I will post the fluffy before the photos are ready. I am just waiting for the wash on the bases to dry
HF Cicada, when it was a splinter, crashed onto a Deathword. Only a few ships and the Norn Queens vessel survived. There they encountered a strange group of Orks, and if the Queen was to survive and rebuild the fleet, they had to devour these Orks and whatever else they could on this planet.
As the two forces collided, some new strains of Tyranid were developed to take out as many Orks as possible, while staying alive themselves to converse biomass. One of these strains was an elite genus of Termagaunt specially designed to combat Orks. The Orks called these new gaunts "two 'eaded dakka bugs" They appear to be of the Termagant genus, with some genes of the Hormagaunt mixed in for a speed boost. They have a massive devourer symbiote grown into their chest cavities, and to the Orks, they thought it was a second head! The Queen noticed the Orks uneasiness with the gaunts appearance, so she did alter the symbiote to make it look like a second head. The gaunts middle set of legs are grown into this symbiote, while their main upper arms are used for stability, speed and to claw at any Orks if they should be caught in close combat. These gaunts prefer hit and run tactics and are usualy lead by a larger "dakka bug" mutant with synapse capability (I will be making this count as tyranid prime later). Should the leader bug be slain, the lesser bugs tend to lurk away until another synapse creature contacts them. A new leader will be instantly grown to bring the squad back to full potential.
