The Hierophant is about 10-11" tall, so it's not all that giant really. The Harridan is the most massive of the Forge World bugs by a good margin.

The Reaver Titan is 16.5" tall IIRC, and while I know plenty of people with Warhounds I've never put it side by side with them to see the height difference.

In British parlance, I would say its positively weedy.

Mike Biasi had Armorcast scale Heirophant legs sculpted in clay in his fridge for a long time, but that's as far as the project got.

Here is a pic of the Epic 'Phant scaled up to Armorcast scale. The ruler is marked in inches. It would have dwarfed the Forge World version in mass and height. The design needs to be updated a bit to current Tyranid style, but It could be done.
