid Warriors from the early 90s. The paint scheme has slowly evolved with time, as has the army composition as well. I don't think that the swarm will ever be truly "completed" as there is always room for more bugs!
The whole Tyranid swarm

The first Hive Tyrant, armed with Venom Cannon and Scything Talons.

The second Hive Tyrant, this one I modeled to look like he's swinging around the rocks, ready to pounce.

And my third Hive Tyrant, this one from Forgeworld.

My deathspitter warriors, which came with the old game Advanced Space Crusade, way back in the old days.

The new Lictor, one of the more recent additions.

The old special character "The Red Terror", but in this Hive Fleet, it's the "Purple Terror"

The Broodlord, one of the most recent additions to the swarm.

They also look great when your Boyz are laying the dakka dakka into 'em, or hopping out of a trukk and laying the smackdown with the Power Klaw!
