‘Nids Mr. Rico! Jillions of ’em!

Pay no attention to this post unless you are interested in looking at old, giant space bugs. I have a crate of Tyranids on my shelf that I know it is very unlikely I will ever paint them, so I’m prepping them for sale; inventory, photograph and bag. Here’s the lot, it’ll head for ebay soon unless one of my son’s friends purchases them.

For starters here is a first edition Biovore. Metal, unfortunately missing it’s left leg.


Next up is three second edition metal Biovore’s, all intact.biovores-3

A first edition Carnifex; metal, painted nicely, and intact.carnifex-1-1carnifex-1-2

A second edition Carnifex with a metal body and plastic arms.carnifex-2

Another first edition Carnifex with a metal body but it’s original limbs are missing and I’ve had to substitute plastic ones.carnifex-3Gargoyles (4); metal, but not in the best of shape. The two on the ground have their flight poles broken off inside their bodies and will have to be drilled out. One is missing it’s wings and I only have the one flight pole.


Genestealers (24); First edition plastics, most have a washer weight under their bases for stability, all with all four limbs.genestealers-1

More Genestealers (34); Unfortunately only enough arms for sixteen of them, and only fifteen bases. Farther down I also have a ton of Termagant spare parts which could be used to finish and mod these bodies.genestealers-2

Version 1 Hive Tyant; Metal, intact, even an extra set of gun arms.


Hive Tyrant version 2; Metal, no arms to be found.


Homagaunts(9); Metal, intact, eight have bases, there is one more body (not pictured) that has no arms or base.hormagaunts-metal

Hormagaunts (17); Plastic, eight with bases and washers for weights.hormagaunts-plastic

Lictor; 1st edition, metal and intact.


Armorcast Malefactor 28mm scale; One big chunk of resin, intact. Back when GW was making the game Space Marine and Titan Legions they were producing unique units in 6mm scale. Armorcast had the license to produce the units in 28mm scale, not many of them around anymore. I’m not sure but I believe the Malefactor was supposed to be a troop transport for bugs.malefactor-28mm-1malefactor-28mm-2malefactor-28mm-3

Ripper Swarms (5); Plastic, kinda cute.ripper-swarms

Spore Mines (10); Metal.


Termagant parts; Many on sprues, some loose, the next three pictures show them all.termagant-parts-1termagant-parts-2termagant-parts-3

Termagants (17); Version 1 plastics.termagants-old

Termagants (22); Version 2 multi-part plastics armed with pistol things.


Tyranid Warrior #1; 1st edition metal, painted and intact.


Tyranid warrior #2; 1st edition, metal, painted, and intact.tyranid-warrior-2

Tyranid Warrior parts; 2nd edition plastic, there is enough on the sprues to make two complete 2nd edition Warriors and quite a few extra bits for whatever, including a metal rifle arm. The extra bits could be very handy for the next entry.tyranid-warrior-parts

Tyranid Warriors (6-ish); Plastic, 1st edition, all missing arms, only two bases, one missing leg and one missing head. Could easily be finished up using the 2nd edition Warrior parts above.tyranid-warriors-old

Tyranid Warriors (3); 2nd edition plastics, complete, washers under the bases for weight.tyranid-warriors3

Tyrant Guards (2); Metal, one with an extra washer under it’s base for weight.tyrant-guard-1tyrant-guard-2

Zoanthrope; 2nd edition, metal, extra washer under base for weight.zoanthrope-2

Zoanthrope; 1st edition, metal, intact.zoanthrope-oop1

That’s everybody! I wish I hadn’t misplaced a few limbs over the years that I’ve had these and I’m certain it will make a good army core for somebody else.
