Hi, since the latest codex came out, I took it to myself to become a proud owner of a tyranid expeditionary force.
There was a serious issue with the codex, the insane amount of lack of models which in my opinion it was utterly .... AWESOME!

Yup, I went into conversion overdrive and within a few months I had most of the stuff I wanted to use. Better late than never, ill start posting stuff here to give people ideas, get more inspiration and get more motivation to finish things before the next codex arrives >.<

My WIP is:
Tervigon Mark II (conversion of a conversion to make them "legal")
Tyranid Aegis defence line conversion
Finish my (Close to codex) Doom of Malantai conversion
Finish my (Close to codex) Parasite conversion
Tyranid terrain (various)
and of course
Painting some more models...

Mycetic Spores

All scratch build (Including the base, excluding a plastic tyranid tube on top) . Inside theres sealing foam (not sure its called like that in english) Papier masse and Clay/Green stuff sculpting on the outside. Gore was made with Tamiya clear red and Humbrol clear red (amazing stuff) and glue. Hope you like it :)

P.s. Inside the large tubes theres magnets to hold weapons/tentacles (one of the pods has tentacles hardwired with wires and gs)

Tyranid Prime

I didnt want to move too far away from the warrior model, so I kept the general look but tried to make him look a bit more ehmm thorny O.o

All Boneswords and Lashwhips are made from plasticard, green stuff and various pieces from weapons and arms.
Fully magnetised arms

Shrike Warriors

Fully magnetised arms for various options. Pictured with my favorite setup.
Wings are from Gargoyles (my gargoyles got harpy wings from wfb) and Lashwhips and boneswords as mentioned before are scratch build.

The spores looks suitably disgusting!. Well done

I'm not sold on the tentacles and whips though. I feel they come out a bit thick and since they are basically untextured it comes of as rolls of greenstuff rather than an alien appendage. Perhaps add some squidstyle suctioncups?

If you mean the Spore tentacles, I dont like them much either, however they are not painted yet. The lashwhips on the shrikes are not tentacles, they are made to resemble symbiotic organisms inspired by snakes (i agree some more painting details could help. Im not that good of a painter though ><)

Tervigon Conversion

This is one of the models, Im working on the other 2 to elongate their legs and change their base so as to make them appear taller and larger (for tournament purposes because the new Terv models are massive!)
3rd Rack on top made of GS, gore made with papier masse (toilet paper mixed with watered pva to create pulp). Magnetised of course.
