Out of curiosity, what did any of you peeps use to make them? A miniature has never been produced, and there are no pictures of them.

What did anybody make them out of? I was going to try Rippers, but they seem too small. Maybe use a full Gaunt body?

40K/Warhammer Tzeentch Screamers. They are a little large, but look the part.

Too big, and not nearly as armored as they should look. I see a Kraken as a big series of overlapping armor plates, with a small area representing the weaponry.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

I have seen them made from symetrical pairings of weapon biomorphs joined together at the 'armpit'. Just flatten off the rounded shoulder socket glue together and mount on a base.

Easy done. Its good because extra nid weapons are commonplace.

Sorry. I cant provide pics because it is not my fleet.

It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion. By the juice of the brew my thoughts aquire speed, my mind becomes strained, the strain becomes a warning. It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion.

I used the escort drones (the one that looks like a 40k devourer) with the head crest part of a warrior on top, and other doo-dads as needed for weaponry.

I sculpted my own out of epoxy putty. They are beefier than standard escorts. They are composed of a 5 segment carapace with an exhaust port behind it. Using dorsal weapon mounts made from the gaunt gun sprue.

I haven't made any with feeder tentacles, but I plan on doing so out of green stuff and wire.

I'll take a few pics and post them.

MY fleet is a mix of the actual Tyranid models and ships I've made using parts from the 40K Tyranid models. I try to make each "class" of Tyranid ship/monster look the same. This way I don't have a fleet made up of entirely unique models that confuses myself and my opponent.

Cruises use the body of a Termagant as a base to start with for the "hull". Escorts are made using either spore mines or weapons glued together as the base, Devourers are really good for this.

You can't fix stupid.
