View Full Version : Heirodule/Carnifex Size Comparison

09-09-2009, 19:17
Hi guys,

Simple enough question: to those of you who own both a Heirodule and a Carnifex, would someone please post these models side by side (with special attention paid to the size of their scything talons) for the purposes of size comparison. I'd like to know if the Scything Talons on a Heirodule are appreciably larger than those on a Carnifex.

Thanks in advance,

Here's (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog/scythed-Heirodule-col.jpg) one next to a termagaunt. Total length of the hierodule is about 10 inch. So yes, the are a lot larger than those on the carnifex, or at least the arms are.

got a barbed hierodule myself....

think of it like this...

termagaunt is to carnifex.....what carnifex is to hierodule....

I'd love to take a picture of mine, but I have to buy one first... (and even then I'd probably go for the barbed instead)

Here are couple of pics of mine:

Yes, I realise that there are no talons on the Fex, as I tend to build shooting variants. Luckily that means that the talons are left in the bitz box, making comparison shots easier:

The bigger Fex talon:

The smaller Fex talon:

So the bigger Fex talon is pretty much identical in lenght when compared to Hierodule's, but Fex talons it is pointier at the end. The Hierodule arm is considerably bigger though, but the actual talon is not.

That is EXACTLY what I was after Garoth, thanks a lot for your help.


PS: nice Heirodule.
