They're called The Chaos Hive. It's what you get when an interstellar battle happens between traitor legionairres and a few hive ships.
Suffice to say that the Chaos Gods were watching when an insanely tortured dreadnaught with it's dataorts flapping open falls into and somehow interfaces with the brain of a hive ship.

Icky.

That's the first figure I got for them. He's a lieutenant.

here's some figures from my first squad.

Oh they work alright!

I like the hazard strip / wasp carapace, and the conversions are of course crazy stuff. Now, bring on more!

The one with the gaunt head and the mouth arm to me is the coolest looking one. Very interesting concept, me likey! They look like a rather benificient chaos deity decided to give them lots of gifts, and he had a hivefleet for spare parts.

very nice conversions
The last guy, with the long neck, has a very well done bolter gun fused with a fleshborer. looks seamless.
Will be interesting, so keep it up. Make sure not to get too repetitive though. With someting like this, individuality is key.
Keep it up!

The lieutenant's pet Spawn. His name is Tiddles.

nice! you should mix them more together other than arms, legs and heads. i mean, like one half of the torso tyranid and the other half space marine. all mushed together with some greenstuff.

That's a possibility for the future. Currently I'm trying to work out how to do daemons and keep them a bit niddy.

Thanks, I cut the arm with the fleshborer at the magazine of the gun and cut the bolter in the same place. A careful bit of pinning and then some green stuff work. I paint the green stuff the same red as the "non-carapace" nid bits and that seems to blend it together.

Of course, the fact that it's easy to sculpt tortured flesh helps ;) :D

I kept the paint scheme simple because the conversions are so tricky.

Some bikers:

This one was tricky. I had to keep all four of the front arms in position while waiting for the glue to dry.

A fairly simple one.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh holy hell those bikers are nuts! #3 & 4 are my favorites, 3 because it just looks solid and mean with that cowling and horns, and 4 because I think the legs turned out better there.

Madness though, keep it up.

I'm using a VERY old pot of gold paint for the metal bits, so it does have a slightly green touch to it. (GW pot, circular pot, no label)

Lovely bikers, smooth conversions. My only beef is the marine in pic.4, his neck looks really long and looks a bit daft.

Yeah, I messed up on that one a bit. He actually only has the front armour of a marine. His rear part is gaunt carapace. The head sits funny on the interface between the two.

And for my next trick:

Richard the Daemon Prince

He has Daemonic Stature so the base figure is the Inquisitor "Chaos magus" mini.

OK, here's Dominic, the defiled Defiler.

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c383/Gramakin/Chaos%20Hive/Defiled4.jpg

this took ages to conceive and build.

So far in play, he has shown a penchant for killing dreadnaughts.
