    Leaping Warrior set?

    Wow look at this set! They finally came out with a leaping warrior set! Awesome!

    The only thing is that it doesn't include leaping legs. It pretty much just allows you to make a lictor with a warriors body and legs. Weird.

    Don't know. Like I said, I was excited when I saw it but then it just turned out to be like a lictor.

    It's an easy enough conversion to make your Tyranids leaping. Just make an incision on the back of the legs, pin it with a piece of wire, then greenstuff until it's smooth with the skin of the model. And for a nicer look just readjust the arms. It costs at most .50$ a box.

    A friend of mine found an even easier way. Since the legs peg into the lower torso, just shave the pegs so you can tilt the lower torso into a leaping position. No greenstuff, no pinning, and you can make it look like it's charging much easier.

    That's no leaping warriors, it's a special lictor character for the canadian "Rise of the Swarm" campaign last year.
    They called it "Death leaper".

    I bet it would look much cooler if it weren't for the fact that the chest looks all messy. And the paint job doesn't really show much detail either (at least not in the picture). But, as said before, it would be easier to just convert it. GW likes to take advantage of people, so don't buy "conversion" (aka rip off in a box) sets.
