Hi all,

Those that saw it will know that my old nidzilla paint scheme sucked. 'Your evil Twin' persuaded me to change it, and so I have. (Also, he owes me two carnifexes, so I'm happy atm!)

Looking cool. The blue on the carapace looks excellent. I had some doubts about the Flyrant to be honest when I saw the first pic, but then when I saw the last one I changed my mind completely. It is awesome, good work!

the wings on the tyrant are huge, what are they made from?

looking forward to another fex

Much, much better than the old scheme. These look really good.

I would say that they are the wings from the new Balrog from the Lord of the Rings game.

Yup, balrog.

Thanks everyone! The next fax will be a heavy support choice, and I'm going to go nuts with biomorphs and such.....

Ok, I know I promised a HS carnifex but that nust wait til tommorow when My Evil Twin buys me one!

In the meantime here's some ripper "swarms". I say this because there is only 1 ripper per base. With only 6 in my bitzbox, and lacking the recourses for BwBits, and the money to blow on a box set of gaunts for only 5 rippers, I used what I had. To make up for it, I decided to have a lot going on in the bases, to make it look as if there are more there. It has sort of worked.

Just to say, I have now tided up the bases with black on the side rim:

Those are what you call death rippers, they dont need to be a swarm they are well 'ard :).

That Flyrant Is kickass and the paint scheme works well.

I love these Nids! The large ones always benefit from a great paint job and these are fantastic. Looking ahead to more of the same!

Thanks guys, I'm still debating on whethere to do a shooty fex or a cc fex, so sugestions welcome.

I will do 1 shooty, 1 cc and one mixed for the three elites, and the three HS.

Your Evil Twin
17-05-2007, 22:33
Glad to see people agree with the new scheme!!..no offence but the last one looked like over grown humans :D

I know iv told you this befor but maby if i post it here and people agree you may do it, Please, please swap the arms on the hive tyrant, the claws should be in the top..see pic http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=Individual&code=99110106040&orignav=10, otherwise he looks abit crap!

Great paint jop though keep it up!

Your Evil Twin

The Keeper of Secrets
18-05-2007, 08:26
Ok, I will consider it. The reason they are like this is that the Bonesword/lashwhip arm combo are what signifies him as the leader tyrant, so it makes sense for them to be the primary arms.

Cheatah
18-05-2007, 08:46
Those rippers seem so lonely... ;)

Nice painting btw :)

Okey dokey....

Here is the promised 2nd fex. Get this. The store charged my friend's card twice and it read as once, so he paid them 53 for one fex! Luckily he noticed and phoned them, and now my hobby store owes me a 'fx and pot of superglue!

Anyway, he's a HS shooterbeast. I merged heads> Gave him acid maw so that he is Ok if charged.

I'm loving the Carapace, great colour!

Firestorm Falcon
20-05-2007, 20:44
Very nice, I would have done the tongue in a contrasting colour though.

Your Evil Twin
22-05-2007, 17:01
Very nice mate, this armies shaping up rather nicely!!

However I agree with Firstorm, a nice bright yellow or acid green would liven up the model abit and look...acidy...?

Also you should darken the green on the gun so its more in keeping with the rest of the model and youd get more definition! (that goes for the others as well) oh and highlight the top of the funels to match the carapace...IMO :D

Keep up the good work (oh and dont listen to your mum...this is much more important than revision :D)

Your Evil Twin

The Keeper of Secrets
22-05-2007, 17:08
Yeah, I might do some finishing touches to the army when it's all there, but for now it's as it is.

Ok and cheers for giving the statement to the store, I picked up the glue today and they say a fex is due in on friday.

I'm redoing the tyrant's arms now.

Yah, but those rippers either all smell, or have a disease of some kind, so no-one wants to go near them:D

love the combination of green and blue, very vibrant! great work on the carapaces. the head looks like it could use another set of highlights though, just to pick out the details. but maybe thats just cause of the lighting

The Keeper of Secrets
28-05-2007, 16:01
Ok, fiasco at the store as they don't have a fex! They're petty excuse was that GW don't have any. Bah!

Anyway, I used the debt o pick up a half price battleforce, as I'm going to be doing swarm nids in "army in a day" with My Evil Twin.

So here's a fex for y'all. Sorry for no WIP shots I went on a bit of a frenzy with this guy. IMO all Nidzilla armies should have one of these, the classic, Screamer-Killer:

Excellent, the screamer killer's pose is brilliant It reminds me of a creature in the metroid games.

proximity
31-05-2007, 11:13
You know that if the bioplasma kills a model, the rest of the screamer killers attacks wont be able to strike ya? (they just have to remove the model in B2B).

