i know :(
the only thing that is stopping me from wroking on it is that i have run out of green stuff and hav'nt had the oppotunitie to get more. when i do i was going to add another pair of scything talons so it fits in with the rest of the nids and then green stuff it up.

thanks, i was going for a leechy creepy look rather then a "zoanphrope with a different head" look.

did some green stuff work on the doom, its liturally the first layer and i was only really working on the main body segment. at the moment it is looks like one of those conversions that could tip either way and be a write off or be awesome.
anyway pics below.

I like it, you've got some great ideas and conversions going on!I really am impressed with how good the tyrannofex looks, you have done a good job to make it look so seamless, and it doesn't look stuck on either! now only if you could make a conversion kit....

Remarkable improvement in your painting, especially the big bugs - the edge highlight was way to thick previously. I do like the darker, more organic paint scheme. For some reason, it looks particularly good on the Termigaunts!

Thanks Arakasi, did'nt expect to see you dropping in here

Just relised i had'nt said what im aiming for yet, ive set aside 1500 points to fully paint and finish from my nids. That way i can start gaming with them again, as i play more games i will tweak my list and then paint other stuff to go in it. well thats the plan anyway.

Just need a plan now that i have found my self in the position where i have three 40k armies and only one that im really proud off.

anyway enough jabber



and then some pics of my doom of mantai conversion. stilll a WIP



anyway thanks for looking

thanks Imperial Renegade

On the posing front i do take the time to try and make everything bigger then a gaunt look a bit more dynamic and different, thanks for noticing (it usually gets over looked)

Anyway i have made some progress on the dom and on the warriors with claws, better pics will be up of them when they are actally finished finished but for now a shot of my army so far and some nice fighty shots.



30 gaunts

hivetyrant- wings- 2 scything talons- hive comander

6 warriors with deathspitters

8 warriours with rending claws

carni with scything talons (which i might drop for a DOM and a prime when it is done)

tyranofex with rupture cannon

woo almost 1500 points



well thanks for looking and commenting
will be back soonish with more pics, watch this space

So i only recently got to get a look at the new rule book and therefor only recently managed to rejig my list for 6th edition, still need to playtest it tough but i think it will be ok.

3 zoanphropes- spoor pod Anti tank (synapse)

30 termagaunts Horde

tervigon- catalyst, crushing claws Horde/ increasing efficiancy (synapse)

30 hormagaunts- adrenal glands Horde

20 hormagaunts- toxin sacs Horde

4 warroiurs- deathspitters Elite shooting (synapse)

4 warriours- rending Elite assult(synapse)

flyrant- wings, paroxsym, psycic scream, adrenal glands, hive comander Anti air/ Anti tank (synapse)

1495

warlord traits: personal

psycic stuff: biomancy

was'nt sure about weather to add the adrenalglands and hive comander to the tyrant or weather to add another warriour with death spitter. but will play test and see.

did some work on the zoanphropes as they are in the new list ans should have them finished next time i can paint



also did some basing on the tervigon although it still needs quite a redo paint wise.
I wanted my tervigon to look more like a psychic power house rather then a bloated brood nest, thought it could just teleport gaunts to the battle from else where or use its mind to mold them from biomass or something else suitabally psychic'y rather then just have them growing inside of it.



anyway thanks for looking

Nah its just so that it is the same size as the standard tervigon's base, just so its not messing with any rules.

Progress on the tervigon



I only really redid the carapace and some of the smaller details but i think it is definatly an improvement over the last one.

Also i did some detail work on the zoanphropes brains and some of the pipes, im thinking im going to go with a greenish glow coming off of the brains if i can bu i will see how it goes, anyway pics below



And a shot of everythng i did thing morning, just need to finsih the bases and the smaller details and then they will be done, then i just have to finish a hormagaunts squad and buy another 24 ot 30 hormagauts and then im done with the list painting...... Although i still have a few draws full of models to redo, but for now im almost finished
