'alo. I'm torn....Just torn... :cries:

I'm a non-tyranid player, but I want to buy I monstrous creature, just to paint it and display it around my room.... But I can't decide which to buy..

Okay, so should I buy a Trygon... Or a hive tryrant?

Don't try to talk me out of it. I play CSM, but I'm getting bored with painting them, so I want to get a giant tyranid to try out new painting techniques. I might play nids' eventually, so both would would be okay to buy in advance. I personally would love swarmlord, but they don't sell those..;)

Okay....FEEDBACK!

BTW, I have like 50 bucks, so I could buy either, but I don't want to buy old one eye,lictors, carnifexes or anything else..yet.. So don't suggest those.

Buy the Trygon, and make it a daemon prince.

The Hive Tyrant is a great model, one of my favorites. Unfortunately it is metal. The Trygon is also a great model and goes together with very little fuss. Unless you don't mind working in metal I would recommend the Trygon.

The hive tyrant is plastic. At least it doesn't specify on the the site..... Anyway, I thought the trygon was a great model too. Also, if it turns out to be a limited run model, I'll be pretty well off. I like the hive tyrant, but it might not be the best collector's item.

Don't think so

Hah, my original plan was to buy a daemon price, so it's pretty rad you came up with that. I might paint it to look like a daemon prince, like throw some icons on it. haha.

Yep, it is. It comes with a bunch of biomorphs and optional pieces, so I doubt it's metal.

Don't care what the website says the Hive Tyrant is metal unless you are talking about a forgeworld one which would be resin. The Trygon is a new plastic kit so it will not be limited release where as eventually when they do a plastic hive tyrant the metal will become a classic range then a collectors range and then it will become a true collectors item.

Ooookay, then. I'll take your word for it. No one I know plays nids, so I've never seen a hive tyrant before.

ED: Why do you sound so angry?

the body of the hive tyrant is metal, all of the arms are plastic.

I assure you....that you are wrong.
I own one
The Torso, head,legs and tail, bonesword and lashwhip are all metal
Everything else is plastic.

Sorry if I sounded angry. It was not my intent. I was just trying to present the facts.

Trygon is deffinately the better model.....
but I'd get a Forgeworld Greater Daemon instead. They are stunning, and since you play Chaos you'd actually be able to use it. And being a Daemon it gives you some style flexability.

But the Trygon is a much better model than a Tyrant.

(IIRC the Tyrant is a hybrid model, with some weapon options being plastic and everything else in metal)

The trygon is the better looking, more impressive show piece model, I'd go with that.

i can 100% safely say the Hive tyrant is metal well the 5 i have are and unless a new model snuck out out in the last 48 hrs count on them being metal, the only plastic in the kit is weapons.

I personally think the Tyrgon is a outstanding model and looks amazing on a table or on a display case so i vote for that

I thought I remember seeing some place that they were going to start making an all plastic tyrant at some point in the near future. Really don't know for certain.

yeah that rumour kept popping up in the nid thread before they were sold, but it may of had a element of truth but it may in the stage 2 realise but at the current moment they are still metal.

Forgeworld Lord of Change mhmm.. I want that model so bad. it looks amazing and its HUGE!!!!!... If oyu want a Daemon then. Be'Lakor..... if you want a Hive Tyrant or Trygon/Mawloc... then Tyrgon/Mawloc... the Predator Face look is amazing.
