Adeptus Titanicus – Leviathan Bio-Titans

In the early variants of Epic and Titanicus, there were Xenos available as part of the ranges and not just the Legio Titanicus. And while we saw Bio-Titans in the early 90s for Epic, later when Forge World covered large units and models for 40k and among them an updated model of the Hierophant, that went far from the design of the 90s.

And while building the Tyranids from the Leviathan boxed set (boths the swarms and more unique units), I had the urge to compare them to my Adeptus Titanicus models. Because some of them, would in my opinion make for great bio titans of different size.


Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Tyranid Units

Building the last part of our Leviathan coverage, the regular Tyranid units after showing the HQ and Elites earlier this week. The Tyranids have a lot of miniatures in this set, a total of 47 (!) and beside the impressive unique poses, we have a few units and swarms to take a look at.

We have Termagants and Ripper Swarms, Neurogaunts, Barbgaunts and Von Ryan's Leapers, all as push-fit models, yet quite dynamic ones, but more on that further below. The Tyranids have the big advantage that their biomorphs and mutations make it is easy, to add new units and creatures to the army, with less trouble of retconning them. Yet, some of these are updated miniatures, others are new creations, but more on that in the review itself.

Warhammer 40,000 – Leviathan Tyranid HQ and Elites

We have covered the Space Marines from the Leviathan boxed set and the general unboxing, now in the next step, we take a closer look on some of the unique HQ and Elite units of the Tyranids.

There's quite a bunch of unique models in this box, Winged Tyranid Prime, Carnifex Screamer-Killer, Neurotyrant and Psychophage. These are push-fit models as the rest of the boxed set and are partially on their own or in mixed sprues, more on that further below. As the Space Marines are shown in the colours of the Ultramarines, the Tyranids are painted in the colours of Hive Swarm Leviathan, giving the boxed set its name.
