The Hive Mind loves some living artillery, from the spore mine-firing Biovore to the mighty Exocrine. They’ve now got another beast to add to that list, the Barbgaunts and their bio-cannons – which are actually the brains of the outfit!
The Heavy ability makes them ideal for plonking down in sight of an objective to rain fire down on your enemies, while Blast makes you even more dangerous against larger units.* Any infantry that survives the initial attack will also find their advance disrupted
Yep, those bio-cannons fire chitinous projectiles that slow your foes down.**
Barbgaunts are little more than living weapons, their bodies and biological cannons slaved to the will of a pulsating ganglio-parasite that piggybacks them into battle. Once there, they unleash volleys of chitinous barbs that detonate with the fury of violent muscle-spasms, transfixing nearby victims with a hail of jagged projectiles.
This multipart plastic kit builds five Barbgaunts – Tyranid creatures engineered as biological artillery. Each of these hunched and hulking gaunt-forms is fused to a grotesque barblauncher – five stout limbs serve to support its living weapon or provide a stable firing platform, while the sixth is little more than an atrophied talon. These beasts of burden are controlled by cerebral parasites, fleshy tendrils digging into each Barbgaunt’s eyeless skull to direct its organic payload.
This kit comprises 20 plastic components and comes with 5x Citadel 40mm Round Bases. These push-fit miniatures can be assembled without glue, and are supplied unpainted – we recommend using Citadel Colour paints.
