Welcome to my blog,

Yesterday I sold 2 army's of mine. Cathcing cold hard cash, so I drove as fast as my moped could go to my local hobby shop.
I had this idea of making an tyranid army, but not an ordinary: 2 hyves, 6 fexes and 2 ripper swarms. Yeah

So i bought 1 hyve and 3 fexes. He didn't have more so I drove to the next hobby shop. Yeeaaahhhh he had 1 carnifexe on stock.

I already had 2 fexes and 1 hyve and also the rippers.

Here are some pictures, now gotta come up with an army list.

Will post some pictures of the already primed fex and hyve soon.

Comments are welcome.

Still got to come up with an way to make cheap rippers ideas are very welcome.

Cheers,

Ah! A binary log featuring a Heavy Tyranid army building; this is going to be interesting. What combinations do you plan to use your beasts in? Might be good to test out first, since non-cooperation between your big uns will get them killed.

Well ill make 3 heavies they will be like 300 points each one indivual operating. And 3 elites max 135 points.

They will al be individual operating and all specified on 1 thing so i got an wide arangement of attacks.

Will make an army list this week =)

Okey, good luck. Then cooperation between the different specialisations (like with Eldar Aspect warrior) will be important for you.

Erm, Elites cost a max. 115 points.

But a specialization for every Fex will be very interesting, I'll be following this! Btw, did you check out GW's site, there's a very nice Carnifex conversion article there, for inspiration, if you need it.

My bad 115 then, I already read that article that one and the article in wd about hive fleet moloch are very inspiring for me.

Sry, but wow 3 Box shots .... now what?

I don't see how flesh hooks would make sense on a Dakkafex...I mean chances are that if you need to get over a piece of terrain to reach a specific enemy, you are probably within range. If that doesn't make sense, well I dont know how else to explain it.

TBH it's probably got something to do with moving around in cover, try asking the man himself, i believe he's on here Gazzor is his user name.

Models with flesh hooks treat vertically impassable terrain as difficult, thats why he has them, go where the enemy can't reach you. Very useful in city fight.

Look forward to seeing pictures of the models out of the box. I've got one of these armies coming up for commision soon so any inspiratin would be great :D

Cheers

I like your idea of DG colors, perhaps look at your avatar for color choices?

I had an dg army, thinking of making the armo scorpion green and the flesh rotten flesh well that will be the primary colour.

Any other ideas?

Pekel

Those primary colors sound good, and you could use pink for the muscle and really fleshy bits (like the barbed strangler and venom cannon tubes).

Good luck, I too am doing a similar army. 2tyrants 3 guard(or 1 tyrant, 1 broodlord with 8 genestealers), 6 fexes, 16 genestealers, 27 flying warriors

Its the ultimate big gribbly thing w/ no shooting(not a single shooting attack!) army. In the playtests I have done, I lost a game to chaos, but I did pretty well against IG.

Nice pose on the Tyrant, very cool centrepiece he'll make. Colour scheme sounds good, I agree with pink for the muscles or a yellow/brown colour to stress dirtyness.

FDG
28-01-2007, 11:21
Yeah the pink on the muscle should do it, will paint some test pieces to see how it will turn out.

@chaos: wow thats an sick army,

i'm workin' on the next heavy now. He will be smarter so he is standing up more.

28-01-2007, 11:25
Sorry, to clarify since I've seen no correction of this, you must keep the value of your elite fexes under 115, so no more than 114.

Liking the Tyrant, and it's nice to see some melee on a Fex, even if it's just the talons (I do the same, nothing dedicated for CC as I'm a coward ;) )

FDG
01-02-2007, 18:40
Ah well 114 points then ^^

Here is the fex http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/Deathignator/30012007584.jpg

He hasnt got arms yet cause i dont know if i will make him an elit or heavy. Any opinions ?
The head is a mock up!!

Cheers

That looks promising! He looks like he's screeching at a red sky in defiance (or like he's just hit by a Lascannon;) ).

Make him at least partially CC (forearms), such a great model shouldn't be spoiled by an ugly configuration (ie, Gunfex). Although it's entirely up to you, of course.

Okay, a lil late but here is a new pic, couldn't get mutch done cause of work.

The howling fex wil get zome wings but won't be able to use them YET. (don't know the word for it)

Still wip as you can see. Haven't made mutch progress because of work and my chaos patrol.

cheers
