Tyranids are the ultimate galactic predators, devouring all in their path and using the stolen biomass to bolster their own seething ranks. A Hive Tyrant stands at the head of each swarm, synaptically commanding Tyrannofexes to rain destruction upon the enemy, Carnifexes to charge forwards and shatter formations, and Trygons to burst through the ground and obliterate the startled foe.
Comprising everything you'll need and more to form a Spearhead Detachment in Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse (or to kick-start your Tyranids collection with a bang), the Tyranids Spearhead Detachment set includes your three mandatory Heavy Support units (and a fourth for good measure!) as well as an HQ choice to lead it. As a Character, the Hive Tyrant/Swarmlord can also serve as the Detachment’s Warlord, enabling you to generate an additional Command Asset each turn.
A Tyranids Spearhead Detachment includes the following multipart plastic kits:
- 1 x Hive Tyrant (Supplied with a Citadel 60mm Round Base. Can alternatively be assembled as the Swarmlord.)
- 1 x Carnifex Brood (2 miniatures, each supplied with a Citadel 105x70mm Round Base. One Carnifex can alternatively be assembled as Old One Eye.)
- 1 x Trygon (Supplied with a Citadel 120x92mm Round Base. Can alternatively be assembled as a Trygon Prime or Mawloc.)
- 1 x Tyrannofex (Supplied with a Citadel 120x92mm Round Base. Can alternatively be assembled as a Tervigon.)
Warhammer 40,000 rules for these units can all be found in Codex: Tyranids, while a pdf with their Apocalypse datasheets can be downloaded for free from Warhammer40000.com/Apocalypse/Datasheets
