no offence but i really dont like the Tfex, Its a very good conversion, but it looks like its fireing a gun out of its nuts.... the prime is pretty nice though, looking foward to seeing them painted

Nice, what are those things on its back? They look like scaled up possessed parts.
I did mine with the 'chin' gun as depicted in the book. Nice to see the huge variety of tfexes out there.

Very nice work. What did you use for the bone swords?

Looks like a Soulgrinder claw to me.

They are indeed soul grinder claws, my girl had some spares and they looked like nice mutations

For the bone swords I cut up some Tyrant talons, then filed down at angles to make it look like a blade

Genital Cannon: 48" range S10... yes please!

I'm actually modeling mine right now (well... when I'm home as I'm currently at work. Blast you 12.33 hour days!). Using a carnie head and chopped off the lower jaw and put in the mawloc jaw. Chopping off the spines and adding spikes in its place. Using the now-huge maw, I'm dropping a cannon inside his mouth :D

Nice conversions, whilke it may look like a Genital Cannon I do like the posing of the T-fex and it certainly looks monstrous enough :)

That carnifex doesn't only have a large nose, but he's got a large hose, too.

Well, that's what GW drew the picture like.

Agreed that it looks stupid but until an official model gets released, we're stuck with "penisfex".

I should make one of these, only mine will be bigger, so when I post it here, someone else can post theirs, and say 'mine's bigger than yours!' then another person shows us both up with his.

It's going to be glorious.

It's things like this that give a whole new meaning to "creaming your opponent"




hiyoooo
I'll try to put up some pictures of the color scheme I may use on my army. It's a charcoal base with Boltgun Metal on the chitin and talons, iced with an Ice Blue topped off with Ice Blue stripes on the body, looks pretty cool, not too sure if it's too ostentatious or not.

Just wait till someone uses that for an acid spray...

All I can say is that you're likely to receive comments like this every time you field it.

The picture in the codex looks nothing like that.

The codex art is pretty half-assed looking, though, almost like the artist just started with a xerox of a Carnifex and changed the angles of its body parts while superimposing a cannon in the first empty area he noticed on the creature's body.

I think a Biovore-inspired Carnifex with a spinal cannon would have been much cooler. Instead we got a lumbering dork with repurposed melee weapons instead of genuine stabilizer limbs, and a goiter-mounted cannon. And why the hell does he have a mouth? It's impossible for him to bite anything! I guess the Hivemind counts on him giving really rousing speeches on the field of battle...

I take the view that the weapon is an extension of the 'bio plasma' mouth thing, and that in future evolutions the mouth will disappear altogether.

It walks on stilts and overcompensates more than firewarriors.

So I guess it would be good to be "hung like a T-fex?"

Yes.
Yes, it would.

It's a sure way to impress the tervigons.
