Won't there be ridiculous postage and import charges though?
Vanguard don't have much of the range at the moment and HLS are not trading so who else stocks them in the UK?

That I couldn’t say, but you might check with vanguard and see when he expects a restock, and possibly ask him to add what you need to his next restock order.

EU rather than UK but excellent sculpts - https://wintersbioforge.com/product-cat ... ound-bugs/

3d printing tyranids is always an option too, plenty of free STLs out there.

Do you know why he no longer does the big bugs? I am sure that’s what he originally started with.

What big bugs? I don't recall him making more than his current epic range.

To be honest I am probably misremembering, for one or other reason. With tyranids it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between scratchbuilds/conversions. He was also only really active on the french forum so could be lost in translation too. Or just a scale perspective thing, his ground bugs are bigger than the equivalent GW 'slug' models. I notice he does have pictures of all the Rupex variants, quite possible that the model I am thinking of is just the other Rupex (Haruspex proxy) that someone put on a bigger base/alongside smaller models.

If you mean a biotitan, you're probably misremembering from the Rupex model. It looks like the new style hierophant but was much smaller IIRC. There's a bunch of STLs I can point you to privately.

The only one I’m not as happy with in terms of STLs I have is the hydraphant, I have a bunch of (metal) Hierophants as per the spidery forge world model, and like that style for the hydraphant rather than being a variant of the chunky Dom STL. Not sure if anything new has surfaced since I collected my STLs. I will probably reprint my hierodules too, I scaled them down as I was worried they would look like they deserved more DC than the Hierophant, but TBH it probably would be fine and they’re not much bigger than tank sized.

What are people using the various Vanguard 15mm Entomorphs as in 6mm?
Are the Incisors big enough for Carnifex?
Are the Harbingers better suited for Razorfex or Scythed Hierodules?

Yes, the Incisors are fine as Carnifexes. Here are some on 25mm round bases. I don’t have any of the Harbingers, but I believe they’re designed to double as modern-size Hierodules.
