the Hierophant is part of my 4th ed army, and as such are not part of the 3rd ed army which i just showed. there's the reason

Looks awesome must have taken a lot of afternoons and weekends but looks well worth it. Just one thing are the biovores painted to look like they are sharing a joke or is it just my imagination?

Great models. Yet why do the biovores look like they have rending claws on their front legs? Nothing really I can see to improve with my humble skills.

that depends. they are Commonly called that. but, what do Devil have in common with Devourer?? thats how i think. i named mine Devouragaunts because it sounds better to me. theres no official or unofficial way to name them, exept that they are a Gaunt

The first 3 letters are common. What does termagaunt have to do with Fleshborer? Or more specifically, Hunter Slayers have to do with Flesh borers?

I'll tell you... nothing! Tyranid nicknames are derived from Imperial guard troops. Lictors are stalkers and spooks for instance.

Devilgaunt is the kind of name an imperial guard trooper would give a devourer armed gaunt. Devourergaunt has no wit or poetry to it.

no matter. if i prefer Devouragaunt, that's what i call them. aslong as there is no law or official fact that says that they ARE devilgaunts, i am free to use Devouragaunt. and this is no big deal, no need for a discussion.
