I did something like that on my lone zoey. I made it sort of like the zoey had just risen from the grueling biomass beneath itself. maybe I will get pictures for this!

For those whovians out there, I something planned.

Something big.

I'm a big fan of all the ideas other people are using with the original concept of this. I've seen pipes added in, the idea used for mutation, somebody used some chopped sprue to change the terrain a bit, I'm gonna use it to mess with the brains of my Zoe soon.... Way rockin'.

My next idea: What if you put some elmers down on the side of a tank, and just put down 1 big drop of super glue... think it'll look fairly good as battle damage? (eg: hole blasted in the side) If painted appropriately, of course.

Just wondering... could be an easy answer to my prayers, rather than attacking my rhino with a soldering iron...

you would need to be VERY careful you didnt use too much glue for the bullet holes and such!, but i reckon you could pull it off!, would also look amazing if painted well =] =] good luck with that one! =] =]

So I tried this at home with Citadel Modelling PVA Glue and I had some problems. Its been three days and the PVA glue hasn't turned transparent yet. The edges are clear but mostly the glue remains white. It did however create the fantastic texture.

I only used about .5cm in the thickest point and I probed around with my hobby knife and found all the white stuff is still un-dried glue.

I went out to Ben Franklin to try and find some more PVA glue but they didn't have any specific "PVA" glue. I remember someone saying that PVA glue is basically elmer's glue so I picked up some "Elmer's Craft Bond Fabric and Paper glue" which is white Elmer's glue that is acid free (also dries clear). When I tried it out, I found that it also has problems drying clear but I don't seem to get such a nice texture effect as using Citadel PVA.

Anyone have any luck with any Brand of glue Like Tack Glue, or Elemer's Glue all? I would just order what the OP used in the tutorial but I always get robbed on shipping because of where I live.

The superglue I've been using is Crazy Glue.

Thanks!

J.

hey i replyed to your message also... i dont ever wait for it to go completely dry, once the top has tryed thats when you apply the wash or paint, so you are doing it correctly your just too patient lol...
(which in most cases is ok)

it should take about an hour for the top to dry then you can get to work on colours! =] =]

Agreed, elmers takes a long time to fully dry, but when the top is dry, get to work!

I usually let it set overnight for good measure (I'd hate to ruin the detail of the scabbing effect, so...)

So I tried it with "Elmer's Glue All" from Walmart and it worked MUCH better. The flow is a little high for my needs but atleast now I'm on the right track.

Elmer's Craft Bond Fabric and Paper Glue is much thicker but does not create the "wrinkle effect" that I see here on the forums. Elmer's Glue All seems the way to go.

Thanks!

unfortunately the little tyranid "tail" looking thing that rose out of the ground could not take the weight of the comparitively oversized model and snapped.

For those whovians out there, I something planned.

Wow, these look awesome!!

One question, as I'm slightly confuzzled, is it the drops of superglue that make it go all 'crinkly'?

Yes.

SCIENCE TIME!
All glues either have a "resin + hardner" or "certain chemical evaporates" system that creates polymers (chain molecules) to form, thus, the bond between the 2 pieces you are gluing together.

Elmer's glue is water based. When the water is removed (typically via evaporation), it cures.

The "Hardener" for superglue (cyanoacrylate) is water. When water is added (in the correct amount) to cyanoacrylate, it cures.

Therefor...

The Cyanoacrylate sucks the water out of the Elmer's glue, causing the awesome little wrinkle effect we so admirably adore.

Ok, used my brain for the day.

Excellent basing. Definately a must for a venomthrope.

Something I add is a gaunt tail or leg for wound rings. I place small metal rings 6-8mm on these posts to keep track of wounds.

A 3 wound model gets 2 rings. (last wound removes model) A guard retinue or biovore brood gets 3 rings. remove a ring then a model then a ring then a model...

It was so difficult keeping track since so many nids have multi wounds.

Nom Nom Nom sez the carnifex.

I am thinking of creative ideas for another table for my gaming club. Running into this thread, I was thinking of making a Tyranid infestation table. Maybe something like all the outsides of the table having this effect ...and then having this effect in combination with grass a foliage, and then in the middle making it look like a normal grassy terrain. The idea being that it looks like the Tyranids "Creep" is enveloping from all sides.

Question would be, how do you guys think this technique would work on a large scale?

On a large scale, it probably would look pretty wild. The only thing I'd be worried about is if it was cost effective. You can get PVA glue by the gallon, but for a cynoacrylate adhesive, that might be a little hard to come by. Unless if you use it sparingly. Also, if its not completely covered in it as you have mentioned, maybe it might be ok. Please post pics if you do this.

On a large scale, consider where the wind would carry the spores that generate the Nid terraforming terrain. Those areas are where the Nid biostuff would be taking root and they would most likely be shaltered areas in many cases.

I would create at least two levels of terrain, that is, ground level and hilltop (but I would try to go for bare rock on the tops of the hills cuz there would be an explosion of color below).

Then I would tie two visual stories into the board: Gamers eye view and models eye view.

Gamers eye: what you said: Nid life creeping into a pocket of natural life from all around.(Terrain themes being xenos all round and natural in the middle here).

Models eye: Coming over a natural crest to see lots of other natural crests all around- but getting to the edge of that crest to find very prosperous nid life in the 'ground' level below, well sheltered against overhanging cliff walls and so on,

Your bases look excellent. I will be trying this 2 glue technique out as well.

Can't load these pictures at school. But if what I think you are making take effect here, I can use this to make my Zerg Nids creep bases.

Side note. I know GW didn't copy zerg. I know. I play zerg as a master ranked starcraft player and would like to translate that to my tyranids.
