View Full Version : Unknown nids?

14-03-2012, 19:35
Don't know if anyone else saw this but in the "what's new today" article for Phil Kelly's nids (1st one) there are some odd models I don't recognize in the middle of the third picture (maybe the second) anyone know what these are?

Looks to me like some of the older nid models - Warriors and Zoanthropes I believe.

edit - Not Warriors, down below a few posts I believe is correct, they're old Tyrant Guard.

Old warriors? Zoanthropes? Old one Eye?

Do you mean the old Tyrant Guard models?

14-03-2012, 19:45
the old school zoeys and tyrant guard?

Hi Jack,

Well, depending what your looking at they are either the old tyrant guard (when they came with lash whips, although the models are too tall and lanky for my liking) or the old model for the special character "old one eye"...

Both quite ugly models and much smaller than the current monsters. Luckily they are saved by phils great colour scheme!!

3rd ed. Tyrant guard with Lash whips and Spine Shields.

Yeah, that takes me back to a proper Tyranid swarm. What's the model beneath the Trygon? I want to say it's an old carnifex, but it seems too small and too thin, and the crushing claws are throwing me off.

Looks to me like another Old One Eye Carnifex busting up something...maybe a Dark Angels dreadnaught? It looks thinner because of the angle, I'm guessing.
