Thank you guys. New project.

Comp entry. Not sure which one yet.

As I always say my models don't tend to stick to the rules much, and with that in mind, Casey's wonderful auction and gifts therein have given me some ideas. My daughter came to me and said "Build me a tyrant worthy of my army."

Well here goes. It's big and a bit kitbashed. I know there are gaps here and there and I have a fair amount of GS work to do, but well you will get the gist.

Thanks for looking, please comment, even if it's to tell me to burn it.

Bugs, hell yeah, they need to burn eventually...
I am not too sure about the warrior plate on the head...you're probably aiming for the alien queen look? If possible you need to biggerize that plate quite a bit...

But I like it still

Keep at it, it shows promise. Will definitely be worthy of any army.

My only issue is that the legs look a little weedy compared to the upper body. May just be the photos, you'll have to judge irl.
You could either bulk up the legs (or use larger ones, if you have any) or make it look like it uses the scything talons to support itself as well as attack, just by posing one down on the ground.

I like the mouth on the end of the tongue

Agree with Dr H - looks a bit top heavy. Maybe another pair of legs/arms supporting the front? They could afford to be bulkier than the hind legs given how much mass appears to be up front. You have the makings of an absolute monster here!

Subscribed! Not sure how I'd missed this so far! Nice to see your progress on the tower all together and those guard look really nice.

I'm glad your having fun with the Nids! I remember packing them up and thinking, 'You know, Cam could do some wonderful things with these extra bits.' I wasn't wrong! I particularly love that you're doing a Hive Tyrant because the other halves of those miniatures served me the same purpose. Extra internets for the Alien Queen vibe!

I agree that he could use a little support for the front end but otherwise it's a rocking concept! Great job mate.

Thank you guys, I really need your input on this one.

Again THANK you to Casey. Will show the Carnifax conversion I have managed from the bits also later.

Now pics in a bit but I have a question, does this qualify as Badass, I am not sure, I mean it's scary and all but not badass, maybe I will just use it in the dio for that comp, need a suitably badass bod to have a go at it maybe. What do you guys think.

Also I have done some GS work, and taking on board your suggestions I have beefed up the back legs a bit, and will be sorting front legs to semi support the front end. Pics showing what I have done to date.

I'm going to regret saying this but if it had some kind of Egg laying mechanism then it would have a bad as indeed.

Loving the most recent one. The front legs are good for stabbing, and it looks like it can vent spores and fire darts. Might be more of a support nid, but still a bruiser.

Looks absolutely stunning Cam! I think the legs look just fine. Whoever is complaining about them is just brainwashed by some GW sculpt or something. Besides, it's an Alien, it can look any way you want it to. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Keep up the great work!
