With nids getting their own pods, i had an idea on an army.

genestealer theme../..Space hulk ish tyranid army.

very few big bugs, alpha warrior, Death Leaper..stealers..hive guard..gaunts etc for main army.

Then of course.. Infested Drop pods(idea from infested command centers in starcraft)..it would take alot of greenstuff, but take a space marine drop pod, and green stuff it up, and some talons on it.

Pretty much a theme of Tyranids who took over space hulk, and the Hive mind uses it as a launch ship along with the rest of the swarm..

Thoughts ?

Sounds like a lot of fun.

I wouldn't use actual SM Drop Pods though. They wouldn't be on a Space Hulk. Instead, you can make them more like "escape pods" or even just random chunks of machinery/parts of ships that have been repurposed by the bugs.

i could possibly shorten the pod and use the lower half possibly, and turn top half into terrain.

Anything influenced by Starcraft is good in my book!

Screw Zergling rush.

Mineral Hacks!

But seriously, nice idea. Iwanted this originally, then decided to just go Tyranids. ANd then hated 'nids.

And what a glorious day it will be!

Whatever you do, you HAVE TO include winged warriors. No starcraft assault is complete without mutalisks.

If your going to do this army then you need a kerrigan conversion for one of your broodlords or alphas.

I fully support this.

And I see a horde of gargoyles being closer to mutalisks than warriors.

And you need some ravenors as hydralisks. Screamer killer carnifex as an ultralisk?

If you're going with the kerrigan conversion, you might wanna make it look like this:

Gargoyles are too small...
But everything else is spot one! Although your forgot to mention (the rather obvious) Hormagaunts as Zerglings, and Parasite of whatsitsname as a Queen (spawn broodlings anyone?).
