Description

This multi-part plastic set contains 59 components and is supplied with a Citadel 60mm Round base with which to build either a Tyranid Hive Tyrant or a Swarmlord.

The Swarmlord is a legendary Tyranid creature created by the Hive Mind with the purpose of rethinking the enemy and creating new strategies when standard Tyranid strategies of physical and biological adaptation fail. It destroyed empires and wiped out civilizations, and now it is the galaxy's greatest tyranid threat. It is known in the Empire as the Swarmlord, but it has been known by many other names including Tyrantlord of the Hive Mind, Herald of the Great Devourer, and Destroyer of the Kha'la Empire.


It is the culmination of the evolution of the Swarm Tyrant bioform, a truly unique monster. The Swarmlord is essentially immortal, like a Swarm Tyrant, in that once killed, he is reborn by the Swarm Spirit with exactly the same experiences, character, and knowledge, essentially becoming stronger than his predecessor each time due to his new experience . But unlike a Hive Tyrant, the Swarmlord's reincarnation appears to be a stress-induced response, triggered only when conventional Hive Mind strategies fail and more ingenuity and tactics are required. To this end, the Swarmlord possesses more autonomy from the Hivemind than any other Tyranid creature, and his bond with the Hivemind is so strong that he can appear in any Hivefleet, transcending all physical boundaries between the various fleets. The swarmlord has eons of battle experience and bloodshed to draw on. In fact, it's as old as the Tyranid race itself.

For weapons, the Swarmlord wields four bone sabers that crackle with destructive power, capable of slicing through adamantium and force fields as if they were nothing. Distinguished from the commonly encountered bone swords of the Tyranids, each saber features a crystalline growth at its core not native to the galaxy, which partially protrudes through the serrated surface of the blade. The Swarmlord can parry so quickly with these sabers that his foes find it almost impossible to deal a hit with the creature
