In anticipation of the new Nid codex's imminent release, I bought a load of old Nids on fleabay.

However, I'm a bit confused as to what the following models are, and whether they are complete, etc.

This looks like a ravener, but bigger. What is it?

This, I know to be a Lictor, but are those arms the right ones? The GW site shows the Lictor having different, more spindly, arms.

As for this, I have no idea. I can't find him on the GW website at all. He looks like a slightly chubby Warrior.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Red Terror, old Lictor, and old Tyrant Guard.

Second is a tyrant guard

I think the first one, the head is all wrong. I think its a conversion.

(Albeit with wings and another two heads. Yay daemons)

The Red Terror is not in the new codex, actually. Best use for the model is probably an extra Ravener, or maybe a Deathleaper conversion.

Red Terror, old Lictor, and old Tyrant Guard.

Edonil is right. I own all 3 models.

I know people have already answered the question, just want to point out that the Lictor is a Third Edition version. Actually it looks like this whole group is 3rd Ed models as those were the original "Tyrant Guard" and Raveners/the Red Terror made their debut in the 3rd edition Codex.

I thought the red terror was a lictor upgrade in the new book?

Thanks for all the answers guys. I've noticed the Tyranid Guard models are signifcantly different to the current ones. Would I be allowed to use the old Nid Guard models as Nid Guards with the new dex?

Why not? If asked just explain it is the T-Virus strain Tyrant Guard.

Yeah, you're allowed. They are official GW models, so they are legit for use.

There actually might be in-game benefits to doing so, since (I think) the old Guards are taller than the current ones, and are therefore more likely to grant cover to unattached Monstrous Creatures behind them.
