Default What is that?

On page 154 of the Apoc Rulebook, the Tyranids are taking on the Tau. But what exactly is that... 30-story tall... thing supposed to be taking Ion Cannon hits?

Most likely a Trygon

A Tyrgon... um... have you seen the size of the Gunship rolling up the base of this thing? If that Gunship were a normal-sized model... the Tyrgon is 4+ feet tall. Page 191 shows a Tyrgon, and it's nothing compared to the thing on page 154. If I asked what that was pointing at a Reverent Titan, don't tell me it's a Wraithlord.

No need to be a O'res'dy about it.

That is definitely a Trygon. Look at the Carnifex next to it, that has picked up and is holding a devilfish on end... that's obviously a Carnifex, but is way too big: it's taller than a 'Fish is long!

Looks like the artist just envisions the Tyranid MCs and GCs to be much bigger than the models.

Tee hee hee.. It does seem that those blurry sketches in the books are never in-line with the models or the more detailed pictures. So now here's the question, which picture has the scale right? 98-99, or 190-191?

The use of "LOL" is looked down upon here. Please make an effort to avoid "txtspk" and use proper grammar and spelling. ~Gada
