I bought a second Overkill box, partially to expand the models I had for my genestealer cult and partly to add a small kill team to my Red Coyotes marine chapter.

Naturally this left me with models I cannot use. The Magus and Primus are one offs, and I had no use for five of the marines. I found a buyer for them all pretty quickly, however I did decide upon a use for the second patriarch, a plastic broodlord for a genestealer unit in my tyranid force.

However, Patriarch Ghosar is a large and impressive looking model, so to be a stock standard broodlord I needed to humble him up a little. My solution was a slight reposing of the arms, shaving away all those excessive spikes, and mounting him lower to the ground and on a smaller base.





I also reposed the tail to be behind him. The model is now hunched and compacted, more in line with the plastic broodlord from Space Hulk (which I am also adding to this force) and now looks much more genestealer and much less tyranid.

Once I have him painted, I will take a comparison picture of all three of them.

Nice! I will also use the Patriarch as a Broodlord in my Tyranid army, but I was thinking of keeping it as it is. I think it will be about the same size as the Broodlord from Deathstorm. Haven't assembled either one yet.

That looks like a very genestealer type broodlord as you said :good: Well executed!

Also what do you think will the new broodlord look like? Old one was taken down a few weeks back from GW store.

Haven't got the Deathstorm broodlord, but this guy is about the same size as the plastic broodlord from Space Hulk.

Thank you. :so_happy:

I'm not sure. It's possible they'll re-box one of the plastic variants they have into a smaller kit. Given that the genestealers in this box are different to the genestealers in their normal box, it could be a complete new kit with both. That's me wild guessing though.

I did notice the nid codex become no longer available in the AU online store, so we may know this year.
