Fleshborer Hive

Tyrannofex with Fleshborer Hive[2]

The Fleshborer Hive is a large Tyranid Biomorph found on the Tyrannofex. Consisting of a large colony of the same breed of borer beetles found in the simple fleshborer, the fanged creatures stored in the bloated sacs of the hive lay thousands of eggs that hatch and mature at a fast rate within the chambers of the brood nest. Fleshborer hive ejects the beetles at regular intervals to prevent the Tyrannofex from exploding, raining them down upon nearby foes.[1]
