So, working on a kaiju themed nidzilla list. Curious what you folks think would be good representatives of Godzilla themed kaiju. I have the following:

King Ghidorah- Dakka Flyrant
Space Godzilla- Swarmlord
Mothra- Crone or harpies
Gigan- Crone
Ibirous(Lobster)- Carnifex with crushing claws

Others?

Thorn back carnifex would be Angerius?
Trygon is Megalon, riptide would be Mechagodzilla Mk. III, Tyranid Prime would be Minilla/Godzilla Jr.

I approve of this idea.

I really like Trygon as Megalon. Brilliant.

Was thinking either ravenors or warriors as the spiders? Shrikes as the mantis kaiju?

Storm Raven/Eagle as Super X

So can the Imperial Knight be Jet Jaguar?

Forge World is apparently making a Tyranid beast around the size of the Wraithknight, so that seems like a good option for a Kaiju.

Now, if only GW would produce a kit that could be used to represent Jägers.

You will of course need to bash one of your tyrants into a Mecha-Zilla.

Truly, I can only see mecha as a riptide.

The Knight Paladin is Gypsy Danger, the Wraithknight is Crimson Typhoon, the new FW Knight Lancer is Striker Eureka, so I guess that leaves the Riptide to be Cherno Alpha.

I was only referring to Godzilla kaiju. Mecha godzilla is a riptide in my eyes.

What about Mecha-Streisand?

The knight rules could also be used to represent Ultra Man. I'd want a Necron-based knight-type thing to come out though if I wanted to do Johnny Socko and his Giant Robot.

EDIT: If you go with Ultra Man, then an AM/IG or the Militarum Tempestus could be used for Science Police. Have the troops drive around in Taurox vehicles.

How would you balance a model that nose heavy?

Doy, the first color scheme I'm doing on my Heldrake is a Rodan motif.
