Default Modelling Doom of Malan'tai

Recently I have been using a standard Zoanthorpe as Doom of Malan'tai on proxy, I am planning to take my Hive Fleet to a tournament in a few months and would like to take Doom along, however the tournament has a very strict WYSIWYG rule so I will not be able to proxy an ordinary Zoanthorpe as Doom. I will be buying a new Zoanthorpe model and converting. I am looking to do a basic conversion to make the model look more like Doom, I don't really want to go hacking bits off of models. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

I made one . Looks pretty good, but not as good as my PoM, Tervigon, Mycetic Spore, Tyrannofex, blablablablabla...

Basically, I used a normal zoan, put him on an Eldar structure, and added Apoxie to his head to make vents.

I've seen great ones on the internet though. A really good one is where he used Scything Talons as arms.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Most people use a warrior body and the head scales of a mawloc.

Do not fear the Hive Mind for it is good and we are all together. . .Or you will be! *Chomp*

Or just buy one of those "old school" Zoanthropes that acually had legs and looked like mutated Warriors... I managed to buy one off eBay for less than the price of a new metal one...

I would think that is much too small. That image in the book does not look that tiny. Also the FAQ says it is just as a Zoan, so I take that as it has to be at least that big.

I agree. I think the best option is to use a Zoan and convert that up. Watch this space

I used the old edition zoanthrope, added the Mawloc carapace, and a few of the vanes from the mawloc to the back, quick and easy and looks different from the normal zoans
