Default Hive Fleet Pyrusta Grows

So I have been hard at work on converting new nids and have so far made two very nice ones. So I thought I might post them and show you guys all what I have accomplished, cause I know I'm proud of them thus far.

First my Tyranid Prime. Now his body is done but I need to customize his weapons so they stand out from the regular warriors as well.


Next I have been working on my magnetized Tyrant. I got two big conversions done for him.
The monstrous devourer.

Close up

and the Swarmlord Bone Sabers

Also you might notice that he has some mandibles to make him more fearsome looking. I have gotten alot of complements at my local gaming store for this one.
And last for the first installment is the base for said tyrant. I wanted to show how strong he was by having a destroyed rhino upon it. After mush building and wrecking I have this.

I'm not entirely sure about how much it hangs over the side of the base, but it does look really cool. Now just need to bend his legs and tail to better fit on the base there so that he will be all set and awesome looking.

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

Compliments on the size of the swords from the Swordmaster himself(Varakir).
You have done well my son. These are spectacular even without paint. Not hard to recognise the swarmlord, those weapons are spectacular. My only gripe is the angle on the devourer tips. I would have faced them axially along the length of the weapon rather than radially. Still a spectacular weapon though.
Finally the nid prime is perfect. Enough extras to make him stand out without going overboard. Nice work indeed.

Rep for the swarm.

I love how much you've increased the size of the tyranid prime, and so fluently aswell, on top of that the spikes are very believable... IE you didnt just slap it on and call it a victory, very nice work.

Fantastic! Great job with the conversions, especially the tyranid prime. The greenstuff work is superb!

Top quality. The devourer looks great, but the swords look awesome, you've managed to make it look like he is swinging those bad boys in a wall of steel (bone?).

Great stuff. +rep.

Alright, so here we will be showing the development of my Parasite.
First all the pieces placed and started.



Next I have completed some fleshing out of the tail and head. As well as converted some rending claws to look like the codex image.



A close up of those hands


And of the head

The Parasite is shaping up nicely mate, the Claws are brutal looking and the greenstuffing on the head is fantastic. Was the idea to make it look like a Genestealer head as they're known for laying eggs in people? If so, excellent job!

Default Update

Here's another update on my Parasite. He now has the foundation for his wings. Also placed is his head and the tail is done. All that is left is to put on his other arms and work out his wings and neck. Almost done.
