well holy fuck hormies are just straight superior to gargoyles then? they are cheaper, have the same length of movement, have a smaller profile, 2 attacks, I5, and scoring

only thing the goyles have is flying, blind, and 6+ poison. i guess the fleshborer too.

how do you guys think the hormagaunt compares to the gargoyle?

This guy was there when the Tyranids began.

He is sentient and independent from the Hivemind .

A semi-perfect Kerrigan

But Tyranids are not mindless..

They have personalities and independent thought like anyone else.

inb4 GW gives the Newcron treatment to their other "faceless horror" faction and the Swarmlord really does become Drizzt of Tyranid.

You're thinking of the Norn Queens. They're probably the highest form of Tyranid we know about, but they're not really 'leaders' in the conventional sense.

>>25621255
Very, very large. Hive Tyrants are about three times the size of a Space Marine, and the Swarmlord is going to be larger still. I'd put a Space Marine at 7', a Hive Tyrant at 20', and the Swarmlord at 25'.

Why does /tg/ hate me so much?

All I ever really see these days is Swarmy bashing for no real reason.

Is it my fluff? The fact that i'm an ancient, deathless hive tyrant in super beast tactical skill mode?

Or is it my rules, that i'm a psychic powerhouse that has warp mastery 2 and get 4 powers to pick from?

Is it my model itself? That i'm just another Hive Tyrant with four Bonesabres and a different head? It is it the personality behind me, the fact that I only ever show up when shit needs to get done and I generally get the shit done?

Why does /tg/ hate me so much?

>The Swarmsword: This exquisitely crafted bonesword was once wielded by the Swarmlord himself. Though the antique bio-weapon has long since been cast aside by the mighty Hive Tyrant in favour of his famed bonesabres, a spark of the Tyranid leader's indomitable will still resides in the blade, spurring its wielder on to greater acts of heroism in the name of the Hive Mind.

Nah, they screech and hiss and chitter. On Macragge the Swarmlord even "bellowed a challenge" to Calgar, that they might meet in honoraburu batturu.

Because your fluff flies in the face of one of the core themes of the Tyranids.

You look pretty cool though. Not the GW model, but in art and conversions.

The Swarmlord finally breaks free from the dominion of the Hivemind, thanks to Tech Sorcery of the Necrons. He remembers his former life and his feeling of guilt and sorrow come flooding back to his mind. He swears vengeance on the sinister Hivemind.

He frees a number of other Tyranid leaders and leads them in rebellion against the Hivemind. The Swarmlord and the other freed Tyrants channel a psychic scream of defiance that shatters the Hivemind and its ability to control the Tyranids. The fragments of the Hivemind that remained are imprisoned and suppressed inside the minds of Tyrants and the Swarmlord.

After countless ages of being slaved to the Hivemind, the Tyranids are free to search for their own individual destinies.

The Swarmlord having freed his people decides that rather than rule them as a ''Tyrant'' he would become their protector and messiah. He would see his people find a new home in this new galaxy and prosper as a free people.

Frankly, I think the current fluff for Hive Tyrants and the Swarmlord has already crossed the line. The whole thing about regrowing specific Hive Tyrants with specific memories doesn't even make sense to me.

Swarmlord and Creed up against Calgar and the Ultramarines.

Who the fuck wins?

hey Braith, Yeah I kinda figured I would need to talk shop with DLFG at some point.
Got any Ideas for color scheme? I'm thinking about doing a greenish color for the carapace. But am also considering the old standby of Hive fleet Leviathan if nothing particularly grabs me.

>>18966680
No current meta to compare it to, I've got other armies as well, This is just for some decent fun I don't expect to put it in a tourney and win with it. but as long as I can have a fun time building it and playing a bit with it it will be worth it.
