Welcome to Librarium Online!
Forgeworld make awesome models that is a fact. However the current Tyrant models are not set up in anyway like I would hope. The winged tyrant has a VC and the walker has 2xScyTals.
But they are bringing out new ones that are AWESOME!
While these models aren`t cheap, they are IMO the mutts nuts :lol:
Now I just have to sell my soul to be able to buy them :o
I'm not particularly impressed with the models, actually... I don't really like the head crests on either, and I have a problem with the lack of hooves on the tyrants... I'm just modeling my own tyrants, forgeworld style with the wings coming out of the upper arm sockets.
Having seen and felt large fw tyranid models in person, I'd also feel kind of wierd spending 100+ bucks on something no more substantial than the styrofoam peanuts it's packaged in.

It's just so beautiful! :rolleyes:I like the "claws" on the feet of the hive tyrant. I think it looks more scary. The model is great, but I wouldn't pay the price of the last one. I mean 100 bucks! wow! :wacko:I have a problem with the lack of hooves on the tyrant
You call those cheap implants boobs?
They aren't boobs, they're lies!
I REALLY love the winged scythe Tyrant!! It's b-e-a-utiful! I'm willing to spend $100 on this baby! With the size of the model, and the dynamic posing... he shall be mine....
Finally! Now only to wait for GW to redo the entire Tyranid range to have *CLAWED* feet!
I personally hate the damn hooves... Part of the reason I chose to go "extensive conversion" lane. Which has turned to be "finished when I get the parts and time" lane... ^_^;
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
My brother has the forge tyrant. the tyrant looks big in the picture but it is only like 1/2 inch bigger (hight wise) then the gw one. A LOT wider though, hella detail. He probly wont use it though, because it was like 70-ish (he works at a store so he got it for almost cost I think)whith shiping. it is really tender :wacko: .
My biggest complaint is that the winged one is missing a weapon. Although, I suppose you could call the claws on the feet rending claws. That would give you an excuse for it to not have the stupid hooves, too.
It is unfortunate how shoddy the resin Forge World uses is. On the bright side, there are much better resins commercially available for those of us who would like to make sturdier copies. Sure, that's slightly illegal, but why pay all that money for something that's too flimsy to use?
thank you and good night
The wings have build in ST ^_^Originally posted by Holothuria@Sep 11 2004, 05:33

i really want one of those but with that extreme price i may have to wait a little :/ and it's really shitty if it's as fragile as you say i have a feeling that those wings could break pretty easily and that would not be cool.

Yea.... there are a pair of built in ST in the wings... and it fits the fluff just perfectly... all nids got six limbs, so the dragon wing conversions we've seen are REALLY nice, but not fluffy... As for the flimsiness, isn't there something that it can be coated with to make it at least a little tougher? I'm not a DIY person, so does anybody know if there is such a thing? Anyway, have i been gone that long that we have cool new smilies?! :diespam: :hump: :rofl: :realmad: :hump: :hmm: (N) (Y) :blush: :realmad: WOW!!
