Quite a long while ago I posted a half finished Winged Hive Tyrant I started to convert and thought I'd post up the finished result. Quick run through what I've changed:

* Enhansed Senses Carnifex Head instead of the usual Hive Tyrant head. On this I've added the horn usually found on the Hive Tyrant head.
* Green stuffed Balrog wings onto the body.
* Changed the original spikes on the wings for Scything Talons.

It was a pretty simple conversion but turned out to make it look completely different. And it's definitely one of the biggest Hive Tyrants I've seen.

If I ever get it painted I'll post pictures, but don't count on it :wink:





Comments and criticism more than welcome :)

Cheers.

Thanks Gareth, could come in handy when I get round to painting them. That colour will work quite well with my planned colour scheme too :)

Very nice!!! You used the same wings I did, but put them sideways rather thn upright. The head Is also amazing but, why is it all white? Is it a base coat or some kind of counterfeit model...

It's not been painted yet, the white is just a Skull White spray Undercoat. Thanks guys :)

Balrog wings are the best for the flyrant. The structure suits the nids and they are big enough so that it is at least possible for the creature to fly. On the other hand, the completed model can be very difficult to transport.
Brilliant. It looks perfect.rep

Thanks a lot guys! Really appreciate the kind comments and the rep :)

@Deneris - not really no, unless you had a very very generous offer in mind :p

Probably one of the best things I love about Tyranids; with a nice set of wings, even the smallest of models can look amazing. In this case, it really adds an enormous epic feeling to a model.

Thanks calon. Nids sure do look great with a good set of wings. I have a group of 5 Winged Warriors using the FW wings too, those are lovely wings.
