Tyranid Swarmlord by SarahJaneArt Tyranid Swarmlord by SarahJaneArt
I'm pretty excited by the new Tyranid codex release possibly this November.
This piece pretty much sums up my excitement for some new kick ass Tyranids!

Looking good, except color scheme is pretty monotone

Behold the SWARMLORD, the Tyranid Hive Mind's greatest minion, the Doom of Tyrun, Thandros, and nearly Macragge, the bane of the Orks of Octarius and Gorgluk.

I have a question. If the Hivemind added Tau biomass to the Swarmlord, wouldn't that make him a weeboo space communist locus? For the Greater Omnommm?

I know this has been a long time but, is anyone else sad that all the named characters were removed and the Tyranid codex was nerfed?

Man I so badly want to take on a swarm lord. I have all these stern guard ready to take it on with this soon to built storm eagle. I think I stand a chance what about you?

Absolutely, the swarm lord is king as long as he is in close combat. However, with a Stern Guard and Storm talon, I would have a Swarm Lord with a Hive guard retinue to be point equivalent. You would shot him to death but close combat he might have the upper claw!

Me too, though every other army in our little gamer haeven is dreading it. Bring back our Carnifexes!

Indeed! The carnifexes need some love. Apparently they will be bringing back the eternal warrior with the synapse special rule....

Hope the codex would be fine... I'm totally bored with all "tervigon and gaunts are all you need" blaadiblaablaa!

I wanna field Swarmlord, Hive Tyrants, Tyrant guards, Hive Guards, Warriors and carnifexes... no single stupid gaunts...

And this work looks awesome! Worth of faving!

I totally agree with you! Before the current codex I had all monstrous creatures and winged Hive tyrants with eternal warrior! Oh, the good old days :-(

Haha, kinda looking a little Pacific Rim-y with the blue in the mouth and the bits on the arms.  Clearly there needs to be a Hivefleet Kaiju.

Very well done :D
