EP 7: Hive Fleet Moloch: An Exclusive Interview
Show Notes

For our next video episode of the Xenos Alchemist podcast, we speak to one of the most well-known Tyranid artists around: Hive Fleet Moloch / Marco Schulze!

His conversions—featured in the Codex, White Dwarf magazines, and even the Forgeworld Imperial Armour Four: The Anphelion Project book—launched a thousand hive fleets. But never has there been an in-depth interview with this Tyranid vanguard organism. Until now!

In this episode, we review Moloch's start in the hobby, his time collaborating with the Games Workshop studio, his time away from the hobby, and what brings him back today.
