    What or where is the Hydraphant?

    I have come across references to the Hydraphant several times now. However I've never seen one, a drawing or a model. Does anybody know what this thing is or what it looks like, it would be cool to know. I've heard that they are even bigger and stronger than Hierophants and have even nastier bio-weaponry.

    Here's all the info I could find about it on this page (under Bio-Titans). Species of Tyranid - Lexicanum

    Any info people have on this thing would be very cool.

    Ask and ye shall receive.



    From wikipedia:

    Hydraphants

    Hydraphants are long range bio-titans armed with warp blast weapons, bio-plasmic breath, massive claws, and spines that can be used to damage enemies. They are the largest tyranid creatures capable of planetary deployment. They are similar in appearance to the Hierophants.

    That photo is surely an old epic hierophant, the hydraphant never got a miniature, nor 40k nor epic.

    Really? In that case, my bad.


    It appears to be a conversion work. Found a pic of an epic heirophant.

    I remember those. The first picture is an old Hierophant model from epic, I had one, it's not a conversion. The two lower models you posted are the old Hierodules before the Hierodule was redefined as either scythed or barbed by Forge world.

    I think maybe that some of the rules have been rewritten and the original Hierophant was maybe renamed Hydraphant, but I don't know.
