He can also ID stuff with his implant attack and take out vehicles rather efficiently. He's a fun unit, especially against guard

He's not brilliant at tank busting, not being a MC, but it's possible with rending claws.

I just need some wings, I'm converting an old Lictor into one. The body and all works, just take the legs off and put a different head on and wings. I saw one like that once, it looked pretty good.

the really scary part of the parasite is hes an ic... so he can swing in with 10-20 other cheap nids and make sure he gets his chance to do his thang

It takes a pack of Wolves to tree a Lion... here is hopping the new DA codex reflects that.

Yeah, I'd missed he was an IC until recently. Now I'm making him a gargoyle bodyguard...

For my part, I've just got a finecast Lictor, whose talons match the Parasites picture beautifully. Rotate the lower body, add some detail and a new head... I've also just bought some vargheist wings off eBay, with a little work they'll be perfect. A secondary set of gargoyle wings, some hormogaunt talons and he'll be sorted. Now I just need the time to convert him.

I'll just toss up my shitty video about how I made mine since a lot of people are thinking about ways of conversion.


It's really bad LOL... like god awful X_X

I find it difficult to get enough hits/wounds with the Parasite to generate the sea of rippers it would appear are possible.


And I just put gargoyle wings on a Ravener body. Worked great.
