Its my GW's venomthrope lol, They keep saying the codex might arrive today every day i'm in too which has me on edge lol.
Finished all the termigaunts today
Got the hormagaunts inked and painted chickengaunt just to see how they'll look using the scheme
Also started work on my landing pod. I've got it on a base and tried to make it look like its crashed into the gorund, bit like a meteor would
Lots of greenstuff work to do on its rear end still. Had a few ideas for alternate designs i might draw up tonight too
heehee, chicken gaunt. so awesome, really like the landing spore idea, what store did you find it in?
Overall your scheme is excellent and you've executed the job brilliantly, simply a good all round thread.
Leviathan, Nicho Tendril Tyranids.
heres a few sketches of some ideas for the landing spores, im working on the second one though i quite like the idea of the first
What do you guys think? Weapon attachement is the trickiest thing to get around me thinks
I think those few pages are an insight into your warped mind. I think the death squid is probably the best idea though.
Finished the landing spore today, well the modelling of it, still needs a good lick of paint.
Got a few step by step pics of how i've made it...
First bit i did which is basicly the opening for the gribblys to get out
After that i built up some fleshy greenstuff around the exit
I made the lash whip/ grasping tentacles out of wire and green stuff with claws from the Carnifex sprue attached to the ends
I then added a second and third lash whip/grabber
Some pics for scale
Carnifex will have to assume the foetal positon i think lol
Off to a good start I see Andy, keep it up.
Great army, any chance of getting more shots of those gargoyles, how you did the wings specifically?
I may adopt your purple concept, very nice!
hey, really like the spore pod nicho. That was a good idea using that toy. Looks nice next to some nids aswell, good size next to the tyrant.
ahah, hobbycraft. that's doable. thanks nicho
Hormagaunts are nearly done , had a game with my nids today using the new rules and it was quite fun. The mawloc is awesome imo, though after having a landraider destroy most of my gaunts ive invested in a couple of zoan's and a lictor to help get my reserves on even quicker My hive tyrants got the ability that lets a unit outflank and gives plus one to reserves too which, combined with the lictor, should really speed those reserve units and my landing spore up Should have more pics by tomorrow night
Oh and a quick rules question if a weapons strengths double or more a targets toughness it causes instant death so does that mean the target doesnt get an armor save?
Getting an armour save only depends on what armour you have and the Ap of the gun hitting your model. Instant Death have nothing to do with armour saves.
Oh, this looks really good. Love the landing spore, but one thing that might improve it is if you slice of a bit of the "egg", parallel to the ground, so it looks like its has buried itself abit. It looks abit strange now imo.
But other than that, wow! You nids look superb! The carapace looks awesome, and work really well with the purple.
Is it your gargoyles on the second pic from the bottom? They look very nice.

I love that spore pod. Depending on how I feel my Nid army will go once I have the codex in my hands I might very well copy that idea.
I have subscribed to keep an eye on you.
