Default What Comes with the Hive Tyrant?

I was wondering what weapons and bio-morphs come in the Hive Tyrant box? And is it metal or plastic? (I'm thinking metal, but hoping plastic.)

The Hive Tyrant model is a metal model. And the model itself comes in 4 pieces (Head, body, legs, and tail). Then I believe you get a Bonsword and Lash Whip and Adrenal Glands. I don't believe it comes with any other weapons. However, because it's so customizable, you can use parts from other models.

So Scything Talons from a 'Fex would work on the Tyrant?

The chest is three metal pieces as well as the head, two-part tail, legs, lash whip, and bone sword.

It comes with a plastic barbed strangler and venom cannon (with two feeder arms), as well as two large plastic scything talons, adrenal glands, toxin sacs, and extended carapace bits.

I didn't think it came with the Barbed Strangler or Venom Cannon. I thought it MIGHT have come with a set of scything talons. Then again, I bought mine like 2 years ago, so I don't remember much about the contents.

Yeah you can always use carnifex talons or whatever on him. It's pretty much the same thing.

I hear you on wishing it was plastic. It glues together easier, and the paint sticks to the model better.

I believe the sprue theyre talking about is the Tyranid monsterous creature weapon sprue. Mine came with it, and I have the thing sitting right next to me. You could probably find it on the games workshop site to see what weapons it comes with (Or a bit/sprue selling site).

If you're looking for devourers youre out of luck, as that only comes on with the main Carnifex sprue. You could convert twin-linked deathspitters to be twin-linked devourers, but I think those only come on the main Carnifex sprue as well.

If you pick up a Carnifex and a pack of greenstuff, you can make your very own all plastic Hive Tyrant

Hivefleet Moloch has a good, albeit short, tutorial on it.
