Very cool. Recognizably Tyranids but while GW seems to still be working out how to move away from Giger while somehow re-appropriating whatever StarCraft Zerg appropriated from earlier GW Tyranids, your conversions bring them back into a much bigger Sci Fi imaginary tradition. Looking forward to where you'll be going with these!

Spines + tentacle face = something completely alien and unique. Very scary!

Love him <3 The added gribble factor (tm) but also the sense of motion. I've always dug Tyranid warriors but damn are they super static minis - and always have been, from back in the bucktooth 2E days The dynamism is really welcome (goes for the genestealer's vaulting pose as well).

EDIT: Cute tail stripes as well

As ever, great mods McGibs. The colours work well to complement the tweaks too

Another brilliant solution to an awkward Nid amalgam. Love the colors, including the purple streaks

Why have a face when all you need is gun?

Serious love all of your work McGibs!

Seems like your Nids have evolved to be even more efficient! Great work as per usual

I finished up my Land-Speeder conversion to add some zippy firepower to my Marines. Speeders are cool, but I've never been a fan of the exposed crews and went poking around the internet for some conversion inspiration. I came across this fantastic one modeled after the Diamonback from Starcraft II by fellow Dakkanought Flinty, and I basically just copied it whole hog. The little hover feet make it look a lot more agile than just the "flying shoe" silhouette.





This is probably the most involved plasticard build I've done, and required a lot of measuring out weird angles on the computer, printing out a template, and cutting it from there. The joins are a little squadgy in places, but overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Sleek. Good retro-futuristic vibes instead of the usual gothic.

I like your addition of the ridge running down the center, good silhouette. And you're 100% right about the feet, it makes it look so much more maneouverable.

Because GW did my poor Repulsor Executioner dirty, I decided to make a swap-out turret so I can also use it as a regular Repulsor.
I consolidated the weapons a bit into "bullets/ missiles/lasers", because frankly, no one can remember them all anyways.

Love the Librarian, super evocative. I'm also reminded of the Astartes animation with the hoses and mask and spooky orb of warp magicks

And props on another support robot, great concept for these lesser heroes. Delicious af floating tank as well!

Thanks guys!
The astartes psyker brought me great joy when I saw his simmilar mirrored black helmet. I wish I could somehow pull off some glowing-skull effect from inside the helmet. Maybe flip a switch when I fail a Perils of the Warp?

I got through my five man Blade(taser?)Guard squad. Obviously the blinged out stock versions weren't going to fit with my army's clean sci-fi theme, so I went for a pretty straightforward "breaching team" look instead. The shields are from the Necromunda Subjugator kit and worked out perfectly.
