I just flipped through 2nd edition Codex Tyranids and looking at the Hive Tyrant miniature, I started wondering if the box came with both head options and selveral weapons options or not?

Personally, I never considered playing Tyranids so I'm not that familiar with the miniatures range. I mean, I know and can idetify the miniatures but this thing made me wonder.

Thanks for your help guys.:)

I believe that it had left arms with bonesword and lashwhip (one of each, not a choice between) and two sets of right arms with either a barbed strangler or venom cannon. I think that two heads were provided, one with tongue weapon (implant attack?) and one without.

I still use the second ed. Tyrant I got in a 'Nid army deal before the 3rd Ed. Codex came out.

IIRC you did get two head options. You got the choice of either a Barbed Strangler or Venom Cannon for a ranged weapon. The Lash Whips and Bone Sword were standard.

You might be able to look up the models on GWs site in the classics range...

It had all the options in one box so you had a choice of venom cannon or strangler and two heads. Bits are shown on the GW store here (http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=Individual&code=COMP0106002&orignav=301117)

Yep, that's correct. I used the extra barbed strangler right arms on a metal Carnifex conversion once the new codex came out...

Looks a bit odd, but it works!

...This set contains all the components to make a complete classic Hive Tyrant with choice of heads and ranged weapons.

Aaaalright, I could also have just looked at GW's online shop, silly me.:rolleyes: I was about absolutely sure that I'd just get a list of the bitz but not of actually what was in the box. Anyway, thanks guys.
