Spat from the quivering orifices of hive ships in low orbit, the Tyrannocyte thunders through tortured skies to slam into the surface of its target world. The impact causes its gravid belly to split, disgorging the host of Tyranids that dwell inside.
This 124-piece plastic kit makes one Tyrannocyte. The armoured carapace can be modelled closed to the body or open to act as an airbrake as the Tyrannocyte makes planetfall. It is armed with five deathspitters which can be replaced by barbed stranglers or venom cannons.
This kit can alternatively be built as a Sporocyst and Mucolid Spore. The full rules for using the Tyrannocyte and the Sporocyst and Mucolid Spore in games of Warhammer 40,000 are included in White Dwarf Issue 41.
