tyranid bits maybe? I'm not too impressed, by the way, the thing doesn't even care about the (orange?) snot, the legs of the rider are way too large, and the whole beast is meh...
sorry for me being my usual grumpy self :p

thx im not sure if it is bits tho, ill be checking now but im sure its a full model

Yeah now im deffinitely sure its not bits and ive seen another example of someone using this model as a mount except it has arms instead of just having legs. Really any suggestions are great; even other specialist games or anything cos the longer i think about it, the more i think it's not a GW model.

It's not GW bits, it's another manufacturer. They've vut the torso of the rider in half and stuck a GW gobbo top half on.

I'm at work so i can't check which one at the moment.

Just to let you know you're not the only one not having a clue: never seen it before!

And I tend to check out quite a few mini-manufacturers pages.

I found the picture of another use of this model, just so other people might recognise this model with arms :]

I think those are old Growlers from VOR the Maelstrom. Growlers are a race of T-Rex Gorilla Squigs.

I think those are modified growlers maybe...but growlers didn't have a big tail like both of these fellows have...they were more like gorilla/Tyranids.

Although on the other hand, that guy in the second image riding the beast looks like he might be a scratch built Neo-Soviet radiation trooper for VOR so hmmm...

You could probably make that out of a wolf rider kit and a hormaguant.

Nope, you guys have got it all wrong.

It's a Fomorian Reaver from the Celtos lines, originally made by iKore and then bought and very much in production by Brigade Models and can be found here (http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/Celtos/The%20Fomorians.html)

Hope that helps.
