Hive Tendril Nundu
Brother nathan posted a topic in + TYRANIDS +so after a long time spent lost in the warp and returning and attempting to learn very different set of rules til i last played ive decided to shake off nids as my primary learning army(with ba as my artistic practice army and iron warriors as a work on til new codex drops) id a pretty good rep with my nids playing when i last played and there's been a few changes since. ive a rough temporary list which ill ink in another post. still very undecided which hive fleet and what direction to go with warlord traits and psychic powers etc. iirc when i last played no one unit mattered too much in play it was more about presenting too many options and trying to time everything to hit at once and panic my opponent... so when i do get it working right much would have been running cover and deep striking. not sure how well such will work with all these d weapons and multi wound models etc but sure is all about the learning curve for now. anyway piccys before i get a list in too army shot(not all pictured was mostly aiming for my list atm trygon prime and rear zoanthropes zoanthrope and my old doom model converted biovore from tyrant guard parasite of morthrax conversion warriors my old faithful flyrant a hybrid broodlord lictor model ++ Battalion Detachment 0CP (Tyranids) [80 PL, 11CP, 1,478pts] ++ + Configuration + Battle Size [12CP]: 3.

Deathleaper/lictor Conversion Fin
Brother nathan posted a blog entry in Brother Nathans...everythings...so i finally finished my lictor conversion from a gsc patriarch and left over trygon talons. pretty straight forward one but effective and considering weve still no plastic lictors this is a nice alternative and a nice difference to my other lictors and the feeder tendrils are straightforward and rather addictive to add.. now i really need to finish my diama and then do a similar post on that...
Angels test. And lictor wip
Brother nathan posted a blog entry in Brother Nathans...everythings...Done some work last few days on multiple things. Not my most efficient method but hey. So started painting a lictor iv had from a bin buy. Had no talons but had thrse ones of a dnd model i will hopefully work on soon. They are bland detail wise compared but wirkable i think. Its nids and lictors they shouldnt be cookiecutter. There should be variety. Til we see what happens with lictors with the leapers announced. (Sound good to me) And then blood angels. Or more apprioately my storm angels. Theve been my own successor for 15 til 20 years. Historically a darker red than bloodangels but following main bloodangels symbolism. So test paint and when working on the intercessor i decided to try a brighter red and... i kinda dig it but will it be too bright? Will it fit in. Or does it not look as bright as i think it does /does it work for the new marines to be brighter. Im split. Thoughts if you will.
Evil Eye posted a blog entry in Evil Eye's Butterfly Brain Induced Hobby NonsenseHaving finally acquired a 3D printer- to be exact an Elegoo Mars 3 Pro- I've been having fun testing it out. I've done three prints so far, the first being the default rook models, followed by a few Tyranid things from MyMiniFactory, including Hive Delta's free Carnifaux body (which is awesome!). However, I was itching to try and print something I'd made myself, so I went a bit mad and sculpted up 5 'niddy beetle wing sets in the span of a few hours. I then printed 4 of them (one was kaiju-sized and would take 7 hours to print!) to test them out. And they worked! The second set down I hadn't appreciated how small I'd scaled them, and for shrikes would need scaling up a bit. Also the bottom-most pair which were intended for rippers (yes, those are actual printed pieces!) are far too tiny for use on game pieces, though I reckon for a display model they could be fun. Anyway, I'm really pleased with how these came out, and I'll definitely be modelling up more bitz for printing. I want to distribute them too, so I may be setting up an MMF store soon...watch this space!
Thanatar as tyrannofex?
Runefyre posted a topic in + GENESTEALER CULTS +As the thread title would suggest, I'm wondering what your thoughts would be on using a thanatar calix model to count as a tyrannofex with rupture cannon to run alongside my GSC. Personally I think it would fit thematically with my personal cult that is mechanicus themed.
