Hello fellow Warseers. I'm hoping to start this log and have it go on for many moons. I am having trouble staying constant and after 2 and a half years of being into this hobby all I have to show for it is a heaping pile of plastic half painted and a 2K lizardman army in a box, half-arsed. So I will use this log not only as a motavational thread, but also as a way of showing off my mediocre skills, but creative imagination. So let's begin!

First I have a project i've been contemplating for some time now. A kroot/tyranid hybrid. I love kroot, but they don't fit in my Chaos army as mercinaries and I love tyranids but after a while they really bore me. So why not combine the two? This is a Kroot who ate a gaunt and I will use these(unless I get lazy) as gaunts in a tyranid army.

I definitely like what I see here, but can I pester you for another view? Particularly interested in the gun and the waist joint ;)

No problem, the pics aren't all that fantastic though.

I was also thinking of just replacing the niddy gun with the kroot guns as I like them waaay better and the Fleshboarer seems a little too heavy for them. I'll get some better pics soon.

Wow, that looks very cool, great idea

you should keep the nid weapons, metallics dont work on nids as they are pure living organisms so kroot weapons wouldnt look to good IMO.

That would be cool seeing them as a whole army. I too think that you should keep the nid weapons. I think that it would look weird with normal Kroot weapons.

Very well, the kroot weapons stay. But here's my next idea that I'm sure I will have to force myself to make a million more of - the kroot stealer! Now who's stealing the genes?

I'm having trouble comming up with limbs 5 and 6. I might just leave him with 4 limbs, but who knows. I'm working on some more stuff, maybe some updates tomarrow, maybe I'll be lazy, who knows?

He's got some room about 5mm under the first set of arms that you could squeeze another set if need be, a little GS and it'd be great.

I'm really liking the look of the kroot gaunts, they look kinda centaurian. The kroot stealer reminds me of Navaros biodiversity project
