He's worth the effort, he really appreciates stuff like this. Besides, hes kicked my ass with Eldar, Chaos, Orks and no doubt his Space Wolves once he finishes them. I told him if his Eldar Wraithlord killed my carnifex in hand to hand without help I would give him a spare head as a trophy to include in a converstion of the wraithlord overcoming a carnifex.

I dont think it ever happened... but like I said, if he deserved a trophy for anything, then there he is...

That is a very cool conversion. The fact that is was a present was even nicer. You did a really good job on the converison.

I saw the tital that thought "what the hell??? someone must be smoking something seriously nasty"

Then i had a look at the pics...

and all caring about the non-fluffyness of it went out the window. Its a fricken awesome model. Realy want to see it when its all painted. It also gives me ideas (hybrid half-mechanical tyrannofex anyone?)

I REJECT YOUR REALITY AND SUBSTITUTE MY OWN

Yeah, 7 months... It was just an idea back then. I ended up getting 5 new carnifex's out of it though. I just wanted a body, so I bid on a load on E-Bay... and won them all . I didnt work on it that often, other projects on the go at the same time, and a few times when I was scared to touch it. Like once I'd made the 3 arms... I was worried about ruining it by putting them on! Same when I had to put the box on the back... Same when I had to decorate the box and make it Orky... I kept stopping for weeks at a time just worried about doing anything wrong and irriversable. Not to mention that at the start I was like "7 months... thats PLENTY of time". I finished it about a week before his birthday, through that week I was organising the illustration and page layout and it got laminated 10 minutes before I gave the whole thing to him.

I know its not something standard and 'fluffy' (took me while to figure out what people meant by that!), but I never intended it to be. I wrote rules for it, commissioned a friend who illustrates to do a picture for it (the face of which is in the top left of this post) and gave it a layout like the book... complete with origins/background. The manager at the local store even laminated it for me

Everyone keeps saying how much they want to see it painted, but I garentee that no one wants to see it painted as much as me!

Thanks everyone, I really apprecatiate everyones kind words. I was really worried about posting my work online for the first time. So seriously guys, thanks very much.

Otherthings in the pipeline include...

A flying Carnifex variant (started before 5th Ed rules)
A Thousand Sons Baneblade (to be used as standard or special custom rules)
A Bloodletter Herald (for a friend)
A Killteam of Ork Tyranid Hybrids
Some lightly converted Thousand Sons Terminators
Craploads of scenery

...and probably some other stuff in a box somewhere that I'll come accross and thing... oh yeah, I forgot about that. I really need to get back into painting though because I havent done any for so long.

Wow. What a great birthday present. I am really jealous. It looks really nice [+rep]. I love looted tyranid monstrous creatures, they're so funny when they're done properly. I would like to see it painted and your other efforts so I'll follow this thread hoping to hear more. Do put links in here if you have any other work and then I'll see it more easily.
