Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have heard of bio-titans and how they are super awesome creatures for tyranids. But I have not seen them in my codex nor have I found any concrete info on the web. I did a search on these boards about it but I;ll ive found is people discussing small rules about them.
What are they exactly and where can I found out how to purchase them?
Welcome and hello. Well anyway, Bio-Titans can be found on Forgeworld. They are massive creatures, I mean massive! I dont have one personally but I know I am going to get one some time. They are about 10 inches long and 5 inches high. I wouldnt recomend about getting one in your army now, you need to build up to a 1500-2000 points. Once you get a good understanding of the Tyranids, than you should get one. Btw they are 80 pounds, or 160 American...
thats not true Marneus what a "Bio-Titan" is, is a Tyrnaid Monstrsity that has mass points but he is right about forge world they have the uber carnifex and the only flyying weapon harridren they are cool but they are super expensive, also you need opponents permmision to use and you can make your own with the Bio-Titan rules in CA.
oh and welcome :w
I would say the above two posts are only sort of right. The original Bio-Titans are found in the Epic game system. Which GW has decided to re-release, this may be why you have heard people talking about bio-titan rules. Nice minis they were too.

Chemicalcaveman's right, but on account of this board I believe Bio-Titan rules for 40k are more relevant...
You can create Your own Tyranid monstrosities (including Bio-Titans) with the Creature Design Rules in
WD 255UK/ 25XUS
Chapter Approved 2002
Chapter Approved 2004
The most up-to-date are the ones in CA2004, so I suggest getting that from the nearest GW stockist. If You live in the UK, order it online from mainland Europe or the US.
If You don't fancy creating and modeling Your own, then Forgeworld has 3 large, expensive Tyranids available: Harridan, Scythed Hierodule, Barbed Hierodule. Rules are in the Imperial Armour Update.
Remember that this stuff, both CDR and Bio-Titans, can only be fielded with opponent approval.