31-05-2007, 15:07
You know that if the bioplasma kills a model, the rest of the screamer killers attacks wont be able to strike ya? (they just have to remove the model in B2B).

I never quite understood this problem. Just don't use the Bio-Plasma when you're in base contact with just one model. The rules say it may be used, so it may also not be used.:cool:

Anyway great work KoS, the highlights on that Tyrant's exoskeleton are fantastic. Keep it up.:)

The Keeper of Secrets
31-05-2007, 18:41
Thanks guys. No, I hadn't foreseen that problem, but will use hiveminion's solution.

Next fex will be an ubercombaty HS fex.

That Screamer Killer is sweet. I am so going to steal that idea. I also like how you have done the Gunfex. Im building 2 of those at the moment and cant seem to get the BS and VC to sit right. How did you do your one?

The Keeper of Secrets
02-06-2007, 09:23
I switched the shoulder joint round to face the other way (on whichever one needed doing, and then did the sam thing on the opposite gun feeder.

To get it to fit you might have to simplify the pose. I was going for something much more eccentric but it didn't fit.

03-06-2007, 08:40
Great job, I'm new to all this and just brought a hive tyrant and a box of gaunts. I've assembled the Tyrant and started painting some gaunts, I'm going with a more lizard sort of nartural colour (browns ect) mainly coz I've got my own pet bearded dragon for insperation. Its all a lot harder than I thought it would be though so I'm checking out all the threads i can find on Nids to help me out.

Thanks I did go back and have another look at your Fex and i did notice the shoulder joint thing. Im just not sure if i have the skills to do it, without messing it up. I may practice on other stuff i dont need, before i touch my Fex's.

Thanks! :D I'll take that as acompliment, but it didnt take much skill. Just don't cut through the skin tear bits (<+++>), and make it a nice clean cut.

It was intended to be one. As for skill, its not that i dont have any skills, its just mine is in messing things up. I should be ok after some practice, some swearing, some sulking and a tantrum if need be.:D

09-06-2007, 22:31
Ok everyone, sorry for the wait but here is an UPDATE!!

This is the second HS carnifex, and the biggest of the lot, well exceding 250pnts. He has 4 different head biomorphs, which was hard. It left the head lookin bottem heavy, so I added the spike.

He is ripping a guardsman in half (fun), and is the only one running, or stomping. The gs streaks on the base are going to be guardsman blood.

In the best situation this guy has 10 strenght 10 attacks (D6, +1, +2 on the charge, and +1 when 4+ models in B2B contact. Then a special bio plasma attack). And they all reroll wounds, cep't Bplsma.

Anyway, enough chat, lets move onto the pics:

Absolutly. D6 attacks is a nightare to face.

He should have another one with Crushing claws and rending claws, D6 rending attacks!

The Keeper of Secrets
10-06-2007, 08:57
You read my mind Jokre....indeed the next fex will have crushing and rending claws. The ones I picked up from the battleorce wariors fit the bill too well not to use.

After that it's only a Dakkafex (2x Tw/l Devourers), then I'm done:eek:

The Keeper of Secrets
10-06-2007, 11:55
Thanks to the generosity of El-Diablo my search for spore mines is over. He has sent me the macragge ones, free of charge. I'll paint tham when I get them, and put pics up. They should be all the ones I need, with only 2 fexes with the biomorph. They will all count as toxin mies, as they are the only ones the biomorph can produce. Would anyone have a problem with this in a game?

...Did you simply add ALL the biomorphs? :D...my only crit would be that the head looks...to... upgraded, its bordering on silly, nicly modeled just a little over the top!

Bring it on! (false confidence needed here as I realise I'll be outnumbered anout 18 to 1, after seeing his army today).

I see what you mean about the head, but it's probably because its got green stuff and so looks messy. Should be better when painted.

I love the Guardsman being torn in half! I'm usually not a fan of excessive gore in models, but that posing is so evocative - I just imagine the poor guy freezing up in terror before the monster barrels through him, ripping him in two without slowing down. :D

The Keeper of Secrets
10-06-2007, 20:31
Ha ha, absolutly. The original idea I had was that he was stationary, toying with the doomed guardsman. The he spotted something else to kill and so moved on. He's frozen having just ripped and started to move.

Your idea works better though. I can imagine him smashing throught lines, claws open, grabbing and ripping the first thing to get caught!

