It has come time to say goodbye to an old favorite army of mine.  This Hivefleet Kraken Tyranid Army has served me quite well over the years.  It has carried me to many Rogue Trader Tournament victories, several army painting awards, and even 2nd place Overall at the 2004 Atlanta Grand Tournament.

Many of the models are converted or sport pieces of Tau armor on their bases (Tau are their favorite blue food).  The army display tray has sculpted alien terrain and resin effects.  Every model is completely painted and based, right down to the eyes.  Included in the force are:

  • Hive Tyrant
  • Converted Flying Hive Tyrant
  • 4 Warriors
  • Lictor
  • 30 Hormagaunts
  • 22 Gaunts
  • 16 Genestealers
  • 5 Ripper Swarms
  • 8 Gargoyles
  • 9 Spore Mines
  • Zoenthrope
  • Carnifex
  • Forge World Scythed Hierodule
  • 4 Objective Markers
  • 4 Custom Defense Lines
  • Army Display Board themed to match

At one time, there were even more pieces.  What you see here is the core of the force after some pieces found their way into the digestion pools for repurposing.  I hope that you enjoy these bugs the way I have.  They are now up on Ebay and waiting for their next meal… er… home.

You can see some older pictures of the army before it was updated for the last Codex here.
