Default Tyranidosaurus Rex

I really didn't know what else to call this.

It's tervigon legs, a trygon torso and head and zoanthrope head carapace.












What you think?

Looks awesome. Did it take much work convincing the kits to go together? It doesn't look like you've done any putty work.

What will this model count as on the tabletop?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

The tervigon leg section is designed to join to a torso at a right angle, so I had to hack that away and use the trygon joining piece. It will require a bit of sculpting to clean up. As well as the join of trygon head to zoanthrope carapace, which also left quite the gap.

I had planned to use either the hive tyrant or more likely the trygon as the starting point, then use the mutation rules in the 3e tyranid codex to calculate a new statline and points cost. It would not be anything spectacularly overpowered.

Failing that, or if I don;t get an opponent's permission, I'd probably run it as a trygon or simply not use it at all.

Thank you. Now the tricky part is making something out of what's left.

Just tell the Guardsmen to keep still...her vision keys off movement, so she won't be able to see them then...

Sadly that theory was long since disproved...

That is also an option, but I don't have access to its rules right now.