11-06-2007, 16:57
Ok, sort of mini update. My Evil Twin now has paid me 15, and owes me a further 25, so, with 10 coming on the 15th as well, I'm set financially.

So, while I wait for the money to come rolling in, I thought I'd edit my latest fex's tusks. He really had nothing to show him as the big daddy fex, so mI decided to largen (considerably) the tusks.

Here are the new pics (also viewable are the flesh hooks):

Those look awesome! now I want to abandon all my gaunts............My only criticism would be that I wouldnt take rending claws on a fex, your killing on 2s most of the time anyways so I'd just buy him another set of scything talons.

Also for spore mines you can make extra ones by sticking some of the gaunt adrenal glands and the carnifex toxin sacs together and adding tentacles with gs.

Yes, good point. But:

a) The claws look stupid on warriors, and fantstic on fexex.
b) People aren't expecting it. He looks small in comparison to the Big Daddy and Gunfex etc so people forget about him. Scything talons make a tyranid look so killy, and so he gets shot, and likely killed. This beast is one of the olny ones I actually expect to get into combat, and rending is GOOOOOOD!

Spore mines. That's a good idea! I'd use it, except the eight I'm getting are coming for free so....meh.

Thanks for the comments.

Nice fex, especialy like the small army, there very evil looking dont no why, seems as if theyd pick up usucpecting guardsmen, cut them in half then feed them into its mouth while it crushed stuff...or reach into tanks it had just riped open and kill people inside as it climbs over or...well the list goes on :D

I also like that weird arm combo think although if there being suported by 2 arms the claws should be considerably bigger otherwise why the extra arm? I would add a layer green sruff over the whole thing to make it bigger!

However you have overdone the grey highlights, they are to bright no and dont contrast as well with the light blue! (however i do like the whiter claws, a great improvment)

Anyway, look forward to this project being finaly finshed!!

[EDIT] What are those horible black dots on OUR bourd?? Thos craters are just rings in the plaster and dont merit such solid black blasts!! You must al least go back and dry brush the rims gray again so they look abit older!!

@el-diabolo: Nope, expecting them today! Thanks again!


@YET: yep they are the craters. But what's the point in going over them if you plan to RIP IT UP???:mad:

Anyway yes the gray was overdone a bit, but not enough that i feel I need to correct it. With the claws...you make a fair point and I was planning that but it is only an elites choice, and henchout claws might mke it feel too bioevolved.

Bring in my money today and I could have this army done by tonight! :eek:

Thanks for the comments everyone. I'll take some final photos of the army at their first taste of warfare at YET's house tomorrow.

Ok, UPDATE:

Purchased new and last fex, so, with the arrival of the mines (thanks mate), the army is effectively complete. Speaking of completion, I FINISHED MY GCSEs TODAY! YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY! Sorry.

With the dakkafex, I have always felt that with four separate gun arms they look crowded. So I thought to create 2 big guns supported by the front arms, with the back arms ammofeeding. Here it is:

Love the Devilfex! I'm starting to wish I wasn't using a magnetized Carnifex for my Devilfex - I always use the same configuration anyway, but it means I'm reluctant to do any really interesting setups like yours.

Pictures saved for inspiration! :D

Ok guys,

They played in a 1500 against a guard army (YET), and absolutly THRASHED!

I lost the shooterbeast, screamerkiller, rendingcrushingclawsyfex and flyrant.

The rest just pwned.


Anyway, this project is now finished. I am happy with the results and want to thank My Evil Twin for support, El-Diablo for spore mines and HiveMinion for just being a legend.

Thanks also to everyone who commented.

Apparantly not finished!

After a year and a bit of finishing the fex's, A nice shiny new HEIROPHANT landed on my doormat, along with a scary bank statement-as yet to be opened. I'm saving myself the horror of written proof that I spent 200 on a model.

So anyway after 8 weeks of waiting it arrived, and I thought that this would be a good place to log it's painting.

One thing though, the model is beautiful, can't fault it, but the front leg bottom talon bit bends. In 12 hours it bent 180 degrees fully. The base it was mounted on was covered in gravel, so the pointed feet stuck in and stayed where they were - but it bent nonetheless.

So, in order to combat this I:

Took four two-inch-long nails and took their heads off.
Glued them in place on each flat side of the claws (after straightening them)
Used greenstuff to fill the gap and cover up the nail.

Whilst they dont look as good, they are now hard as rock, leaving me with only minor bending on the upper part of the legs, which is fine.

ANYWAY, here are the pics:
