I've played tyranids since 3rd ed (with the Alien queen tyrant and preliminary bombardment). I have around 3000pts, painted in the behemoth scheme. I also have a 2000pts collection consisting of older edition models ranging from the grinning rhino fexes to the space crusade warriors, all painted in Old One Eye's colour scheme.
Now gaming wise, I am sorted. However, I do love me some modelling and collecting, evidenced by my Path to Glory warband. So I've decided to add a third collection, based on the Colossus hive fleet.
I aim to use only original zoat miniatures, fantasy versions included. In terms of gaming they will be based on tyranid warriors, and led by a prime.
They will count as the following:
Zoat with Powerfist and gun: Prime
Zoat with one gun and zoat with 2 guns: tyranid warriors
Fantasy zoat with mace and orb: zoanthrope
Zoat with heavy weapon: hive guard
At the moment I have a powerfist zoat, a heavy weapon zoat, 2 zoats with maces and orbs, and 3 zoats with axes. I will be converting the axe zoats to have guns.
Pics to come, any and all suggestions and comments in the meantime will be much appreciated.
