Hey all. Does anyone have a picture or know of a site that shows the various sizes of tyranid bio-titans? (also in reference to a Carni)

I'm working on a custom Hierophant and I may consider other titans, but no one in my area has the necessary models that I can check out for sizes.

So, any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hm.. You can compare the Hierodule with your Fist. It's not that large as you might expect.
The Trygon is not considerably larger than a Carnifex, only longer, and with more details (Just about twice as long I think)
A Hierophant? That is tough.. it's not THAT large... it just has extremely long limbs.. The Torso has somewhat the same mass as 2+ Hierodules.. the limbs are as long as 3 Dreadnoughts.
The Harrydain is about 2/3 of the size of a hierodule, but it is hard to say, as the limbs are COMPLETELY different.

Just an advice. I am currently collecting materials for scratch building Carnifices and Hierodules. I am planning to make Carnifices as large as a Land Raider and Hierodules as large as a Baneblade. I think this size is about right, because currently the Carnifex model is somewhat to small (even smaller than a Rhino!) Just keep in mind, the larger the model the more details you can squeeze in. And please show me the fruits of your work!

Unfortunately I've already looked at those pictures and they don't help. I kinda need more Nid vs Nid comparisons.

Barbed Hierodule is bigger in body size and certainly head size than its Scythed brother
