I love the look of the Toxicrene so much, I just had to rush out and buy one. The tendrils, the tentacles, the pulsing spore sacs on the carapace… the whole thing is just one horrific, creepy monster. After the jump there is a size comparison shot featuring some of my other Tyranid models.
As you can see, the Toxicrene is huge. I would say it’s bigger than the Haruspex and Tyrannofex and it dwarfs a Carnifex!
I can’t wait to paint this model. Who else collects Tyranids? Will you add one of these to your collection? Or do you prefer the Maleceptor?
Oh yes, I will definitely get one 🙂
I looks awesome and it's good ruleswise, at least imo.
As I have to transport my models quite often, can you tell me if you think the tentacles are magnetizable?
If I ever throw money at 40k ever again it's going to be tyranids
I don't collect Nids but this model is sure divining swinging me in their favor. I did, however, rush out and get one as a gift for hubby, since they're his favorite army. I might need to pick one up for myself, it's just too cool.
I prefer the looks of the maleceptor, but unfortunately its rules as absolute rubbish. I might do a conversion so the toxicrene doesnt have these weird tentacle arms.
Have this model also, and I think with the new Drop Pods and rules Tyranids are finally getting what they deserve. Watched a 2 hour documentary on Gieger of the making of Alien over on Youtube last night.
I know what I'm watching tonight then 😉
I've put the link below for the Alien Documentary…
Legend! Thanks mate.
How are you supposed to travel with that model?
Fits perfectly in the boot of my car.
Very HP Lovecraft…Kinda cool.

After all the Hobbit and Space Hulk posts I almost forgot you're a veteran Tyranid collector!
The Toxicrene is a beautiful model I would like to get my hands on. However I still have a Trygon to finish and a lot of other models with tentacles to think about it.
Can't wait to see one with your color scheme, the pattern will look great on the gigantic carapace!
