Tyranid Hive Guard/Tyrant Guard
Hive Guard are heavily armoured gun-beasts bound to extremely powerful symbiotic bio-weapons. They are created to guard the Tyranid Hive Ships and capillary towers that stand sentinel over prey worlds, until such time as intruders come within range of their deadly weapons.
The Hive Guard can be armed with either an impaler cannon or shockcannon. There are enough weapons to arm the complete unit with either option.
Tyrant Guard are the ultimate bodyguards, it is the entire purpose of their creation to protect their Hive Tyrant. They take the form of colossal living shields, all but impervious to even the heaviest weapons.
The Tyrant Guard can be armed with a pair of crushing claws; bone sword and lash whip; or a pair of scything talons. There are 3 sets of each weapon option, allowing the entire unit to armed identically. As well as this, each Tyrant Guard can be modelled with battle damaged shoulder armour.
This plastic kit contains 102 components with which to make either 3 Hive Guard or 3 Tyrant Guard.
This kit comes supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
