In fluff terms, how big are they? By they, I mean:
Termagaunts, Hormagaunts, Genestealers, Warriors, Tyrants, Carnifexes, Zoanthropes, Biovores, and just for kicks, hierodules.
I ask because gaunt models look bigger than marines, but carnifexes seem suspiciously small for strength 10 monsters that can drop-kick a landraider. Answers in feet, metres, whatever, just make sure its coming from fluff or something. Any wild musings should be labeled as such.

I believe the termagaunts are about the size of large dogs..genestealers are about man sized i think..the rest I'm not too sure on
in the imperial guard codex there is a sketch of a mass IG vs Nid battle and the lictors are bigger than the tanks. or at, least i think they are lictors.
If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it's heroic!
Edicius is wrong. So there. *sticks tongue out childishly*. Genestealers are about 1.5 times bigger than an sm, fully armored. all nids are bigger than they are portrayed as models on the gaming table. Termies are in between big dog and man sized, think 16 year old kid. Lictors are pretty massive yeah. I think biovores are the sizes of pick ups. Not quite sure about the others. Warriors are about the size of lictors, which are about, as said before, a little bit bigger than a tank. tyrants are *****ing huge. the old school zoanthrope was warrior size, but the new ones are about the size of biovores. ripper swarms are about the size of a generic bookshelf lying horizontally. spore mines, maybe small-medium dog size. i have no idea about gargoyles, maybe a motorcycle? carnifexes i believe are 2-3 feet taller than lictors/warriors, about the size of a tyrant. did i miss any?
Gaunts: I reckon their shoulders are 1.50m from the ground i.e. the size of a 12 year old boy.
Genestealers: Think Space Marine size
Warriors: About 3.5m-4m id say. They are big
Tyrants: Id say they could probably reach about 8 metres (even the models are twice the size of warriors or anyone else )
Carnifexes: I'd say their about 6 metres tall, but a hell of alot wider than any other Nid. Think living tank.
Thropes: Hard so say with these guys, since they levitate. Id say they mesure about 3-4 m.
Biovores: Think car.
in the index article of the battle of macrage, it said that they encountered a hive tyrant that stood over 6m tall,
also a hierophant bio-titan is even larger than the emperor titan, towering way over 50m high, that's one hell of a big bad bug
as for the rest of size I agree with cybugger, though I think that the carnifex might be bigger
I think that a ravener is around some 12m in lenght
also how large would the Red Terror and Old One Eye be
Correction, the Carnifex is probably about 8 m (like Tyrant), but the fact that it is soo huge and bulky makes it look bigger. As for Old One Eye, Id say he is about 10 metres tall, bulkier than a Carnifex, and his claws must be about his size (imagine taking one of them in your arm... ouchies). If a Ravener is about 12m in length, the Red Terror must be about 15-17 metres i.e. a bloody sight bigger than most things
Hiveships are big as the biggest Imperial Battleship, and Ripppers swarms are small as a cats.Originally posted by cybugger+--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(cybugger)</div><div class='quotemain'>Hierodule: Big...Biiiig....Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig [/b]
Hierophant is even bigger than hierodule.

Old One Eye is the same size as a Carnifex, Red Terror i thing is a litle bit larger than a Carnifex(from tail to head).
