That is an impressive model. Might make an interesting alien enemy in Inq. games. The alien brain would make a Tyranid substitute, an infiltrator, perhaps.

oooo, very tasty, big too.
It's all fun and games until someone shoots their own guy with a Graviton gun instead of the MASSIVE SPIDER.

Treading close to the IP-mark aside, I think that Alien Brain would make a great conclusion to a Tyranid campaign - the Inquisitor and his retinue uncover a new breed of Zoanthrope which is ten times more powerful than the previous incarnation. Good find.
An Inquisitor walks into a bar - he rolls D100 to see if he hits it.

the Alien Brain and Pod-Brain are quite clearly based on some of the Tyranid concept art from the latest round of 'nids - which isn't a bad thing,by any means.

I would probably use the Wyrm as something non-tyranid - a dangerous Indigen or some last surviving Megarachnid, maybe. It just doesn't seem sufficiently tyraniddy to me.

I like Troll Forged (especially in concept - I wish I had anything sculpted for them to cast up) but they really don't do anything I'd be interested in buying.

Megarachnid, someone's been reading  the Horus Heresy books...
Great suggestion. Megarachnid ahoy! :D

Hm, yes, I wonder what 40k model this enormous alien sculpted by Hive Trygon could possibly substitute for?
