Tyranid Hierophant Bio-Titan No.2 - Hive Fleet Gargaroth

Bio-Titan Classification: Insidious
Tyranid Genus: Hierophant Bio-Titan
Primary Armament: Gargantuan Scything Talons & Bio-Cannons
Hive Fleet: Gargaroth (Behemoth Splinter Fleet)
Broodkin: Insidious(Hierophant); Shrieker(Scythed Hierodule); Flesh Stripper(Scythed Hierodule); Gorger(Barbed Hierodule)

Owner: Goddenzilla
Location: Sheffield, UK
Comments: My Hierophant is mounted on a rather enormous 12” base which was made from 5mm thick styrene.  I’d very much recommend basing this miniature as the legs can be fragile and are prone to warping if not properly supported.  It is crammed with exquisite detail – it really was a pleasure to build and paint.  I really can’t recommend it highly enough!

Many more Bio-Constructs, Imperial Knights and Titans can be found at Goddenzilla's hobby blog: check it out!

Beautiful transitions and striations on the chitinous carapace
As Goddenzilla says, basing the Hierophant is essential to stop those thin legs and claws splaying
A bug from nightmares, a superb sculpt by Forge World
 A gestation or absorption pool or Hive Mind node? This planet is doomed!
Great detailing on the fleshy tendon parts too, very insectoid and alien
A fearsome beast indeed, thanks for sharing Goddenzilla!
